Kenneth Qua presents at the 57th Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences in Honolulu, Hawaii

I had an enriching discussion after presenting my paper, co-authored with Professor Verena Dorner and Akos Barta, titled “See It, Say It: Encouraging Citizen Reporting of Sustainability and Inclusivity Infrastructure Issues in Cities”.
The paper discusses how citizen reporting can be encouraged to improve public infrastructure issues in line with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 11 on creating sustainable and inclusive cities. Read the full paper here.

Anke, it was great to have you at our institute

Anke Greif-Winzrieth

We were very happy to welcome back Anke Greif-Winzrieth (KIT, Manager KD2Lab), for a research and teaching stay! Anke’s joint expert talk with Julian Quandt, manager of WULabs, in our Digital Economy master’s program really helped our students improve their experimental design and planning, thank you! It was great to continue work on our ongoing research project on foreign live biofeedback – we’re excited for the results from that study!
Hope to see you again soon in #Karlsruhe or #Vienna!

The PhD Network’s first Career Talks with Miriam Flickinger was a hit!

The PhD Network, with the continued support of the Institute for Digital Ecosystems and the ISOM department, had the privilege of hosting a career talk by Professor Miriam Flickinger (Freie Universität Berlin, Germany) titled "Career Development in Academia".
The event was attended by praedocs from various institutes and departments of WU with many insightful hard-hitting questions being brought up during the discussion. We would like to thank Professor Flickinger for taking the time to share her story and advice with us.
