Professional Highlights

Bio Andrea Cavallaro received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL), Lausanne, in 2002. He is Professor of Multimedia Signal Processing, Director of the Centre for Intelligent Sensing and Director of Research in the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science at Queen Mary University of London, UK. He was a Research Fellow with British Telecommunications (BT) in 2004/2005 and was awarded the Royal Academy of Engineering teaching Prize in 2007; three student paper awards on target tracking and perceptually sensitive coding at IEEE ICASSP in 2005, 2007 and 2009; and the best paper award at IEEE AVSS 2009.

Professor Cavallaro is Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Image Processing, an elected member of the IEEE Signal Processing Society, Image, Video, and Multidimensional Signal Processing Technical Committee, and chairs its Awards committee. He served as an elected member of the IEEE Signal Processing Society, Multimedia Signal Processing Technical Committee, as Area Editor for the IEEE Signal Processing Magazine, as Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Multimedia, the IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing and the IEEE Signal Processing Magazine, and as Guest Editor for eight international journals.

Professor Cavallaro was General Chair for IEEE/ACM ICDSC 2009, BMVC 2009, M2SFA2 2008, SSPE 2007, and IEEE AVSS 2007 and Technical Program chair of IEEE AVSS 2011, the European Signal Processing Conference (EUSIPCO 2008) and of WIAMIS 2010. He has published more than 160 journal and conference papers, one monograph on Video tracking (2011,Wiley) and three edited books: Multi-camera networks (2009, Elsevier); Analysis, retrieval and delivery of multimedia content (2012, Springer); and Intelligent multimedia surveillance (2013, Springer).
