Donatello Conte received his Ph.D. degree in 2006 by a joint supervision between LIRIS laboratory of the INSA of Lyon (France) and MIVIA laboratory of the University of Salerno (Italy). He has been an Assistant Professor from 2006 to 2013, in Italy at the University of Salerno. From 2013 to date, he is Associate Professor at the Computer Science Laboratory of the University of Tours. He is currently head of the Computer Science Department at Polytech Tours School of Engineering. Currently he is co-head of the RFAI team at the Computer Science Laboratory and he participates, as member and sometimes as local coordinator, to several regional projects on image and video analysis. His main research fields are: structural pattern recognition (graph matching, graph kernels, combinatorial maps), video analysis (objects detection and tracking, trajectories analysis, behavioral analysis, etc.), and affective computing (emotion recognition, multimodality analysis for affective analysis, physiological measures by video analysis, etc.). He is the author of more than 70 publications and reviewers in the main journals in his research field (PAMI, PR, CVIU, TIP, etc.). He is member of the Editorial Board of the Elsevier Journal Internet of Things, MDPI Journal of Imaging and he is Guest Editor for the Pattern Recognition Letters journal. He has been co-chair of the International Workshop on Graph-basd Representation in Pattern Recognition (GbR2019) that was held in France in June 2019. He has been co-chair of the Video Processing for Human Behavioral Analysis (VP-HBA) Track at the 35th ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC 2020). Since 2016 he is member of the Governing Board of the French Association for Research in Technical Aids for the Disability (IFRATH). Since 2016 he is member of the Governing Board of the French Association for Pattern Recognition (AFRIF) and he has been association secretary since 2018.

Ana Fred
Instituto de Telecomunicações and University of Lisbon

Brief Bio
Ana Fred received the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering, in 1989 and 1994, respectively, both from Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), Technical University of Lisbon, Portugal. She is a Faculty Member of IST since 1986, where she has been a professor with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and more recently with the Department of Biomedical Engineering. She is a researcher at the Pattern and Image Analysis Group of the Instituto de Telecomunicações. Her main research areas are on pattern recognition, both structural and statistical approaches, with application to data mining, learning systems, behavioral biometrics, and biomedical applications. She has done pioneering work on clustering, namely on cluster ensemble approaches. Recent work on biosensors hardware (including BITalino – and ECG-based biometrics (Vitalidi project) have been object of several nacional and internacional awards, as well as wide dissemination on international media, constituting a success story of knowledge transfer from research to market. She has published over 160 papers in international refereed conferences, peer reviewed journals, and book chapters. ... More >>
