Dr Encarnación Hidalgo-Tenorio is a senior lecturer in English linguistics at the University of Granada, Spain, where she has been teaching undergraduate and master courses since 1993. Although she loves English grammar lectures, her main research area is Critical Discourse Analysis, where she focuses on notions such as representation and power enactment as manifested mainly in public discourse. After the publication of her PhD thesis in 1996, she has written extensively on language and gender, and has also paid attention to the analysis of the way identity can be discursively construed. In her research, she has tried to develop or reconsider some very interesting principles mainly taken from Systemic Functional Grammar such as Transitivity, Modality or Appraisal Theory. In the last years, she has directed two research projects funded by the European Union and the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness, dealing with how Otherness is shaped in social media, and with the detection and analysis of on-line terrorist discourse.
Dr Miguel-Angel Benitez-Castro is a lecturer in English at the School of Education of the University of Zaragoza (Teruel Campus). He successfully completed his PhD at the University of Granada back in December 2013, with a thesis on the formal, syntactic, semantic and textual features of English shell-noun phrases (e.g. fact, issue, problem) in a range of English text types. His main research interest lies in discourse analysis, inspired particularly by Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL) and based on corpus-driven methodologies, which he has managed to apply to his general focus on the interface between lexical choice, discourse structure and evaluation. This general interest is reflected in his previous and ongoing research on shell-noun phrases(e.g. Benitez-Castro 2015), on the evaluation of social minorities in public discourse (e.g. Bartley & Benitez-Castro 2016) and, currently, along with Dr Hidalgo-Tenorio,on the refinement of SFL’s linguistic theory of evaluation (i.e. Appraisal Theory)on the basis of psychological emotion theories and of the analysis of a corpus of interviews with victims of abuse (e.g. Benitez-Castro & Hidalgo-Tenorio Forthcoming). He is now also a member of the research team of a 4-year project funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness, led by Dr Hidalgo-Tenorio and Dr Castro-Peña (University of Granada), on the detection and analysis of on-line terrorist discourse.

ACMLIS’17 will organize workshops in conjunction with the conference. These workshops around a specific topic area will be available through training sessions will be characterized as longer, more focused seminars through which participants will interact with experts and gain invaluable information, perspective, and knowledge. The aim is to provide a forum to exchange the ideas and preliminary results of topics related to Affective computing, Machine Learning, and Intelligent Systems.
ACMLIS’17 Workshops features speakers in a variety of fields who will stimulate discussion and lend their expertise to ACMLIS’17 conference. Click on each speaker's picture to learn more about their areas of expertise and opportunities for speaking engagements.
We invite all participants to attend one of these three workshops. Please make your choice online to the conference through the ACMLIS Registration System (Select Workshop).
These workshops allow the doctoral student to acquire a "high scientific and professional qualification" in order to specialize in his discipline, to conduct his research well and to develop his future employability.
Workshop N°1:International Workshop on Future
While many traditional robots are limited by a predefined set of alternatives for interactions and collaborations, one of the challenging goals in robotics and computer science is to build future robots and devices in physical or virtual forms that are multi-disciplinary in nature, connected to the world knowledge, and interact with humans to solve general as well as domain specific problems.
This workshop will gather people from industry and academia to create an opportunity to discuss how Semantic Computing can be effectively applied for smart interactions between humans and robots for problem solving, where Semantic Computing addresses the derivation, description, generation, integration, and use of the semantics (“meaning”, “context”, “intention”) of sources that may be static, dynamic, structured, semi-structured, unstructured, or a mixture of the above.
The international workshop on Future Robotic Computing and Machine Vision (FRCMV’17) aims at providing an international forum for academia and industry people aiming at understanding, modeling, designing or applying innovative solutions for all aspects involving Machine Vision and Future Robotic Computing
Workshop N°2:International Workshop on Smart
The innovative technologies developed over the last five years start to develop a picture of what smart cities will look like within the next decade.
Smart City is the product of accelerated development of the new generation information technology and knowledge-based economy, based on the network combination of the Internet, telecommunications network, broadcast network, wireless broadband network and other sensors networks where Internet of Things technology (IoT) as its core. The main features of a smart city include a high degree of information technology integration and a comprehensive application of information resources. The essential components of urban development for a smart city should include smart technology, smart industry, smart services, smart management and smart life.
The Internet of Things is about installing sensors (RFID, IR, GPS, laser scanners, etc.) for everything, and connecting them to the internet through specific protocols for information exchange and communications, in order to achieve intelligent recognition, location, tracking, monitoring and management. With the technical support from IoT, smart city need to have three features of being instrumented, interconnected and intelligent. Only then a Smart City can be formed by integrating all these intelligent features at its advanced stage of IOT development.
The explosive growth of Smart City and Internet of Things applications creates many scientific and engineering challenges that call for ingenious research efforts from both academia and industry, especially for the development of efficient, scalable, and reliable Smart City based on IoT. New protocols, architectures, and services are in dire needs to respond for these challenges.
The motivation of International Workshop on Smart City and Internet of Things (SCIoT’17) is to bring together scholars, professors, researchers, engineers and administrators resorting to the state-of-the-art technologies and ideas to significantly improve the field of Smart City based on IoT.
Workshop N°3:International Workshop on the Future
Computing infrastructures and systems are rapidly developing and so are novel ways to map, control and execute scientific applications which become more and more complex and collaborative.
Computational and storage capabilities, databases, sensors, and people need true collaborative tools. Over the last years there has been a real explosion of new theory and technological progress supporting a better understanding of these wide-area, fully distributed sensing and computing systems. Big Data in all its guises require novel methods and infrastructures to register analyze and distill meaning.
The international workshop on the future generation computer systems (FGCS’17) aims to lead the way in advances in distributed systems, collaborative environments, high performance and high performance computing, Big Data on such infrastructures as grids, clouds and the Internet of Things (IoT).
