His lectures included following categories: introduction to pattern recognition, classification methods and its application in remote sensing, and the application of the projection space in the conversion of Two-dimensional space and three-dimensional space. These effective lectures stimulated lively discussion among audiences.
Prof. Jean Sequeira taught computer science from 1979 to 1981 in an engineering school of Ivory Coast (at the ENSTP, Yamoussoukro). From 1981 to 1991, he had been the manager of projects on 3D medical imaging at IBM Paris Scientific Center and he participated to the development of the IBM 5080 graphics workstation (1983 – Kingston, New York State).

In 1994, he created a research group on “Image Analysis and Computer Graphics” and then, in 2001, he participated to the creation of the LSIS Laboratory (Laboratoire des Sciences de l’Information et des Systèmes). Within LSIS Laboratory, he is in charge of the SimGraph research group that deals with “Image Fusion”, “Image Analysis and Simulation”. He is the author of more than 110 papers, organizer of international conferences, scientific committee member of many journals and international conferences. He is also a “Senior Member” of the IEEE, and the Scientific Director of 20 PhD research programs.
