Vittorio Murino is full professor at the University of Verona, Italy, and director of the PAVIS (Pattern Analysis and Computer Vision) department at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia. He took the Laurea degree in Electronic Engineering in 1989 and the Ph.D. in Electronic Engineering and Computer Science in 1993 at the University of Genova, Italy.
He held a post-doctoral position from 1993 to 1995, working in the Signal Processing and Understanding Group of the Dept. of Biophysical and Electronic Engineering of the University of Genova as supervisor of research activities on image processing for object recognition and pattern classification in underwater environments. From 1995 to 1998, he was assistant professor at the Dept. of Mathematics and Computer Science of the University of Udine, Italy, and since 1998 he works at the University of Verona. He was chairman of the Department of Computer Science from 2001, year of foundation, to 2007, and coordinator of the Ph.D. program in Computer Science in the same university from 1999 to 2003. Prof. Murino is scientific responsible of several national and European projects, and evaluator of EU project proposals related to several frameworks and programs.
Currently, he is working at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia in Genova, Italy, to set up and lead the PAVIS department involved in computer vision, machine learning, and image analysis.
His main research interests include: computer vision and pattern recognition/machine learning, in particular, probabilistic techniques for image and video processing, with applications on video surveillance, biomedical image analysis and bioinformatics.
Prof. Murino is co-author of more than 400 papers published in refereed journals and international conferences, reviewer for several international journals, and member of the technical committees of important conferences (CVPR, ICCV, ECCV, ICPR, ICIP and others), and guest co-editor of special issues in relevant scientific journals.
He is also member of the editorial board of Pattern Recognition, Pattern Analysis and Applications, and Machine Vision & Applications journals, as well as of the IEEE Transactions on Cybernetics.
Finally, prof. Murino is senior member of the IEEE and Fellow of the IAPR.
