Informatik 5 and b-it Host IDEA League Doctoral School ECS-BIT'18 Held in Aachen

The IDEA League is a focused network of leading European universities of science and technology, aiming to keep European research on engineering and sciences in a leading position worldwide. Its members are TU Delft, RWTH Aachen, ETH Zurich, Chalmers University and Politecnico di Milano.

IDEA League Doctoral Schools have recently been introduced as a means to foster the exchange and interdisciplinary cooperation among young researchers within and beyond the member universities. As one early example, Prof. Barbara Pernici (Politecnico di Milano) together with Prof. Matthias Jarke are organizing a distributed IDEA League Doctoral School 2018 in which 32 doctoral candidates from all member universities and a couple of research institutes including Fraunhofer attend two to four-day compact classes in each IDEA League site on various aspects of "Engineering Complex Systems with IT and Big Data" (ECS-BIT'18). 


The Aachen meeting (March 11-13, 2018) was held at the b-it Research School in Informatikzentrum Hörn and focused on fundamental concepts and practical experiences including process mining (Prof. Wil van der Aalst), knowledge graphs for research information management (Prof. Stefan Decker), Social Network Analytics (PD Dr. Ralf Klamma), Industry 4.0 integration (Prof. Thomas Gries), and Safety and Security (Prof. Stefan Kowalewski). This inspired lively debates with the doctoral students who did not just represent the five universities, but also many disciplines and rich cultural backgrounds from over 15 home countries from Europe, Africa, the Americas, and many parts of Asia.
