Luc Van Gool

Professor Computer Vision
Luc Van Gool got a degree in electro-mechanical engineering at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in '81. Currently, he is a full professor for Computer Vision at the ETH in Zurich and the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in Belgium. He leads research and teaches at both places. He has authored over 200 papers in his field. He has been a program committee member of several, major computer vision conferences (e.g. Program Chair ICCV'05, Beijing, and General Chair of ICCV'11, Barcelona, and of ECCV'14, Zurich). His main interests include 3D reconstruction and modeling, object recognition, and tracking and gesture analysis. He received several Best Paper awards (eg. David Marr Prize '98, Best Paper CVPR'07, Tsuji Outstanding Paper Award ACCV'09, Best Vision Paper ICRA'09). He is a co-founder of 5 spin-off companies.

Computer Vision Laboratory, ETH Zurich & Toyota

The Computer Vision Laboratory, ETH Zurich, works on the computer-based interpretation of 2D and 3D image data sets from conventional and non-conventional image sources. The computer vision lab performs research in the fields of Medical Image Analysis and Visualization, Object Recognition, Gesture Analysis, Tracking, and Scene Understanding and Modeling We treat the complete cycle from signals to their interpretation, and to the resulting action. It is our objective to develop universal concepts and methods. In order to meet these challenges, we want to keep our finger at the pulse of international, ongoing research. Therefore, we operate in the context of many collaborations with other labs, like the CO-ME and IM2 Swiss competence centers (NCCR), and many European projects. This said, it simultaneously is our strategy to let difficult, real-world applications drive our research and development. We see collaboration with industry as an important plus for an engineering lab like ours. The groups in CVL are led by Prof. Luc Van Gool, Prof. Gabor Székely, Prof. Ender Konukoglu and Prof. Orçun Göksel.
