Information Systems & Engineering

The Information Systems & Engineering group consists of the research group Information Systems & Service Design headed by Prof. Dr. Alexander Mädche and the research group Information & Market Engineering headed by Prof. Dr. Christof Weinhardt.

The research group Information Systems & Service Design (ISSD)  focuses its research on the understanding and design of intelligent, user-centered digital service systems for enterprises and society. The research follows the basic idea of research on digital service systems being a fundamentally sociotechnical and interdisciplinary matter, following a behavioral science as well as a design science research paradigm. Practical relevancy of our research is strongly emphasized through tight cooperation with practice.

The research group IM  focuses on market engineering and the design of services and incentives in distributed systems. A key factor for our success is the structured, systematic and theoretically founded approach towards the analysis, design, quality assurance and continuous development of markets and incentive schemes. Consequently, our research projects develop their full interdisciplinarity together with partners from industry and science.
