Fabien Ringeval received the M.S. degree in speech and image signal processing from the Université Pierre et Marie Curie (UPMC), Paris, France, in 2006 and the Ph.D. degree for his researches on the automatic recognition of acted and spontaneous emotions from speech in 2011, from the same university. 

He is Associate Professor in the team GETALP at the Laboratoire d'Informatique de Grenoble (LIG), CNRS, Université Grenoble Alpes, France, since 2016. Dr. Ringeval is also a senior researcher at audEERING GmbH since 2016. Previously, he was with the Institute of Intelligent Systems and Robotics (ISIR), Université Pierre et Marie Curie, France, from 2006 to 2011, with the Man-Machine-Communication institute (MMK), at the Technische Universität München (TUM), Germany, in 2011, with the DIVA group, at the Université de Fribourg, Switzerland, from 2011 to 2013, with the MISP group at TUM, Germany, from 2013 to 2014, and with the Chair of Complex and Intelligent Systems (CIS) at Universität Passau, Germany, from 2014 to 2016.

His research interests concern digital signal processing and machine learning, with applications on the automatic recognition of paralinguistic information (e.g., emotions, social and atypical behaviours) from multimodal data (e.g., audio, video and physiological signals), at the cross-road of computer sciences and human behaviour understanding. To pursue his research on computational paralinguistics, he created the Child Pathological Speech Database (CPSD), and the REmote COLlaborative and Affective interactions (RECOLA) database, in close collaboration with clinicians and psychologists, and developed algorithms to retrieve biological markers of human behaviours from multimodal data.

Dr. Ringeval (co-)authored more than 60 publications in peer-reviewed books, journals and conference proceedings in the field leading to more than 1,100 citations (h-index = 15). He co-organised workshops and international challenges, including the INTERSPEECH 2013 ComParE challenge, the Alpine Rendez-vous (ARV) 2013 Workshop on Tools and Technologies for Emotion Awareness in Computer-Mediated Collaboration and Learning, and the International Audio/Visual Emotion Challenge and Workshop (AVEC) series since 2015. 

He serves as Grand Challenge Chair for the 20th ACM International Conference on Multimodal Interaction (ICMI 2018), Publication Chair for the 7th AAAC International Conference on Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction 2017 (ACII 2017)as a reviewer for funding and projects (ANR, NSERC), as well as several IEEE journals and other leading international journals, conferences and workshops in the field, and is a member of different scientific societies (IEEE, SIGMM, AAAC, ISCA).
