Conference Committee

Conference Chairs

Claude Frasson, University of Montreal, Canada
claude-frasson  Claude Frasson is Professor in Computer Science at University of Montreal since 1983, Head of the HERON laboratory and GRITI inter-university Research Group involving seven universities in Quebec. His research interests are at the convergence of Artificial Intelligence, Education, Human Computer Interaction. He founded, in 1988, the ITS international conference in Intelligent Tutoring Systems, which holds every two years. He coordinated the SAFARI project, a multidisciplinary research effort involving an industrial approach for building, distributing and controlling intelligent courses on the Web and is at the origin of a patent on a distance learning architecture based on networked cognitive agents. He received an ACM award for excellence as the organization chair of 2001 Autonomous Agent Conference. Since 2004, he aims to understand how the human brain functions with emotions, considering that they play an important role in knowledge acquisition and subconscious learning, using EEG systems (see Predicting the Three Major Dimensions of the Learner’s Emotions from Brainwaves and Towards a Brain-Sensitive Intelligent Tutoring System: Detecting Emotions from Brainwaves). He chaired about 20 International conferences and participated to the program committee of numerous international conferences in his research field.


George Kostopoulos, University of Patras, Greece
  George K. Kostopoulos M.D., PhD. is Professor Emeritus and past Chairman of the Department of Physiology at the Medical School of the University of Patras, Greece. He has taught several courses on neurophysiology, neuroinformatics and bioethics. In 1982, after several years’ work with the Departments of Neurology and Physiology of McGill University, Canada, he established the Neurophysiology Research Unit at UOP, which conducts experimental neurophysiological research on the neuronal mechanisms underlying brain EEG rhythms, memory, epilepsy and sleep (see )
