Bio of the Speaker：
Patrick Le Callet received both an M.Sc. and a PhD degree in image processing from Ecole polytechnique de l’Université de Nantes. He was also a student at the Ecole Normale Superieure de Cachan where he sat the “Aggrégation” (credentialing exam) in electronics of the French National Education. He worked as an Assistant Professor from 1997 to 1999 and as a full time lecturer from 1999 to 2003 at the Department of Electrical Engineering of Technical Institute of the University of Nantes (IUT). Since 2003, he teaches at Ecole polytechnique de l’Université de Nantes (Engineering School) in the Electrical Engineering and the Computer Science departments where is now a Full Professor. He led for ten years (2006-16) the Image and Video Communication lab at CNRS IRCCyN and was one of the five members (2013-16) of the Steering Board of CNRS IRCCyN (250 researchers). Since January 2017, he is one of the seven members of the steering Board the CNRS LS2N lab (450 researchers), as representative of Polytech Nantes. He is also since 2015 the scientific director of the cluster “Ouest Industries Créatives”, a five year program gathering more than 10 institutions (including 3 universities). “Ouest Industries Créatives” aims to strengthen Research, Education & Innovation of the Region Pays de Loire in the field of Creative Industries. He is mostly engaged in research dealing with the application of human vision modeling in image and video processing. His current centers of interest are Quality of Experience assessment, Visual Attention modeling and applications, Perceptual Video Coding and Immersive Media Processing. He is co-author of more than 250 publications and communications and co-inventor of 16 international patents on these topics. He serves or has been served as associate editor or guest editor for several Journals such as IEEE TIP, IEEE STSP, IEEE TCSVT, SPRINGER EURASIP Journal on Image and Video Processing, and SPIE JEI. He is serving in IEEE IVMSP-TC (2015- to present) and IEEE MMSP-TC (2015-to present) and one the founding member of EURASIP SAT (Special Areas Team) on Image and Video Processing.
