Bashar Nuseibeh is a Professor of Computing at The Open University (Director of Research, 2002-2008), and a Professor of Software Engineering and Chief Scientist at Lero – the Irish Software Engineering Research Centre. His research interests encompass the multi-perspective software development of complex, typically heterogeneous, composite systems. This kind of development is characterised by the existence of multiple development participants, who hold multiple (often inconsistent) views on a problem or solution domain, and who may be express these views using different representation schemes and develop them using different development strategies.
Yvonne Rogers is a professor of Human-Computer Interaction in the Computing Department at the Open University and directs the Pervasive Interaction Lab. She is also a visiting professor of Informatics at Indiana University (where she was from 2003-2006). Yvonne’s research is concerned with the human aspects of ubiquitous, pervasive and tangible computing. She is interested in both theory and practice: understanding how everyday, learning and work activities can be augmented and the intellect extended through interactive technologies.
Arosha Bandara is a Lecturer in Computing at The Open University, an appointment he has held since October 2006. His research focuses on the area of self-managing (adaptive) systems, with a particular emphasis on the security and management challenges faced when building and deploying such systems. My approach is to combine rigorous formal techniques with concrete implementations and applications of those techniques to practical problems associated with building and maintaining self-managing systems.

Blaine Price is a Senior Lecturer at the Open University. His research interests span the areas of Privacy, Data Protection and IT Law, aiming to enable people to more fully engage in networked interactions with businesses, public institutions, and other individuals. Some people avoid such interactions, over-estimating the risks to their privacy. Conversely, others engage in such interactions after making false assumptions about the security of their information.
Clara Mancini is a Research Fellow in Human-Computer Interaction, at the Computing Department of The Open University, UK. Her research investigates how technology can mediate and shape new models of communication and interaction, supporting novel forms of connectedness, learning and cooperation.
One aspect of her work consists of exploring how technological contexts can convey meaning, by transforming signs, structures and patterns that underpin communication and interaction in naturalistic contexts, or by producing signs, structures and patterns that are uniquely afforded by specific technologies.
Her work is also concerned with devising and experimenting with new research methods for probing the …
