Conference Chair


Lemonia Ragia
Technical University of Crete
Greece


Brief Bio
Lemonia Ragia has a diploma degree from the Department of Rural and Surveying Engineering at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. Her doctoral degree was at the Institute of Photogrammetry, University of Bonn, Germany. After completing her doctoral thesis she was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Knowledge Discovery Team, Fraunhofer Institute for Autonomous Intel lnteligent Systems (IAIS now) working on spatial data mining. After that she worked as a senior research scientist at the Information Systems and Database Technology of the Computer Science Department of the Technical Un versity of Aachen, Germany working in the area of spatial data bases and data integration.

Doctoral Consortium Chair


Armanda Rodrigues
Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia, Universidade Nova de Lisboa
Portugal
http://ctp.di.fct.unl.pt/~arodrigues


Brief Bio
Armanda Rodrigues is an Assistant Professor at Departamento de Informática, FCT/UNL since 2002, where she teaches courses and develops research in Computer Science and Geographic Information Technology. She is an integrated member of Multimodal Systems Group of NOVA LINCS and is interested in Web-GIS, Emergency Management and Geo-collaboration. The main issues in Armanda’s research are inspired from very practical and real situations, characteristic of different computational environments where geospatial information and context is relevant. From this initial setting she is interest d in providing models, methods, tools and infrastructures that may enable improvements in the use of Web/Mobile GIS systems, particularly focusing in changes in context and in collaborative environments. She has developed research toward enabling geo-collaborative integrative environments involving heterogeneous information sources and structured user hierarchies. Armanda has been involved in several International and national research projects related with Geographic Information Systems, Simulation, Web-GIS and Geo-Collaborative Systems with case studies in the areas of Emergency Management, Digital Heritage and Agronomy. She is the author and co-author of several GI Science and Computer Science peer reviewed publications. She has also reviewed and served in the program committee of various GI national and international conferences as well as peered review journals. ... More >>
