Biography:

Luis Orozco Barbosa is a Professor at the Department of Computer Engineering at Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha (Spain) and the Director of the Albacete Research Institute of Informatics, a Regional Centre of Excellence. Dr. Orozco has conducted numerous cooperation projects. From 2000 to 2002, he served as Technical Advisor for the Colombian Government under the Connectivity Agenda, an initiative partially supported by the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) aiming to bring Internet connectivity to all sectors of the Andean population. During 2007 and 2008, Dr. Orozco led a project supported by the Spanish Agency for the International Cooperation in collaboration with the Universidad de Magallanes, Punta arenas, Chile dealing with the use of novel mobile computer and communications technologies as applied to the treatment of people in risk due to post-traumatic stress.

Dr. Orozco has been invited to deliver various talks and keynote speeches. In 2008, he was invited by the Centre for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society, University of Berkeley, U.S.A. to deliver a talk on the role of research institutes in the regional development. In 2004, he organized a workshop on regional development sponsored by the ERISA network, an initiative supported under the 6th Framework Programme bringing together researchers and decision makers to exchange experiences on the role of research centers in the regional development. Dr. Orozco has been recently involved in the LAEMI initiative launched by the LANIA (Mexico) and supported by the CONACyT. He has also organized various scientific conferences and has served as editor of various journal issues.
