Marc Chaumont was born in November 1976, in France. He received my Engineer Diploma in Computer Sciences at the INSA (National Institute of Applied Sciences) of Rennes, France in 1999 and his Ph.D. in Computer Sciences at the IRISA Rennes (INRIA, CNRS, University of Rennes 2, and INSA) in 2003. His Ph.D. thesis was about video object representations, with dynamic coding and scalability functionalities, in the video compression area. He has carried on for one year my research activity at the INRIA Rennes and for one another year at the University Technological Institute of Bayonne, France as a Visiting Assistant Professor. During this last year, he focused on face tracking using a deformable 3D face model.
Since September 2005, he is Assistant Professor in the LIRMM (Laboratory of Computer Science, Robotic and Microelectronic) of Montpellier and the University of Nîmes. His current interest areas are multimedia security (steganography, watermarking, digital forensics, video & image compression), segmentation, and tracking in videos. He passed its last diploma, the "HDR" (Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches) in 2013. He has published in more than 40 conference papers, 8 journal papers, and 4 open-access book chapters. He is a member of the IEEE Signal Processing - Information Forencisc Security - Technical Committee since 2015. He is in the International Advisory Committee of the open-access journal International Image Processing and Visual Communication (IJIPVC).
He is a reviewer for more than 20 journals (IEEE Transaction on Image Forensics and Security, IEEE Transaction on Image Processing, IEEE Signal Processing Letters, IS&T Journal of Electronic Imaging, ELSEVIER Digital Signal Processing, IET Information Security Journal, EURASIP Journal On Information Security ...) and for more than 10 conferences (IEEE ICIP, IEEE WIFS, ACM IH&MMSec, Electronic Imaging, EUSIPCO, IWDW,...). Additionally, he is co-responsible of the Computer Science part for the license "Mathematique" of the Nîmes University since September 2009. He is president of the jury of the L3, and a member of the jury of L1 and L2. He is responsible of 5 teaching modules. He was a member of the Scientific council from the University of Nîmes from 2011 to 2012, a member of the expert pool of Montpellier from 2008 to 2013. He was a member the Scientific council of the LIRMM from 2014 to 2015. He participated in two ANR projects, from 2005 to 2011. He has co-supervised six thesis, and at the moment he is the supervisor of four PhD students. He also has supervised 21 MSc. students.
