About me

My aim with Springer is to publish science books for graduate students, advanced professionals, and researchers in both academia and industry in the areas of information systems (including the new series Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing), databases (including the series Data-Centric Systems and Applications) and Information Retrieval (including the Information Retrieval Series), Web technologies, software engineering, and programming languages and techniques. Based on my own professional background as a system architect, software developer, project manager, senior consultant (and some other nice titles used exhaustively in the computer science industry) working 15+ years both at universities and with companies like Siemens and SAP, I have some idea of what a valuable and successful computer science book should deliver. I am always interested in learning about possible books which will help our target groups to better understand new concepts, new technologies, new solutions, new opportunities - put briefly, to raise their level of knowledge and expertise. You may either send me your proposals or discuss them with me directly at one of the conferences that I plan to attend.
