Nadine Alameh is leaving the OGC staff on
April 30, 2014 - today - to take on a new and exciting opportunity.
We wish her great success and want to thank her for her years of
contributions on OGC staff.
Nadine joined the OGC staff in May 2010 and
was promoted to Executive Director of OGC's Interoperability Program in 2012.
During her time with OGC staff, she led the OWS-9 Testbed, planning for
OGC Testbed 10, and the GEOSS Architecture Implementation Pilot, phase 4.
She led several OGC pilots for the Aviation industry. Prior
to leading initiatives she was an architect in previous OGC testbeds, including
testbeds focused on Aviation and Geo-Decision Support Services. It's fair
to say that the aviation community in particular has benefited greatly from her
leadership in the OGC Interoperability Program.
Prior to joining OGC staff, Nadine was a
contributor to many geospatial standards activities in OGC and elsewhere.
Her PhD dissertation at MIT in 2001 addressed "Scalable and
Extensible Infrastructures for Distributing Interoperable Geographic
Information Services on the Internet".
Nadine is leaving the OGC staff to take a
position of leadership with a very active OGC member. We expect that we
will see Nadine at future OGC activities and we wish her godspeed with her new
