In this paper, we present a follow-up with the current status, lessons learned, and preliminary results of the IT infrastructure in project STROKE OWL. The project aims at a comprehensive implementation of cross-sector care management for stroke patients. Patients are accompanied in their recovery by stroke pilots, who use a specially designed tablet app for the piloting. It is shown how the tablet app uses receiver-oriented encryption to support the piloting process while ensuring privacy.

In this paper, we present the prototype of a puzzle app, which we explicitly designed with the human-centred design (HCD) process for dyslexia screening in pre-reader using new indicators related to motor skills to ensure users needs for the data collection to apply machine learning prediction. The app records the telemetry of the gaming sequence in order to derive future statements about the prevalence of dyslexia based on the telemetry data.

In this paper, we present a novel approach including sinusoid models that use skeletal motion data from an RGB-D (Kinect) sensor and the Differential Evolution (DE) optimization algorithm to dynamically fit sinusoidal curves to derive frequency and depth parameters for cardiopulmonary resuscitation training.

I am very pleased to announce that today I have submitted my doctoral thesis for the doctorate of engineering sciences (Dr.-Ing.) at the faculty VI of the University of Oldenburg. The submission was delayed by two months due to private circumstances and the corona pandemic and I am all the happier that it worked out now. The disputation and thus the official conclusion of the doctoral process will be in December this year.


I translate and quote from the website of the University of Oldenburg: “Christian Lins, PhD student at the University of Oldenburg and research assistant at OFFIS, has received the “Hermine Heusler-Edenhuizen Prize” of the Faculty VI Medicine and Health Sciences of the University of Oldenburg. With this award, the faculty honors a publication of the young scientist, which was published in the journal “Applied Soft Computing” in 2019. In this publication, Lins describes an approach for a new type of training system that supports first responders with a camera system when they train CPR on training mannequins.


I came across a problem today that a dialog window appears (or better: hides) behind the main window in a Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) application. Consider the following C# code: var mainWindow = new MainWindow(); mainWindow.Show(); var dialog = new DialogWindow(); dialog.ShowDialog(); Window.ShowDialog() deactivates the message loop of the main window so that only the dialog box can be used. However, if you forget to set the owner of the dialog box, the dialog window behind the main window may disappear.


I’ve updated my personal website using the Academic theme for the website generator Hugo. Some things are unfinished but I think it looks quite good.
