Chief Guest & Guest of Honour

Chief Guest-


Senior Professor and Director of the School of Computer Science at National University Mayor de San Marcos (UNMSM), Peru.

PhD in Computer Science from UNSA with CONCYTEC scholarship and training internship at the LMTG of the Paul Sabatier University in France. He is part of the professionalization program at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology - USA) and has completed the Mastering in Innovation & Design Thinking there. His lines of research are Artificial Intelligence, Data Mining, and computing applied to the environment. He was Director of Information and Knowledge Management of the Research Institute INAIGEM of MINAM, where he proposed the creation of the Vision Laboratory to work with satellite images and aerial images for glacier monitoring; the Innovation Laboratory to use Artificial Intelligence in avalanche detection, use of IoT sensor networks in risk sub-basins; and the Laboratory of Social Analysis Systems, to process qualitative data from communities at risk. It proposes a conceptual model for knowledge management for the indexing of scientific articles and technical reports and launches the Geoportal, where risk assessment maps, the scope of studies and research, and the inventory of glacier ridges in 3D are displayed. The design of intelligent robots for high-risk explorations in glaciers is initiated. He was Director of Research at UNSA, creating in agreement with CONCYTEC the brand UNSA-Investiga, was also coordinator of the master's program in Computer Science funded by CIENCIACTIVA and professor at the School of Computer Science, the first accredited by ICACIT in the area; there he managed the management of canon funds and its impact on the increase of scientific production. He is currently a Senior Professor and Director of the School of Computer Science at UNMSM.
