Jonathan Bowen is Professor of Computing at London South Bank University, where he heads the Centre for Applied Formal Methods. From 1995 to March 2000, Bowen was a lecturer at the Department of Computer Science, University of Reading. Previously he was a senior researcher at the Oxford University Computing Laboratory Programming Research Group where he worked under the guidance of Sir Tony Hoare, FRS. Between 1979 and 1984 he worked at Imperial College, London as a research assistant. He has been involved with the field of computing in both industry and academia since 1977. His interests include formal methods, the history of computing and on-line museums. Bowen established the Virtual Library museums pages (VLmp) in 1994, a web-based directory of on-line museums worldwide that has since been adopted by the International Council of Museums (ICOM). He was Honorary Chair at the first Museums and the Web conference in 1997 and has given presentations at each conference since then. He has guest edited two special issues of the Museums International journal concerning on-line museums and writes a regular column on museums and the Internet in the magazine New Heritage. In 2002, Bowen founded Museophile Limited (www.museophile.com), a spin-out company from London South Bank University with the aim to help museums on-line, especially in the areas of accessibility, discussion forums and collaborative e-commerce. Bowen gained the Freedom of the Worshipful Company of Information Technologists in 2001 and is a Fellow of the Royal Society for the encouragement of the Arts, Manufactures and Commerce. He holds an MA degree in Engineering Science from Oxford University.
