Keynote Speakers for
Prof. Steven T. Moore
Central Queensland University, Australia
Prof. Steven Moore received a PhD in biomedical engineering from the University of Sydney and subsequently took up a post-doctoral position at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City. Over the next 20 years Dr Moore received over USD$6.2 million in funding from NASA to study the effects of microgravity on neurological function, with experiments aboard the space shuttle and the Mir and International space stations. In 2016 Dr Moore returned to Australia to take up the position of Deputy Dean for Research at Central Queensland University, overseeing the research portfolio for the School of Engineering and Technology.
Prof. Ghassan Beydoun is currently based at the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology in University of Technology Sydney, where he is also deputy Head of School (Research) Systems, Management and Leadership at the University of Technology Sydney. He is also an adjunct senior research fellow at the School of Information Systems, Management and Technology at the University of New South Wales, an associate editor of the International Journal of Intelligent Information Technologies (IJIIT) and an Editorial member of the Journal of Software. He received a degree in computer science and a PhD degree in knowledge systems from the University of New South Wales in 2000. His research interests include multi agent systems applications, ontologies and their applications, and knowledge acquisition. He is currently working on a project sponsored by an Australian Research Council Discovery Grant to investigate the best uses of ontologies in developing methodologies for complex systems and another project with SES on exploring the use of ontologies for flood management decision support. He has authored more than 100 journal and conference papers in these areas over the past 15 years. His most recent publication appeared in IEEE Transactions of Software Engineering, Information Systems journal, Information and Management, International Journal of Human Computer Studies, Information Processing and management and others.
