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-heuristics 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, ... ...

Jaap van den Herik
Leiden University

Brief Bio
Jaap van den Herik is one of the Founders of the Netherlands Foundation of Artificial Intelligence (1981), nowadays called *BNVKI – Benelux Association for Artificial Intelligence (Honorary member). See He is a visionary professor who predicted in 1991 that machines would judge court cases and replace judges in the future (1991). He started as a frontrunner in computer-chess research (1983). He was able to attract many talented researchers and has been the successful supervisor of 93 Ph.D. researchers. As Professor of Law and Computer Science at Leiden University, Leiden, the Netherlands, he is now finalising by the supervision of four Ph.D students. For ICAART Jaap has been active in all possible roles (from participant to keynote speaker and session chair, and later to program chair and conference chair). His current research interests are: Legal Technologies, and Intelligent Systems for Law Applications, e-discovery, Computer Games, Serious Games, Big Data, Machine Learning, Adaptive Agents, Neural Networks, Information Retrieval, and e-Humanities. ...
