Program Co-Chairs

Béatrice Duval

Brief Bio
Béatrice DUVAL is an associate professor in Computer Science at the University of Angers (France). After studies in mathematics and computer science at the Ecole Normale Supérieure of Fontenay-aux-Roses, she received her PhD in Machine Learning from Orsay University (Paris) in 1991. Her former works concern inductive concept learning and more specifically the induction of non monotonic theories. Her most recent works deal with machine learning and data mining problems in the field of bioinformatics. In collaboration with different colleagues, she has proposed original meta-heuristi s methods to solve combinatorial problems like gene selection, classification and biclustering of microarray data or to improve the recognition of membrane proteins. She has been reviewer, as well as author of articles, for international journals and conferences like Bioinformatics, BMC Bioinformatics, Neurocomputing, Applied Soft Computing, IJAIT, ... ...
