Jordi GonzàlezUniversitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain (poal@cvc.uab.es)
Dr. Jordi Gonzàlez completed his PhD in Computer Engineering in 2004 at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB). At present, he is Associate Professor in Computer Science and responsible of doctoral studies at the Computer Science Department, UAB. He is also a research fellow at the Computer Vision Center. The topic of his research is the cognitive evaluation of human behaviours in image sequences, or video-hermeneutics. The aim is the generation of both linguistic and visual descriptions, which best explain those behaviours observed in imagery streams.
Dr. Jordi Gonzàlez co-organized the first and second international THEMIS workshops, and the 1st ARTEMIS workshop. He was member of the Workshop Chair and Local Arrangement Chair at ICCV2011; Publicity Chair at AVSS2011; and Tutorial Chair at ibPRIA2011.
