The research group “Information Systems & Service Design” (ISSD) headed by Prof. Mädche focuses in research, education, and innovation on designing interactive intelligent systems.  The research belongs to the Institute of Information Systems and Marketing (IISM) and is embedded into the Information Systems & Engineering group. 

The research group is positioned at the intersection of Information Systems (german: Wirtschaftsinformatik) and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). Our mission is to create impactful scientific knowledge for designing interactive intelligent systems that enable humans to perform activities more efficiently, effectively, and meaningful. We believe that delivering cutting-edge knowledge and inspiring education, as well as an ongoing dialog with the public need to go hand in hand to maximize the impact of our work in organizations and society.

The group is organized in three research departments: Digital Experience & ParticipationIntelligent Enterprise Systems, and Interactive Systems Engineering. Current topics of research are Human-AI Interaction, Cognitive Interaction Technologies, Eye-Tracking and Physiological Computing Systems, Interactive Business Intelligence & Analytics Systems, and AI-based Interactive Systems Engineering.
