Prof. Vicenc Torra is currently a professor at the Hamilton Institute at Maynooth University (Ireland). He is an IEEE and EurAI Fellow. He has written six books including "Modeling decisions" (with Y. Narukawa, Springer, 2007), "Data Privacy" (Springer, 2017), and "Scala: from a functional programming perspective" (Springer, 2017), and edited several books including "Data science in practice" (with A. Said, Springer, 2019) and "Non-additive measures: theory and applications" (with Y. Narukawa and M. Sugeno, Springer, 2014).

 His fields of interests include approximate reasoning (fuzzy sets, fuzzy measures/non-additive measures and integrals), decision making, aggregation and integration, data privacy, and machine learning. He regularly participates in program committees in the areas of approximate reasoning and data privacy, and is member of several editorial boards including Transactions on Data Privacy (founder and editor), Information Sciences (Area editor), Fuzzy Sets and Systems, and Progress in Artificial Intelligence. He started in 2004 the annual conference series Modeling Decisions for Artificial Intelligence (MDAI). His web page is:

Prof. Oscar Castillo holds the Doctor in Science degree (Doctor Habilitatus) in Computer Science from the Polish Academy of Sciences (with the Dissertation “Soft Computing and Fractal Theory for Intelligent Manufacturing”). He is a Professor of Computer Science in the Graduate Division, Tijuana Institute of Technology, Tijuana, Mexico. In addition, he is serving as Research Director of Computer Science and head of the research group on Hybrid Fuzzy Intelligent Systems. Currently, he is President of HAFSA (Hispanic American Fuzzy Systems Association) and Past President of IFSA (International Fuzzy Systems Association). Prof. Castillo is also Chair of the Mexican Chapter of the Computational Intelligence Society (IEEE). He also belongs to the Technical Committee on Fuzzy Systems of IEEE and to the Task Force on “Extensions to Type-1 Fuzzy Systems”. He is also a member of NAFIPS, IFSA and IEEE. He belongs to the Mexican Research System (SNI Level 3). His research interests are in Type-2 Fuzzy Logic, Fuzzy Control, Neuro-Fuzzy and Genetic-Fuzzy hybrid approaches. He has published over 300 journal papers, 10 authored books, 40 edited books, 200 papers in conference proceedings, and more than 300 chapters in edited books, in total about 800 publications according to Scopus (H index=50), and more than 900 according to Research Gate (H index=62). He has been Guest Editor of several successful Special Issues in the past, like in the following journals: Applied Soft Computing, Intelligent Systems, Information Sciences, Non-Linear Studies, Fuzzy Sets and Systems, JAMRIS and Engineering Letters. He is currently Associate Editor of the Information Sciences Journal, Applied Soft Computing Journal, Granular Computing Journal and the IEEE Transactions on Fuzzy Systems. Finally, he has been elected IFSA Fellow and MICAI Fellow member last year. He has been recognized as Highly Cited Researcher in 2017 and 2018 by Clarivate Analytics because of having multiple highly cited papers in Web of Science during the past 10 years.
