Cognitive Decision Support for Industrial Product Life Cycles: A Position Paper

Proceedings of the Eleventh International Conference on Advanced Cognitive Technologies and Applications (COGNITIVE 2019), Marta Franova, Charlotte Sennersten, Jayfus T. Doswell, IARIA, Venice, Italy, 2019

Konferenz
Current trends in manufacturing lead to more intelligent products, produced in global supply chains in shorter cycles, taking more and complex requirements into account. To manage this increasing complexity, cognitive decision support systems, building on data analytic approaches and focusing on the product life cycle, stages seem a promising approach. With two high-tech companies (world market leader in their domains) from Austria, we are approaching this challenge and jointly develop cognitive decision support systems for three real world industrial use cases. Within this position paper, we introduce our understanding of cognitive decision support and we introduce three industrial use cases, focusing on the requirements for cognitive decision support. Finally, we describe our preliminary solution approach for each use case and our next steps.

Finding traces of self-regulated learning in activity streams

ACM Conference on Learning Analytics and Knowledge, LAK , ACM, ACM, 2018

Konferenz
This paper aims to identify self-regulation strategies from students' interactions with the learning management system (LMS). We used learning analytics techniques to identify metacognitive and cognitive strategies in the data. We define three research questions that guide our studies analyzing i) self-assessments of motivation and self regulation strategies using standard methods to draw a baseline, ii) interactions with the LMS to find traces of self regulation in observable indicators, and iii) self regulation behaviours over the course duration. The results show that the observable indicators can better explain self-regulatory behaviour and its influence in performance than preliminary subjective assessments.

Learning analytics for workplace and professional learning

Proceedings of the Sixth International Conference on Learning Analytics & Knowledge, ACM, 2016

Konferenz
Recognizing the need for addressing the rather fragmented character of research in this field, we have held a workshop on learning analytics for workplace and professional learning at the Learning Analytics and Knowledge (LAK) Conference. The workshop has taken a broad perspective, encompassing approaches from a number of previous traditions, such as adaptive learning, professional online communities, workplace learning and performance analytics. Being co-located with the LAK conference has provided an ideal venue for addressing common challenges and for benefiting from the strong research on learning analytics in other sectors that LAK has established. Learning Analytics for Workplace and Professional Learning is now on the research agenda of several ongoing EU projects, and therefore a number of follow-up activities are planned for strengthening integration in this emerging field.

Head Start: Improving Academic Literature Search with Overview Visualizations based on Readership Statistics

Web Science 2013, 2013

Konferenz
At the beginning of a scientific study, it is usually quite hardto get an overview of a research field. We aim to addressthis problem of classic literature search using web data. Inthis extended abstract, we present work-in-progress on aninteractive visualization of research fields based on readershipstatistics from the social reference management systemMendeley. To that end, we use library co-occurrences as ameasure of subject similarity. In a first evaluation, we findthat the visualization covers current research areas withineducational technology but presents a view that is biasedby the characteristics of readers. With our presentation, wehope to elicit feedback from the Websci’13 audience on (1)the usefulness of the prototype, and (2) how to overcomethe aforementioned biases using collaborative constructiontechniques.

Linked Data Query Wizard: A Tabular Interface for the Semantic Web

ESWC 2013, LNCS 7882, P. Cimiano et al., Springer, Heidelberg, 2013

Konferenz
Linked Data has become an essential part of the Semantic Web. A lot of Linked Data is already available in the Linked Open Data cloud, which keeps growing due to an influx of new data from research and open government activities. However, it is still quite difficult to access this wealth of semantically enriched data directly without having in-depth knowledge about SPARQL and related semantic technologies. In this paper, we present the Linked Data Query Wizard, a prototype that provides a Linked Data interface for non-expert users, focusing on keyword search as an entry point and a tabular interface providing simple functionality for filtering and exploration.

Proceedings of {ECTEL} meets {ECSCW} 2013, the Workshop on Collaborative Technologies for Working and Learning, Paphos, Cyprus, September, 21, 2013

CEUR Workshop Proceedings, 2013

Konferenz
With this workshop, we brought together the European communities of technology-enhanced learning, which typically meets at the ECTEL, and of computer-supported cooperative work, which typically meets at the ECSCW. While the ECTEL community has traditionally focused on technology support for learning, be it in formal learning environments like schools, universities, etc. or in informal learning environments like workplaces, the ECSCW community has traditionally investigated how computers can and do mediate and influence collaborative work, in settings as diverse as the typical “gainful employment” situations, project work within university courses, volunteer settings in NGOs etc. Despite overlapping areas of concerns, the two communities are also exploiting different theories and methodological approaches. Within this workshop, we discussed issues that are relevant for both communities, and have the potential to contribute to a more lively communication between both communities.

