Short CV:

Johann Eder is full professor for Information and Communication Systems in the Department of Informatics-Systems of the Alpen-Adria Universität Klagenfurt, Austria. From 2005-2013 he served as Vice President of the Austrian Science Funds (FWF).  He held positions at the Universities of Linz, Hamburg and Vienna and was visiting scholar at AT&T Shannon Labs, NJ.

The research interests of Johann Eder are databases, information systems and data management for medical research. A particular focus of his work is the evolution of information systems and the modelling and management of temporal information and temporal constraints. Another focus is the application of Information technology for medical research from information systems for biobanking, information privacy to modelling of biological processes.

He successfully directed numerous competitively funded research projects on workflow management systems, temporal data warehousing, process modelling with temporal constraints, application interoperability and evolution, information systems modelling, information systems for medical research, etc.

Johann Eder has contributed to workflow systems and business process management for 2 decades, in particular in the area of workflow systems languages and architectures, exception handling, time management, and data management. His research led to the development of the commercial workflow management systems altavistaWorks and  @enterprise.

Johann Eder authored one book, edited 22 books, proceedings, special issues of journals and published more than 160 papers in international journals and conference proceedings. See dbpl, google scholar and the research database of AAU for lists of publications.

He served in numerous program committees for international and acted as general chair / PC chair for CAiSE, ADBIS, BPM, CoopIS, and  DAWAK conferences. He is editor and referee for international journals and conferences (including ACM TODS, ACM TOIS, IEEE TKDE, IEEE Transactions on Services Computing TSCSI, Information Systems, Artificial Intelligence Review, Dat and Knowledge Engineering, Computer Journal, JCSE, JUCS, DSS, JSS, etc.).

Johann Eder received the degrees of Diplom-Ingenieur and Doctor of technical sciences from the University Linz, Austria. From 1985 till 1990 he was assistant professor at the University Klagenfurt. In 1990 he was visiting professor at the University of Hamburg, Germany. From 1990-1991 he was associate professor (tenured) at the University of Vienna, Austria. From 1991-2005 he was full professor for information and communication systems at University Klagenfurt and he chaired the Department of Informatics-Systems from 1994- 2005, and 2009-2013. From 2005 to 2007 he was full professor for informatics (workflow) at the University of Vienna. In 1998 he was visiting scholar with AT&T Research Shannon Labs, NJ, USA.
