Keynote speakers

Rakesh Agrawal

Rakesh Agrawal is one of most influential computer scientists, the author of seminal papers in the field of data mining and databases. His work created a base for such products as IBM’s Intelligent Miner, DB2 Mining Extender, DB2 OLAP Server and WebSphere Commerce Server, along with Srikant he proposed one of the most popular database algorithms, AProri.His reserch is incorporated into Microsoft’s Bing search engine. His papers are the best two cited papers in the field of data mining and databases. He is socially oriented, working for President of India and National Academy of Sciences on teaching strategies, textbooks and on databases for voter registration, in order to improve the society and people’s living.

Jan Komorowski

Dr. Jan Komorowski is Professor and Chair of Bioinformatics at the Department of Cell and Molecular Biology, Uppsala University, one of the top Life Science institutions. He graduated in Computer Science from University of Warsaw and received his PhD at Linköping University with Prof. Erik Sandewall. He served as Assistant Professor at Harvard University and Adjunct Professor at MIT from 1982-1986. His research contributions span almost the entire field of pan-omics. He has contributed to The Encyclopedia of DNA Elements (ENCODE) project and is presently a member of the multi-national Pan-cancer initiative. Dr. Komorowski has contributed to the development of rough set applications. In collaboration with Professors Lech Polkowski and Andrzej Skowron and their colleagues he developed the ROSETTA rough set system and co-authored the rough set tutorial that has been cited almost 1000 times. His recent research contributions include the construction of a complete map of potential pathogenicity markers of the avian influenza virus and the discovery of mutational burden for the CTCF transcription factor motif in gastro-intestinal cancers. He has introduced the notion of rule networks based on rough set models. Dr. Komorowski is also Visiting Professor at the Institute of Computer Science, Polish Academy of Sciences, where he leads the Computational Biology group.
