Short Bio

   Birgit Pröll studied computer science at the Johannes Kepler University (JKU)
   Linz, Austria, where she obtained her MSc in 2001. Since 1991, she has
   been employed with FAW (Institute for Applied Knowledge Processing) at JKU.
   She has been engaged in industrial and research projects in the areas of
   expert systems, Web based-information systems and Web information
   extraction. From 1995 to 2000, she had managed the development of the
   Web-based tourism information systems TIS@WEB and TIScover at FAW.
   In 2003, she received her habilitation (venia docendi) for applied computer
   science from the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Engineering of JKU. Her
   current research interests and fields of teaching comprise Web information
   retrieval, Web information extraction, Web engineering, Web sciences, and
   e-commerce.
