Hilda Tellioğlu
Vienna University of Technology, Austria

Hilda is an Associate Professor at the Institute of Design and Assessment of Technology, Vienna University of Technology. As a computer scientist she has been involved with both research and teaching on: software engineering, design and development of information technology in networked (work) environments, computer support for co-operative work (CSCW) in systems design in health care work and in architectural planning, knowledge management, social networks, interaction design, tangible user interaction, gender issues in computer science. Her Habilitation thesis is about “Cooperative Work”. Currently, she is the coordinator of TOPIC (The Online Platform for Informal Caregivers), a European project funded by the AAL (Ambient Assisted Living) Program. She has published over 70 journal and conference papers and has experience managing research and industrial projects in national and international levels.

Myriam Lewkowicz
Troyes University of Technology, France

Myriam is Full Professor at UTT where she is leading the Tech-CICO research team and is part of the Scientific and Technological Program on E-Health from UMR CNRS 6281. She holds a PhD from Univ. Paris 6 on “Designing Groupware for cooperative Knowledge Management” and she obtained her Habilitation at UTC on “The role of models in designing systems for mediated collective practices – methodological, conceptual and instrumental contributions to an interdisciplinary research in CSCW”. Her interdisciplinary research focuses on defining innovative platforms to support existing collective practices or designing new collective activities. This research leads to reflections and propositions on analysis and design approaches for defining new devices and services. She is Program Committee member of the main scientific conferences in Computer Supported Cooperative Work and member of the Editorial Advisory Board of the Journal of Collaborative Computing and Work Practices.

He holds a B.Sc. and a M.Sc. in Computer Science from the Federal University of São Carlos, São Paulo, Brazil, and a Multidisciplinary PhD developed within a joint project between the Interaction Design Centre of the Department of Computer Science and Information Systems, University of Limerick, Ireland, and the Department of Sociology of the same university. His interests span Human-Computer Interaction, Interaction Design, Computer Supported Cooperative Work, Ubiquitous and Mobile Computing and Informatics in Education. He has published several articles on topics related to these fields of research in prestigious international conferences.

Susanne Schinkinger
Vienna University of Technology, Austria

Susanne holds a Master in Medical Computer Science from the Vienna University of Technology and a Master in Nursing Studies from the University of Vienna. Currently she works as a PhD scholar in the Multidisciplinary Design Group of the Institute for Development and Assessment of Technology at the Vienna University of Technology. Her research is integral part of the TOPIC project and her interests are centred on issues of technological support in the context of informal care.

Matthieu Tixier
Troyes University of Technology, France

Matthieu is Assistant Professor at UTT and part of the Tech-CICO research team from “Institut Charles Delaunay” (UMR CNRS 6281). His interests are in software engineering and the development of approaches for the design of tools intended to people with special needs related to their physical, social or cognitive condition. His research is grounded in Computer Supported Cooperative Work, Social Informatics, Human Computer Interaction and Accessibility. He holds a MSc in Cognitive Sciences from the University of Lorraine, France, and a PhD developed on the framework of the interdisciplinary research program MISS (Internet Models for Social Support) for the study and the technological support of social support practices on the Internet.
