Professor of Computer Science
Marcello Pelillo is a Professor of Computer Science at the
University of Venice, Italy, where he directs the
European Centre for Living Technology
and leads the Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition group, which he founded in 1995.
He held visiting research positions at
Yale University (USA),
McGill University (Canada),
the University of Vienna (Austria),
York University (UK),
the University College London (UK), and the
National ICT Australia (NICTA) (Australia).
He serves (or has served) on the editorial boards of
IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence,
IET Computer Vision,
and is on the advisory board of the
International Journal of Machine Learning and Cybernetics.
He has initiated several conferences series as Program Chair (EMMCVPR, IWCV, SIMBAD) and will serve as a General Chair for ICCV 2017.
He is (or has been) scientific coordinator of several research projects, including
SIMBAD, a highly successful EU-FP7 project devoted to similarity-based pattern analysis and recognition.
Prof. Pelillo has been elected a Fellow of the IEEE
and a Fellow of the IAPR, and
