He received the M.Sc. degree in Robotics and Intelligent Systems from the UPMC, Paris, 2001. He received the PhD degree in Speech Signal Processing from the same university in 2004. In 2005, he was an invited Visiting Research Fellow at the Department of Computer Science and Mathematics of the University of Stirling (UK). Prof. Chetouani was also an invited researcher at the Signal Processing Group of Escola Universitaria Politecnica de Mataro, Barcelona (Spain). He is currently a Full Professor in Signal Processing, Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning at the UPMC. His research activities, carried out at the Institute for Intelligent Systems and Robotics, cover the areas of social signal processing and personal robotics through non-linear signal processing, feature extraction, pattern classification and machine learning. He is also the co-chairman of the French Working Group on Human- Robots/Systems Interaction (GDR Robotique CNRS) and a Deputy Coordinator of the Topic Group on Natural Interaction with Social Robots (euRobotics). He is the Deputy Director of the Laboratory of Excellence SMART Human/Machine/Human Interactions In The Digital Society.

Vanessa Evers is Professor of Human Media Interaction at the University of Twente. She is a leading scholar in Human Robot Social Interaction. She has a PhD from the Open university, UK and was a visiting Scholar at Stanford University and Tsinghua University. Previously employed by the University of Amsterdam’s Psychology department, Vanessa Evers now works in Computer Science on Cognitive Social Psychological aspects of Intelligent Systems. This primarily concerns the ’common-sense’ ways in which individuals make sense of the technology they encounter. Especially, cultural, emotional and motivational aspects of interacting with intelligent agents such as robots. Prof. Vanessa Evers is coordinator of the Natural Interaction with Social Robots Topic group.
