CSEDU 2013, the International Conference on Computer Supported Education was taking place in Aachen, Germany this year. The conference was addressing different e-learning themes such as Information Technologies Supporting Learning, Learning/Teaching Methodologies and Assessment, Ubiquitous Learning, Social Context and Learning Environments as well as Cloud Education Environments.
On behalf of AKSW, Ali Khalili and Darya Tarasowa presented two papers namely ?CrowdLearn: Crowd-sourcing the Creation of Highly-structured E-Learning Content? and ?Balanced Scoring Method for Multiple-mark Questions? at the conference (with acceptance rate 13% for full papers). The corresponding slides are available on SlideWiki (CrowdLearn, Balanced Scoring). The CrowdLearn paper discussing the underlying philosophy behind SlideWiki received many attention from the audience and was also nominated for the best-paper award in the conference. There were many people who were interested in using SlideWiki for publishing their teaching material and to share their educational content with other people in an OpenCourseWare environment.
Most of the keynotes were addressing MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) and the new paradigms emerging on the Web for social learning. SlideWiki as an example of collaboration platform was also mentioned by professor Michael E. Auer in his keynote about the new engineering challenges in e-learning.
International Symposium on Services Science 2013
Bereits zum fünften Mal in Folge bietet das ?International Symposium on Services Science? (ISSS) eine einzigartige Plattform für einen Austausch über den Fortschritt der Forschung im Bereich der Service Science und die Anwendung der Ergebnisse in der Praxis. Wissenschaftler und Anwender sind gleichermaßen aufgerufen, sich an der Veranstaltung zu beteiligen und gemeinsam den Blick auf die umfangreichen Aspekte der Dienstleistungsforschung zu schärfen. Die ISSS wird eintägig als Teil des wissenschaftlichen Programms der ?Leipziger Tage der Angewandten Informatik? am 24. September 2013 in Leipzig stattfinden.
In diesem Jahr ist die ISSS durch die Beobachtung getrieben, dass sich in verschiedensten Dienstleistungssystemen und Wertschöpfungsketten so genannte Systemdienstleister etablieren. Diese Systemdienstleister lassen sich über ihre koordinierende Funktion innerhalb des Dienstleistungssystems charakterisieren, mit der sie einen wesentlichen Anteil am entstehenden Leistungsangebot haben. Systemdienstleister besitzen besondere Marktkenntnisse, haben Zugang zu strategischen Ressourcen oder Kompetenzen, sind aktiv in Forschung und Entwicklung und generell offen für neue Technologien und Trends. In ihrer vitalen Funktion im Dienstleistungssystem bzw. der Wertschöpfungskette sind sie ebenfalls ein relevanter Ausgangspunkt für Dienstleistungsinnovationen.
Der Call for Papers ist veröffentlicht, um Beiträge wird gebeten. Alle Informationen zur Veranstaltung unter http://isss.uni-leipzig.de
On the second day of Sören?s short trip to Korea, we participated in the Open Data Conference of the Information Society Agency (NIA). NIA seems to be implementing a comprehensive Open Data strategy (also involving LinkedData). Looks like South Korea is quite advanced in this regard already. In addition to my talk about Linked Open Government Data, there was also a talk by Haklae Kim about the Korean Open Knowledge foundation chapter. There were also some industry representatives (Samsung, LG) in the audience and interested in applying Linked Data in enterprise environments.

Welcome to the Website of the Institute for Applied Informatics (InfAI) e.V.
Founded in 2006, the InfAI – Institute for Applied Informatics e.V. – pursues the promotion of science and research in the areas of computer science and business computing for the public good. The InfAI is a recognized adjunct institute of the University of Leipzig.
We look forward to meet you!
JPEG 9 with lossless JPEG compression immediately available
The Independent JPEG Group (IJG) at the Leipzig Institute for Applied Informatics has released the new version of the software library „libjpeg“. This software library is the basis for the processing of images in the ubiquitous JPEG format and is used worldwide in a countless number of applications of software vendors and in the photographic industry.
It is available under a fee-free license with open source code. After 15 years of continuous development, the upgrade to the new version 9 enables for the first time an effective lossless image compression mode and thus offers end users and industrial adopters a high added value. The Code is ready for download at the IJG Development Site.
The Big Clean
The Big Clean is a free, 1-day conference that addresses the challenges associated with reuse of public sector data. The event rises to the occasion of teaching the members of public how to recycle public data and reuse it in the pursuit of their own goals, ranging from the use of data to power applications, drive societal changes and provide grounds for a data-driven journalism. The Big Clean is focused on three principal topics:
- Screen-scraping: the skill of distilling data out of web pages and other poorly structured sources
- Data refining: the techniques of transforming raw data into usable data
- Data-driven journalism: the craft of telling stories with data
- Date and time: Saturday 3rd November, 2012, from 9 AM to 5 PM (GMT+1)
- Location: National Technical Library, Prague, Czech Republic (map)

INFORMATICS 2010 – The 40th Annual Conference of the Society for Computer Science in Leipzig
The 40th Annual Conference of the Society for Computer Science (GI) takes place from 27th September until 2nd October 2010 in Leipzig. Workshops, panels and other events will be held from Tuesday, 28th September 2010, until Thursday, 30th September 2010. Tutorials as well as the graduate programme will complement this conference on Monday and Friday.
Experts from science and industry will give a thorough overview on the most important new trends around the conference's topic of Service Science – New Perspectives for Computer Science. The focus will be on the „E-Humanities“ as a link between applied informatics and the humanities. The highlight on Wednesday, 29th September 2010, will be the Computer Science Day with invited talks on the conference's topic. Likewise, the 100th birthday of Konrad Zuse, the co-inventor of the first modern computer, will be honoured through talks and an exhibition.
Workshop proposals should be handed in by 10th January 2010.
Further information can be found at the Society's website for the annual conference.
