Dr. Victor Lazzarini received his Ph.D. from the University of Nottingham, where he was received the Heyman scholarship for research progress and the Hallward composition prize. He leads the Sound and Digital Music Research Group in the School of Music at NUI Maynooth (Ireland). His interests include musical signal processing and sound synthesis, computer music languages, and electroacoustic and instrumental composition.

Dr. Marcelo S. Pimenta received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Université Toulouse 1 in 1997. He is an associate professor in the Institute of Informatics (INF) at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), Porto Alegre. His research interests include adaptive interfaces, networked music, ubiquitous music, synergistic modeling, human aspects of software development, user-centered software engineering, and new forms of governance and the delivery of public services with the support of information technologies.
