EAI International Workshop – Data Science for Mobile Health Applications


The ever-increasing amount of data obtained within services and processes for mobile health applications requires an adaptation of the use of this data to make the added value of this data available to companies. Mobile health apps require the use of data science methods to highlight anomalies in data and make it available for treatment in a timely manner. This workshop will present the current use of data science methods in the context of mobile health apps and its challenges to a wide variety of stakeholders. In addition, aspects of data uncertainty, quality or presentation can be addressed in contributions. The aspect of data protection and security can also be addressed and lead to an active discussion in the workshop.

The Special Session will focus on, but not be limited to, topics such as:

  • Mobile health applications (such as a mobile app for a personal medication list in case of accident)
  • Process modeling of mobile health applications
  • Data science methods (e.g. anomaly detection, dealing with missing data)
  • Data uncertainty, quality, defects, and presentation (in mobile health applications)
  • Data protection issues for the use of personal data
  • Communication channels for mobile health applications

Bio of Workshop Chairs

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jorge Marx Gómez – University Oldenburg
Prof. Dr. Jorge Marx Gómez studied Computer Engineering and Industrial Engineering at the
University of Applied Science in Berlin (Germany). He was a lecturer and researcher at the
Otto-von-Guericke-University Magdeburg (Germany) where he also obtained a PhD degree
2001 in Business Information Systems. From 2002 until 2003 he was a visiting professor for
Business Informatics at the Technical University of Clausthal (Germany) and worked as guest
lecturer in different countries. In 2004 he received his postdoctoral lecture qualification
(Habilitation) at the Otto-von-Guericke-University Magdeburg. In 2004 he received a
Honorary Professorship in Business Informatics at Universidad Central de las Villas (Cuba).
Since 2006 Jorge Marx Gómez is a full professor and chair of Business Information Systems
at the Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg (Germany). He is furthermore the director
of the Center for Environmental and Sustainability Research (COAST) at Oldenburg University
and board member of the Energy Group at OFFIS-Institute. His research interests include
Business Information Systems, Federated ERP-Systems, Business Intelligence, Data Science,
Applied AI, Interoperability, Environmental Management Information Systems, ICT for
Sustainability and E- and Mobile-Commerce. Prof. Dr. Jorge Marx Gómez successfully
coordinated several national and international research, capacity building and mobility
projects (Tempus, Erasmus Mundus, DAAD) and participated in several EU-FP7 projects.

Dr.-Ing. Volkan Gizli – University Oldenburg
Dr.-Ing. Volkan Gizli studied computer science at the University of Bremen (Germany) and
wrote a diploma thesis on "User-oriented design of online alumni networks using the
example of the Alumni community Bremen e.V.". He then worked as a research assistant at
the Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg, where he also received his PhD in 2020 with
the topic "Preference-based identification of strengths and weaknesses to increase the
efficiency of data centers". During his time as a research assistant, he gained experience in IT
service management with key performance indicators (KPI) and KPI systems as well as
dashboard systems, among other things, in research collaborations with Volkswagen AG.
Subsequently, he was involved in a large research project dealing with the energy efficiency
improvement of data centers, in which he also developed his dissertation topic, with which
he expanded efficiency research, in addition to energy, to include other characteristics. After
his PhD, he engaged in further research projects embedded in the field of AI, focusing on
Natural Language Processing (NLP). His main research interests are in the area of KPI, KPI
systems, data centers and efficiency research at Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg.

Dr.-Ing. Andreas Solsbach – University Oldenburg
Dr.-Ing. Andreas Solsbach first studied business information systems (diploma) at the
University of Clausthal and then continued in Oldenburg as research assistant (since 2007)
with his PhD in the topic of “Inter-organizational Sustainability Reporting through Document
Engineering” (obtained in 2015). During his studies of business information systems and the
PhD, Andreas Solsbach gained experience in the fields of sustainability reporting,
information management, business intelligence and data science through projects and
teaching activities (e.g. in Chile, South Africa and Mozambique). Cooperation partners in
projects here included Volkswagen AG, Hellmann Worldwide Logistics SE & Co. KG or Cewe
Stiftung & Co. KGaA. The main topics of his work are towards transparency and stakeholder-
orientation for sustainability reporting, project management and acquisition, and teaching
activities especially with SAP solutions at Oldenburg university (e.g. course of study
consultant for the B.Sc. business information system at Oldenburg university).
