Ralf Hartmut Güting has been a full professor in Computer Science at the University of Hagen, Germany, since 1989. He received his Diploma and Dr. rer. nat. degrees from the University of Dortmund in 1980 and 1983, respectively, and became a professor at that university in 1987. From 1981 until 1984 his main research area was Computational Geometry. After a one-year stay at the IBM Almaden Research Center in 1985, extensible and spatial database systems became his major research interests; more recently, also spatio-temporal or moving objects databases. He is a Senior Associate Editor of the ACM Transactions on Spatial Algorithms and Systems and an Editor of GeoInformatica. He has previously served as an Associate Editor of the ACM Transactions on Database Systems and as an Editor of the VLDB Journal. He has published two German text books on data structures and algorithms and on compilers, respectively, and an English text book on moving objects databases, as well as around eighty journal and conference articles. His group has built prototypes of extensible and spatio-temporal database systems, the Gral system and the SECONDO system.
