Prof. Enrico Gobbetti – Director of Visual and Data-intensive Computing, CRS4, Italy

Title : Reflections on creating and exploring reality-based models

Abstract : The last decade has seen impressive advances in computer vision, computer graphics, and user interface methods and technologies for creating and exploring 3D digital replicas of real-world objects and environments that meet application-related constraints. In this talk, I will reflect on the successes, limitations, and challenges of current research, with particular emphasis on the domain of indoor reconstruction. I will also lay out research opportunities lying ahead (or behind us).

Bio : Enrico Gobbetti is the director of Visual and Data-intensive Computing at the Center for Advanced Studies, Research, and Development in Sardinia (CRS4), Italy. He holds an Engineering degree (1989) and a Ph.D. degree (1993) in Computer Science from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL). At CRS4, Enrico develops and manages a research program in visual and data-intensive computing supported through institutional, industrial and government grants, including many national and international projects. His research spans many areas of visual and data-intensive computing and is widely published in major journals and conferences. The primary focus is the creation of innovative solutions for the acquisition, creation, processing, distribution and exploration of complex and/or massive real or simulated objects and environments. He regularly serves the scientific community through participation in editorial boards, conference committees, working groups and steering boards, as well as through the organization and chairing of conferences. He is a Fellow of the Eurographics Association.