On the Way to a Science Intelligence: Visualizing TEL Tweets for Trend Detection

Sixth European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning (EC-TEL 2011), Springer, 2011

Konferenz
This paper presents an adaptable system for detecting trends based on the micro-blogging service Twitter, and sets out to explore to what extent such a tool can support researchers. Twitter has high uptake in the scientific community, but there is a need for a means of extracting the most important topics from a Twitter stream. There are too many tweets to read them all, and there is no organized way of keeping up with the backlog. Following the cues of visual analytics, we use visualizations to show both the temporal evolution of topics, and the relations between different topics. The Twitter Trend Detection was evaluated in the domain of Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL). The evaluation results indicate that our prototype supports trend detection but reveals the need for refined preprocessing, and further zooming and filtering facilities.

Evaluating Adaptive Work-integrated Learning Systems: From the Lab to the Field

ECTEL 2011, Palermo, Italy, 20-23 September 2011, Springer, 2011

Konferenz
Evaluation frameworks have been presented that suggest layeredevaluation of adaptive systems along two dimensions: (i) the softwaredevelopment cycle, and (ii) the component of the adaptive system that shall belooked at. We argue that a third dimension is crucial: the question whether anevaluation should take place in the lab or in the field. We present a refinedsystematization of evaluation approaches using the evaluation of the adaptiveWIL system APOSDLE as an example.

The role of Reflection in Maturing Organizational Know-how

Proceedings of the 1st European Workshop on Awareness and Reflection in Learning Networks, Palermo, Italy, September 21, 2011, Reinhardt, W., Ullmann, T. D., Scott, P., Pammer, V., Conlan, O., Berlanga, A., 2011

Konferenz
The Knowledge Maturing Phase Model has been presented as a model aligning knowledge management and organizational learning. The core argument underlying the present paper is that maturing organizational knowhow requires individual and collaborative reflection at work. We present an explorative interview study that analyzes reflection at the workplace in four organizations in different European countries. Our qualitative findings suggest that reflection is not equally self-evident in different settings. A deeper analysis of the findings leads to the hypothesis that different levels of maturity of processes come along with different expectations towards the workers with regard to compliance and flexibility, and to different ways of how learning at work takes place. Furthermore, reflection in situations where the processes are in early maturing phases seems to lead to consolidation of best practice, while reflection in situations where processes are highly standardized may lead to a modification of these standard processes. Therefore, in order to support the maturing of organizational know-how by providing reflection support, one should take into account the degree of standardisation of the processes in the target group.

Evaluation of social media collaboration using task-detection methods

ECTEL 2011, Palermo, Italy, 20-23 September 2011, Springer, 2011

Konferenz
Collaboration using social media is a good way of jointly constructing knowledge. This study aims at better understanding collaborative knowledge construction processes by applying innovative (micro-)task detection approaches. We take a closer look at the interactions of a user with a shared digital artifact by analyzing the captured interaction data. The goal is to identify domain-independent interaction patterns, which can serve as indicators for knowledge development (operationalized as accommodation). We designed an empirical study under laboratory conditions that used our method. The applied task detection approach identified accommodation with a rate of 77.63% without resorting to textual features. This result instantiates an improvement as compared to a previous study in which the text in focus was identified as the feature with best discriminative power. We discuss our hypothesis that our method is independent from the used knowledge domain.

Recommending Knowledgeable People in a Work-Integrated Learning System

1st Workshop on Recommender Systems for Technology Enhanced Learning (RecSysTEL 2010), 2010

Konferenz
According to studies into learning at work, interpersonal help seeking is the most important strategy of how people acquireknowledge at their workplaces. Finding knowledgeable persons, however, can often be difficult for several reasons. Expertfinding systems can support the process of identifying knowledgeable colleagues thus facilitating communication andcollaboration within an organization. In order to provide the expert finding functionality, an underlying user model is needed thatrepresents the characteristics of each individual user. In our article we discuss requirements for user models for the workintegratedlearning (WIL) situation. Then, we present the APOSDLE People Recommender Service which is based on anunderlying domain model, and on the APOSDLE User Model. We describe the APOSDLE People Recommender Service on thebasis of the Intuitive Domain Model of expert finding systems, and explain how this service can support interpersonal helpseeking at workplaces.

Providing Varying Degrees of Guidance for Work-Integrated Learning

Sustaining TEL: From Innovation to Learning and Practice, Proceedings of EC-TEL 2010, Wolpers, M., Kirschner, P. A., Scheffel, M., Lindstaedt, S. N., Dimitrova, V., Springer, 2010

Konferenz
We present a work-integrated learning (WIL) concept which aims atempowering employees to learn while performing their work tasks. Withinthree usage scenarios we introduce the APOSDLE environment whichembodies the WIL concept and helps knowledge workers move fluidly alongthe whole spectrum of WIL activities. By doing so, they are experiencingvarying degrees of learning guidance: from building awareness, over exposingknowledge structures and contextualizing cooperation, to triggering reflectionand systematic competence development. Four key APOSDLE components areresponsible for providing this variety of learning guidance. The challenge intheir design lies in offering learning guidance without being domain-specificand without relying on manually created learning content. Our three monthsummative workplace evaluation within three application organizationssuggests that learners prefer awarenss building functionalities and descriptivelearning guidance and reveals that they benefited from it.

