Simon Polovina

Dr. Simon Polovina engages in roles that draw upon his expertise in Enterprise Architecture and Conceptual Structures (CS), which harmonises the human conceptual approach to problem solving with the formal structures that computer applications need to bring their productivity to bear. Simon is a Reader in Business Computing at Sheffield Hallam University, UK. He was a Principal Investigator for the recently completed European Commission 7th Framework Programme project CUBIST (“Combining and Unifying Business Intelligence with Semantic Technologies”), where he applied CS and co-managed the project. Simon is the Enterprise Architect for CENTRIC (Centre of excellence in Terrorism, Resilience, Intelligence and Organised Crime Research). He is Co-Chairman of the Global University Alliance that partners with the LEAD (Leading Enterprise Architecture Development) practitioner community. Simon is a Steering Group Member of the University's CCRC (Computing and Communications Research Centre) and co-leads the CCRC's Conceptual Structures Research Group. His PhD was awarded in 1994 by the Department of Computer Science, Loughborough University, UK. Simon has many years of industrial experience in accounting and information and communication technologies (ICT), and has published widely with over 90 learned publications to date. Simon was the General Chair for the 15th International Conference on Conceptual Structures (ICCS 2007): "Knowledge Architectures for Smart Applications" and Program Chair for the 19th International Conference on Conceptual Structures (ICCS 2011): "Conceptual Structures for Discovering Knowledge". Simon’s interests include the use of Smart Applications and how they can detect novel or unusual transactions that would otherwise remain as lost business opportunities or represent illicit business or criminal activity. He has expertise in Enterprise Architecture, Service Oriented Architecture, Business Process Management, SAP technologies, Web technologies, Java, Object-oriented Analysis and Design, Conceptual Modelling of organisations as Multi-agent Systems, and in Interaction Design.
