Antonis Argyros 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 in Computer Science (1989) and a M.Sc. degree in Computer Science (1992), both from the Computer Science Department, University of Crete. On July 1996, he completed his Ph.D. on visual motion analysis at the same Department. He has been a postdoctoral fellow at the Computational Vision and Active Perception Laboratory (CVAP) at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden. Since 1999, as a member of the Computational Vision and Robotics Laboratory (CVRL) of FORTH-ICS, he has been involved in many RTD projects in computer vision, pattern recognition, image analysis and robotics. In these areas he has published more than 150 papers in scientific journals and refereed conference proceedings. 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.
Antonis Argyros has served as a general co-chair of ECCV 2010, as an Area Chair for ECCV 2016, BMVC 2017 and BMVC 2018, as a co-organizer of HANDS 2015 and HANDS 2017, as an Associate Editor for ICPR 2018, IEEE ICRA 2016, ICRA 2017, ICRA 2018, IEEE/RSJ IROS 2016, IROS 2017, IROS 2018 and as an Area Editor of EUSIPCO 2017. He also serves as an Area Editor for the Computer Vision and Image Understanding Journal (CVIU), as a member of the Editorial Board of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Letters journal, as a member of the Advisory Board of the IET Image Processing journal and as a regular reviewer in several major conferences in computer vision, computer graphics, robotics and related disciplines. Antonis Argyros is a faculty member of the Brain and Mind interdisciplinary graduate program. He also serves as a Deputy Member of the Board of Directors of the European Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics (ERCIM) and as a member of its Strategy Task Group.