Enterprise modelling focuses on the construction of a structureddescription, the so-called enterprise model, which represents aspectsrelevant to the activity of an enterprise. Although it has becomeclearer recently that enterprise modelling is a collaborative activity, involvinga large number of people, most of the enterprise modelling toolsstill only support very limited degrees of collaboration. Within thiscontribution we describe a tool for enterprise modelling, called MoKi(MOdelling wiKI), which supports agile collaboration between all differentactors involved in the enterprise modelling activities. MoKi is basedon a Semantic Wiki and enables actors with different expertise to developan enterprise model not only using structural (formal) descriptions butalso adopting more informal and semi-formal descriptions of knowledge.

UICO: An Ontology-Based User Interaction Context Model for Automatic Task Detection on the Computer Desktop

Proceedings of the Context Information and Ontology (CIAO2009) workshop as part of the ESWC 2009, Gomez-Perez, J. M., Haase, P., Tilly, M., Warren, P., ACM, 2009

Konferenz
‘Understanding context is vital’ [1] and ‘context is key’ [2]signal the key interest in the context detection field. Oneimportant challenge in this area is automatically detectingthe user’s task because once it is known it is possible tosupport her better. In this paper we propose an ontologybaseduser interaction context model (UICO) that enhancesthe performance of task detection on the user’s computerdesktop. Starting from low-level contextual attention metadatacaptured from the user’s desktop, we utilize rule-based,information extraction and machine learning approaches toautomatically populate this user interaction context model.Furthermore we automatically derive relations between themodel’s entities and automatically detect the user’s task.We present evaluation results of a large-scale user study wecarried out in a knowledge-intensive business environment,which support our approach.

Konferenz
Whatever purpose models are created for, they need to be evaluated inorder to ensure that they will serve their intended use. Unfortunately, model evaluationis a significant effort and no standard clear-cut evaluation methodology exists today.In this work we introduce our approach of distributing the evaluation effort over thewhole modeling process. This is achieved by providing (partly automated) feedbackon the models in different stages of development. We illustrate our approach based onthe specific goal of modeling tasks, topics and skills for the adaptive work-integratedlearning system APOSDLE.

Konferenz
Work-integrated learning (WIL) poses unique challenges for usermodel design: on the one hand users’ knowledge levels need to be determinedbased on their work activities – testing is not a viable option; on the other handusers do interact with a multitude of different work applications – there is nocentral learning system. This contribution introduces a user model and correspondingservices (based on SOA) geared to enable unobtrusive adaptabilitywithin WIL environments. Our hybrid user model services interpret usage datain the context of enterprise models (semantic approaches) and utilize heuristics(scruffy approaches) in order to determine knowledge levels, identify subjectmatter experts, etc. We give an overview of different types of user model services(logging, production, inference, control), provide a reference implementationwithin the APOSDLE project, and discuss early evaluation results.

Detecting Real User Tasks by Training on Laboratory Contextual Attention Metadata

Proceedings of Exploitation User Attention Metadata (EUAM '09) held at Informatik '09, 2009

Konferenz
Detecting the current task of a user is essential for providing her with contextualizedand personalized support, and using Contextual Attention Metadata (CAM)can help doing so. Some recent approaches propose to perform automatic user task detectionby means of task classifiers using such metadata. In this paper, we show thatgood results can be achieved by training such classifiers offline on CAM gathered inlaboratory settings. We also isolate a combination of metadata features that present asignificantly better discriminative power than classical ones.

On the feasibility of a tag-based approach for deciding which objects a picture shows: An empirical study

Semantic Multimedia. 4th International Conference on Semantic and Digital Media Technologies, SAMT 2009 Graz, Austria, December 2-4, 2009 Proceedings, Springer, 2009

Konferenz
Many online platforms allow users to describe resources withfreely chosen keywords, so called tags. The specific meaning of a tag aswell as its specific relation to the tagged resource are left open for interpretationto the user. Although human users mostly have a fair chance atinterpreting it, machines do not. An algorithmic approach for identifyingdescriptive tags however could prove useful for intelligent search for picturesand providing first-cut overviews over tagged picture repositories.In this paper we investigate the characteristics of the problem to decidewhich tags describe visible entities on a given picture. Based on a systematicuser study, we are able to discuss in detail the problems involvedfor both humans and machines when identifying descriptive tags. Furthermore,we investigate the general feasibility of developing a tag-basedalgorithm tackling this question. Finally, a concrete implementation andits evaluation are presented.

