Josep R. Casas


Josep R. Casas has been principal investigator of projects MuViPro and PROVEC (Plan Nacional de I+D+i, 2007-2014), and led or contributed to several European Framework Program projects (EUROfusion, FascinatE, ACTIBIO, CHIL, SCHEMA, ADViSOR) and industry-sponsored projects (VISION, HESPERIA, D'Ocon) since 1995. He was a visiting researcher at CSIRO in Canberra, Australia in 2001, and served as chair for the IEEE conferences ICASSP 2020 (Special Sessions) and ICIP 2003 (Finances Chair).

Josep's current research interests focus on multi-view analysis and representation from multiple sensor data: 3D reconstruction and analysis, model-based human motion analysis and gesture recognition. Applications are in the fields of human interaction and audio-visual communication.
