Tutorial Session Portrait

Vladan Devedžic is both an active researcher and practitioner in the fields of intelligent systems and software engineering. His major long-term professional goal is a continuous effort to bring close together the ideas from the broad fields of intelligent systems and software engineering. In that sense, his current efforts and research interests are oriented towards practical engineering aspects of developing intelligent educational systems on the Web. He has written more than 260 papers (50 of them have been published in internationally recognized journals by publishers such as ACM, IEEE, Elsevier, etc.), six books on intelligent systems, and several chapters in books on intelligent systems and software engineering edited by distinguished scientists.
His recent 2 books, entitled "Model Driven Architecture and Ontology Development" and "Semantic Web and Education" (Springer Verlag, Berlin/New York) are due Summer 2006.
He has also developed several practical intelligent systems and tools, and actively participates as a consultant to several ongoing projects in industry. He is an associated partner at the EU Framework 6 IST Network of Excellence project ProLearn, and a member of the ARIADNE Foundation for the European Knowledge Pool.
