Philippe Salembier

Biography

Philippe Salembier received an engineering degree from the Ecole Polytechnique, Paris, France, in 1983 and an engineering degree from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications, Paris, France, in 1985. From 1985 to 1989, he worked at Laboratoires d'Electronique Philips, Limeil-Brevannes, France, in the fields of digital communications and signal processing for HDTV. In 1989, he joined the Signal Processing Laboratory of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, Switzerland, to work on image processing and received a PhD in 1991. At the beginning of 1992, after a stay at the Harvard Robotics Laboratory as a Postdoctoral Fellow, he joined the Technical University of Catalonia, Barcelona, Spain, where he is currently professor lecturing on the area of digital signal and image processing.

His research interests include image and video sequence processing, compression and indexing, mathematical morphology, level sets and nonlinear filtering, as well as remote sensing image processing and signal processing tools for genomics. In terms of standardization activities, he has been involved in the definition of the MPEG-7 standard ("Multimedia Content Description Interface") as chair of the "Multimedia Description Scheme" group between 1999 and 2001.

He served as a Associate Editor of various journals including the Journal of Visual Communication and Image Representation (Academic Press), Signal Processing (Elsevier), Signal Processing: Image Communication (Elsevier), the Eurasip Journal on Image and Video Processing, the IEEE Transactions on Image Processing, the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology and the IEEE Signal Processing Letters. He was member of the Image and Multidimensional Signal Processing Technical Committee of the IEEE Signal Processing Society between 2000-2006, an AdCom officer of the European Association for Signal Processing (EURASIP) between 1994-1999 and was technical chair (with Prof. Ed. Delp) of the IEEE Int. Conf. on Image Processing, ICIP'2003 organized in Barcelona. Philippe Salembier is a Fellow of the IEEE.
