Welcome to my web site!
My name is Vangelis Banos and I am an Information & Communication Systems Engineer, Msc. I am focused on: software engineering, digital libraries, metadata and aggregators, web archiving, digital preservation, and search engines.
I am living in Thessaloniki, Greece but I work with interesting people all over Europe. Below, you can see a list of the most interesting things that I’m working on right now.
I am leading BlogForever, a collaborative FP7 research project. Its key objective is to develop robust digital preservation, management and dissemination facilities for weblogs.
I am developing oaipmh.com, a web application which enables validation and data extraction from OAI-PMH enabled digital libraries.
ArchiveReady.com is an online tool which determines if your website will be archived correctly by web archives.
One of my most important projects is openarchives.gr, the first greek digital libraries search engine.
UltraCl@rity is a search engine indexing the full text of all Greek Government public documents, published online through the “Cl@rity” open gov data project.
