Experience: Roman Pflugfelder holds the position of a scientist at the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology and is a lecturer in the computer science department at the Vienna University of Technology. He received in 2002 a MSc degree in computer science at the Vienna University of Technology and in 2008 a PhD in telematics at the Graz University of Technology, Austria. In 2001, he was academic visitor at the Queensland University of Technology, Australia. His research focuses on machine learning and multi-view geometry in computer vision applied to automated video surveillance. His work also touches the interdisciplinary edge to computer engineering where he investigates camera networks and the design of computational systems for computer vision algorithms. Roman contributed with more than 55 papers and patents to research fields such as camera calibration, object detection, object tracking, event recognition where he received awareness of media as well as several awards and grants for his scientific achievements. Roman is senior project leader at AIT where he has been managing cooperations among universities, companies and governmental institutions. Roman co-organised the Visual Object Tracking Challenges VOT’13, VOT’14 and VOT’16 and was program co-chair of AVSS’15. Currently he is steering committee member of AVSS’16. He is regular reviewer for major computer vision conferences and journals.
