Short Bio

PhD and Habillitation in Informatics Engineering, Full Professor at the University of Coimbra, where he teaches Artificial Intelligence, Computational Creativity, Programming for Design, Sound Design and other topics. He is Academic Ombudsman of the Faculty of Sciences and Technology of the University of Coimbra since 2016.
He developed pioneering work on Computational Creativity in the 90's, ever since assuming important roles in the area, including: Chair of the Working Group on Computational Creativity of Action COST 282 (2001-2003), co-founder of the series of workshops "Creative Systems" (2001 -2003), member of the Steering Committee of the International Conference on Computational Creativity (2006-present), General Chair of the 7th International Conference on Computational Creativity, ICCC 2016, Paris, France. He was involved in the FET Coordination Action ProSECCo - Promoting the Scientific Exploration of Computational Creativity (2013-2016) - and in the FP7-ICT STREPS project ConCreTe - Concept Creation Technology (2013-2016). His research interests also extend to the Affective Computing and Multi-Agent Systems, especially in contexts of creative systems, automatic music composition, sound and music computing, sonification and interactive music. He has been involved in FP7, FET and H2020 evaluations pannels. He was President of the External Evaluation Commission for the HE Polytechnics programs in Informatics.
