Francesco Camastra was born in Polignano a Mare, Italy, in 1960. He holds an M.S. degree in physics at University of Milan in 1985 and a Ph.D degree in computer science at the University of Genova in 2004. From May 1987 to January 2006, he was in R&D Department of Elsag in Genova. In 2005, he was an Adjoint Professor at University of Pisa and was the recipient of Eduardo R. Caianiello Award 2005, promoted by the Italian Neural Network Society, for the best Ph.D. thesis on neural networks. Since February 2006, he has been with the Department of Applied Science of the Parthenope University of Naples where at present he is Ricercatore Universitario (~ Senior UK Lecturer). He was the recipient (together with M. Filippone, F. Masulli, S. Rovetta) of PR Award 2008, as coauthor of the best paper published on pattern recognition in the year 2008. He published 44 papers on peer-reviewed journals and proceedings of conferences and 1 book. He served as a Reviewer for Computer Vision and Image Understanding, Control and Intelligent Systems, Cytokine, Data and Knowledge Engineering, IEEE Signal Processing Letters, IEEE Transactions on Image Processing, IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering, IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks, IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence, IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man and Cybernetics-B, IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing, Information Sciences, International Journal of Neural Systems, International Journal of Computational Intelligence Studies, Journal of Computer Science and Technology, Journal of Zhejiang University-SCIENCE A, Neural Processing Letters, Neural Computation, Neurocomputing, Pattern Recognition and Pattern Recognition Letters, and the Open Artificial Intelligence Journal.