In order to support work-integrated learning scenarios task- andcompetency-aware knowledge services are needed. In this paper we introducethree key knowledge services of the APOSDLE system and illustrate how theyinteract. The context determination daemon observes user interactions andinfers the current work task of the user. The user profile service uses theidentified work tasks to determine the competences of the user. And finally, theassociative retrieval service utilizes both the current work task and the inferredcompetences to identify relevant (learning) content. All of these knowledgeservices improve through user feedback.

Deploying semantic web technologies for work integrated learning in industry. A comparison: SME vs. large sized company

Proceedings of the ISWC 2008, 7th International Semantic Web Conference, Karlsruhe, Germany, Oct 26-30, 2008 , Springer, 2008

Konferenz
Modern businesses operate in a rapidly changing environment.Continuous learning is an essential ingredient in order to stay competitivein such environments. The APOSDLE system utilizes semanticweb technologies to create a generic system for supporting knowledgeworkers in different domains to learnwork. Since APOSDLE relies onthree interconnected semantic models to achieve this goal, the questionon how to efficiently create high-quality semantic models has become oneof the major research challenges. On the basis of two concrete examplesnamelydeployment of such a learning system at EADS, a large corporation,and deployment at ISN, a network of SMEs-we report in detail theissues a company has to face, when it wants to deploy a modern learningenvironment relying on semantic web technology.

Recommending tags for pictures based on text, visual content and user context

Third International Conference on Internet and Web Applications and Services (ICIW), IEEE, 2008

Konferenz
Imagine you are member of an online social systemand want to upload a picture into the community pool. In currentsocial software systems, you can probably tag your photo, shareit or send it to a photo printing service and multiple other stuff.The system creates around you a space full of pictures, otherinteresting content (descriptions, comments) and full of users aswell. The one thing current systems do not do, is understandwhat your pictures are about.We present here a collection of functionalities that make a stepin that direction when put together to be consumed by a tagrecommendation system for pictures. We use the data richnessinherent in social online environments for recommending tags byanalysing different aspects of the same data (text, visual contentand user context). We also give an assessment of the quality ofthus recommended tags.

Collaborative Knowledge Engineering via Semantic MediaWiki

Proceedings of the I-Semantics 2008, Graz, Austria, Sep. 3-5 2008, 2008

Konferenz
Formal modelling is a challenging and expensive task, especially for people not familiarwith design techniques and formal languages. In this paper we present the modelling experiencewithin the APOSDLE EU-project, and we describe the methodology we have developedto support an integrated modelling process of the ontologies and workflows inside APOSDLE.Our approach is based on two main pillars: (i) the usage of Semantic MediaWiki (SMW) forthe collaborative development of informal models to be created, and (ii) a tight, and as much aspossible automatic, integration of the SMW with tools for formal modelling, in order to reuse theinformal models for formal models creation.

Analysis of Machine Learning Techniques for Context Extraction

Proceedings of 2008 International Conference on Digital Information Management (ICDIM08), IEEE Computer Society Press, 2008

Konferenz
’Context is key’ conveys the importance of capturing thedigital environment of a knowledge worker. Knowing theuser’s context offers various possibilities for support, likefor example enhancing information delivery or providingwork guidance. Hence, user interactions have to be aggregatedand mapped to predefined task categories. Withoutmachine learning tools, such an assignment has to be donemanually. The identification of suitable machine learningalgorithms is necessary in order to ensure accurate andtimely classification of the user’s context without inducingadditional workload.This paper provides a methodology for recording user interactionsand an analysis of supervised classification models,feature types and feature selection for automatically detectingthe current task and context of a user. Our analysisis based on a real world data set and shows the applicabilityof machine learning techniques.

Improving the productivity of knowledge workers is anopen research challenge. Our approach is based onproviding a large variety of knowledge services which takethe current work task and information need (work context)of the knowledge worker into account. In the following wepresent the DYONIPOS application which strives toautomatically identify a user’s work task and thencontextualizes different types of knowledge servicesaccordingly. These knowledge services then provideinformation (documents, people, locations) both from theuser’s personal as well as from the organizationalenvironment. The utility and functionality is illustratedalong a real world application scenario at the Ministry ofFinance in Austria.

A Socio-Technical Approach towards Supporting Intra-Organizational Collaboration

Proceedings of the European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning (ECTEL) 2008, Maastricht, The Netherlands, September 16-19, Springer, 2008

Konferenz
Knowledge work in companies is increasingly carried out by teams of knowledge workers. They interact within and between teams with the common goal to acquire, apply, create and share knowledge. In this paper we propose a socio-technical model to support intra-organizational collaboration which specifically takes into account the social and collaborative nature of knowledge work. Our aim is to support in particular the efficiency of collaborative knowledge work processes through an automated recommendation of collaboration partners and collaboration media. We report on the theoretical as well as practical aspects of such a socio-technical model.

