Fjodor Ruzic is a doctor (PhD) in information sciences at the University of Zagreb. He is currently active at the Institute for Informatics as a consultant/lecturer in new media/interactive multimedia systems, information communications systems, and information services. He has studied information sciences since 1985 and is a member of many national and international bodies relating to telecommunications systems integrity, information resources management, and multimedia systems environments. He has worked on both the research and implementation sides of networked databases, educational material, and digital media, from distributed systems development through cloud computing. He has published over 130 scientific and research papers in various international journals and is an author of several books dealing with graphical user interfaces, multimedia, and the Internet. He has done additional work on Web 4.x real-world deployment, especially related to contextual and cognitive Web development. He also promotes open source and open norms, as well as Creative Commons, in the information technology community.

With his expertise in the technical field, he has expanded his research area to include information technology legislation, especially in privacy/data protection, electronic signatures, and electronic documents. His efforts in this area resulted in the preparation of the national laws on electronic signatures and electronic documents, where he was involved in establishing national certification authority.

He is an active member of the program and editorial boards of various scientific journals including the Journal of Information Technology Education: Research; Information Resources Management Journal; the International Journal of Information Systems in the Service Sector; and the Journal of Cloud Computing. He also actively participates in the activities of several international associations, including the Data Processing Management Association, Informing Science Institute, the International Telecommunications Society, and the World Teleport Association. He also participated as a team member of ATAS--UNCSTD in the Information Technology and Development group. In the context of e-governance development, he participated in the preparation of the recommendation on e-democracy within the Council of Europe and especially in defining e-governance principles.

Through his work on the legal framework for information society development, he is also active in expanding new forms of literacy needed for the information society--especially in electronic government activities working as an ECDL coordinator and a licensed ECDL examiner. His recent research activities are in the fields of IoT and drone-based data acquisition, accompanied by the utilization of smart information appliances in business and education.
