Frédéric Hubert is a professor in geoinformatics for the Department of geomatics sciences at Laval University in Québec (Canada). He is also member of Centre de Recherche en Géomatique (CRG). Frédéric made a postdoctoral stage in geoinformatics for the CRG from December 2003 to December 2006. He obtained his Ph.D. in Computer Science at the Caen University (France), realized at the COGIT laboratory from the Institut Géographique National (IGN-France) in 2003. In 1998 and 1999, he was a member (as student) of the VERSO project at INRIA-Rocquencourt. He received his degrees of license in computer science, master in computer science and DEA in artificial intelligence and algorithmics from Caen University (France) in 1997, 1998 and 1999, respectively.

Research interests

My research interests are mainly concentrated on :

  • user needs specification in Geomatics,
  • geospatial business intelligence (GeoBI) and self-service,
  • geospatial multimodal interactions,
  • mobile augmented reality,
