Institute of Information Systems and Marketing (IISM)

Welcome

We create value from information.   About Us

We do so by:

  • developing methods to generate insights about organizations and customers from small and big data
  • generating empirical knowledge of individual and group behavior in markets
  • designing digital systems for organizations and the society
  • shaping the digital transformation of organizations and society.
 

With 7 professors  and associated research groups we contribute to research, education and innovation in the fields of information systems and marketing.

Mit Gemeinwohl zur Bioökonomie
Mit Gemeinwohl zur Bioökonomie

Die Vereinten Nationen (UN) haben 2015 die Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) verabschiedet, zu deren Erreichung bioökonomische Konzepte wesentlich beitragen können. Dies gelingt am besten, wenn soziale, ökologische und ökonomische Anforderungen in einem ausgewogenen Verhältnis zueinander stehen – ein schwieriges Unterfangen, wie z.B. die Interessenskonflikte um den Hambacher Forst gezeigt haben.

New Publication in IEEE Transactions on Affective Computing: To Be or Not to Be in Flow at Work: Physiological Classification of Flow using Machine Learning
New Publication in IEEE Transactions on Affective Computing: To Be or Not to Be in Flow at Work: Physiological Classification of Flow using Machine Learning

The focal role of flow in promoting desirable outcomes in companies, such as increased employees’ well-being and performance, led scholars to study flow in the context of work. However, current measurement approaches which assess flow via self-report scales after task execution are limited due to obtrusiveness and a lack of real-time support. Hence, new measurement approaches must be created to overcome these limitations.
