We love to work closely with Bachelor and Master students. Likely, you will be supervised by both, one of our Ph.D. students and Prof. Beel, and you will be actively joining our research group. If we agree to supervise your thesis, you can expect close and professional supervision from us. We will support you with ideas, advice, constructive feedback, office space, and the required equipment to ensure that you complete your thesis on time and to the highest standards. And if you manage to publish your work at a good conference independently, we may pay for your conference travel (subject to available funding and prior discussion).


You can expect meetings with us every two to four weeks, depending on your progress, or, if needed, more often. You will also receive extensive feedback on your written drafts. Occasionally you may present your work to all ISG group members.

Office Space

You are very welcome to work in our offices. You will get your own desk equipped with Gigabit LAN and two screens, and you will be able to enjoy an amazing view from the 8th floor. You can also use our kitchen with free tea and coffee, a fridge, a microwave, and a large dining table.


Besides the infrastructure our university provides (e.g. a GPU cluster), we are happy to purchase additional equipment if needed. For instance, if you work on a project relating to e.g. smart homes or eHealth we are open to purchasing e.g. a smartwatch for your work.

Conference Travel

If you manage to write a full paper based on your thesis and get it accepted for publication by an A-ranked conference, we guarantee to pay for your travel, including flight, hotel, etc. We may also pay when you get a short paper accepted, or publish at a B conference, but we do guarantee that.
