Professional Biography

Dr. Juan Antonio Lossio-Ventura is a postdoctoral associate in the biomedical domain collaborating with Jiang Bian. Dr. Lossio-Ventura comes to the Department of Health Outcomes & Policy from the University of Montpellier – LIRMM, France, where he received his Ph.D., under the supervision of Mathieu Roche, Clement Jonquet, and Maguelonne Teisseire. During his Ph.D., he was involved in the SIFR Project (http://www.lirmm.fr/sifr/), which has for objective to investigate the scientific and technical challenges in building ontology-based services. The project addresses the issues related to the processing of French biomedical data in collaboration with NCBO (Stanford University).

He also did a research visit at the University of Manchester – NaCTeM, United Kingdom, under the supervision of Sophia Ananiadou.

He is interested on the diffusion of areas such as Big Data, NLP, Data Mining and Semantic Web, through scientific events. Lossio-Ventura is the general chair of SIMBig 2016 (http://simbig.org/SIMBig2016/), was the general chair of SIMBig 2015 (http://simbig.org/SIMBig2015/), and SIMBig 2014 (http://www.lirmm.fr/simbig2014/), He has been part of the organizing committee of NLDB 2014 (http://www.lirmm.fr/nldb2014/) and he helped the local chairs in the organization of ESWC 2013 (http://2013.eswc-conferences.org/).
