Ian Reid

Ian Reid is a Professor and the Head of the School of Computer Science at the University of Adelaide.  He is also Deputy Director of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Robotic Vision as well as the Centre’s Adelaide University Node Leader.  He is a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering (ATSE), former Rhodes Scholar, and held an Australian Laureate Fellowship 2013-2018.

His research interests range across computer vision and are currently focused on life-long visual learning, and developing high-level representations for image and video understanding, especially those that can be computed and queried sufficiently rapidly to enable real-time robotic decision making and control. He has previous published widely in areas such as active vision, visual SLAM, visual geometry, human motion capture and intelligent visual surveillance. He has published widely on these topics in major journals and conferences, with more than 33,000 citations and a h-index of 86.

He is a member of the Australian Academy of Science (AAS) National Committee for Information and Communication Sciences, and was General Chair for the 14th Asian Conference on Computer Vision (ACCV) held in Perth, Australia in December 2018. He has previously served on the editorial boards of IEEE T-PAMI, Computer Vision and Image Understanding, and Image and Vision Computing Journal, and has led a number of EU, UK and Australian Research Council sponsored research projects.
