Exterior Research Visitors
F. de A. T. de Carvalho was a visiting professor at AxIS project during three months (October to December). He collaborated actively with Y. Lechevallier on partitional clustering algorithms based on multiple dissimilarity matrices in order to submit a paper to the COMPSTAT conference (to be held on Paris, August 22-27 2010) and an extended version to a international journal.
Additionally, he presented a communication about "Holt's exponential smoothing model for interval-valued time series" during the Workshop in Symbolic Data Analysis, 18-20 October 2009, Wienerwaldhof (Austria).
He was also invited by Prof. R. Verde (Second Naples University) from 10 to 15 of November 2009 where he presented a seminar about “Recent clustering methods for interval data”.
He was invited by A. Napoli (Projet Orpailleur, Laboratoire LORIA, Nancy) where F. de A. T. de Carvalho presented a talk about "Recent Advances in Partitioning Clustering Algorithms for Interval-Valued Data"  during the First SaarLorLux Workshop on Systems Biology 2009 (https://wiki.mpi-inf.mpg.de/SysBio/Workshop2009/Schedule?action=print ).
