Maria Chiara Caschera obtained an M.S. degree in computer science engineering at the University of Rome ‘La Sapienza’ in 2005 and a Ph.D. in computer science and automation at the University ‘Roma Tre’ in 2009. Currently, she is a Researcher at the National Research Council (CNR), Institute for Research on Population and Social Policies (IRPPS) in Rome. Her research interests are mainly focused on human-machine interaction, multimodal Interaction, ambiguity, social networks, emotion and sentiment analysis, knowledge management and innovation, fake news detection, social informatics, co-design methods, and collaborative and co-creative and participative approaches. She is the author of more than 60 papers in international journals, conferences, and books. She has organized several international workshops and special issues as a guest editor in international journals.  She is Associate Editor for IEEE Access (ISSN 2169-3536), Guest Associate Editor for Pattern Recognition – Frontiers in Artificial Intelligence (ISSN 2624-8212), Topic Editor for Frontiers in Artificial Intelligence (ISSN 2624-8212) and for Frontiers in Computer Science (ISSN 2624-9898), Review Editor for AI for Human Learning and Behavior Change – Frontiers in Artificial Intelligence (ISSN 2624-8212), member of the editorial board of the International Journal of Advances in Applied Sciences (IJAAS), (ISSN 2252-8814) and TELKOMNIKA (Telecommunication, Computing, Electronics and Control) (ISSN: 1693-6930). She is involved as a reviewer of several international journals (e.g. IEEE Access, Multimedia Tools And Applications (MTAP), IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man and Cybernetics: Systems (SMCA), Human-centric Computing and Information Sciences (HCIS), IAES International Journal of Artificial Intelligence (IJ-AI), IAES International Journal of Robotics and Automation (IJRA), International Journal of Electrical and Computer Engineering (IJECE), and several MDPI journals, Expert Systems, Pervasive Computing and Communications (IJPCC), International Journal of Computing and Digital Systems(IJCDS), Journal of Next Generation Information Technology (JNIT), International Journal of Innovation and Regional Development (IJIRD), International Journal of Intercultural Information Management (IJIIM), Journal of Innovation in Digital Ecosystems (JIDES), etc.). She is a member of several program committees of international workshops and conferences. She is a scientific reviewer for several PRIN, FCS-H2020 PON, Accordo Innovazione, and Agenda Digitale FRI projects. From 2005 to now, she has participated in more than 20 European and national projects.
