Short CV

Andreas Abecker studied computer science and economics at the University of Kaiserslautern (Germany) and received the Diploma (master's degree) in 1994. As a freelancer, he did a study on  data mining techniques for credit risk evaluation at Swiss Bank Corporation, Basel. Since February 1995, he is with the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI GmbH) in  Kaiserslautern. In the DFKI Intelligent Engineering Systems department, he worked on knowledge representation (description logics, constraints) and knowledge evolution (theory revision, data mining) issues in the areas of technical configuration, production planning, and knowledge-based scheduling. Since 1996, he is a member of the DFKI Knowledge Management Group which is a part of the Information Management and Document Analysis Lab. As a researcher in the KnowMore project (Knowledge Management for Learning Organizations) and as project leader of the DFKI part of the European (ESPRIT) KNOWNET project (Knowledge Management with Intranet technologies), he investigates organizational, methodological, and technological issues for building Organizational Memories. Special emphasis is laid upon the integration of collaboration and coordination technologies (groupware, workflow), document management, and formal knowledge processing (ontologies and metadata for conceptual information retrieval). Andreas Abecker wrote and co-authored over 40 refereed publications in Expert Systems and Knowledge Management, he initiated a workshop series on AI and Organizational Memories (KI-97, ECAI-98, IJCAI-99), and gives lectures on knowledge-based systems at the Berufsakademie Mosbach and the Umwelt-Campus Birkenfeld.
