Short Curriculum Vitae:

He has participated with one or more talks at about 20 events on electronic information and communication in 2000, including continental congresses in Lisbon, Barcelona, Rio de Janeiro, Havanna, Moscow, and Manila. He has been elected as member of the scientific committee for several conferences on the subject in 2001: (Crimea, Athens, Coimbra, Linz, Guatemala City) and received invitations for plenary lectures at additional conferences.

These activities give an excellent background to organise the information dissemination and exploitation activities for the project.
