Jean-Charles Pomerol, President since 2006

Jean-Charles Pomerol


Jean-Charles Pomerol, sixty-three, is professor of computer science at Université Pierre et Marie Curie of Paris.  He has held the posts of vice-president of sciences, vice-president of the university's scientific council and director of the department of industrial relations and technology transfer and is now Vice-chancellor of Pierre et Marie Curie university.

Between 1995 and 2000, he was project leader at the CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique; French national centre for scientific research), responsible for computer science, signal processing and automation. Prior to that, he was director of the UPMC UFR (Unité de Formation et de Recherche; teaching and research department) of computer science and for six years he was director of the CNRS-UPMC laboratory for artificial intelligence.

Jean-Charles Pomerol obtained an undergraduate teaching degree in mathematics in Paris in 1964 and passed the 'agrégation' (competitive examination for admission to the professoriat) in mathematics in 1968.  He completed his doctorate in mathematics and economics in 1973 and, in 1980, his doctorat d'Etat (post-doctoral degree) at Université Pierre et Marie Curie on the subject of convex analysis and optimisation.  He was a teacher at Lycée Saint-Quentin, an upper secondary school in the French département of Aisne, before becoming a lecturer at Université Versailles Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, then senior lecturer at UPMC and finally professor.

Jean-Charles Pomerol's early career was devoted to game theory and convex analysis.  Between 1974 and 1981, he published, independently or in collaboration with P. Levine and other colleagues and students, twenty-nine articles in the field of convex programming, including ten in international journals (SIAM Journal of Control, SIAM Review, Mathematical, Programming, Operations Research (ORSA), J. of Mathematical Analysis and Applications, Canadian Mathematical Bulletin, Archiv der Mathematik).
In the 80s, Jean-Charles Pomerol turned to computer science, particularly computer-assisted decision support and expert systems.  He played a role in the development of decision support systems including various operational research models and expert systems.  During this period, Jean-Charles Pomerol developed various concepts at the frontier of multi-criteria decision support and artificial intelligence.

He founded the Journal of Decision Systems in 1992 and remained the editor for ten years.  The journal's quarterly issues are devoted to computer-based decision support systems.  Jean-Charles Pomerol is the editor of Revue Française d’Intelligence Artificielle and a member of the editing team of Revue Française de Gestion.  He is also the computer science coordinator for the Traité des sciences de l’ingénieur (15 volumes have already been published on computer science and 150 on industrial automation and signal processing, Hermès-Science Editeur).
