About the editors

Yen-Wei Chen received his Ph.D. degree from Osaka University, Japan, in 1990. He is currently a Professor at the College of Information Science and Engineering, Ritsumeikan University, Japan. He is also a Visiting Professor at the College of Computer Science and Technology, Zhejiang University, China. His research interests include medical image analysis and pattern recognition.

Satoshi Tanaka received his Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics at Waseda University, Japan, in 1987. After serving as an Assistant Professor, Senior Lecturer and Associate Professor at Waseda and Fukui Universities, he became a Professor at Ritsumeikan University in 2002. His current research focuses on computer visualization of complex 3D shapes such as 3D scanned cultural heritage objects, internal structures of the human body, and fluid simulations.

Robert Howlett is the Executive Chair of KES International, a non-profit organization that facilitates knowledge transfer and the dissemination of research findings in areas such as intelligent systems, sustainability and knowledge transfer. He is a Visiting Professor at Bournemouth University in the UK. His has technical expertise in the use of intelligent systems to solve industrial problems, and his current research focuses on the use of smart microgrids to reduce energy costs and lower carbon emissions in areas such as housing and protected horticulture.

Lakhmi C. Jain, Ph.D., M.E., B.E. (Hons), Fellow of Engineers Australia, works for the University of Technology Sydney, Australia, and Liverpool Hope University, UK. He also serves at KES International, providing the professional community with opportunities for knowledge exchange, cooperation and teaming. Involving around 5,000 researchers drawn from universities and companies worldwide, KES facilitates international cooperation and generates synergy in teaching and research.
