inconso Honors Young Scientists
In the middle of May it was time again: As in previous years, inconso AG, headquartered in Bad Nauheim, Germany, donated the award for the best thesis in business informatics. For the 11th time, the logistics software specialist awarded prizes to the student with the best thesis in the category “IT systems in logistics” and to the year’s best freshmen and sophomores.

This year's best thesis in the category “IT systems in logistics” went to Johannes Nguyen, who had developed an approach for visualizing SWRL rules in his work titled “Conceptual Modelling and Visualisation of Ontology-Based Knowledge Representation.” Considering that the digital exchange of information between application programs and services involves specific problem areas, the approach developed by the awardee details the advantages and potential of displaying content graphically. Johannes Nguyen amazed the jury with a process pertaining to the processing of knowledge in digital and formal form; the control and monitoring of complex systems is becoming increasingly important as digitalization progresses.

At this year's awards ceremony, Wilfried Pfuhl, member of the Board of Directors at inconso AG, explained that megatrends such as digitalization, demography and flexibilization are playing increasingly crucial roles while also strongly influencing logistics. "Artificial intelligence processes will also become more common in logistics management. Today, heuristic procedures usually determine how processes are executed. The demands on the performance of intelligent systems are increasing," stresses Pfuhl. Prof. Dr. Christian Schulze of the TH Mittelhessen moderated this year’s awards ceremony. It was supported by other renowned companies in the region.
