The department Enterprise Information Systems (EIS) at the Institute for Applied Computer Science at University of Bonn and Fraunhofer Institute for Intelligent Analysis and Information Systems (IAIS) is led by Sören Auer.

The primary objective of the research group is to advance research and technology in the field of enterprise information systems & semantic technologies and to widely apply this research in large-scale use cases. A particular focus of research and technology is information, data and knowledge integration employing Linked Data strategies. The department is committed to the open source, open access and open knowledge movements.

We achieved many projects and are actively working on several others. Please have a look at some of our demos:

  • ExConQuer Linked Data Publication and Consumption Framework

  • FuhSen A Platform for Federated, RDF-based Hybrid Search

  • iRap Interest-based RDF update propagation framework

  • LinDA Enabling Linked Data and Analytics for SMEs

  • LinkDaViz A Visualization Approach Employing Automatic Binding of Linked Data to Visualizations

  • Luzzu Quality Assessment Framework for LOD

  • SemAnn Web-based semantic annotation tool for PDF documents.

  • SINA question answering system for Linked Data

  • SlideWiki helps communities to create great presentations collaborativel

  • VoCol A low-threshold agile methodology for collaborative vocabulary development
