Jesus Alcala-Fdez received the M.Sc. and the Ph.D. degrees in computer science, both from the University of Granada, Granada, Spain, in 2002 and 2006, respectively. He was with the Department of Computer Science, University of Jaen, Jaen, Spain, from 2005 to 2007. He is currently an Assistant Professor with the Department of Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence, University of Granada, where he is a member of the Soft Computing and Intelligent Information Systems Research Group. He has published more than 50 papers in international journals (more than 20 papers JCRs), book chapters, and conferences. He was involved in several research projects supported by the Spanish Government and the Andalusian Government. His current research interests include fuzzy association rules, genetic fuzzy systems, and data mining software. Dr. Alcala-Fdez co-edited the IEEE Transactions On Fuzzy Systems Special Issue on “Genetic Fuzzy Systems: What’s Next” and the Journal of Multiple-Valued Logic and Soft Computing Special Issue on “Soft Computing Techniques in Data Mining.” He currently serves as a member of the editorial board of the International Journal on Advances in Information Sciences and Service Sciences. He is chair of the “Software Fuzzy Systems” Task Force of the Fuzzy Systems Technical Committee with the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society since 2011 and vicechair of the “Software Tools and Data Repository” of the Standards Committee with the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society since 2012. He has been Publicity-Chair for the Conference of Genetic and Evolutionary Fuzzy Systems in 2010 and 2011 and Special Sessions and Workshops-Chair at the Conference of Intelligent Systems Design and Applications in 2011.
