My diploma thesis was about specification
of an interoperability concept to interconnect workflow management
systems in a heterogeneous compound.
It arose in cooperation with the Siemens Telecooperation Center (STZ) and the computer science department at the Universität des Saarlandes, Professor Gerhard Weikum.
In that work I connected the WfMS WorkParty from
Siemens Nixdorf International (SNI) and IBM FlowMark.
A prototype was shown at the CeBit'96 which connected WorkParty and the groupware system LinkWorks
in 2002 I took part in a project for realising a knowledge management system in the field of nuclear safety .
and took part in the EU-project DECOR
From May 2003 - April 2006, I was project leader of the BMB+F-project EPOS (Evolving Personal to Organizational Knowledge Spaces)
