Born in 1961, Andréas Schweizer is a graduate of the Fine Arts Institute of Geneva (Ecole supérieure des beaux-arts de Genève [HEAD]). His specialisation in engraving, photography and print techniques, have enabled him to contribute substantially to the preservation of Geneva’s longstanding heritage in the graphic-arts, whilst raising awareness of this valuable historical legacy. Within the framework of the Association for Industrial Heritage (API), based in Geneva, Switzerland – one of continental Europe’s earliest establishments of its kind – he is committed to perpetuating this legacy for future generations, linking Gutenberg’s landmark discoveries with contemporary and avant-garde information and communication technologies and, in this process, developing a means for social and cultural integration. As director of the “Maison du Patrimoine” (literally, the House of Heritage), Schweizer is regularly called upon as an expert in the conservation of industrial heritage by government authorities and diverse organisations involved in the field. In 1995, he undertook a two-month mission to India to study the last operational Monotype type-casters, in order to help develop a fully-integrated computer-driven type-casting system. Chairman of the first European Monotype University held in Geneva in 2004, Schweizer is the founder of www.letterpress.ch, an internet portal devoted to Monotype type-casting. He his also officially recognized as an expert by the Swiss Academy of Technical Sciences (the SATW’s ICT Commission). Alongside his professional activities, Schweizer cultivates perennial plants for dyeing, exploring traditional and innovative cloth-printing techniques in his private garden.

Johann Sievering is born in Geneva on May 10, 1962.
He obtained his diploma in electronics and mechanical in 1983, and then he worked in the industry until 1989. He resumed his studies at the University of Geneva, where he obtained his master's degree in 1995 and has continued in the field of artificial intelligence research and received his Ph.D. in 2001.
Throughout his academic period and after, he taught computer science in different institutions, which gave him the passion for education and has directed and led several projects of e-learning and distance learning technologies in this context. He led and still leads, the bachelors and masters. It has set up several courses in the area of computer science.
He created his company Cmyle in 2006 whose activities are computer science research and development as well as the distance education. He has developed several projects articulated around agent’s technologies and knowledge base management. He participates in and organizes projects in different contexts such as the DIP (Département de l'Instruction Publique de Genève), la DGSI (Direction Générale des Systèmes d'Information de Genève), le SEM (service Écoles-Médias), la SATW (Académie suisse des sciences Engeneering), la HEG (Haute école de gestion de Genève) et le CFPAA (Centre de Formation Professionnelle Arts Appliqués). He is a founding member of the Social-IN3 cooperative.
Today, at the same time he teaches the computer science and leads projects based on new technologies (ICTs) which enable him to maintain and enrich this valuable link between education and industry. Johann Sievering’s technological vision is a future based on mobile, autonomous, adaptive and collaborative components that can represent their own environment, but without forgetting their social and individual impacts. He directs with passion his research and his projects in this direction.
Born in Geneva in 1966, Ino Maria SIMITSEK did her school level education in Paris and Athens. In 1990, she obtained a master of science in mathematics and computer sciences from the University of Geneva. She than worked for more than ten years in the field of software development, occupying various positions from software developer to project manager. Wanting to apply her acquired experienced to the field of education she returned to university and obtained in 2002 a Master of Science in Learning and Teaching Technologies.

Gilbert Duvanel, born in 1954, in Neuchâtel, Switzerland.
Dedicated to General Systems Theory thinking applied to the relationship between human behavior and technology, he worked for the last 20 years side by side with people suffering from physical or social handicap using computers for professional or occupational activities. This implied integrating networks of heterogenous systems (Apple, MS Windows, Linux) based in various location linked by WAN and serving more than 300 people. In this particular environment he also had to put to work input devices that do not use hands. Self-taught in computing, he previoulsy studied and practiced nursing and other social work in his hometown and Geneva. He started with 3 years of Physical Chemistry studies at the University of Neuchâtel where he also worked during the late 70's in the Watch industry as a research lab manager for miniature Lithium ion batteries. In the mid 80's, a time when climate change related problems were broadly unknown of or poorly understood, he developped an Association dispatching information and awareness to the Swiss authorities. He was inspired by the work of Earth Regeneration Society, Berkeley (CA) and Computer Social Impact Research Institute, San Jose (CA) where he learned General Systems assisting the Institute founder Fred Wood III, Electrical Engineer and Sociologist retired from General Electrics and IBM.
