Jean-Luc DUGELAY
IEEE Distinguished Lecturer Programme (DLP) Speaker
Professor, EURECOM
Fellow, IEEE


Jean-Luc Dugelay received his PhD in Information Technology from the University of Rennes in 1992. His thesis work was undertaken at CCETT (France Télécom Research) at Rennes between 1989 and 1992. He then joined EURECOM in Sophia Antipolis, where he is now a Professor in the Department of Multimedia Communications. His current work focuses in the domain of multimedia image processing, in particular activities in security (image forensics, biometrics and video surveillance, mini drones), and facial image processing. He has authored or co-authored over 300 publications in journals and conference proceedings, 1 book on “3D Object Processing: Compression, Indexing and Watermarking” by Wiley, 2008, 5 book chapters and 3 international patents. His research group is involved in several national projects and European projects. Prof. Dugelay is a Fellow of the IEEE.  He is currently the Regional Director-at-Large of IEEE SP R8 (Europe, Middle East and Africa). He has delivered several tutorials on digital watermarking, biometrics and compression at major international conferences, such as ACM Multimedia and IEEE ICASSP. He participated in numerous scientific events as a member of the scientific technical committees, invited speakers or session chair. He is an elected member of the EURASIP Board of Governors. He is/was Associate Editor of several international journals, such as IEEE Transactions on Image Processing and IEEE Transactions on Multimedia; Founding Editor-in-Chief, EURASIP Journal on Image and Video Processing (SpringerOpen); Member, SPS Image, Video, and Multidimensional Signal Processing Technical Committee (2002-07), SPS Multimedia Technical Committee (1999-2003 and 2005-08), and SPS Information Forensics and Security Technical Committee (2010-12); Co-author of several conference articles that received an IEEE award in 2011, 2012 and 2013; Co-organizer, Workshop on Multimedia Signal Processing (Cannes, 2001) and the 2003 Multimodal User Authentication (Santa Barbara, 2003). In 2015, he will serve as General Co-Chair, IEEE ICIP (Québec City) and EURASIP EUSIPCO (Nice). Webpage: http://www.eurecom.fr/~dugelay



"Bag of Visual Soft Biometrics for Person Identification: New Trends and Challenges"

Abstract: In this talk we seek to provide insight on the general topic of visual soft biometrics (gender, age, ethnicity, etc.). First, we present a new refined definition of soft biometrics, emphasizing on the aspect of human compliance, and then proceed to identify candidate traits that accept this novel definition. Second, we introduce some image processing techniques related to the estimation of some traits (weight, color of clothes, make-up, age and gender). Third, we address relations between traits and discuss associated benefits and limitations of these traits. We consider a new application, namely human identification solely carried out by a bag of facial, body and accessory soft biometric traits, and as an evidence of its practicality, we provide preliminary promising results. Finally, we conclude our presentation by some of our on-going activities in the domain of facial aesthetics based on facial soft biometric traits.

Professor & Director of  Le2i (UMR CNRS),
University Bourgogne Franche-Comté, France



Fabrice MERIAUDEAU was born in Villeurbanne, France, on March 18, 1971. He received both the master degree in physics at Dijon University, France as well as an Engineering Degree (FIRST) in material sciences in 1994. He also obtained a Ph.D. in image processing at the same University in 1997. He was a postdoc for a year at The Oak Ridge National Laboratory. He is currently “Professeur des Universités” and Director of the Le2i (UMR CNRS), which has more than 200 staff members. His research interests were focused on image processing for non-conventional imaging systems (UV, IR, polarization…) and more recently on medical/biomedical imaging. He has coordinated an Erasmus Mundus Master in the field of Computer Vision and Robotics from 2006 to 2010 and he was the Vice President for International Affairs for the University of Burgundy from 2010 to 2012. He has authored and co-authored more than 150 international publications and holds three patents.



"Computer Aided Diagnosis for Retina Related Diseases"

Abstract: Diabetic retinopathy, Age-related macular degeneration as well as glaucoma are the main retinal diseases. Suffering from these can lead to blindness and their progression in developed and developing countries raises high concerns. Therefore, effective and early diagnosis and treatment are highly desired. Currently, retinal medical imaging is one of the main diagnostic means for eye diseases. This talk will address the latest Computer Aided Diagnosis techniques applied to fundus images as well as to spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) for the screening of the aforementioned diseases. It will cover the basis of preprocessing to machine learning with approaches based on Bag of Features, Bag of Word, vessel segmentation as well as atlas segmentation.
