Mark Cameron is a Research Team Leader and Project Leader with the CSIRO Information and Communication Technology Centre. He has been with CSIRO since 1991. Mark is currently leading a team developing a platform and tools to deliver situation awareness from near real-time social-media text streams. Mark has extensive experience in research and development of tools and platforms to enable automated information integration. These platforms have been used for Semantic-RFID; Maritime Situation Awareness; Ocean Observing; and Water Resource Management. Previous research areas include spatial databases, spatial information systems, spatial decision support systems, information integration and web-service composition planning. He has a PhD from the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology, Australian National University. In 1997, Mark worked on secondment with the Tasmanian Department of Environment and Land Management developing the Integration Workbench, a spatial decision support system used during negotiations for the Tasmanian Regional Forests Agreement.
