Personal information

Antonis Argyros (Αντώνης Αργυρός) is a Professor of Computer Science at the Computer Science Department (CSD), University of Crete (UoC) and a researcher at the Institute of Computer Science (ICS), Foundation for Research and Technology-Hellas (FORTH) in Heraklion, Crete, Greece. He received a B.Sc. degree (1989), an M.Sc. degree (1992) and a Ph.D. degree (1996) in Computer Science from CSD-UoC. He has been a postdoctoral fellow at the Computational Vision and Active Perception Laboratory at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm, Sweden. His current research interests fall in the areas of computer vision and pattern recognition, with emphasis on the analysis of humans in images and videos, human pose analysis, recognition of human activities and gestures, 3D computer vision, as well as image motion and tracking. He is also interested in applications of computer vision in the fields of robotics and smart environments. Since 1999, as a member of the Computational Vision and Robotics Laboratory (CVRL) of ICS-FORTH, he has been involved in several European and national RTD projects on computer vision, pattern recognition, image analysis and robotics. In these areas, he has published more than 160 papers in scientific journals and refereed conference proceedings and has also delivered serveral invited and keynote talks in international events, universities and research centers.

Antonis Argyros has served as a general co-chair of ECCV 2010, as an Area Chair for ECCV 2016, BMVC 2017, BMVC 2018 and IEEE FG 2019, as a co-organizer of HANDS 2015 and HANDS 2017, as an Associate Editor for ICPR 2018, IEEE ICRA 2016, ICRA 2017, ICRA 2018, IEEE/RSJ IROS 2016, IROS 2017, IROS 2018 and as an Area Editor of EUSIPCO 2017. He also serves as an Area Editor for the Computer Vision and Image Understanding Journal (CVIU), as a member of the Editorial Board of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Letters journal, as a member of the Advisory Board of the IET Image Processing journal. He has served as a reviewer in more than 35 journals and as a reviewer/TPC member of more than 65 conferences in computer vision, computer graphics, robotics and related disciplines. Antonis Argyros is a faculty member of the Brain and Mind interdisciplinary graduate program, Chairman of the Postgraduate Studies Committee of CSD-UoC, Chairman of the Scientific Council of ICS-FORTH, Deputy Member of the Board of Directors of the European Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics (ERCIM) and a member of its Strategy Task Group.

Currently, Antonis Argyros is Project Investigator for the following projects, dealing with their computer vision-related aspects:

  • H2020 Project Co4Robots - Achieving Complex Collaborative Missions via Decentralized Control and Coordination of Interacting Robots
  • H2020 Project ACANTO - A Cyberphysical Social Network Using Robot Friends
