About me
Web 1.0, 2.0, 3.0


Writing means a lot to me….I do it for leisure when blogging or chatting with friends, and I also do it professionally. In fact, I have been trained to write professionally in the most unforgiving environment: academic publishing. When I started writing academic papers for conferences, journals, and other related events, I had to learn how to communicate my ideas and findings in a communal and novel manner that allow the reader to comprehend the idea and elaborate on it….it is not as easy at it may sounds; coping with constructive criticism matters a lot as does the quality and topic of your writing: a blurb about how to set up an automatic synchronization process between your PDA and home desktop PC is hardly compelling or novel.

So, 13 years since I published my very first academic paper, here I am: 72 publications in internationally renowned conferences, workshops, symposia, journals and other related events, and 2 edited books: an edited volume on semantic interoperability for information systems integration, and an edited volume on advanced knowledge technologies.

A full list of all of my publications is a impractical to list in a site like this, but here's a pointer to Southampton ePrints archive which is up-to-date:

List of publications

I am also using writing to communicate the results of my consultancy and services. When I do not deliver or being involved in producing software code; writings, like a due diligence report, is the main deliverable. But these are client specific artefacts and cannot be disclosed publicly.

I do, however, include pointers to some of my favourite publications with regards to relevant technology sections on this site.
