>> Short bio

Agustin C. Caminero-Herraez (M'10) is Associate Professor (Profesor Titular de Universidad) at the Control and Communication Systems Department in the Spanish University for Distance Education (Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia, UNED), Madrid (Spain). He is teacher and coordinator of different official degree and postdegree courses and permanent education courses on Big Data, cloud computing, databases, and multimedia at UNED. He is also coordinator of the official program on "Computing systems and networks administration" (Administración de Sistemas Informáticos en Red, ASIR), part of the agreement between UNED and Gredos San Diego Cooperativa (link).

He received his M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science in 2004 and 2009 respectively, both from the University of Castilla-La Mancha (UCLM), Albacete (Spain). During his Ph. D. candidature, he conducted research stays at The University of Melbourne (Australia) and The University of Cardiff (UK). After the completion of his Ph. D., he was awarded with a Post-doctoral grant at Complutense University, Madrid (Spain). Finally, he joined UNED in 2009 as Teacher Assistant, where he has been promoted until his current position.

Regarding his teaching activity, he has taught various courses in official degrees and postdegrees at UCLM and UNED. At UNED, he has mainly focused on Big Data, cloud computing, networks, databases, and multimedia, all of them with the methodology of distance learning. In addition, he has also directed more than 10 Master Degree Final Projects (Trabajo Final de Máster, TFM) and Bachelor Degree Final Projects (Proyecto Final de Carrera, PFC, or Proyecto Final de Grado, PFG), in addition to directing and participating in several projects of teaching innovation, summer courses and permanent training in UNED. He has directed TFMs in UCLM, where he has also taught face-to-face classes in Computer Engineering and Industrial Engineering.

Regarding researching, his interests include Learning Analytics, Big Data, Cloud Computing, quality of service support in parallel distributed computing systems, and development of infrastructures for e-learning. He has participated in more than 15 R & D projects financed in public calls (regional, national and international), some of them with special relevance to companies and / or administrations of international scope. Among the nationals, it is worth mentioning the CONSOLIDER-Ingenio 2010 Project of the Ministry, which has already been finalized. In addition, he directs a research project financed by UNED and Banco Santander. Moreover, he has co-authored more than 35 publications in international journals and conferences on his topics of interest, most of them indexed in impact lists such as JCR, CORE (ERA), DBLP and IEEE Explorer. He has organized several research events, among others the Learning Analytics Summer Institute (LASI) Local Madrid in 2014 and 2017. He is also a participant in the Spanish Network of Learning Analytics (SNOLA). He is Senior Member of IEEE.
