Prof. Ph.D. Jerffeson Teixeira de Souza

He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the School of Information Technology and Engineering (SITE) University of Ottawa, Canada. He is an adjunct professor at the State University of Ceará (UECE) and Pro-rector for Postgraduate and Research UECE, having worked as Research Director UECE, Coordinator of Academic Masters in Computer Science UECE (MACC) and Coordinator general of the Integrated Professional Master in Applied Computer UECE / IFCE (MPCOMP). Currently he is the Coordinator of the Group of Engineering Optimization Software UECE (GOES.UECE) and Software Standards UECE (GPS.UECE) and Coordinator of the Specialization in Software Engineering with Emphasis on Software Standards UECE (EES). He is also an elected member of the Steering Committee of the International Symposium on Search Based Software Engineering and nominated member of the Hillside Group. He also worked as Co-President of the Fourth Latin American Conference on Pattern Languages ​​of Programming (SugarLoafPLoP 2004), as Co-Chair of the Program Committee in the SugarLoafPLoP 2007, as President SugarLoafPLoP 2008 and is currently Co-Chair of Committee Program of the 4th International Symposium on Search Based Software Engineering (SSBSE'2012). He is one of the forerunners in the field of Search Based Software Engineering in Brazil and one of the leading resarchers of this area in the country and was also the founder and General Coordinator of the I I Workshop Brasileiro de Otimização em Engenharia de Software (woes), which was nominated after as Workshop Brasileiro Engenharia de Software Baseada em Busca (WESB). His research interests are: Optimization in Software Engineering, Documentation and Application of Software Patterns and Technical Study and Application of Data Mining Algorithms.
