Pablo Cesar leads Distributed and Interactive Systems group (http://www.dis.cwi.nl) at CWI (The National Research Institute for Mathematics and Computer Science in the Netherlands). Pablo's research focuses on modelling and controlling complex collections of media objects (including real-time media and sensor data) that are distributed in time and space. His fundamental interest is in understanding how different customisations of such collections affect the user experience. Pablo is the PI of Public Private Partnership projects with Xinhuanet and ByBorre, and very successful EU-funded projects like 2-IMMERSE, REVERIE and Vconect. He has (co)-authored over 100 articles. He is member of the editorial board of, among others, ACM Transactions on Multimedia (TOMM). Pablo has given tutorials about multimedia systems in prestigious conferences such as ACM Multimedia, CHI, and the WWW conference. He acted as an invited expert at the European Commission’s Future Media Internet Architecture Think Tank and participates in standardisation activities at MPEG (point-cloud compression) and ITU (QoE for multi-party tele-meetings).
