Institute of Communication and Computer Systems - National Technical University of Athens

Greece

The Image, Video and Multimedia Systems Lab (IVML) of The Institute of Communication and Computer Systems (ICCS) at NTUA is a major well-resourced laboratory. The academic staff, headed by Prof. S. Kollias, includes two professors, six post-doctoral researchers, fifteen highly qualified engineers working for their Ph.D, administrative and technical support staff. The most important areas of R&D activities of IVML include:Intelligent Human Computer Interaction and Intelligent agents, Image and Video processing and analysis, Artificial neural network, fuzzy and neurofuzzy technologies , Face, Emotion and Biometric Analysis and Recognition, Natural - Synthetic Hybrid Coding / MPEG-4 standard, 3-D image analysis, reconstruction and visualization systems. IVML has been involved in 50 R&D projects. Twenty‑two (22) of them are/were funded by the European Union (under the framework of Eureka, Esprit (6), Race, Biomed-1, Telematics, G7, TMR, Educational Multimedia, HCM (2), Tempus (2), Inco-DC, Leonardo, IST (3). Forty four of them have finished, while six are in progress.
