Welcome to the homepage of the chair for Mobile Multimedia Information Systems (MMIS) at the Institute for Computer Science within the Faculty of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering at the University of Rostock.

Ubiquitous computing has made digitally enhanced appliances available throughout our everyday environments. At MMIS, we work on enabling these devices to provide us with proactive and coherent assistance. Our research concentrates on two areas:

  • Recognizing user activities and user intentions from sensor data by employing statistical inference methods. (Research area intention recognition)
  • Enabling devices to provide cooperative assistance through multi-agent mechanisms. (Research area strategy synthesis)

In our research projects we look at application areas such as smart environments for collaborative knowledge exploration, mobile work force assistance, and dementia diagnostics.
