Fernando Rojas is an Associate Professor at the University of Granada, Spain, where he received his Ph.D. in 2004. His research focuses on signal processing, artificial intelligence techniques for optimization, including evolutionary computation, fuzzy logic, neural networks etc., and the study of computer architectures for parallel processing in complex problems, such as time series prediction. He has published over 25 articles in JCR-indexed journals. A former coordinator of the Master’s Degree in Computer and Network Engineering at the University of Granada, he has been the secretary of the Master’s Degree in Data Science and Computer Engineering since 2014, and the secretary of the Department of Architecture and Computer Technology at the University of Granada since 2018.
Luis Javier Herrera is an Associate Professor at the University of Granada, Spain, where he received his Ph.D. in 2006. His research focuses on machine learning techniques (fuzzy logic, deep learning, genetic algorithms, etc.), and on their optimization and application over a wide range of scientific problems related to classification, approximation and time series prediction, sometimes requiring high-performance computing systems. These applications include relevant problems in several fields such as biomedicine, bioinformatics, biochemistry, physics, optics, etc. He has published more than 40 papers in JCR-indexed journals. Over the last several years, he has (co-)led a number of research projects backed by national and regional funding entities.
