The University of Saint Joseph in cooperation with the Zhuhai College of Science and Technology, China, held the 22nd IEEE/ACIS International Hybrid Conference on Computer and Information Science (ICIS 2022) from 26 to 28 June 2022.



The University of Saint Joseph (USJ) in cooperation with the Zhuhai College of Science and Technology, China, held the 22nd IEEE/ACIS International Hybrid Conference on Computer and Information Science (ICIS 2022) from 26 to 28 June 2022. The conference was sponsored by the IEEE and International Association for Computer and Information Science (ACIS).

Professor Keith Morrison, the vice-rector of USJ served as an ICIS 2022 General Chair. Professor Roger Lee from Central Michigan University, USA was a co-General Chair. The International Program Committee comprised representatives from China, Canada, the UK, Macao, and the USA. Professor George Wencai Du, Dean of the Institute for Data Engineering and Science (IDEAS) at USJ, was the key organizer of the conference, serving as co-chair, and Associate Professor Alexandre Lobo from the Faculty of Business and Law (FBL) at USJ was Registration Chair.

The conference included a keynote lecture, presentations, workshops, discussions, and the best papers award. More than 100 participants from across the world took part, with 70 papers presented and two workshops conducted, which were received enthusiastically by those present.

Professor Keith Morrison confirmed the significance of hybrid developments in computer and information science for improving society in his opening remarks.

Staff from USJ co-authored two papers with two teams of researchers: ‘Object Detection based on Convolutional DCGAN and CNN Deep Learning Architectures in Blood Smears Images’ and ‘Noise Detection and Classification in Chagasic ECG Signals based on One-Dimensional Convolutional Neural Networks.

Two prizes were awarded for the best papers received; one of these went to Dr. Shengbin Liang, a postdoc researcher at IDEAS of USJ, for his joint paper on ‘A model of Integrating Bert and BiGRU+ Attention Dual-Channel Mechanism for Investor Sentiment Analysis of Stock Price Forecast’, co-authored with Huawei Ma, Jixin Ma and Zhang En.

In closing the conference, Professor Morrison noted that the challenge was to ensure that those ideas and developments that had been learned at the conference were turned into consequent actions and that the application of computer and information science was poised to make a profound contribution to business, community, and governments.
