Dr. Owen Conlan

Research Assistant Professor (Computer Science)

Dr. Owen Conlan, B.A., B.A.I., Ph.D. graduated from Trinity College, Dublin in 1999 with an undergraduate degree in Computer Engineering. Owen is a Research Lecturer with the Knowledge and Data Engineering Group (KDEG) in TCD and submitted his doctoral thesis in 2004, with it being conferred in early 2005. Owen´s primary research is in investigating the practical application of learning theory to Adaptive Hypermedia Systems (AHS) towards the production of pedagogically sound personalised learning experiences. His research interests also include strategies for adaptation, visualisation of adaptation and applying adaptive techniques to the area of ubiquitous computing. His main research topics are the adaptive runtime assembly of learning concepts and content based on learner preferences and the adaptive rendering of content based on the context in which the learning occurs. This work was awarded the Best Student Paper award at the Second International Conference on Adaptive Hypermedia and Adaptive Web-Based Systems (AH2002) in May 2002 and has contributed to over forty publications. Owen has been involved in several successful collaborative research projects including the European Commission funded EASEL (2000 - 2003), iClass (2004-2008) and ELEKTRA (2006-2008) projects; the Irish HEA funded M-Zones (2002-2006) project and the Enterprise Ireland funded ADAPT (2005-2007) project. His most cited publications include -
