Today Jesus Soto, a lecturer of the Pontifical University of Salamanca who regularly collaborates with our group, successfully completed his PhD dissertation. The ceremony was held in our base camp at the Polytechnic building (University of Alcala). His work was about the application of semantic technologies and mechanisms to learning object repositories, with the aim of providing flexibility and enhancing search capabilities.
It was also a perfect opportunity to meet old friends, who gathered around for the occasion. It was particularly emotive the reunion of the so-called “gangrena group” (see snapshot above), formed by previous co-workers at the Pontifical University of Salamanca. From left to right: Miguel A. Sicilia, Juan Manuel Dodero, Hector Castan and Salvador Sanchez-Alonso.
