Oscar Ibáñez, University of Granada, Spain.

Óscar Ibáñez is Post-doctoral researcher at the University of Granada and affiliated researcher at the European Centre for Soft Computing. He has developed his studies in five different Universities, his research career in four different labs, performed stays in another four, and made research visits to around other 20 institutions as part of different national and European projects.
As a result of his PhD dissertation he received the Best Ph.D. Thesis Award by the European Society for Fuzzy Logic and Technologies (EUSFLAT). This work led to the development of an international patented novel system for automatic forensic identification called Face2Skull, recently commercialized in several South American countries. In addition, as part of the co-authors, he received the Award for Outstanding Applications of Fuzzy Technology by the International Fuzzy Systems Association (IFSA). Other recognition include the IEEE CIS Outstanding CIM Paper Award in 2015, and two prestigious postdoctoral grants, Juan de la Cierva (2014), and Juan de la Cierva-incorporación (2016). After almost 10 years of international experience, Dr. Ibáñez is recognized by his contributions in the areas of Soft Computing and Computer Vision, and their applications to different scientific disciplines: forensic anthropology, medical imaging, neurology, and costal engineering. He has co-authored more than 50 research papers with around 70 researchers from 32 different research institutions including 20 articles in the top-ranked SCI-JCR journals. Finally, he has participated in more than 20 research projects and contracts at a EU, national, and regional level.

Sergio Damas, European Centre for Soft Computing, Spain

received the Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Granada, Spain. Since 2011, he is the principal researcher of the "Fuzzy-Evolutionary Applications" at the European Centre for Soft Computing, Spain. His current research interests are in the fields of soft computing for forensic anthropology and medical imaging, fuzzy logic, computer vision, evolutionary computation and their applications to different real-world problems.


Vincenzo Piru, Università degli Studi di Milano, Italy

Dr. Vincenzo is Full Professor in Computer Engineering (since 2000) at UMIL. He was Visiting Professor at the University of Texas at Austin (in the summers from 1996 to 1999) and at the George Mason University (august 2012 and 2013). His main research interests are: theory and industrial applications of neural techniques, biometrics, signal and image processing for industrial applications, neural network architectures, application-specific processing architectures, and fault tolerance. He has participated in several national and European projects funded by the Italian Ministry of Research, the National Research Council of Italy, the European Union, and industries. He is author of more than 350 papers in international journals, proceedings of international conferences, and book chapters. He is 2015 IEEE Vice President for Technical Activities. He is Director of the Industrial, Environmental and Biometric Informatics Laboratory at the University of Milan, Italy.
