Within the International Conference on Pattern Recognition Applications and Methods - ICPRAM 2014



Sid-Ali Ouadfeul
Algerian Petroleum Institute - IAP

Brief Bio
Sid-Ali Ouadfeul is currently a teacher researcher at the Department of Geophysics, Geology and Reservoir Engineering, Algerian Petroleum Institute-IAP Corporate University, Algeria. He received his Engineer diploma from University of Boumerdes, Algeria, a Magister and PhD in Geophysics from the Faculty of Earth Sciences, USTHB, Algeria. During his Master and Doctorate researches he has developed many techniques of pattern recognition in Geosciences. His research interests focus mainly on the studies of nonlinear process in Geosciences including the fractal analysis, wavelet transform and artificial intelligence. He is an author of many papers on the subject. Ouadfeul is the organizer of many sessions in international conferences over the world about the understanding of chaotic systems and pattern recognition in Geosciences. He serves as an editorial member of many reputable journals. Presently, he acts as an editor In-chief of the Journal "Pattern Recognition in Physics, PRP"
Leila Aliouane