Collaborative enterprise integrated modelling

Poster Session at the 16th International Conference on Knowledge Engineering and Knowledge Management Knowledge Patterns (EKAW 2008), 29th September-3rd October 2008 - Acitrezza, Catania, Italy, 2008

Konferenz
Enterprise modelling focuses on the construction of structured descriptions,the enterprise models, of sets of aspects relevant to the activity ofan enterprise. Nowadays, knowledge engineering provides powerful methodologiesand tools to support enterprise modeling in the production of formal models.These methods however present two main limitation: First, they are based ona waterfall process of transformation of informal knowledge into formal statements;Second, they tend to separate the modelling of the different aspects withoutproviding enough support to their final integration. In this paper we propose amore flexible framework that supports an agile collaboration between the actorsinvolved in the modelling activities, without sticking to a pre-defined protocolof interaction. In addition we propose an integrated meta-model that specifiesthe integration of single components of an articulated enterprise model as wellas their relations, and we report our experience of using the framework and themeta-model in the production of five enterprise models within the APOSDLEEU-project.

Use and Influence of Creative Ideas and Requirements for a Work-Integrated Learning System

proceedings of the RE08, 16th International Requirements Engineering Conference, Barcelona, Catalunya, Spain, September 8-12, IEEE Computer Society Press, 2008

Konferenz
In this paper, we describe a creativity workshop thatwas used in a large research project, called APOSDLE,to generate creative ideas and requirements for a workintegratedlearning system. We present an analysis ofempirical data collected during and after the workshop.On the basis of this analysis, we conclude that the workshopwas an efficient way of generating ideas for futuresystem development. These ideas, on average, were usedat least as much as requirements from other sources inwriting use cases, and 18 months after the workshop wereseen to have a similar degree of influence on the projectto other requirements. We make some observations aboutthe use of more and less creative ideas, and about thetechniques used to generate them. We end with suggestionsfor further work.

A Competence-based Approach for Formalizing Learning Goals in Work-integrated Learning

Proceedings of the ED-Media 2008, Vienna, Austria, June 30-July 4, 2008,, Chesapeake, VA: AACE, 2008

Konferenz
The paper suggests a way to support work-integrated learning for knowledge workwhich poses a great challenge for current research and practice. We first present a WorkplaceLearning Context Model which has been derived by analyzing knowledge work and the knowledgesources used by knowledge workers. The model specifies an integrative view on knowledgeworkers’ work environment by connecting learning, work and knowledge spaces. We then focuson the part of the context which specifies learning goals and their interrelations to task and domainmodels. Our purpose is to support learning needs analysis which is based on a comparison of tasksperformed in the past to those tasks to be tackled in the future. A first implementation in theAPOSDLE project is presented including the models generated for five real world applications andthe software prototype. We close with an outlook on future work.

Automatic image annotation is an important and challengingtask when managing large image collections. This paper describestechniques for automatic image annotation by taking advantage of collaborativelyannotated image databases, so called visual folksonomies.Our approach applies two techniques based on image analysis: Classificationannotates images with a controlled vocabulary while tag propagationuses user generated, folksonomic annotations and is thereforecapable of dealing with an unlimited vocabulary. Experiments with apool of Flickr images demonstrate the high accuracy and efficiency ofthe proposed methods in the task of automatic image annotation.

Scruffy Technologies to Enable (Work-integrated) Learning

EC-TEL, 2007

Konferenz
The goal of the APOSDLE (Advanced Process-Oriented SelfDirectedLearning environment) project is to support work-integrated learningof knowledge workers. We argue that work-integrated learning requires extremeflexibility on a variety of aspects from supportive learning systems. Thisflexibility can not be achieved by typical (neat) eLearning systems. In this contributionwe present how a battery of scruffy technologies (e.g. combining semantics,associative networks and collective intelligence approaches) can beutilized to achieve this flexibility for user profile maintenance and contextbasedretrieval.

Konferenz
While it is agreed that semantic enrichment of resources would lead tobetter search results, at present the low coverage of resources on the web with semanticinformation presents a major hurdle in realizing the vision of search on the SemanticWeb. To address this problem we investigate how to improve retrieval performancein a setting where resources are sparsely annotated with semantic information. Wesuggest employing techniques from associative information retrieval to find relevantmaterial, which was not originally annotated with the concepts used in a query. Wepresent an associative retrieval system for the Semantic Desktop and show how the useof associative retrieval increased retrieval performance.

