» Stavros Demetriadis is currently Associate Professor in the School of Informatics, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. He holds a BSc degree in Physics, MSc in Electronic Physics, and PhD in Multimedia educational technology from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. He teaches courses and conducts research in the broader area of technology-enhanced learning with emphasis on Computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL), Adaptive hypermedia systems for learning, Educational robotics and Tangible interfaces for programming, Conversational agents, Multimedia learning, Cognitive training technologies. He has published more than 150 research papers in international scientific journals (with IF) and international/national conference proceedings with more than 1200 third party citations. He is member of the scientific committee in several top ranking international Conferences each year (such as IEEE ICALT, ECTEL, CSEDU, etc.). His supervised PhD project “Cubes Coding” was presented with awards in two international competitions (Open Education Challenge 2014 and NUMA-2014). His conference articles have received three times “Best paper” awards and one article has been highlighted as “spotlight paper” at the IEEE Transactions of Learning Technologies journal. Since 1995 he has participated in many AUTH research projects and has been project leader in some of them (such as the “Kaleidoscope NoE” AUTH team).
