Jeroen Bekaert

Jeroen Bekaert received a Masters in Engineering (Architecture and Urbanism) in 2001 from Ghent University, Belgium. In October 2002, he obtained a fellowship as a Research Assistant from the Fund for Scientific Research (Flanders, Belgium) to conduct doctoral research. He is doing this research at the Department of Electronics and Information Systems, Ghent University. In March 2003, Jeroen joined the Digital Library Research and Prototyping Team at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, focusing his research on the possible synergy between Digital Library and MPEG-21 architecture. His research interests include the current MPEG standardization efforts (MPEG-4, MPEG-7 and MPEG-21), multimedia processing and delivery, digital library architecture and interoperability, and digital preservation.

Bill Oldroyd

Bill Oldroyd is a member of the e-Architecture Team at the British Library. He has been involved in developing a pilot SRU/Z39.50 Gateway. The Gateway has been used by the TEL project to demonstrate the feasibility of integrating both SRU and Z39.50 access through the TEL Portal. Bill is now working on implementing a production version of the Gateway, which uses the next version of SRU, which is to be announced shortly.

Jeremy Roschelle

Jeremy Roschelle is a Senior Cognitive Scientist at SRI International's Center for Technology in Learning. Jeremy's research examines the design and classroom use of innovations that offer the possibility of enabling many more people to learn complex and conceptually difficult ideas in mathematics and science. Two running themes in his work are the study of collaboration in learning and the appropriate use of advanced or emerging technologies (such as digital libraries, component software and wireless handhelds) in education. Jeremy has been seeking to address large-scale use of innovative technologies in education, both through consulting to companies with a large impact in the market, such as Texas Instruments, and through implementation research on scaling up promising research-based technologies.

Nicole Shechtman

Nicole Shechtman is a Research Social Scientist at SRI International's Center for Technology in Learning. A research psychologist by training, her research examines the design and use of technologies that support representationally rich, inquiry-based, and collaborative learning in the math and science classrooms. Before joining SRI, she worked on a bioinformatics software design team at Agilent Laboratories contributing to an ethnographic user study of a biotechnology company to understand the information needs and collaborative dynamics of molecular biologists. Nicole's graduate work at Stanford University in experimental psychology compared and contrasted the dynamics of human-human communication and human-computer interaction.
