Business Modelling Design

This is a system design activity aimed at developing a preliminary version of the Business Strategic Model for an organization using the well-known Business Model Canvas. Following that approach, the model helps the organization to make explicit the organization’s value propositions, customer relationships, customer segme...

Ontology Evaluation and (Re)Design

This is a system design activity aimed at helping an organization to evaluate and (re)design/evolve a small domain ontology using state of the art ontology evaluation techniques.

Ontology Design

This is a system design activity aimed at helping an organization to develop a small-sized ontology for a domain of interest to the organization.

Preliminary Service-Oriented Enterprise Architecture Model

Proposing a preliminary Enterprise Architecture Model for an Organization using the international standard ARCHIMATE. This model could represent basic aspects of a  Service-Oriented Architecture, also exploring its relation to Information Systems and Infrastructure Design.

Evaluating the Ontological Adequacy of an Information Model

This is an activity is about the use of modern analyses and evaluation techniques to assess the ontological quality of a domain ontology/information/data/conceptual model.

Advanced Information Modelling for Semantic Interoperability

Advanced Course on Information Modeling. In particular, the course employs the modeling language OntoUML and its associated methodological and computational tools to address the topic of conceptual modeling for Semantic Interoperability. The course also discusses the relation between OntoUML and the OMG SIMF – Semantic Information Model Federation – Initiative. 

Ontological Analysis and Engineering

Teaching activity on Ontology Engineering comprising Ontological Analysis, Ontology Modeling, Ontology Codification (including aspects related to the Semantic Web)  and Validation (using visual simulation). 

Business Modelling and Value Proposition Design

Introductory course in the Business Modeling Canvas and related techniques and how they can be used for Value Proposition Design. The course also discusses the relation between Business Modeling and Enterprise Architecture.  

Advanced Course on Service-Oriented Enterprise Architecture

User Interface Evaluation

This activity will address the expert-based evaluation of an existing user interface by means of, for instance, heuristic evaluation. Heuristics evaluation of interfaces can be done by two experts, and will return a list of related issues and possible solutions. Alternatively, the activity can be a teaching activity: a series of lectures and labs concerning how to design and prototype UIs.

Applicability of Recommender Systems

Recommendation systems automatically match online users with products, documents or in general, items. They can, for instance, increase the click-through rate, purchases or average basket size in online shops. Based on a set of specifics and requirements of a domain and with access to data, offline experimentations will be performed.
