Biography

Weigang Wang studied mathematics and information system engineering during his early university years. He received his PhD in computer science from the University of Liverpool. Before joined Manchester, he worked as research scientist at the German Research Centre for Information Technology (GMD). He was GMD site project manager for the 5 million Euro EU EXTERNAL project, focusing on information system support for virtual enterprises. His main research interest is cooperative hypermedia, which deals with all aspects of how hypermedia technologies can be used to support sharing and coordination of work between multiple users that wish to create information spaces reflecting the ideas of a community. He has designed and developed several cooperative hypermedia systems and he has served as the PC cooperative hypermedia theme chair for ACM Hypertext 2005. He was chair of the first international workshop on Computational Hypermedia and is the co-chair of the international workshop on "Web Science: Collaboration and Collective Intelligence" to be held jointly with ACM Hypertext'08. His work has appeared in some of the major journals in his field, including, ACM Transaction on Information System, Information Processing and Management, Computer Supported Collaborative Work (CSCW), International Journal of Human Computer Studies, Expert Systems with Applications, and Journal of Network and Computer Applications. According to Google Scholar, top five of his publications have been cited by 62, 54, 39, 30, 30 times by the end of 2007.

Research Interests

Dr Wang investigates web-based collaborative hypermedia systems and their underlying methodologies and frameworks for meeting support, decision support, flexible process support, project management, and collaborative learning. He also researches into new way of working and learning enabled by or co-evolved with such emerging web technologies, especially the ones combining AJAX and Semantic Web, which provide not only semantic-rich interactive knowledge structures, but also intelligent computational support.

Additional Information

Dr. Wang teaches Distributed Systems and Internet Technology, and Web Technology and Practice II at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. His research students work on flexible process support, meeting support, decision support, common ground and trust building related topics.
