The current office hours are indicated on the start page.
The main focus of Prof. Voß´ interests is located in the fields of Information Systems, Supply Chain Management and Logistics as well as Intelligent Search. He has an international reputation as a result of numerous publications in these fields.
Current research projects are, among others, considering problem formulations in the field of Information Systems in Transport, Supply Chain Management as well as Meta-Heuristics and Intelligent Search Algorithms in practical applications.
Prof. Voß participates in advisory boards and editorships, respectively, for academic journals such as INFORMS Journal on Computing, Public Transport Journal, and Journal of Heuristics.
Lectures and Courses
The Institute`s university coursework focuses on all levels of students from business administration, economics, mathematics, computer science, and industrial engineering.
Besides Introduction to Information Systems, further courses deepen the information systems education with classical as well as modern topics as well as project management, planning, and decision analysis.
The goal of the education is to develop the ability to work analytically through complex interrelations in appropriate areas, and the skill to generate creative solution approaches through sound knowledge in methodology.
