Welcome @ WISE
The Web & Information Systems Engineering (WISE) Laboratory is a research unit of the department of Computer Science of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. WISE is headed by Professor Olga De Troyer and Professor Beat Signer.
The activities of WISE concentrate on innovative information systems, such as next generation web applications, mobile and context-aware applications, interactive paper and cross-media solutions as well as the multimodal and multi-touch interaction with these mixed-media information spaces. We develop new engineering methodologies, tools and software frameworks for the rapid prototyping and efficient realization of innovative information environments.
There is a strong emphasis on conceptual modeling and design, semantics, reasoning on designs, adaptation and personalization, localization and globalization, accessibility, and usability in general. Important technologies used in this context are Semantic Web technologies, Web 2.0 technologies, ontologies, graphical and visual design languages, and design patterns.
In the context of our research project on Personal Information Management, we would like to kindly ask you to participate in a survey.
Abdalghani (Abed) Mushtaha, one of the PhD students of WISE, will publically defense his PhD work on Sept 7, 2012. The defense will take place in room D0.08 of the university (Building D) and starts at 16:00. The title of his work is "Towards Designing Localized Websites ".
Our former Bachelor student Bram Moerman together with some members of the WISE research lab has developed the ArtVis application to explore information based on advanced visualisation techniques in combination with a tangible user interface.
From the academic year 2021/2013 on (first semester), WISE is offering a new course on Next Generation User Interfaces.
