Cooperation project with MENTASYS GmbH (since July, 2002):
In the context of the cooperation project with MENTASYS GmbH and Institute for Decision Theory and Management Sciene, University of Karlsruhe, Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Gaul we investigate recommender systems in e-commerce scenarios. Recent topics are the usage of product properties for computing recommendations as well as temporal phenomena as changing customer preferences and assortments under drift.

Learning Attribute-Aware Recommender Systems (June 2004 - October 2006; funded by Eliteförderprogramm für Postdoktorandinnen und Postdoktoranden der Landesstiftung Baden-Württemberg):
This research project investigates the learning of predictive models in the context of recommender systems. Data Mining / Machine Learning techniques are used to analyze the complex and extensive amount of data acquired for the learning process.

Erstausstattung Juniorprofessur (October 2003 - September 2006; funded by BMBF).
In this project methods for content mining, especially, text and multimedia mining, and learning of user preferences are researched.

Cooperation in Third-party Projects
SemIPort (since July 2003; Institute for Applied Informatics and Formal Description Methods (AIFB), University of Karlsruhe, Prof. Dr. Rudi Studer):
In SemIPort we investigate and develop semantic technologies for building and managing internet portals. The affiliated project Fachinformationssystem Informatik (FIS-I) makes use of the SemIPort technologies for running the computer sciene bibiography portal io-port.

Karlsruhe internet based management education (KAIMAN) / Virtual University Oberrhein (VIROR) (February 1999 - June 2003; Institute of Decision Theory and Management Science, University of Karlsruhe, Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Gaul):
The project aimed at the developement and evaluation of web based e-learning modules with content from the fields of data mining, multivariate statistics, and operations research. Furthermore, we teached several tele-courses (on web mining, e-commerce, e-business) together with Lehrstuhl für Wirtschaftsinformatik III, University of Mannheim, Prof. Dr. Dr. Martin Schader.
