All further results of the OMiLAB Node are via the organizer.
The following, selected activities are organized by the OMiLAB.
Business Modeling and Distributed Computing (master program with OMiLAB-focused educational activities)
Our English-language master program aims to consolidate the Digital Innovator
educational profile discussed in the literature by including dedicated modules on Design Thinking, Business Process Modeling, Process Automation, Semantic Technology and IoT. These are complemented by other topics taught by our colleagues, (e.g. Data Science, Machine Learning, Distributed Systems) towards ensuring that students gain both a data-focused and a conceptual abstraction-focused perspective, extended with academic writing skills that enabled the publication of papers based on the most original student projects.
NEMO Summer School contributions (educational)
Since its initiation in 2014, the NEMO Summer School series has attracted a diverse international participation focusing on the value and application areas of Conceptual Modeling, covering topics such as Digital Twins, Business Process Management, Enterprise Architecture, Model-driven Engineering, Knowledge Graphs, Requirements Engineering etc. Prof. Buchmann has been involved since the first edition, with Dr. Ghiran joining in 2017 for offering lectures and exercises typically focusing on the interplay between knowledge graphs and diagrammatic models.
European Researcher's Night (Cluj Napoca, September 30, 2022)
This Europe-wide event aimed to popularize science for the general public and included a presentation space for us to promote the node's work on knowledge driven automation and the Digital Innovator educational profile fostered by our master program.
ISD 2022 - the 30th International Conference on Information Systems Development (Cluj Napoca, August 31-September 2, 2022)
The AIS-affilitated 30th International Conference on Information Systems Development was organized by the host organization of the OMiLAB@UBB-FSEGA and provided a formal occasion for the inauguration of the node. The conference included a keynote and a tutorial in collaboration with the University of Vienna node, as well as several OMiLAB-powered research papers presented during the conference.
ECIS 2022 - the 30th European Conference on Information Systems (Timișoara, June 18-24, 2022)
The first AIS conference to be held in Romania included, besides the now traditional Enterprise Modeling track at ECIS (co-chaired by Prof. Buchmann), a Conceptual Modeling tutorial in collaboration with the University of Vienna node, focusing on the research support provided by the BEE-UP tool.
ICEIS 2022 - the 24th International Conference on Enterprise Information Systems (Virtual, June 18-24, 2022)
Prof. Buchmann contributed to the preparation of a Conceptual Modeling tutorial included in the ICEIS program and presented by the University of Vienna node.
PoEM 2021 - the 14th IFIP Conference on the Practice of Enterprise Modeling (Riga/Virtual, November 24-26, 2021)
Prof. Buchmann contributed to the Conceptual Modeling tutorial focusing on the BEE-UP tool, in collaboration with the University of Vienna node. The conference also traditionally includes research papers on the OMiLAB topics of interest and from various OMiLAB network members.
BIR 2020/2021 - the 19th and 20th International Conference on Perspectives in Business Informatics Research (Vienna/Virtual, September 22-24, 2021)
Prof. Buchmann collaborated with the nodes at University of Vienna and University of Camerino in organizing the joint 2020-2021 BIR conference, which included the ILOG workshop managed by the node at University of Rostock, a BEE-UP tutorial presented by Prof. Buchmann and research papers on OMiLAB's topics of interest.
PoEM 2018 - the 11th IFIP Conference on the Practice of Enterprise Modeling (Vienna, October 31-November 2, 2018)
Prof. Buchmann collaborated with the node at University of Vienna in organizing PoEM 2018 which included research papers on OMiLAB's topics of interest as well as the OMiLAB-focused PrOse workshop.
