Sabrina Scherer

Sabrina Scherer is researcher at the University of Koblenz-Landau. After her graduation in Computer Science at Saarland University in 2004, she worked as a software engineer. Since June 2007, she joins the research group E-Government, thereby focusing on research in e-participation. In OCOPOMO, she brought in her experience in the design of a participation platform for policy impact analysis. She was also responsible for the conceptualisation, design and implementation of the Consistent Conceptual Description (CCD) tool, which supports the evidence-based analysis and conceptualisation of policies.

Maria Wimmer

Maria A. Wimmer is Full Professor in E-Government at the University of Koblenz-Landau and chairs the research group E-Government at the Institute for Information Systems Research. She holds a Doctor in applied Computer Sciences from Johannes Kepler University in Linz, Austria. After a research fellowship on designing safety-critical systems in Italy, she turned her focus onto ICT in the public sector. She is principal investigator of various research projects and coordinated the OCOPOMO project, where she brought in the overall policy process and the traceability feature besides supporting complex policy modelling with conceptual modelling. From 2004 till 2005, she worked in the ICT operative unit of the Federall Chancellery in Austria (Vienna). Her thematic areas were interoperability, digital signatures of administrations, education concept for e-government for public servants, etc. Since November 2005, Maria A. Wimmer is Professor for eGovernment and chair of the research group eGovernment at the Institute for Information Systems (IS) research at University of Koblenz-Landau, Germany.

Scott Moss

Scott Moss was Professor of Social Simulation and the founding director of the Centre for Policy Modelling in Manchester UK. He is currently writing a book about the social norms reinforcing the general failure of economic and other social modelling to connect with reality either in model design or in forecasting events or the impacts of social policies. More importantly, the book is intended to provide a roadmap for useful social modelling. The article for which this biographical note is written contains the basic ideas underlying that roadmap. Since Scott is also devoting his time in retirement to sailing, farming and travelling, it may be some time before his book is published. Anyone who wants to see the work in progress is welcome to write to him requesting an electronic copy.

Daniele Pinotti

Daniele Pinotti received his Master's degree in Physics in 2011 at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia. For his thesis project, he collaborated in the analysis of how silicon absorption properties could be enhanced by depositing metallic nanoparticles, for photovoltaic applications. Soon after, he started his career at RE:Lab as Computer Scientist to work on research projects in the policy modelling domain. From 2012 to 2014 he is also a Research Fellow at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, focusing on driver modelling, driver distraction/intention and smart mobility, in particular on Electrical Vehicles.
