Dr. Pascal Molli graduated from Nancy University (France) and received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Nancy University in 1996. Since 1997, he is Associate Professor at University of Nancy. He participated in the creation of the INRIA ECOO (Environments for Cooperation) project in 1998. He is currently vice-head of the INRIA project ECOO. Dr. Molli has mainly worked on collaborative distributed systems and focused on problems of consistency of shared data in collaborative environments and awareness models for collaborative editing. He participated to several research projects such as Libresource, Xwiki-concerto and Qualipso. His research topic is mainly Computer Supported Cooperative Work, P2P and distributed systems and collaborative knowledge building. His current research topcs are : * Algorithms for distributed collaborative systems : consistency criteria for collaborative systems and algorithms to enforce consistency o Logoot : a Scalable Optimistic Replication Algorithm for Collaborative Editing on P2P? Networks. Stéphane Weiss, Pascal Urso and Pascal Molli . In ICDCS , Montreal, Quebec, Canada , June 2009. o Data Consistency for P2P Collaborative Editing.
