The role of the tutorials is to provide a platform for a more intensive scientific exchange amongst researchers interested in a particular topic and as a meeting point for the community. Tutorials complement the depth-oriented technical sessions by providing participants with broad overviews of emerging fields. A tutorial can be scheduled for 1.5 or 3 hours.

Meet the Editor Session: Journal of Information Fusion (Elsevier), Journal Progress in Artificial Intelligence (Springer) and Journal of Grid Computing (Springer)


Francisco Herrera
University of Granada
Brief Bio
Francisco Herrera (SM'15) received his M.Sc. in Mathematics in 1988 and Ph.D. in Mathematics in 1991, both from the University of Granada, Spain. He is currently a Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence at the University of Granada. He has been the supervisor of 42 Ph.D. students. He has published more than 400 journal papers that have received more than 62000 citations (Scholar Google, H-index 125). He is coauthor of the books "Genetic Fuzzy Systems" (World Scientific, 2001) and "Data Preprocessing in Data Mining" (Springer, 2015), "The 2-tuple Linguistic Model. Computing with Words in Decision Making" (Springer, 2015), "Multilabel Classification. Problem analysis, metrics and techniques" (Springer, 2016), "Multiple Instance Learning. Foundations and Algorithms" (Springer, 2016). He currently acts as Editor in Chief of the international journals "Information Fusion" (Elsevier) and “Progress in Artificial Intelligence (Springer). He acts as editorial member of a dozen of journals. He received the following honors and awards: ECCAI Fellow 2009, IFSA Fellow 2013, 2010 Spanish National Award on Computer Science ARITMEL to the "Spanish Engineer on Computer Science", International Cajastur "Mamdani" Prize for Soft Computing (Fourth Edition, 2010), IEEE Transactions on Fuzzy System Outstanding 2008 and 2012 Paper Award (bestowed in 2011 and 2015 respectively), 2011 Lotfi A. Zadeh Prize Best paper Award of the International Fuzzy Systems Association, 2013 AEPIA Award to a scientific career in Artificial Intelligence, and 2014 XV Andalucía Research Prize Maimónides (by the regional government of Andalucía), 2017 Security Forum I+D+I Prize, and 2017 Andalucía Medal (by the regional government of Andalucía). He has been selected as a Highly Cited Researcher (in the fields of Computer Science and Engineering, respectively, 2014 to present, Clarivate Analytics). His current research interests include among others, soft computing (including fuzzy modeling, evolutionary algorithms and deep learning), computing with words, information fusion and decision making, and data science (including data preprocessing, prediction and big data).
Péter Kacsuk
Brief Bio
Professor Peter Kacsuk is the Head of the Research Laboratory of the Parallel and Distributed Systems. He received his MSc and university doctorate degrees from the Technical University of Budapest in 1976 and 1984, respectively. He received the kandidat degree from the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in 1989. He habilitated at the University of Vienna in 1997.

He served as visiting scientist or professor several times at various universities of Austria, England, Germany, Spain, Australia and Japan. He has published two books, two lecture notes and more than 200 scientific papers on parallel computer architectures, parallel software engineering and Grid computing. He is co-editor-in-chief of the Journal of Grid Computing published by Springer.

The goal of this session is to give the opportunity for all participants to meet editor-in-chiefs of A-grade journals at the main conference.
In this session the participants will have the opportunity to learn and share the latest results in these journals, learn more regarding the reviewing process and have a glance of the most important challenges on publishing scientific results including tips on how to write your article, publishing ethics and data sharing.
The editor-in-chiefs will be available to answer questions, hear ideas and discuss any comments about the journals.
