Talca-Chile, 08 to 14 November


The Jornadas Chilenas de Computación (JCC) is the most important computer science event in Chile since 1993. Its objective is to provide a meeting point for the academia and the industry in computer science and informatics, to share experience, develop joint projects and expand these disciplines.


Guest Speakers


Benny Kimelfeld
Ph.D. in Computer Science
The Hebrew University of Jerusalem

After receiving his Ph.D. in Computer Science from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Benny spent five years at IBM Research – Almaden. Since 2014, Benny has been a Computer Scientist at LogicBlox. Benny’s research spans a spectrum of both foundational and systems aspects of data management, such as probabilistic databases, information retrieval over structured data, view updates, semistructured data, graph mining, and infrastructure for text analytics. Benny was an invited tutorial speaker at PODS 2014, a co-chair of the first SIGMOD/PODS workshop on Big Uncertain Data (BUDA), and currently serves as an associate editor in the Journal of Computer and System Sciences (JCSS).



Clovis Tauber
Ph.D.  Université de Tours, France.

Conference : Advances in vector-valued image processing with applications to dynamic brain medical imaging.

Clovis Tauber received the Ph.D. degree from the Institut National Polytechnique de Toulouse, France, in 2005. From 2005 to 2007 he was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Institut de Recherche en Informatique de Toulouse (IRIT-ENSEEIHT), France. In 2008, he was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Quantitative Image Analysis Unit, Institut Pasteur, Paris, France. Since 2008, he is an Associate Professor at the University of Tours and he has joined the UMRS INSERM U930 Imaging and Brain Unit, Tours, France. He is responsible of the Medical Image Processing Group within the Brain Molecular Imaging team. His research interests are centered around medical image reconstruction, filtering, segmentation, registration and quantification, with a particular interest in exploiting the consistency of spatio-temporal information in dynamic image sequences.

Denis Parra
PhD in Information Science de University of Pittsburgh, Estados Unidos.
Contest Winner Invited Conference of the Chilean Computing Week 2014.

Conference: Research in recommender systems: Beyond Ratings and Lists.

Dr. Denis Parra is Assistant Professor at the Computer Science Department in PUC Chile since August 2013. He obtained a B.S. and a professional title of Civil Engineer in Informatics from Universidad Austral de Chile in 2004, and a Ph.D. in Information Sciences from the University of Pittsburgh (PA, USA) in 2013.
