Organizers and PC

Dominique Guinard
- Institute for Pervasive Computing, ETH Zurich and SAP Research, Switzerland
Dominique Guinard is doctoral student at the Department of Computer Science of ETH Zurich, a Research Associate for SAP Research and a member of the Auto-ID labs. He was formerly a researcher at the Information Management group of ETH working on mobile interactions with the Internet of Things for Nokia Research. Before this, he was a scientific collaborator at the University of Fribourg where he worked on scalable software architectures for the Internet of Things together with SUN Microsystems Switzerland. He received his MSc in Computer Science from University of Fribourg and the Ubicomp lab of Lancaster University (UK), where he worked with Prof. Hans Gellersen on using sensor networks to support mobile spontaneous interactions with the physical world. Dominique is the co-founder of the webofthings.com initiative. His research interest is in Web-inspired and lightweight architectures for a global Web of Things.

Erik Wilde
- School of Information, UC Berkeley, USA
Erik Wilde is Professor at the UC Berkeley School of Information. He has over 10 years of background in working in Web-related fields, ranging from XML and data modeling issues to questions of Web services and RESTful design principles. Erik graduated from TU Berlin in computer science in 1991, got his PhD from ETH Zurich in computer communications in 1997, and since then has worked at ICSI in Berkeley, ETH Zurich, and for the past three years at UC Berkeley's School of Information, where he teaches Web Architecture and XML technologies. Two of his main research themes in the past years have been how to make the Web location-aware, and how to design and implement loosely coupled RESTful services; both of these themes have very close ties to the "Web of Things", and Erik's midterm research goals are location-enabling the Web, and moving it past the limitations of information resources alone.

Vlad Trifa
- Institute for Pervasive Computing, ETH Zurich and SAP Research, Switzerland
Vlad Trifa is a PhD student at ETH Zurich at the Institute for Pervasive Computing, and a Research Associate SAP Research Zurich since May 2007. He graduated in April 2006 with a M.Sc. degree in Computer Science at the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL), with a concentration in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics. His thesis project was done at University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), with Prof. Charles Taylor at the Department of Organismic Biology, Ecology and Evolution, jointly with Prof. Deborah Estrin at the Center of Embedded Networked Sensing (CENS), where he developed a framework to use sensor networks to study the influence of environmental factors upon the evolution of bird songs in real environments. Between May 2006 and April 2007, he was an intern researcher at the Humanoid Robotics and Computational Neuroscience Laboratories, at the ATR Research Center near Kyoto, Japan, where he worked on multimodal human-robot interaction.
