HTWK and University of Leipzig offer joint computer science module
04.02.2015, Author: Reinhard Franke, Press Officer - Editorial PODIUM

With the beginning of this year summer term the Leipzig University of Applied Sciences (HTWK) and the University of Leipzig starts the first joint lecture within the joint module "Business Information Systems". On 7 April at 9.15 clock computer science students of both educational institutions sitting together at the auditorium 19 of the University - and their teachers, Prof. Thomas Riechert (Faculty of computer science, mathematics and science, HTWK), Prof. Klaus-Peter Ensign (Faculty of mathematics and computer science, University of Leipzig) and Dr. Stefan Kühne (Head of Research and Development at the University of computing center) come from both institutions.

The Teamwork is made possible by the joint project "ProKooperation" (Profile coordination and cooperation), which was launched last year. Background: With the Saxon Higher Education Development Plan and the university-specific target agreements the Saxon government forces a profile sharpening and strengthening in the higher education landscape.

"We want to create an efficient model of joint teaching and develop a best-practice model," says Christiane Zocher, responsible at HTWK side for "ProKooperation". Together with her colleague Dorothea Brown at the University of Leipzig she will participate in the first joint lecture on 7 April to present the background to the project the students. "Later, the experience gained in other subjects coordination and joint actions to promote students will be helpful," said Zocher.

As part of the Girls' Day 2015 I offer the workshop "Queries to Wikipedia" for interested students from the 8th to 11th grades.

Registration: http://www.girls-day.de/aktool/ez/eventvcard.aspx?id=20669

  • 9:00 - 10:00: Opening Ceremony: Welcome and Introduction of HTWK (University of Applied Science);
    Location: HTWK, Geutebrück Bau, Karl-Liebknecht-Str. 132, 04277 Leipzig, Room G 119
  • 10:15 -- 12:00: Workshop by Prof. Dr. Thomas Riechert
  • Faculty of Computer Science, Mathematics and Natural Sciences

Typically we use the Wikipedia Encyclopedia for search on information about certain concepts, events, cities or people. In computer science this kind of web information is also called resources.
In addition to textual articles, semantically structured information will be available on these resources, for example, provided using the so-called info boxes. During the workshop you will have a look on the data representation of the Wikipedia and we will learn to answer complex questions with the help of a semantic queries and corresponding computer science tools.

You are welcome to have your own questions that are not easy to answer with a simple Wikipedia search. The following Wikipedia article recommended in preparation for the workshop.

From 01.10. to 2.10. HTWK, the University of Leipzig, TU Cottbus and the Gesellschaft für Informatik (GI) organize the national Computer Science Student Conference - SKILL 2015.

SKILL 2015 is aimed to present students work of students of computer science and related disciplines with a focus on computer science. There are no topics set for the call, any contributions close to computer science topics are welcome.

Submitted papers will be reviewed by three members of the program committee. Accepted papers will be published in the Proceedings of the Annual Meeting of Gesellschaft für Informatik (GI) (INFORMATIK 2015). Outstanding contributions receive prizes.

Papers can be submitted until April 13, 2015. For questions regarding the preparation of the paper feel free to contact your supervising faculty or directly me. Detailed information about SKILL 2015 can be found on the conference website http://skill.informatik.uni-leipzig.de.

Within the winter semester 2014/2015 I teach the following courses at the HTWK and the Leipzig School of Media.

  • Computer science for civil engineers (1. Semester Bachelor Bauingenieur)
  • Computer Networks II / Internet-based information systems (5. Semester Bachelor Informatik/Medieninformatik)
  • Introduction to Scientific Writing (3. Semester Bachelor Medieninformatik)
  • Basics of Internet technologies (1. Semester Master Cross Media Management)
  • Basics of mobile e-business (3. Semester Master Mobile Marketing)

Nerd but SKILLedThe German Students Conference on Computer Science (SKILL) addresses students of computer science and related disciplines. The conference provides a platform for students to present their research projects. The focus of the conference is on student works from seminars, workshops or extracurricular activities.

The Workshop on Data Management and Electronic Resource Management in Libraries (DERM 2014) as part of the INFORMATIK 2014 has its focus on the transition from traditional information systems in libraries to web infrastructure using semantic web and linked data technologies.

The workshop organized in cooperation between the Leipzig University of Applied Science (HTWK), the Leipzig University Library, the Institute for Applied Informatics e.V., the Saxon State and University Library and the Avantgarde Labs GmbH, addresses both data, knowledge and software engineers, as well users in the IT departments of libraries and information providers and other interested users.

In addition to the accepted talks,

  • Design and Implementation of a Library Metadata Management Framework and its Application in Fuzzy Data Deduplication and Data Reconciliation with Authority Data
    Martin Czygan
  • AMSL – Managing Electronic Resources for Libraries Based on Semantic Web
    Andreas Nareike, Natanael Arndt, Norman Radtke, Sebastian Nuck, Leander Seige, Thomas Riechert
  • Quantitative Analyses in Global and Area Studies using Graph-based Filtering of Heterogeneous Catalogue Data
    Thomas Efer, Ninja Steinbach-Hüther

are two keynotes and a panel discussion will take place, in cooperation with other workshops on semantic technologies.

  • Programming the Global Brain Semantic Web: Large-Scale Graph-based Human-Machine Computation
    Abraham Bernstein, Universität Zürich
  • Graphs, Language & Metadata – Where Semantics and BigData Intersect
    Valentin Zacharias, codecentric AG

Abstract:

The specification of requirements is a decisive phase in the software engineering process. A special challenge is the collaboration with prospective users of the software application or service. Therefore, the most important step is the development of a common understanding among all stakeholders of the software development process, e.g. through elicitation, priorization and discussion of requirements among users, software developers, project managers or service providers. This thesis introduces the SoftWiki methodology for implementing a requirements engineering process. The presented methodology is based on research within the fields of agile software engineering and agile knowledge engineering. The SoftWiki methodology includes a formal requirements engineering vocabulary based on the description language OWL, a prototype for the realisation of the methodology and a process for information integration in the general software development process. An application scenario in which the described problem occurs, concerns especially web applications, that are typically used by large, distributed online communities, as well as open source projects and their communities where software developers, users and integrators develop software in collaboration. Other application scenarios include cross-functional software applications in large enterprises as well as applications in E-Government. An evaluation of the methodology applied in these fields is provided within this thesis.
