Workshop Chairs

Silvia Corchs

HumAn & Cognition in Computing & Interaction TechnologY Laboratory (HA&CC&ITY Lab)
Department of Theoretical and Applied Sciences
University of Insubria (Italy)

Silvia Corchs has a Master and Ph.D degrees in Physics, both from the University of Rosario (Argentina) and a Ph.D degree in Informatics obtained in 2014 from the University of Milano Bicocca (Italy). She was guest scientist at the Computational Neuroscience Group of the Research Department of Siemens in Munich (Germany), focusing on the study of the visual attention mechanism and implementing neurodynamical models. She was research scientist and teaching assistant at the Department of Informatics, Systems and Communication of the University of Milano Bicocca (Italy), working in image processing and multimedia data processing. From 2022 she is Assistant Professor at the Department of Theoretical and Applied Sciences at the University of Insubria, Varese (Italy). Her current research interests focus on the fields of artificial intelligence, human-computer interaction and cognitive computing.

Simone Fontana
School of Law
University of Milano-Bicocca (Italy)

Simone Fontana is currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Milano-Bicocca, where he also completed his PhD in Computer Science in 2016. His primary research interests lie in the field of robotic perception and computer vision. Recently, he has been focusing on applying informatics techniques in the areas of neuropsychology and neuroscience.
He is actively involved in the DriveWin project as a co-investigator. This project aims to investigate the impact of different non-invasive neurostimulation methods on attention while driving. The research involves assessing attention levels using a driving simulator and comparing two different age groups.
In addition, he is also Lecturer at the Advanced Specialization School in Neuropsychology. 

Aurora Saibene

MultiMedia Signal Processing (MMSP) laboratory
Department of Informatics, Systems and Communication
University of Milano-Bicocca (Italy)

Aurora Saibene is a Post Doctoral Research Fellow in Computer Science at the University of Milano-Bicocca, whose research activities are mainly focused on brain-computer interfacing and electrophysiological signal processing, analysis and classification.

She took her Bachelor's, Master's Degree, and PhD in Computer Science at the University of Milano-Bicocca in 2015, 2018, and 2022 respectively.

Her PhD thesis in Computer Science focused on the design of a Flexible Pipeline for Electroencephalographic Signal Processing and Management, wanting to provide a set of suggestions and technical procedures to pre-process, normalize, manage features, and classify a particularly tricky signal like the electroencephalographic one in different contexts. She has especially focused on the field of motor movement and imagery and she is now facing the challenge of employing wearable technologies with a multimodal approach to provide efficient and reliable brain-computer interfacing systems.

Jordi Solé-Casals

Data and Signal Processing (DPS) Research Group
Department of Engineering
Universitat de Vic - Universitat Central de Catalunya (Spain)

Prof. Jordi Solé-Casals received the MSc degree in Telecommunication Engineering in 1995, and the PhD degree with European label in 2000, both from the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC), Barcelona, and the Bachelor degree of Humanities from the Open University of Catalonia (UOC), Barcelona, in 2010. He is currently Visiting Researcher at the Department of Psychiatry of the University of Cambridge and at the College of Artificial Intelligence, Nankai University, China.
He is Full Professor of the Department of Engineering of the University of Vic – Central University of Catalonia and head of the Data and Signal Processing Research Group (DSP, UVic-UCC).
