BS Information Technology faculty Manuel B. Garcia presented four researches at the said conference. Two of his researches were entitled “Human-Library Interaction: A Self-Service Library Management System Using Sequential Multimodal Interface” and “Plan-Cook-Eat: A Meal Planner App with Optimal Macronutrient Distribution of Calories Based on Personal Total Daily Energy Expenditure.”
Also included were papers co-authored with fellow faculty members namely “VITAL APP: Development and User Acceptability of an IoT-Based Patient Monitoring Device for Synchronous Measurements of Vital Signs” with Director of Computer Engineering Moises F. Jardiniano and Assistant Program Director for CpE Nino U. Pilueta; and “Tomayto, Tomahto: A Machine Learning Approach for Tomato Ripening Stage Identification Using Pixel-Based Color Image Classification” with Director of Computer Science Shaneth Ambat and Senior Director for Computer Studies Rossana T. Adao.
Coordinator for Information Technology Ms. Maria Rona L Perez presented a research entitled “Suitability of IoT to Blockchain Network based on Consensus Algorithm”, co-authored by Dr. Roman De Angel, John Benedict C. Legaspi, Dr. Kirk Alvin S. Awat and Dr. Ace C. Lagman. Abraham T. Magpantay, full-time faculty of Computer Science, also presented his paper on Baybayin entitled “BAYT: A Baybayin Transliteration Application which was co-authored by Raymond Dacasin, Jessa Mae Losa and Corinne Songco.

Moving on, Engr. Irister M. Javel of the EEE Department also presented two researches at HNICEM 2019. These included “Epileptic Seizure Detection via EEG using Tree-based Pipeline Optimization Tool” with co-authors Antipas T. Teologo Jr., Rodolfo C. Salvador Jr., Elmer P. Dadios, Ryan Rhay P. Vicerra, and “A Pulsar Classification Model with Genetic Algorithm Implementation for Best Pipeline Selection and Hyperparameters Optimization” with co-authors Rodolfo C. Salvador Jr., Antipas T. Teologo Jr., and Elmer P. Dadios.
Hailing from the same department, Dr. Pocholo James Loresco presented his research “An Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Inference System Approach for Identifying Breakpoint Set for Directional Overcurrent Relays” in the said conference too. This research was co-authored with Engr. Mark Anthony Teodoro and Engr. Maria Angelica C. Gorospe.
On the other hand, Engr. Nolan Concha of the Civil Engineering program also presented his research entitled “Bond Stress Model of Deformed Bars in High-strength Concrete”. Joining him were two professors from the Mechanical Engineering Department namely Diana Rose T. Rivera (The Environmental Performance of Torrefied Microalgae Biomass using Torrefaction Severity Factor) and Engr. Ivan Henderson V. Gue (Design and Evaluation of a Mango Solar Dryer with Thermal Energy Storage and Recirculated Air).
Engineering topnotchers also shared their expertise in the said forum. 2015 Electrical Engineering Licensure Exam Topnotcher Engr. Mark Anthony G. Teodoro presented his research “Wireless Sensor Network with Compressive Sensing based on Bayesian Framework applied in Greenhouse Monitoring System”, co-authored by Roselle B. Anire-Teodoro.
In addition, April 2019 ECE Licensure Exam Topnotchers Engr. Juan Miguel H. Villarroel (co-authored by Engr. Jomar B. Calauod,Ma. Editha A. Grande, King Harold A. Recto, and Ronald M. Pascual, Ph. D.) and Engr. Rex Paolo C. Gamara (co-authored by Dr. Pocholo James M. Loresco and Dr. Romano Q. Neyra) presented their researches “Developing a Computer-Aided Pangasinense Language Learning System” and “Artificial Neural Network-Based Decision Support for Shrimp Feed Type Classification” respectively.
Congratulations for a job well done, iTamaraws!