APOSDLE: learn@work with semantic web technology

Proceedings of I-MEDIA 2007 and I-SEMANTICS 2007, Graz, Austria, September 5-7, 2007, 2007

Konferenz
The EU project APOSDLE focuses on work-integrated learning. Among the severalchallenges of the project, a crucial role is played by the system’s ability to start from the context ofthe immediate work of a user, establish her missing competencies and learning needs and suggeston-the-fly and appropriate learning stimuli. These learning stimuli are created from a variety ofresources (documents, videos, expert profiles, and so on) already stored in the workplace andmay be in the form of learning material or suggestions to contact experts and / or colleagues.To address this challenge requires the capability of building a system which is able find, choose,share, and combine a variety of knowledge, evolving content and resources in an automatic andeffective manner. The implementation of this capability requires technology which goes beyondtraditional query-answering and keyword based search engines, and Semantic Web technologywas chosen by the consortium as the most appropriate technology to make information search anddata integration more efficient. The aim of this paper is to give an overview of the broad spectrumof Semantic Web technologies that are needed for a complex application like APOSDLE, and thechallenges for the Semantic Web community that have appeared along the way.

Knowledge-intensive work plays an increasinglyimportant role in organisations of all types. Thiswork is characterized by a defined input and adefined output but not the way how to transformthe input to an output. Within this context, theresearch project DYONIPOS aims at encouragingthe two crucial roles in a knowledge-intensiveorganization - the process executer and the processengineer. Ad-hoc support will be providedfor the knowledge worker by synergizing the developmentof context sensitive, intelligent, andagile semantic technologies with contextual retrieval.DYONIPOS provides process executerswith guidance through business processes andjust-in-time resource support based on the currentuser context, that are the focus of this paper.

In a knowledge-intensive business environment, knowledgeworkers perform their tasks in highly creative ways. This essential freedomrequired by knowledge workers often conflicts with their organization’sneed for standardization, control, and transparency. Within thiscontext, the research project DYONIPOS aims to mitigate this contradictionby supporting the process engineer with insights into the processexecuter’s working behavior. These insights constitute the basis for balancedprocess modeling. DYONIPOS provides a process engineer supportenvironment with advanced process modeling services, such as processvisualization, standard process validation, and ad-hoc process analysisand optimization services.

A Context-Model for Supporting Work-Integrated Learning

European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning, Innovative Approaches for Learning and Knowledge Sharing , Springer, Berlin, 2006

Konferenz
This contribution introduces the so-called Workplace Learning Contextas essential conceptualisation supporting self-directed learning experiencesdirectly at the workplace. The Workplace Learning Context is to be analysedand exploited for retrieving ‘learning’ material that best-possibly matches witha knowledge worker’s current learning needs. In doing so, several different‘flavours’ of work-integrated learning can be realised including task learning,competency-gap based support and domain-related support. The WorkplaceLearning Context Model, which is also outlined in this contribution, forms thetechnical representation of the Workplace Learning Context.

Support for the process of ontology engineering is needed in order to reduce theeffort still necessary to build an ontology. Some can be given by facilitated evaluationof the ontology under development. To that purpose we present an automated methodthat supports data driven ontology evaluation by checking to what extent the conceptsand axioms of the ontology under evaluation are covered by a given set of individuals(data).We applied the here presented ontology coverage check (OCC) to various ontologiesand will report on the results. The results highlight not only the potential of OCCbut also some characteristics of ontologies currently available to the public.

We preset a network model for context-based retrievalallowing for integrating domain knowledgeinto document retrieval. Based on thepremise that the results provided by a networkmodel employing spreading activation are equivalentto the results of a vector space model, wecreate a network representation of a documentcollection for retrieval. We extended this well exploredapproach by blending it with techniquesfrom knowledge representation. This leaves uswith a network model for finding similarities in adocument collection by content-based as well asknowledge-based similarities.

Semantic Systems From Vision to Applications - Proceedings of the SEMANTICS 2006, Vienna, Austria, November 28-30, 2006, Österreichische Computer Gesellschaft, Wien, 2006

Konferenz
In this contribution we present a tool for annotating documents, which are used for workintegratedlearning, with concepts from an ontology. To allow for annotating directly whilecreating or editing an ontology, the tool was realized as a plug-in for the ontology editor Protégé.Annotating documents with semantic metadata is a laborious task, most of the time knowledgerepresentations are created independently from the resources that should be annotated andadditionally in most work environments a high number of documents exist. To increase theefficiency of the person annotating, in our tool the process of assigning concepts to text-documentsis supported by automatic text-classification.

