Here, you can find an overview on my professional activities including my research focus and current activities (including slides of my talks). Students may find information on my actual and past courses (including material). Also, most of my publications can be accessed through the corresponding link.
Since 2009, I am a professor for computer science at Saarland University heading the Ubiquitous Media Technology Lab, and the scientific director of the Innovative Retail Laboratory (IRL) at the German Research Center for AI (DFKI). Until then I have been a professor and the managing director at the Institute for Geoinformatics (ifgi) at the University of Münster (former web page). My main research interests are Mobile and Ubiquitous Spatial Assistance Systems, combining the research fields of Intelligent User Interfaces, User Modeling, Cognitive Sciences, and Ubiquitous Computing. Short Bios in English and German as well as printable images are available.
Since 2009 Antonio Krüger is a Globus-endowed professor for Computer Science in Retail and the scientific director of the Innovative Retail Laboratory at the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI GmbH). He is an internationally renowned expert on Man-Machine-Interaction and Artificial Intelligence. He has established the Mediainformatics study programme at the Saarland University in 2010 and directs it to this day. Antonio is a co-founder of the Saarbrücken-based technology company Eyeled GmbH, which focuses on the development of mobile and ubiquitous information systems. Many of his research findings have found their way into applications in retail and other industrial domains. He holds several high tech patents in the area of Human Computer Interaction. From 2004 to 2009 he was a professor of computer science and geoinformatics at the University of Münster and acted as the managing director of the institute for geoinformatics. He studied Computer Science and Economics at Saarland University and finished his Ph.D in 1999 as a member of the Saarbrücken graduate school of “Cognitive Science”. Antonio has published more than 200 scientific articles and papers in internationally recognized journals and conferences and is member of several steering committees, editorial boards and scientific advisory committees.
