The Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) is one of the two Federal Institutes of Technology in Switzerland with the main emphasis on teaching and research in Engineering Sciences and Technologies. EPFL participation to this project is from the Multimedia Signal Processing Group headed by Prof. Touradj Ebrahimi, which is active in research and teaching in the field of visual information processing and coding. The team is made of 3 senior researchers, 2 post-doc researchers, 7 graduate researchers pursuing PhD theses, and between 5 to 10 undergraduate students. The research topics span through three highly interconnected disciplines of imaging, namely, compression, processing, and security. Compression includes still image, video and 3D image coding. Processing includes image and video analysis for interpretation and telecommunication such as change detection, feature point extraction and tracking, object segmentation and tracking, compressed domain processing, and multimodal man-machine interface for interactive communication. Security activity includes development of algorithms for copyright protection, conditional access and authentication of images, video and 3D models. In addition to the above, the team is very active in standardisation activities MPEG-4, MPEG-7 and MPEG-21, as well as JPEG 2000, JPSearch and JPEG-XR, where it contributes both at the technical and leadership levels.
Responsible Person: Prof. Touradj Ebrahimi