Improving Service Innovation through Structured Process-oriented Knowledge Infrastructure Design

Proceedings of the I-KNOW`05, 5th International Conference on Knowledge Management, Springer, Graz, Austria, 2005

Konferenz
Formalised service innovation is a central tenet of enterprise systems lifecyclephases. Event driven process models extended with knowledge objects are found to be notuseful in early lifecycle phases. When an upgrade is required, a map of the knowledgeinfrastructure is needed to better design further service innovation because functional maps nolonger adequately describe the context adequately. By looking at formal changes to businessprocesses as service innovations, and recognising the knowledge infrastructure inherent inservices generally, changes driven through technology such as ES can be better understoodwith the application of frameworks such as B-KIDE.

Beyond flexible Information Systems: Why Business Agility Matters

Proceedings of the CAiSE 05 Workshop BPMDS 05 on Business Process Modeling, Development, and Support: Business Processes and Support Systems: Design for Flexibility, Castro, J., Teniente, E., Porto, Portugal, 2005

Konferenz
Today, organizations need to act and perform in increasinglydynamic environments. Current research on flexibility of information systemsaims to provide answers to this fact. Yet, we show that the concept of flexibilityalone does not suffice to address this challenge. Therefore, this paper introducesthe notion of business agility that extends the concept of flexibility anddescribes further necessary areas of research. We identify a perception gapwhich argues that current concepts of flexibility do not actively search forchallenges or opportunities of change in the environment. Instead, flexibility iscommonly perceived to be a rather passive characteristic. Based on thisobservation, our contribution introduces an exemplary instrument that addressesthe identified perception gap and aids organizations in achieving higher degreesof business agility and thus, increases the capability of organizations to act andperform under uncertain conditions. The overall contribution of this paper is anextended perspective on the concept of flexibility, the identification of furthernecessary areas of research and the introduction of an instrument that addressesaspects of the identified issues.

This contribution introduces a novel approach for the identificationof knowledge problems in process-oriented organizations. On anoperative level, knowledge problems occur when the generation, storage,transfer or application of knowledge is not in accordance with an organization’sbusiness goals. The concept of knowledge problem patternsrepresents a sound instrument to point organizations to such shortcomingsand thereby opens up solution spaces for overcoming them. Thiscontribution briefly introduces a set of knowledge problem patterns andan accompanying process of applying them in real world environments- both supported by empirical data generated in three conducted casestudies. The concepts of this work provide new stimuli and insights forcurrent research in the domain of business process oriented knowledgemodelling and -audits.

Supporting Competency Development in Informal Workplace Learning

Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence, Althoff, K.-D., Dengel, A., Bergmann, R., Nick, M., Roth-Berghofer, T., Springer, Heidelberg, 2005

Konferenz
This paper seeks to suggest ways to support informal, self-directed, work-integrated learning within organizations. We focus on a special type of learning in organizations, namely on competency development, that is a purposeful development of employee capabilities to perform well in a large array of situations. As competency development is inherently a self-directed development activity, we seek to support these activities primarily in an informal learning context. AD-HOC environments which allow employees context specific access to documents in a knowledge repository have been suggested to support learning in the workplace. In this paper, we suggest to use the competence performance framework as a means to enhance the capabilities of AD HOC environments to support competency development. The framework formalizes the tasks employees are working in and the competencies needed to perform the tasks. Relating tasks and competencies results in a competence performance structure, which structures both tasks and competencies in terms of learning prerequisites. We conclude with two scenarios that make use of methods established in informal learning research. The scenarios show how competence performance structures enhance feedback mechanisms in a coaching process between supervisor and employee and provide assistance for self directed learning from a knowledge repository.

This contribution introduces a setof knowledge problem patterns and an accompanying process of applyingthem in organizations - both supported by empirical data generated inthree conducted case studies. In doing that, this contribution providesnew stimuli and insights for current research in the domain of businessprocess oriented knowledge modeling and -audits.

AD-HOC - Work-integrated Technology-supported Teaching and Learning

Proceedings of the 5th International Conference on Organizational Knowledge, Learning, and Capabilities, Innsbruck, 2004

Konferenz
Carrying out today’s knowledge work without information and communicationtechnology (ICT) is unimaginable. ICT makes it possible to process and exchangeinformation quickly and efficiently. However, accomplishing tasks with ICT isoften tedious: Colleagues have to be asked, how best to proceed. Necessaryresources have to be searched for in the intranet and internet. And one has toget familiar with applying the various systems and tools. This way, solving asimple task can become a time consuming process for inexperienced employeesand also for those who are asked for their expertise.Therefore, at the Know-Center Graz, Austria , the AD-HOC methodology hasbeen developed to support knowledge workers in task-oriented learning andteaching situations. This methodology is used to analyse the work processes, toidentify the needed resources, tools, and systems, and finally to design an ADHOCEnvironment. In this environment, systems and tools are arranged forspecific work processes. Users are then guided at their work tasks and areprovided with the necessary resources instantly.This article presents the AD-HOC methodology. It analyses the obstacles thathamper efficient knowledge work and how AD-HOC overcomes them. Finally, thesupport of users at their specific work tasks by deployed AD-HOC Environmentsis shown in two field studies.

