University of Vienna, Austria


Knowledge Engineering Research Group

To provide transparent, ubiquitous knowledge that can be semantically processed by IT systems is our main research goal. We develop concepts for modelling languages and methods as well as step models and realize concrete models. Within this core area of "Knowledge-based Process Management", the work accomplished by the group provides research results in the areas of Meta-Modelling, Meta-Data and Ontologies, Hybrid Method Engineering and Business Intelligence.
