Welcome to the Chair of Information Systems, Social Computing

Prof Dr Matthias Trier

In research and teaching, we deal comprehensively with innovative technologies and digital social behaviour in the context of social media and digital cooperation. This includes the analysis of digital customer behaviour on social media platforms such as Twitter, Instagram or Reddit, the evolution of employee networking over time, e.g. with event-based dynamic network analysis, barriers and opportunities for the exchange of expertise in companies or new digital interaction possibilities in social VR. Join us on this journey and feel free to contact us

Yours, Prof Dr Matthias Trier

Prof. Trier investigates phenomena of electronic communication and social influence effects in online media within and outside the organisation using a mixed methods approach that combines quantitative, qualitative and network analytical methods. Example topics include the implementation/application of social media, online participation, the design of electronic discourses (e.g. from a management perspective), information transfer, dissemination processes or bottom-up community development in the context of knowledge management initiatives. A particular methodological focus is the development of an event-driven method for dynamic network analysis (see corresponding softwarewww.commetrix.net). It enables research into new structures and dynamic processes of human networking.

Our teaching

The use of social media & social computing is an important topic and plays a prominent and growing role in digitalised companies in terms of customer interaction or our own work processes! Now, for the first time, this field of research is also represented with a comprehensive range of courses on the Bachelor's degree programme in Business Informatics. This gives you a head start compared to many other universities and allows you to deal with the subject systematically, practically and in depth during your studies. In addition, there are many opportunities to gain important advantages for starting a career with us as a student and academic MA.
