Vitoantonio Bevilacqua obtained the Bachelor Degree in Electronic Engineering and the Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Polytechnic where he is currently Tenured Assistant Professor of Human Computer Interaction at the Department of Electrical and Information Engineering and taught also Expert Systems, Medical Informatics and Image Processing.
Since 1996 he has been working and investigating in the field of computer vision and image processing, neural networks, evolutionary algorithms, and hybrid expert systems. The main applications of his research are in real world, in biometry, in medicine, in bioinformatics, systems biology and ambient assisted living.
In 2000 he was involved as Visiting Researcher in an EC funded TMR (Trans-Mobility of Researchers) network (ERB FMRX-CT97-0127) called CAMERA (CAd Modeling Environment from Range Images) and worked in Manchester (UK) in the field of geometric feature extraction and 3D objects reconstruction.
He has published more than 100 papers in refereed journals, books, international conferences proceedings and chaired several sessions such as Speech Recognition, Biomedical Informatics, Intelligent Image Processing and Bioinformatics in international conferences.
He won the Best Paper Award at International Conference on Intelligent Computing held in Shanghai (ICIC 2008), he was Program Chair of ICIC 2009, Publication Chair of ICIC 2010, Tutorial Chair of ICIC 2011, Publication Chair of ICIC 2012 and ICIC 2013, Award Committee Chair of ICIC 2014, Special Issue Chair of ICIC 2015. On July 2011, he was invited as lecturer at International School on Medical Imaging using Bio-inspired and Soft Computing-Miere (Spain) MIBISOC FP7-PEOPLE-ITN-2008. GA N. 238819—where presented his research on Intelligent Tumors Computer Aided Early Diagnosis and Therapy: Neural network and Genetic Algorithms frameworks.
