He is actively involved in several editorial and advisory roles and is a member of various boards and societies related to computer science, e-learning, smart cities, and pattern recognition.


The workshop will concentrate on pattern recognition and behavioral biometrics for medical analysis, particularly targeting neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. It aims to enhance diagnosis, monitoring, and progression tracking through AI techniques. Topics include novel pattern recognition in medical imaging, early diagnosis via biometrics, machine learning in disease assessment, and AI in patient monitoring with IoT and telemedicine. This interactive forum encourages collaboration among academics, healthcare practitioners, and industry experts to foster innovation and partnership, with keynote speeches and discussions on state-of-the-art techniques and future applications in healthcare.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • AI for Healthcare
  • Neurodegenerative Diseases Assessment
  • Pattern Recognition for Healthcare
