1 February 2017: Congratulations to lab members John Wondoh, Georg Grossmann, and Markus Stumptner for being awarded Best Paper at APCCM 2017 for the paper titled: Dynamic Temporal Constraints in Business Processes. The paper investigates the handling of temporal constraints that may change during the execution of a business processes.

November 15th: At the Data-to-Decisions Conference held recently, the Integrated Law Enforcement (ILE) Team, of which KSE Lab is a member, was awarded the National Security Impact Award. This award recognises the team making the greatest contribution to national security outcomes: now and in the future. The ILE program of the D2D CRC aims to provide police forces and analysts with uniform access to integrated information located in diverse data sources. The award acknowledges that the platform developed to date has significant potential to enhance the work of intelligence analysts from a range of agencies.

September 2016: Dr Georg Grossmann was appointed Steering Committee Chair for the IEEE International Conference on Enterprise Computing (EDOC).

17 August 2016: KSE Lab is taking part in the 3rd International Workshop on Multi-Level Modelling (MULTI’16) to be held in conjunction with MODELS’2016 in October. Workshop co-chair Georg Grossmann (of KSE Lab) would like to encourage you to attend and join the discussion to solidify what Multi-Level Modelling means to the modelling paradigm at large.

Be sure to check out the presentation of our accepted paper: A Feature-based Comparison Framework of Multi-Level Modeling Approaches and Tools, Muzaffar Igamberdiev, Georg Grossmann, and Markus Stumptner
