ABOUT / Prof. Bernt Schiele

Prof. Bernt Schiele (male) is director and head of the computer vision and multimodal computing group at the MPI for Informatics, and a Professor at Saarland University. His research focuses on high-level understanding of video and multimodal sensor data. Schiele’s group has made fundamental contributions both to computer vision (e.g. to the recognition of objects, one of the most fundamental problems in computer vision, or to the detection and tracking of people in arbitrary scenes) as well as to ubiquitous computing (e.g. to the recognition of human activities at multiple scales and time-duration). Dr. Schiele has coauthored more than 175 publications, many of which are published in the best journals and conferences of his field. Dr. Schiele has served on the program committees of all the leading international conferences both in the area of computer vision (multiple times area chair of ICCV, ECCV, CVPR) as well as in pervasive and ubiquitous computing (e.g. Ubicomp, Pervasive, ISWC). He co-chaired the program committees of several of these leading conferences including Pervasive’06, ISWC’07, ICCV’11 and ECCV’14. Dr. Schiele serves on the editorial board of several leading journals in his research fields including the International Journal on Computer Vision, IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence, and IEEE Pervasive Computing.
