Biographical Information

Jesús Cerquides is a tenured scientist at the Artificial Intelligence Research Institute (IIIA) of the Spanish Council for Scientific Research where he works in the Department of Learning Systems.

He is actively conducting research in the areas of probabilistic graphical models and multi-agent systems. More specifically he is working in:
* Bayesian learning of Bayesian network classifiers, where he collaborates with the group of Prof. Webb, Monash University, Australia.
* Probabilistic approaches for phylogenetic footprinting, where he collaborates with Prof. Grosse, University of Halle, Germany.
* Collaborative multiagent systems (coalition structure generation, supply chain formation, auctions, optimization), where he collaborates with Prof. Farinelli, University of Verona, Italy, Prof. Ramchurn, University of Southampton, UK and Prof. Rodriguez, IIIA-CSIC, Spain.

Formerly he was associate professor in the University of Barcelona, where he founded the Volume Visualization and Artificial Intelligence Research Group. Prior to that he was head of iSOCOLab, Chief Technology Officer, co-founder and member of the board at Intelligent Software Components and Associate Director at UBS IT Research Lab. He obtained his MSc in Informatics (1995) and was awarded as the best 1995 degree level student in Computer Science in Spain. He got his PhD in Artificial Intelligence (2003) from Technical University of Catalonia.

Prof. Cerquides has lead several industrial research projects and participated in many academic research projects in the areas of machine learning and multi-agent systems. He is actively publishing in the main conferences and journals in these areas. He has served in the program committee of several first level conferences such as ECML or AAMAS and workshops such as PGM, AMEC and GTDT. He has reviewed papers for the most relevant artificial intelligence journals. He has acted as reviewer for Spanish and Czech research programmes. He actively collaborates with the next Einstein Initiative by teaching regularly at the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences to help in the scientific development of African students.
