Christophe CLARAMUNT

Dr Christophe Claramunt is a professor in computer science and chair of the Naval Academy Research Institute in France. He holds a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Burgundy (1998) and an 'Habilitation' degree from the University of Rouen (2001). Prof. Christophe Claramunt is currently a member of the MOTIM research group (Maritime Information MOdeling and Processing). He has been a senior lecturer at the Nottingham Trent University and a senior scientist at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne. Amongst other affiliations, he is also a visiting researcher at the Information Media Lab of the University of Hyogo, a research associate at the Centre for Planning Studies at the Laval University and a research fellow at the Joint Laboratory for Geographical Information Science at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

His research interests are as follows:
- Spatio-temporal models and theories.
- Semantic and cognitive-based GIS, e.g., modelling of navigation knowledge and landscape perception in urban spaces and built environments.
- WEB, wireless and GIS systems, from the development of location-based systems to the analysis of the WEB, when considered as a spatial and social network.
- Maritime, environmental and urban GISs.
He has widely published in the domain of GIS and serves in the editorial boards of several international GIS journals.

His teaching activities include several computer science and computing courses. I have also developed several modules connected to my research activities in the domain of GIS, remote-sensing, sustainable development, simulation and multi-agent modelling. His main training activities are oriented to the engineering degree of the Naval Academy cadets and several master programs.
