NSS@45th Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS)
published on Monday, January 16th 2012


The members of the NSS team have successfully presented some of their work at the 45th HICSS (Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences) that was held in Maui in Hawaii from January 4th to January 7th 2012. The HICSS is one of the longest-standing continuously running scientific conferences. It brings together researchers in a friendly atmosphere that is conducive to free exchange of scientific ideas. The HICSS-45 offered a unique, highly interactive and professionally challenging environment that attendees found helpful to attain lots of different perspectives and ideas as a result of discussion.   

In particular, members of the NSS project team presented their work in the track and workshops related to Service Science. In the “HICSS Workshop on Service Science” on the 4th of January 2012 Martin Matzner and Hans Peter Rauer gave a short presentation on the current status on Design-science oriented research with their talk on “Framework-Based Review of IT Artifacts in Germany”. On the subsequent day, in the mini-track “Service Science, Management and Engineering (SSME)” Hans Peter Rauer presented the paper “Service Productivity Management – Status Quo and Directions for the Design of Conceptual Modeling Grammars” by Jörg Becker, Daniel Beverungen, Ralf Knackstedt, Hans Peter Rauer and Daniel Sigge.  The presentation of the paper featured an evaluation of the expressiveness of conceptual modeling grammars for service productivity management. In addition, directions for future research were identified, namely additional constructs that need to be included to facilitate productivity-oriented analysis and design in the service sector.
