In Germany, we have quite a few universities as well as universities of applied science were you can study information science. Generally, these institutions have their own curricula and the students do not necessarily know other institutions. Even if researchers and lecturers from different institutions may have met at conferences, workshops or on other occasions, the students usually have not. This changed when Katrin Weller, Isabella Peters and Dirk Lewandowski had the idea of organizing a student workshop for research in information science called SWiF. The first SWiF took place in 2010 in Düsseldorf. Since then, the workshop was repeated every year at different locations in Germany, giving students from different institutions in the German-speaking region the opportunity to meet fellow students and to present their own research results.
since October 15, we have a new ESC board – and it is larger than ever! Some of the members may be familiar to you while others are not. Time for a presentation of the new board members!
