Dr. Tsvi Kuflik is a Lecturer in the Management Information Systems Department at the University of Haifa. Previously he was a researcher at the scientific and technological research institution in Trento Italy. Prior to that, in parallel with being a PhD. Student, Tsvi coordinated an industrial consortium that developed and implemented software reuse methodology. In addition he worked and consulted in several industrial companies, in areas of personalization and also software quality assurance. Tsvi has 20 years of software development experience in various positions (software development and software development management, software and systems engineering, mainly for real-time systems in various domains). Dr. Kuflik received his Ph.D. in Information Systems from the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in 2004. As a researcher at the center for scientific and technological research in Trento, he worked on user modeling in active museums, research he continued at the University of Haifa, while leading the PIL research project in the framework of the collaboration of the University of Haifa and ITC/irst, leading a research group focusing on supporting museum visitors. Tsvi has been the organizer and Chair of an international conference held this summer in Israel - NGITS 2006, co-organizer of a workshops on Ubiquitous User Modeling co-located with ECAI 2006 and UM 2007, and personalization in cultural heritage, co-located with UM 2007, and a member in the program committee of numerous national and international conferences.
