Jean Vanderdonckt is Full Professor of Computer Science at the Université catholique de Louvain (UCL) in Belgium, where he is director of the Louvain Interaction Laboratory. With his team, he is investigating the engineering of computer-based systems from the user interface point of view, by developing models, methods, and tools to support the whole development life cycle of user interfaces with the ultimate goal of usability as a major quality factor. His research interests include human-computer interaction, software engineering, information systems, model-driven engineering, and the World Wide Web. He is ACM Distinguished Speaker, ACM Distinguished Scientist, IEEE Senior Member. He is Associate Editor of ACM TiiS, KAIS, AHCI, Interacting with Computers, UAHCI and co-editor-in-chief of Springer’s Human-Computer Interaction Series and Briefs.