Integration von Prozess- und Wissensmanagement-orientierten Designstrategien zur Erstellung benutzerfreundlicher Unternehmensportale

Wissensmanagement 2003 - 2. Konferenz Professionelles Wissensmanagement, Luzern/Schweiz, 2.-4.4.2003, Reimer, U., Abecker, A., Staab, S., Stumme, G., Köllen Druck Verlag GmbH, Luzern, Schweiz, 2003

Konferenz
Personalisierbare Portale als Fenster zu Unternehmensgedachtnissen finden ¨in der Praxis immer haufiger Anwendung. Bei dem Design dieser Portale stellt sich die ¨Frage nach der Strukturierung der Informationen: auf der einen Seite soll der tagliche ¨Arbeitsprozess unterstutzt werden, auf der anderen Seite sollen aber auch Informa- ¨tionen zuganglich gemacht werden, die den Prozess in einen gr ¨ oßeren Kontext set- ¨zen. Unsere Erfahrungen bei der Portalentwicklungen haben gezeigt, dass zwei unterschiedlicheStrategien Anwendung finden: Prozessfokus und Wissensfokus. Die Wahlder individuellen Strategie hangt einerseits von den Zielen ab, die das Portal erf ¨ ullen ¨soll. Andererseits hangen sie aber auch von der Ausgangssituation im anwendenden ¨Unternehmen ab. Dieser Beitrag stellt die beiden Designstrategien vor und identifiziertRahmenbedingungen, die bei der Wahl der Stategie helfen konnen.

Konferenz
Wir betrachten kooperative Lern- und Lehrsituationen im Kontext dertäglichen Arbeitsprozesse aus der Perspektive des Wissensmanagements. In einerCase Study bei DaimlerChrysler wurden Szenarien entwickelt, in denen Wissen inGruppen erarbeitet und weitergegeben wird, um konkrete Arbeitsaufgaben unterZeitdruck erfüllen zu können. Zur Zeit entwickeln wir im Kontext eines WissensmanagementsystemsMethoden und technische Hilfsmittel zur Unterstützung dieseraufgaben-orientierten kooperativen Lern- und Lehrprozesse.

KMap: Providing Orientation for Practitioners when Introducing Knowledge Management

Proceedings of the 4th International Conference on Practical Aspects of Knowledge Management (PAKM 2002), Springer, Vienna Austria, 2002

Konferenz
One of the first question each knowledge management project facesis: Which concrete activities are referred to under the name of knowledgemanagement and how do they relate to each other? To help answer this questionand to provide guidance when introducing knowledge management we havedeveloped KMap. KMap is an environment which supports a practitioner in theinteractive exploration of a map of knowledge management activities. Theinteraction helps trigger interesting questions crucial to the exploration of thesolution space and makes hidden argumentation lines visible. KMap is not anew theory of knowledge management but a pragmatic “object to think with”and is currently in use in two case studies.

Knowledge Management within Digital Libraries by means of Personalization

Journal of Universal Computer Science (J.UCS), Proceedings of I-KNOW02, 2nd International Conference on Knowledge Management, July 11-12, 2002, Graz, Austria, 2002

Konferenz
This paper presents research results obtained from the project Personal AdaptableDigital Library Environment (PADDLE). The main focus of the DFG funded research projectis to apply concepts of knowledge management to digital libraries by introducingpersonalization techniques. The idea is to enable the specific needs, experiences, skills andtasks of a knowledge worker using a digital library could be taken into account. Metadata is thekey issue for doing this. Therefore the PADDLE system architecture describes a metadatamanager, which allows the association of metadata with the knowledge objects stored indistributed information resources. Based on this architecture several personalization conceptslike workspaces and profiles are introduced. Finally, a geographic information portal isdescribed that realizes a new way of seeking and accessing geodata related knowledge objectswithin a digital library.

ECTEL meets ECSCW: Computer-Support for Integrated Working and Learning

ECSCW 2013 Adjunct Proceedings

Konferenz
With this workshop, we intend to bring together the European communities of technology-enhanced learning, which typically meets at the ECTEL, and of computersupported cooperative work, which typically meets at the ECSCW. While the ECTEL community has traditionally focused on technology support for learning, be it in formal learning environments like schools, universities, etc. or in informal learning environments like workplaces, the ECSCW community has traditionally investigated how computers can and do mediate and influence collaborative work, in settings as diverse as the typical “gainful employment” situations, project work within university courses, volunteer settings in NGOs etc. Despite overlapping areas of concerns, the two communities are also exploiting different theories and methodological approaches. Within this workshop, we discuss issues that are relevant for both communities, and have the potential to contribute to a more lively communication between both communities.
