Short biography

Electronics engineering diploma (ESEO, Angers - France), Master of Science in Electrical Engineering (Louisiana State University).

From 1991 till 1994, I was Rapporteur of a Working Group and Editor of Recommendation T.505 (Open Document Architecture) at CCITT (Comité Consultatif International Télégraphique et Téléphonique), and then contributor to many R&D projects, some relating to information management.

In 2000, I started working in the BtoB e-commerce domain. In particular I was involved in the P1004-Eurescom project (as coordinator of the prototype spécifications WG). From 2005 till 2009, I contributed to international standardization at UN/CEFACT (United Nations Centre for Trade Facilitation and E-Business), in particular as editor of the specifications of the e-business Registry.

More recently I have been the manager of several anticipation or research projects (B2B, SaaS, collaborative work, corporate social networks). I am the co-author of several scientific papers.
