The project partners of the DFG priority programme "Volunteered Geographic Information" met in Würzburg to kick off the project. From our chair, two researchers (Thomas van Dijk and Sabine Storand) are engaged in the programme.
In the upcoming Winter Term 2016/17, Professor Seipel's research group offers a Master's Practical Course to connect current research topics in the field of Databases and Logic Programming with other, modern technologies.
Our paper "Block Crossings in Storyline Visualizations" has received the best paper award at GD'16. The paper is joint work by researchers of our chair, two students from Würzburg and colleagues from California and the Ukraine.
In September, our chair was present at the Workshop on (Constraint) Logic Programming (WLP). Falco Nogatz and Frank Flederer presented their paper, which were done in collaboration with Dietmar Seipel, Ludwig Ostermayer and Sergio Montenegro.
