Keynote Speakers

In order to deepen the communication in all the participants, ICCBB 2018 have invited professors from local Italy and all over the world to have speeches about Computational Biology and Bioinformatics and related fields.

Keynote Speaker I

Prof. (President) Eugenio Di Sciascio, Polytechnic University of Bari, Italy

Eugenio Di Sciascio received the "laurea" degree with honors from University of Bari, and the Ph.D. from Politecnico di Bari (Technical University of Bari). In 1992 he joined the University of Lecce as an assistant professor. He has been an associate professor at Technical University of Bari and since 2004, then, he is full professor of Information Technology Engineering. He is currently the Rettore (President) of Politecnico di Bari. He is scientific coordinator of the Information Systems Lab (SisInfLab) at Politecnico di Bari and leads the research group of SisInfLab. He has served as reviewer for several international journals and conferences; he has been in the board of international and national conferences. His research interests include knowledge representation and automated reasoning, with applications devoted to electronic commerce, Semantic Web and Web of Data, information retrieval and recommender systems, pervasive computing. He has been consultant on topics related to his research interests for both public agencies and privately owned companies. He has been responsible of national and European research projects.

Keynote Speaker II

Prof. Hesham H. Ali, University of Nebraska at Omaha, USA

Hesham H. Ali is a Professor of Computer Science and Lee and Wilma Seaman Distinguished Dean of the College of Information Science and Technology at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO). He currently serves as the director of the UNO Bioinformatics Core Facility that supports a large number of biomedical research projects in Nebraska and surrounding region. He has published numerous articles in various IT areas including scheduling, distributed systems, data analytics, wireless networks, and Bioinformatics. He has also published two books in scheduling and graph algorithms, and several book chapters in Bioinformatics. He has been serving as the PI or Co-PI of several projects funded by NSF, NIH and Nebraska Research Initiative in the areas of data analytics, wireless networks and Bioinformatics. He has also been leading a Bioinformatics Research Group that focuses on developing innovative computational approaches to classify biological organisms and analyze big bioinformatics data. The research group is currently developing several next generation big data analytics tools for mining various types of large-scale biological and medical data. This includes the development of new graph theoretic models for assembling short reads obtained from high throughput instruments, as well as employing a novel correlation networks approach for analyzing large heterogeneous biological and health data associated with various biomedical research areas, particularly projects associated with aging and infectious diseases. He has also been leading a multi-disciplinary project for developing secure and energy-aware wireless infrastructure to address tracking and monitoring problems in medical environments, particularly to study mobility profiling of various groups and implement a population analysis approach for healthcare research.

Plenary Speaker I

Assoc. Prof. Michele Ruta, Polytechnic University of Bari, Italy

Michele Ruta is an associate Professor Affiliated to SisInfLab - Information Systems Research Group at the Department of Electric and Information Engineering at the Technical University of Bari. He graduated from the Bari Technical University in Electronic Engineering, discussing a thesis in Operating Systems entitled "Study and development of a remote control application over IP". In June 2007, he obtained his PhD in Information Engineering, discussing the thesis entitled "Knowledge Representation and Management Methods for Mobile Systems and Contexts". Michele Ruta's main research themes concern the application of techniques and technologies of knowledge representation to mobile systems, wireless networks and ubiquitous web. In particular, his research interests tend to the integration at an application level of techniques for the representation of knowledge with wireless protocols for ad-hoc mobile networks, in order to create a pervasive dynamic, collaborative and context-aware computing infrastructure, capable of supporting applications and services based on semantics. He is co-author of over 120 scientific publications at national and international conferences and international journals. He has participated in numerous national and international projects and has carried out with continuity teaching activities. He is currently professor of Operating Systems and Web languages and technologies.
