Physics Computer Vision Logo

University of Patras Computer Vision (UPCV) Group, is an active research group under the Electronics Laboratory (ELLAB) of Physics Department. UPCV is participating in two Master Degree Programs providing Lectures on Digital Signal, Image Processing and Pattern Recognition. Main research interest areas are:

1. Multimedia Retrieval- Large Scale Image Retrieval
2. Action Recognition
3. Biometrics
4. Biomedical Data Analysis /Classification
5. Real Time Computer Vision Applications
6. Machine Learning and Pattern Recognition Algorithms

Currently the team is composed by 3 faculty members, 5 PhD candidates, 2 post Docs and several MSC Students. UP Computer Vision Group, is a member of "Biometria" Academic Research Network, working on state of the art biometric research. UPCV group is working jointly with computer vision industry companies developing several state of the art real time computer vision applications.

ICPR 2014 Contest on "Performance Evaluation of Indirect Immunofluorescence Image Analysis Systems"

Our team participated the contest in "Performance Evaluation of Indirect Immunofluorescence Image Analysis Systems" hosted by the 22nth International Conference on Pattern Recognition (ICPR). The contest session was held on August 24th, 2014 at the Stockholm Waterfront in Sweden. The contest jointly organized by the University of Salerno (Italy) and the University of Queensland (Australia) with the support of the Sullivan Nicolaides Pathology (SNP)- Queensland Medical Testi Laboratory, (Australia).
Our team ranked in the third position in Task 1 (Cell Level Classification). Read more here:
