Efthimis N. Efthimiadis

Efthimis Efthimiadis obtained a Ph.D in Information Science from City University London in 1992. His research focused on the design of front-end interfaces that improve access to databases, and on the evaluation of information retrieval systems. Further interests included the application of probabilistic techniques to information retrieval and in methods that incorporate user preferences and user interaction in the retrieval techniques. Efthimiadis' research in the area of query expansion was concerned with the evaluation of ranking algorithms and the study of the searching behaviour of endusers. Professor Efthimiadis taught courses on the principles of information retrieval, database design, online search techniques, internet access, introduction to information science, business information and medical informatics.

Juan M. Fernández-Luna

Juan Manuel Fernández-Luna got his Computer Science degree in 1994 at the University of Granada, Spain. In 2001 he got his PhD at the same institution, working on a thesis in which several retrieval models based on Bayesian networks for Information Retrieval where designed. Currently, his main research area is XML retrieval, although he also is working in collaboration with Juan F. Huete in collaborative IR, recommender systems, learning to rank and heterogeneous data source integration. He has got experience organizing international conferences and workshops, among them the I and II International Workshops on Teaching and Learning of Information Retrieval. He has been co-editor of several journal special issues, highlighting the special Information Retrieval issue on Teaching and Learning of Information Retrieval. He also belongs to the programme committees of the main IR conferences.

Juan F. Huete

Juan F. Huete is assistant professor at the Department of Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence at the University of Granada. He got his PhD in 1995, researching on the uncertainty treatment in Artificial Intelligence under the formalism of Bayesian networks. From 1998, his research interest is Information Retrieval, designing retrieval models based on these graphical models. He is currently also working in the Recommender System field, although other fields like collaborative IR or learning to rank. He has been co-editor of a special Information and Processing Management issue on Bayesian networks and Information Retrieval. He has co-organized several international conferences, as well as workshops. Among these last types of events, the following three could be highlighted: I and II International Workshop on Teaching and Learning of Information Retrieval and the SIGIR'07 Workshop on Information Retrieval and Graphical Models.

Andrew MacFarlane

Andrew MacFarlane is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Information Science at City University, and currently co-directs the Centre of Interactive Systems Research with Prof Stephen Robertson of Microsoft Research Cambridge. He got his PhD Information Science from the same Department under the supervision of Prof Robertson and Dr. J.A. McCann (now at Imperial College London) in 2000. His research interests currently focus on a number of areas including parallel computing for information retrieval, disabilities and Information Retrieval (dyslexia in particular), AI techniques for Information Retrieval and Filtering, and Open Source Software Development. He is the Chair of the BCS Information Retrieval Specialist Group and is a long standing member of that SG.
