Architecture Seminar

The Global Infrastructures research group will have a Architecture Seminar during spring 2015.

Architecture (, Creative Commons)

The Architecture seminar will be open for faculties and PhD-students in the GI group. The seminar will be based on presentations by the participants - their own work, a 'normal' lecture or an interesting paper (or perhaps something else). The topic will broadly be architecture (related to complex information systems)

The aim of the seminar is to:

  • Spur discussions around architecture
  • Share key perspectives and work done in our group on the topic
  • Identify key readings on the topic
  • Create input to a future Architecture course (perspectives, cases and curriculum)

Time: Wednesdays from 10:15 - 12:00

Place: HISP lab (including a joint lunch from 11:30)

Structure: One presentation at each seminar with dicussions. Presentations are expected to (at least breifly) describe:

  • a) Definition/conceptualization of architecture
  • b) The general research problem/question related to architecture
  • c) The way/direction in which architecture is theorized
  • d) 3 key architecture papers
