We are pleased to announce our keynote speakers, Drs. Yannis Dimitriadis and Weiming Shen.

Dr. Yannis Dimitriadis is Full Professor of Telematics Engineering and ex Dean of the Doctoral School, University of Valladolid, Spain. He is also the coordinator of the GSIC/EMIC research group, an inter-disciplinary group, integrating over 20 researchers and practitioners from the field of Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) and Pedagogy. His recent research work has focused on human-centered approaches for technology-enhanced learning (TEL), learning analytics and smart learning environments, alignment of learning design and learning analytics, design patterns, conceptual and technological support to the orchestration of computer-supported collaborative learning processes, active pedagogies at scale, and across-spaces (Web, 3D worlds and augmented reality) learning. He has participated in more than 50 competitive research projects on TEL, co-authored more than 80 journal papers and 200 conference papers, and organized several workshops and symposia, such as LAK 2021 and LAK 2022 workshops on Human-Centered Learning Analytics, ECTEL 2019 workshop on Hybrid Learning Spaces, CSCL 2015 invited symposium on computer science challenges in CSCL, or ICLS 2012 workshop on classroom orchestration. Dr. Dimitriadis is a senior member of IEEE, and member of ISLS and Solar, and spent his most recent sabbatical year (2017-2018) at Berkeley, University of Edinburgh, and EPFL.

Dr. Weiming Shen, NRC Principal Research Officer, IEEE & EIC Fellow, is an internationally renowned leader in collaborative intelligent systems. He has been a major source of leadership, influence and impact through key new ideas, concepts and techniques in collaborative engineering design, intelligent manufacturing, and intelligent building. His recent significant impacts are demonstrated through the development and implementation of intelligent building technologies at 30+ federal government buildings. He has received many prestigious awards at the national and international levels. He has served as Editor-in-Chief and Associate Editor of over 10 international journals and as Chair/Co-Chair of 20+ international conferences.
