Gérard Medioni received the Diplôme d'Ingéieur Civil from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications, Paris, France, in 1977, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science from the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, in 1980 and 1983, respectively. He has been with the University of Southern California (USC) in Los Angeles, since 1983, where he is currently a Professor of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering. His research interests cover a broad spectrum of the computer vision field, and he has studied techniques for edge detection, perceptual grouping, shape description, stereo analysis, range image understanding, image to map correspondence, object recognition, and image sequence analysis. He has published over 100 papers in conference proceedings and journals.
He has served on program committees of many major vision conferences, and was program co-chairman of the IEEE Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition Conference in 1991, program co-chairman of the IEEE Symposium on Computer Vision held in Coral Gables, Florida, in November 1995, general co-chair of the IEEE Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition Conference in 1997 in Puerto Rico, and program co-chair of the International Conference on Pattern Recognition held in Brisbane, Australia, in August 1998. Dr. Medioni is associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence journal, and of the Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis journal. He is also one of the North American editors for the Image and Vision Computing journal.
