He is currently a full professor of Statistics at the Department of Mathematics of University Jaume I of Castellon, where he has worked for the past 20 years. His main fields of interest are stochastic processes in their wide sense with a particular focus on spatial and spatio-temporal point processes and geostatistics. He has published more than 200 papers in peer-reviewed international journals, and he is co-author of several proceedings and research books. He has organised several international conferences with a focus on modelling space-time processes, and leads the organising committee of a series of biannual conferences (called METMA, ten by now) co-sponsorised by TIES, for which he was also Secretary.
He currently sits on the editorial boards of Spatial Statistics, Journal of the Royal Statistical Society (series C), Journal of Environmental Statistics, Stochastic Environmental Research and Risk Assessment, Environmetrics, and Journal of Agricultural, Biological, and Environmental Statistics.
Prof. Mateu is also director of the Unit "Statistical Modelling of Crime Data", based in the Department of Mathematics, University Jaume I of Castellon, and he is co-director of the Erasmus Mundus Master in Geospatial Technologies, funded by the European Commission. Prof. Mateu has held several large grants, and has supervised over 20 PhD students. The research experience covers topics such as latent variables, spatial and spatio-temporal modelling, and also networks and trajectory-based data.
Professor Alfred Stein
University of Twente, The Netherlands
Prof. dr. ir. Alfred Stein (1958) is professor in Spatial Statistics and Image Analysis. He received his MSc in mathematics and information science, with a specialization in applied statistics from Eindhoven University of Technology. He obtained a PhD in 1991 at Wageningen University on spatial statistics.

He started his career at the soil science and geology department of Wageningen university. In 1995 he was appointed a visiting professor at the Faculty ITC, in the soils department. In 1999 this changed to the department of spatial data acquisition.
In 2000 he was appointed a professor at the chair of mathematical and statistical models in Wageningen university (0.2) and in 2002 he became a 0.8 professor at the new department of Earth Observation Science at ITC, which he has headed for more than 10 years. In 2008 he became vice-rector research of the institute, a position that he had for four years. This was followed in 2012 by a position as portfolio holder education of the management team of the faculty.
His research interests focus on statistical aspects of spatial and spatio-temporal data, like monitoring data, in the widest sense. Optimal sampling, image analysis, spatial statistics, use of prior information, but also issues of data quality, fuzzy techniques, random sets, all in a Bayesian setting.
