This page describes the team behind TeamWeaver
Founders & Architects
Hans-Jörg Happel is a researcher at the FZI Research Center for Information Technologies at the University of Karlsruhe (TH). He is involved in several projects dealing with knowledge management in engineering domains, esp. software engineering. Hans-Jörg has an interdisciplinary background in Information Systems, Software Engineering and Organizational Theory. His research interests are in the intersection of software engineering, knowledge management, information retrieval, social software and semantic technologies. Hans-Jörg served as a reviewer, organizer and moderator for several scientific and industry related events in these areas.
Walid Maalej is a senior researcher at TUM. His interests include social software engineering, agile development, context-aware engineering infrastructures and ontology-based knowledge management. In the EU-funded project TEAM, he was leading the knowledge contextualization and personalization team. Walid successfully co-organized several scientific and industrial workshops and conferences on software engineering, knowledge management, integration and traceability and agile methods.
Tim Romberg was among the initiators of the WAVES research project at FZI, part of the German Science Ministry's "Software Engineering 2006" initiative. He is currently an independent consultant on Enterprise 2.0 solutions and living in Brussels. Ask Tim if you are interested in Wiquila, a Rich Wiki Client, or about integrating structured Enterprise Data with Wikis or the "emergent" structures of the Social Web.
