Jerome Darmont received his Ph.D. degree in computer science from the University of Clermont-Ferrand II, France in 1999. He has been an associate professor at the University of Lyon 2, France since then, and the head of the Decision Support Databases research group within the ERIC laboratory since 2000. His current research interests mainly relate to the evaluation and optimization of database management systems and data warehouses (benchmarking, auto-administration, optimization techniques...), but also include XML and complex data warehousing and mining and medical or health-related applications. Omar Boussaid is an associate professor in computer science at the School of Economics and Management of the University of Lyon 2, France. He received his Ph.D. degree in computer science from the University of Lyon 1, France in 1988. Since 1995, he is the director of the Master Computer Science Engineering for Decision and Economic Evaluation of the University of Lyon 2. He is a member of the Decision Support Databases research group within the ERIC Laboratory. His main research subjects are data warehousing, multidimensional databases and OLAP. His current research concerns complex data warehousing, XML warehousing, data mining-based multidimensional modelling, OLAP and data mining combining and mining metadata in RDF form.
