Prof. Dr. Bernt Schiele

Bernt Schiele heads the Computer Vision and Multimodal Computing group at the MPI for Informatics. Schiele’s group has made fundamental contributions both to computer vision (e.g. to the recognition of objects, and the detection and tracking of people in arbitrary scenes) as well as to ubiquitous computing (e.g. to the recognition of human activities at multiple scales and time durations).

He has coauthored more than 250 publications, many of which are published in the top journals and conferences of his field (e.g. 84 publications alone in ICCV, ECCV, CVPR). Dr. Schiele has served on the program committees of all leading international conferences both in computer vision (multiple times area chair of ICCV, ECCV, CVPR) as well as in pervasive and ubiquitous computing (e.g. Ubicomp, Pervasive, ISWC).

He co-chaired the program committees of leading conferences including Pervasive’06, ISWC’07, ICCV’11 and ECCV’14. Schiele serves or has served on the editorial boards of leading journals including the International Journal on Computer Vision, IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence, and IEEE Pervasive Computing.
