Mihai Lupu obtained his PhD degree in 2008 under the Singapore—MIT Alliance at the National University of Singapore, where he researched data retrieval in peer-to-peer networks. He is continuing his research in the area of information retrieval, with an emphasis on patent retrieval, cross-lingual retrieval and chemical structure retrieval evaluation. Previously, he organised the Chemical IR Evaluation campaign and the Patent Information Retrieval workshop series. Now at the TU Wien he has expanded his research interest into areas such as credibility of IR, eHealth, and multimodal search.
Katja Mayer (PhD, University of Vienna) specialized in social studies of science and worked as a consultant, science communication officer and university lecturer. She has been interested in the historical and social implications of information retrieval applications. A focus of her research is on the public impact of search technologies and visualization. Her current research is devoted to data practices in computational social science in the context of the open science movement. She is associated faculty at the University of Vienna and the Technical University Munich.
