Miltiadis D. Lytras is Associate Professor at Deree- ACG with a research focus on semantic web, knowledge management and e-learning, with more than 100 publications. He has co-edited more than 45 special issues in International Journals (IEEE Transaction on Knowledge and Data Engineering, IEEE Internet Computing, IEEE Transactions on Education, Computers in Human Behaviour, Interactive Learning Environments, Journal of Knowledge Management, Journal of Computer Assisted Learning) and has authored/(co-)edited 42 books (e.g. Open Source for Knowledge and Learning Management, Ubiquitous and Pervasive Knowledge Management, Intelligent Learning Infrastructures for Knowledge Intensive Organizations, Semantic Web Based Information Systems, China Information Technology Handbook, Real World Applications of Semantic Web and Ontologies, Web 2.0: The Business Model, etc.). He (has) serves(ed) as the (Co) Editor in Chief of 8 international journals (e.g. International Journal on Semantic Web and Information Systems, International Journal of Knowledge Society Research, International Journal of Knowledge and Learning, International Journal of Technology Enhanced Learning).
Paraskevi Papadopoulou is Professor of Biology at Deree-The American College of Greece. She holds Biology degrees from the University of California, Los Angeles and from the University of Athens and a PhD in Biophysics and Cell Biology from the University of Athens. Her research interests are focused in the fields of Structural Biology/Molecular Biophysics and Computational Biology/Bioinformatics, on structural and self-assembly studies of fibrous proteins, which form extracellular, proteinaceous structures of physiological importance like lepidopteran, dipteran and fish chorions. Model structures of chorion proteins and their interactions have been proposed. Her current engagement includes the development of genetic testing protocols for genetic diseases such as Tuberous Sclerosis and of Neurofibromatosis type 1. She is also interested in Higher Education research and innovative ways of teaching. In addition to teaching biology and environmental studies courses she has served as Head of the department of Science, Technology and Mathematics at Deree-ACG for 6 years.
