Gustau Camps-Valls, Keynote Speaker for the Donald R. F. Harleman Lectureship at 40th IAHR World Congress

IAHR is pleased to announce Gustau Camps-Valls as the elected Keynote Speaker for the Donald R.F Harlerman Lectureship at the 40th IAHR World Congress in Vienna, Austria where he will present his work in Machine Learning and Fluid Mechanics. 

The Donald R. F. Harleman Lectureship recognizes the early contributions to engineering hydraulics by Professor Harleman, and focuses on two areas of IAHR endeavor: artificial intelligence in the context of water science and engineering, and ecohydraulics.

Gustau Camps-VallsGustau Camps-Valls (born 1972 in València) is a Physicist and Full Professor in Electrical Engineering in the Universitat de València, Spain, where lectures on machine learning, remote sensing and signal processing. He is the Head of the Image and Signal Processing (ISP) group, an interdisciplinary group of 40 researchers working at the intersection of AI for Earth and Climate sciences.

Prof. Camps-Valls published over 250+ peer-reviewed international journal papers, 350+ international conference papers, 25 book chapters, and 5 international books on remote sensing, image processing and machine learning. He has an h-index of 82 with 31000+ citations in Google Scholar. He was listed as a Highly Cited Researcher in 2011, 2021 and 2022; currently has 13 «Highly Cited Papers» and 1 «Hot Paper», Thomson Reuters ScienceWatch identified his activities as a Fast Moving Front research (2011) and the most-cited paper in the area of Engineering in 2011, received the Google Classic paper award (2019), and Stanford Metrics includes him in the top 2% most cited researchers of 2017-2020. He publishes in both technical and scientific journals, from IEEE and PLOS One to Nature, Nature Communications, Science Advances, and PNAS.

‘Machine Learning for Earth and Climate Sciences’

He coordinates the ‘Machine Learning for Earth and Climate Sciences’ research program of ELLIS, the top network of excellence on AI in Europe. He was elevated to IEEE Fellow member (2018) in two Societies (Geosciences and Signal Processing) and to ELLIS Fellow (2019). Prof. Camps-Valls is the only researcher receiving two European Research Council (ERC) grants in two different areas: an ERC Consolidator (2015, Computer Science) and ERC Synergy (2019, Physical Sciences) grants to advance AI for Earth and Climate Sciences. In 2021 he became a Member of the ESSC panel part of the European Science Foundation (ESF), and in 2022 was elevated to Fellow of the European Academy of Sciences (EurASc), Fellow of the Academia Europeae (AE), and Fellow of Asia-Pacific Artificial Intelligence Association (AAIA).
