Dr. Mario Köppen

Professor, Graduate School of Creative Informatics, Kyushu Institute of Technology, Japan
Editor-in-Chief, Applied Soft Computing, Elsevier

Mario Köppen studied physics at the Humboldt-University of Berlin and received his master degree in solid state physics in 1991. Afterwards, he worked as researcher at the Central Institute for Cybernetics and Information Processing in Berlin and changed his main research interests to image processing and neural networks. From 1992 to 2006, he was working with the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Systems and Design Technology. He continued his works on the industrial applications of image processing, pattern recognition, and soft computing, esp. evolutionary computation. During this period, he achieved the doctoral degree at the Technical University Berlin with his thesis works: "Development of an intelligent image processing system by using soft computing" with honors. He has published more than 150 peer-reviewed papers in conference proceedings, journals and books and was active in the organization of various conferences as chair or member of the program committee, incl. the WSC on-line conference series on Soft Computing in Industrial Applications, and the HIS conference series on Hybrid Intelligent Systems.
