Cristani Marco is assistant professor since 2007 at the Università degli Studi di Verona, Department of Computer Science, where he teaches different courses of Computer Science and Bioinformatics and does research within the VIsion, Processing and Sound lab (VIPS), where he also has coordination duties. Since 2009 is Team Leader at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, Genova, Italy, where he coordinates the research and development activity of around ten elements (PhD students, Post-Docs).
From January 2006 to September 2007 he has been Assegnista di Ricerca at the University of Verona, Department of Computer Science. The title of the research mission was “Generative and discriminative models for the classification and clustering of data”.
From January 2003 to December 2005 he attended the XVIII cycle of the PhD in Computer science at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Verona, which ended with the defense of the PhD thesis in date 04/21/2006. In the second half of 2002, quickly after the attainment of the Master Degree in Computer Science, he participated to a research activity under a COCOCO grant titled “Development of probabilistic techniques for the reconstruction of underwater scenes” with the lab of Vision, Image Processing and Sound (VIPS), Department of Computer Science, University of Verona.
Moreover, since 2002, has carried out teaching activity with the Department of Computer Science of the University of Verona, with the Faculty of Letters and Philosophy and with the Medicine Faculty of the University of Verona.
Dr. Cristani has been scientific collaborator of national and European projects on various scientific fields, such as ARROV (Augmented Reality for Remotely Operated Vehicles based on 3D acoustical and optical sensors for underwater inspection and survey, grant n. GRD1-2000-25409), SAMURAI (Suspicious and Abnormal behaviour Monitoring Using to netwoRk of cAmeras & sensors for sItuation awareness enhancement), granted by the European Commission within the 7° Quadro Program, and SIMBAD (Beyond Features: Similarity-Based Pattern Analysis and Recognition) financed from the European Commission within the 7th Framework, FET Open.
His research interests regard the classification and the recognition applied to problems of computational vision, in particular probabilistic techniques for the image processing and video, applied to to video surveillance, social signal processing, bioinformatics and to the analysis of biomedical images.
His activity comprehends a collaboration during the period of 2004-May November 2005 under the “Internationally Co PhD Program in Science Computer with specialization in Computer Vision, Pattern Recognition, and Image Processing” program with the Computer Vision Lab, Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Systems School of Engineering (IRIS), University of Southern California, Los Angeles, California, US, under the supervision of prof. Gerard Medioni and prof. Ram Nevatia. During the period of October 2001-January 2002 he carried out a research stage under of the Socrates-Erasmus program with the department of Electrical engineering at the Instituto Superior Tecnico of Lisbona, Portugal, under the supervision of prof. Mario Figueiredo. In such period it has developed part of the Master thesis. Currently, he does research activity with more than ten prestigious research centers and university, such as Microsoft, Queen Mary University of London, Massachussett Institute of Technology, ETH Zurich, University of Glasgow, Istituto Superior Tecnico (Lisboa), with frequent interchange activities.
Dr. Cristani is co-author of around 100 papers on important international journals and conferences (as IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence, IEEE Transactions on Multimedia,Pattern Recognition, Pattern Recognition Letters, International Conference on Computer Vision, European Conference on Computer Vision, International Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition, Advances in Neural Information Processing Systems), and he is reviewer for numerous international journals (IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence, IEEE Transactions on Image Processing, IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology IEEE Transactions on Multimedia Pattern Recognition, Pattern Recognition Letters, Image Vision and Computing, Machine Vision and Applications Journal, ELCVIA, Electronic Letters on Computer Vision and Image Analysis, IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics – Part B, Pattern Recognition, Sensors, Signal Processing Letters, International Journal of Pattern Recognition and Artificial Intelligence, Journal of Computer Science and Technology(JCST)) and conferences (ACCV, ECCV, ICPR, ICIP and many others).
He is in the technical program committee of social signalling, pattern recognition conferences (Interhub 2011, Social Behavior Analysis workshop 2011, SMC 2011, SocialCom 2011, Mobile HCI 2010,PRAI4HBA 2009, ICPR2010, CISP’10-BMEI’10, MSSP2010, SBA2011, AISP 2011) and organizer of social signalling/video surveillance events (IEEE International Workshop on Socially Intelligent Surveillance and Monitoring (SISM 2012, SISM 2011, SISM 2010), workshop in conjunction with CVPR (2010,2012) and ICCV (2011), MPVA 2010: ACM Workshop on Multimodal Pervasive Video Analysis, workshop in conjuction with ACM MM 2010, PLUS-VIPS Summer School 2010). He also organized several PhD schools (1st-9th VIPS Advanced School on Computer Vision, Pattern Recognition and Image Processing). He is invited speaker of international conferences and schools of video surveillance and social signal processing (Short Spring School in Surveillance S4 2011, Measuring Behavior 2012).
Finally, dr. Cristani is also member of the IEEE, ACM and of the IAPR.
