Antonis Argyros (Αντώνης Αργυρός) is a Professor of Computer Science at the Computer Science Department (CSD), University of Crete (UoC) and a researcher at the Institute of Computer Science (ICS), Foundation for Research and Technology-Hellas (FORTH) in Heraklion, Crete, Greece. He received a B.Sc. degree (1989), an M.Sc. degree (1992) and a Ph.D. degree (1996) in Computer Science from CSD-UoC. He has been a postdoctoral fellow at the Computational Vision and Active Perception Laboratory at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm, Sweden. Since 1999, as a member of the Computational Vision and Robotics Laboratory (CVRL) of ICS-FORTH, he has been involved in several European and national RTD projects on computer vision, pattern recognition, image analysis and robotics. His current research interests fall in the areas of computer vision and pattern recognition, with emphasis on the analysis of humans in images and videos, human pose analysis, recognition of human activities and gestures, 3D computer vision, as well as image motion and tracking. He is also interested in applications of computer vision in the fields of robotics and smart environments. In these areas, he has published more than 160 papers in scientific journals and refereed conference proceedings and has also delivered serveral invited and keynote talks in international events, universities and research centers.
