Work Environment

The Web-based Systems Group explores technical and economic questions concerning the development of global, decentralized information environments. Our current research focuses are:

  • The evolution of the World Wide Web from a medium for the publication of textual documents into a medium for sharing structured data, as well as the role of Linked Data technologies within this transition.
  • The shift from classic data integration architectures to Enterprise Data Spaces which provide for the flexible, pay-as-you-go integration of large numbers of internal and external data sources.

The group has a strong focus on making research results accessible as open data on the Web as well as in the form of open source software. Projects that have been initialized by the group include DBpedia, Web Data Commons, the W3C Linking Open Data effort, the LDIF – Linked Data Integration Framework, and the Silk – Link Discovery Framework.

The Web-based Systems Group is part of the Focus Area on Data- and Web-Science that is currently being established at the School of Business Informatics and Mathematics of the University of Mannheim. The focus area will consist of four professors which work closely together and jointly supervise a team of approximately 20 doctoral and postdoctoral researchers. You will thus be given the opportunity to be part of a large research team that covers all aspects of Data- and Web-Science.
