Alexander Samarin wrote his first software program in the year 1973. He obtained a PhD (in computer graphics) in the year 1986. He has worked for a variety of international clients in Switzerland, UK, France, Australia and Africa. He specialises in architecture, implementation and evolution of enterprise-wide solutions with the holistic use of enterprise architecture, business architecture, BPM, SOA, ECM, IT governance and IT strategy.
In October 2009 he published a book “Improving Enterprise Business Process Management Systems”.
Since August 2013 he specialised as an architect and practitioner for implementation of complex digital systems in smart cities. His presentation will discuss how to apply a systems approach to digital healthcare and smart cities with several modern technologies (enterprise architecture, digital, microservices, blockchain, explicit coordination, etc.) to achieve some desired emergent characteristics (e.g. a high level of trustworthiness) of complex digital systems.
He is a mentor and member of "Investment comitee" of LAUNCHub, a startup accelerator program backed up by European Investment Fund and a member of Mensa Bulgaria and a rally driver.

Ralf is Director of the Ubiquitous Computing Laboratory at HTWG where the main research lines are: Biomedical Computing, Mobile Computing, Smart Home & Living and Automotive Computing. He is contributor to several roadmaps like the cluster initiative for Smart Home & Living. He is elected Topic Group Leader of the working group on 'Modularity' in the Smart Home & Living cluster. As coordinator and principal researcher he launched several telemedicine projects on integrated eHealth and eCare services for residential infrastructures. He has given Lectures at the IEEE EMBS Summer School on Emerging Technologies and Applications in Telemedicine, in the Smart Healthcare Master at the University of Girona or for example at the doctoral course of the University of Seville. Furthermore, Ralf pushed projects on intelligent middleware and advanced services also in automotive environments and multi media service delivery as well as on embedded real time system development.
Ralf is teaching in three different degrees at HTWG, he is author and co-author of several publications and books, reviewer for EU programs and for research projects, coordinator of several ERASMUS agreements and other bilateral research and PhD-cooperation agreements on international level. Ralf severed as Chair, Steering and Program Committee member, Session organizer, Session chair and member of the review team for many national and international conferences and workshops as well as professor for international summer schools.
Kouri is a board member and the secretary of the Finnish Society for Telemedicine & eHealth. The society is the second oldest organisation in its field, acting as an influential forerunner in telemedicine and eHealth. Kouri represents the society in ISfTeH. Kouri’s appointment to ISfTeH’s board is a notable recognition of Finnish competence. Above all, it is notable because Kouri is the first board member with a nursing background. Nursing is a central segment of health care but it has not been represented at this level before. The appointment sufficiently supports the role of Finnish health care in international eHealth duties because Kouri also acts as an invited expert in the eHealth Strategic Advisory Board of the International Council of Nurses (ICN).
