Biography:
Dr Iadh Ounis is currently a Reader in the School of Computing Science at the University of Glasgow. Previously, he was a Research Fellow at the National University of Singapore, and a Post Doctoral Researcher within CLIPS-IMAG at the University of Grenoble. He holds a PhD degree in Computer Science from the University Joseph Fourier, Grenoble, France and an MSc in Computer Science from ENSIMAG, National Polytechnic Institute of Grenoble. He is an active researcher in information retrieval (the science of search engines), and serves as a programme committee member of all major IR-related conferences. Over the years, he has supervised numerous PhD students and postdoctoral research assistants, and has authored over 150 refereed publications.

Dr Ounis is the principal investigator of the renowned high-performance and scalable Terrier search engine, the open source version of which has been widely used across the world by both academia and industry. Since 2006, Dr Ounis has been co-ordinating the international Blog & Microblog track initiatives within TREC (NIST, USA), which explore information seeking behaviour within the blogosphere and microblogging environments. Dr Ounis is a member of the editorial board of the Information Processing & Management journal, a member of the advisory board of the Forum for Information Retrieval Evaluation, and has chaired a number of major information retrieval-related events and initiatives such as ESSIR 2007 and ECIR 2008. He is currently the General Chair of the premier 20th ACM Conference on Information and Knowledge Management (CIKM), which will be held in Glasgow in 2011.

Research Interests:
- Web and enterprise search engines
- Large-scale information retrieval systems
- Opinion finding and results diversification
- Searching and mining within electronic health records
- Social media retrieval (blog, twitter, news, etc).
