Biography:
Lawrence Hall is a Distinguished University Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at University of South Florida (USF). He received his PhD in Computer Science from the Florida State University in 1986 and his BS in Applied Mathematics from the Florida Institute of Technology in 1980. Hall has authored over 190 publications in journals, conferences, and books. Recent publications appear in Pattern Recognition, IEEE Access, IEEE Transactions on Fuzzy Systems, and the International Conference on Pattern Recognition.

Hall has received funding from the National Institutes of Health, NASA, DOE, National Science Foundation and others. He is a fellow of the IEEE and a fellow of the AAAS and IAPR. He received the Norbert Wiener award in 2012 from the IEEE SMC Society. Hall's research interests lie in distributed machine learning, extreme data mining, bioinformatics, pattern recognition and integrating AI into image processing. The exploitation of imprecision with the use of fuzzy logic in pattern recognition, AI and learning is a research theme.

Hall received the IEEE SMC Society Outstanding contribution award in 2008 and an Outstanding Research achievement award from USF in 2004. He was past president of NAFIPS, former vice president for membership of the SMC society, the president of the IEEE Systems, Man and Cybernetics society for 2006 - 2007 year. Hall was the Editor-In-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man and Cybernetics, Part B between 2002 - 2005. He served as the first Vice President for Publications of the IEEE Biometrics Council. He is currently on the IEEE Publications Services and Products Board and chairs its Strategic Planning Committee and the IEEE PCC for 2014 - 2015 year. He is a member of IEEE PRAC, and is on the Editorial board of IEEE Access, associate editor for IEEE Transactions on Fuzzy Systems, International Journal of Intelligent Data Analysis, the International Journal of Pattern Recognition and Artificial Intelligence and International Journal of Approximate Reasoning.
