Synopsis

Mario Köppen studied physics at the Humboldt-University of Berlin and received his master degree in solid state physics in 1991. Afterwards, he worked as scientific assistant at the Central Institute for Cybernetics and Information Processing in Berlin and changed his main research interests to image processing and neural networks. From 1992 to 2006, he was working with the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Systems and Design Technology. He continued his works on the industrial applications of image processing, pattern recognition, and soft computing, esp. evolutionary computation. During this period, he achieved the doctoral degree at the Technical University Berlin with his thesis works: "Development of an intelligent image processing system by using soft computing" with honors.

He has published more than 150 peer-reviewed papers in conference proceedings, journals and books and was active in the organization of various conferences as chair or member of the program committee, incl. the WSC on-line conference series on Soft Computing in Industrial Applications, and the HIS conference series on Hybrid Intelligent Systems. He is founding member of the World Federation of Soft Computing, and since 2016 Editor-in-Chief of its Elsevier Applied Soft Computing journal. In 2006, he became JSPS fellow at the Kyushu Institute of Technology in Japan, and in 2008 Professor at the Network Design and Research Center (NDRC) and 2013 Professor at the Graduate School of Creative Informatics of the Kyushu Institute of Technology, where he is conducting now research in the fields of soft computing, esp. for multi-objective and relational optimization, digital convergence and human-centered computing.
