Brief Curriculum Vitae

Vera Kurkova received Ph.D. in topology from Charles University, Prague in 1980 and DrSc (equiv. Prof.) in 1999. Since 1990, she has been a scientist with the Institute of Computer Science, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. From 2002 to 2008, she was the Head of the Department of Theoretical Computer Science. Her research interests include distributed computing, machine learning, inverse problems, mathematical theory of neurocomputing, nonlinear approximation and optimization. She published over 100 research articles. Her h–index =13 and her work has over WOS 600 citations. She is an associate editor of the journals Neural Networks, Neural Processing Letters, and in 2008–2009 also of IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks. She is a member of the Board of the European Neural Networks Society and was the general Chair of conferences ICANNGA 2001 and ICANN 2008. In 2010 she was awarded by the Czech Academy of Sciences the Bolzano Medal for her contributions to mathematics.
