Mohammad Reza Mousavi

Mohammad Mousavi is a professor of Data-Oriented Software Engineering at University of Leicester, UK. He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science in 2005 from TU Eindhoven. He has held positions at TU Eindhoven, TU Delft, Reykjavik University, University of Gothenburg / Chalmers and Halmstad University. He specialises in model-based testing and verification. He is the co-author of some 100 chapters and scientific papers and a book on "Modeling and Analysis of Communicating Systems".

Kamesh Munagala

Kamesh Munagala is Associate Professor of Computer Science at Duke University, where he has been employed since 2004. He obtained his Ph.D. from Stanford University in 2003 and B.Tech. from IIT Bombay in 1998. He is broadly interested in algorithm design, particularly approximation algorithms, sequential decision theory, and algorithmic game theory. He is a recipient of the NSF CAREER Award, the
Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship, and the best paper award at the WWW
2009 conference.

Christopher J Mungall

I am a Computer Research Scientist in the Environmental Genomics and Systems Biology division at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory. My work focuses on computational methods for representing and interpreting complex biological data, in particular through the development and application of knowledge representation structures such as ontologies.

Fionn Murtagh

Fionn Murtagh holds degrees in Mathematics, Engineering, Computer Science and Statistics from Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, and Université P&M Curie, Paris 6, France. Fellow, International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR), British Computer Society. Member, Royal Irish Academy, and Academea Europaea. Former President, Classification Society, and British Classification Society. Fionn's research is in data science, digital content analytics and computational science.

Catherine E Myers

Dr. Myers joined the Neurobehavioral Research Lab at VA NJHCS in 2009 and joined NJMS as a Professor in 2011. Her research interests focus on understanding the brain substrates of learning and memory, using techniques including computational neuroscience and human experimental neuropsychology.

She has authored and co-authored over 100 peer-reviewed scientific articles and several books including the undergraduate-level textbook “Learning and Memory: From Brain to Behavior.”

Elizabeth D Mynatt

Executive Director of the Institute for People and Technology and Professor in the College of Computing at the Georgia Tech. Her research program, known as Everyday Computing, examines the human-computer interface implications of having computation continuously througout everyday life. She is a member of the SIGCHI Academy, a Sloan and Kavli research fellow, and serves on Microsoft Research's Technical Advisory Board. Mynatt is also the Vice-Chair of the Computing Community Consortium.

Laurent Najman

In 1998, he joined OCÉ Print Logic Technologies, as senior scientist. He worked there on various problem of image analysis dedicated to scanning and printing. In 2002, he joined the Informatics Department of ESIEE, Paris, where he is professor and a member of the Laboratoire d’Informatique Gaspard Monge, Université Paris-Est Marne-la-Vallée. His current research interest is discrete mathematical morphology and discrete optimization.

Shrikanth Narayanan

Shri Narayanan is a Professor of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Linguistics and Psychology at USC where he is founding director of the Ming Hsieh Institute and the Signal Analysis and Interpretation Lab (SAIL). He was with AT&T Bell Labs and AT&T Research from 1995-2000. His research focuses on human-centered signal and information processing and systems modeling with an interdisciplinary emphasis on applications with direct societal relevance. He is a Fellow of IEEE, AAAS and ASA.

Mario Negrello

Mario Negrello obtained a mechanical engineering degree in Brazil (1997), and later after a period in the industry (VW 1999-2004) including RD and Prototypes, obtained his Masters degree (2006) and PhD (summa cum laude) in Cognitive Science at the University of Osnabrück in Germany in 2009. At that time, in the Fraunhofer Institute in Sankt Augustin (Germany) for Intelligent Dynamics and Autonomous Systems, he researched artificial evolution of neural network controllers for autonomous robots (2007/08). This work was awarded a scholarship by the International Society of Neural Networks (INNS) to sponsor an eight-month period (2008/09) as a visiting researcher at the Computational Synthesis Lab at the Aerospace Engineering department of the Cornell University in USA (with Hod Lipson). In his first post doctoral period he acted a group leader at the Computational Neuroscience laboratory at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (with Erik De Schutter). He now heads a neuroscience lab that combines empirical research and computational methods (with Chris De Zeeuw). He has published in the fields of Machine Learning and Cognitive Robotics, Artificial Life, Evolutionary Robotics, Neuroethology and Neuroscience, as well as a monograph published by Springer US in the Series Cognitive and Neural systems entitled Invariants of Behavior (2012).
