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, digital preservation, web archiving and related research. 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 a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Informatics of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. My research focuses on web data management, web content aggregation & analysis, blogs & the social web.
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.
