Marc Pallot, Docteur, Chercheur associé

Marc PALLOT is a scientist associate to the Centre for Concurrent Enterprise - Nottingham University Business School and to the Presence & Innovation Lab at Arts & Métiers ParisTech Angers/Laval, acting as senior research fellow within EU ICT research projects. Since 98, He teaches Concurrent Engineering and Collaborative Innovation at ISTIA Innovation, University of Angers, and ENSAM Engineering school in Laval. Since 2011, he also teaches "User Driven Innovation" at ENSAM Angers. Marc was recently member of the AxIS Team at INRIA Sophia Antipolis where he worked on a landscape study at the crossroads of Future Internet (IoS, IoT), Living Labs and Smart Cities. He has an extensive multi-disciplinary experience in the fields of Design, User Experience, eCollaboration (CSCW, wiki, online community, group blogging, shared workspace), Living Lab (User Co-Creation in R&D within Open Innovation environments), Business Process Improvement, Knowledge Sharing, Collaborative Innovation, Project Management, e-Business & e-Work, Concurrent Engineering (CE), System Engineering (SE) and CAD/CAM/PDM/PLM. He has designed, with two colleagues (Rudolf Ruland and Stanislav Traykov), the Collaborative Web Environment (CWE) of the AMI@Work Communities constituted of shared workspace (BSCW), wiki (MediaWiki) and blogging (Drupal) technologies. He was co-chair of the Collaboration@Work community of the AMI@Work initiative. His current research interests include User Co-creation, Experiential Design, User Experience, Open Innovation, and Living Lab. He previously focused on Collaborative Web Environments with a specific emphasis on Collaboration Barriers, Collaborative Distance and Interoperable Collaboration Services. Another long-term fascinating research interest is about "Serendipity Engine" where he has created the People-Concepts Networking (PCN) approach for connecting people and their content objects; he conducted several experimentations through the use of various CONEX software prototypes (developed by Alex Alishevskikh); this work is also related to other topics such as: concept-mapping, topic maps, knowledge connection, on-line socio-technical networking and on-line communities. He is regularly involved in European research projects and has published numbers of papers and is co-author of several books and chapters. He is also regularly acting as evaluator of project proposals and project reviewer within the European Commission research framework programs. He has 17 years industrial experience (1978-1995) within R&D and product marketing & engineering in various sectors such as Telecom, Avionics, Defense, Engineering and CAD/CAM/PDM. He was formerly Vice-President for Product Marketing & Engineering at Win Technology, a software house specialised in Workflow and Product Data Management. He is co-founder and co-organiser of the annual ICE international conference since 1994 and member of other conference committees. He is member of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), IEEE Computer Society (IEEE CS) and Information Resources Management Association (IRMA) and was guest editor for the CWE special issues of the International Journal on eCollaboration (IJeC). He was also member of standardisation technical committees ICOM ICS and CMIS at OASIS: Advancing open standard for the information society.
