We are pleased to announce the appointments of Professors Irfan Essa, Chandra Kambhamettu, Guillermo Sapiro, Philip Torr, and Drs. Simon Baker, Pascal Fua, Jonathon Phillips, and Harpreet S. Sawhney. These new AEs bring a wealth of experience and scholarship in areas that are central to the mission of TPAMI. Dr. Baker will handle papers in face processing (recognition, tracking, face model fitting and construction, expression, gaze, and detection), superresolution and image enhancement, and 3D reconstruction (shape-from-silhousette, layers, optical/scene flow, 3D tracking, human 3D modeling, and tracking). Professor Essa will handle papers in video analysis and synthesis, human motion analysis, human modeling, activity recognition, tracking and surveillance, vision for graphics, and vision for HCI. Dr. Fua will handle papers in human body modeling, shape-from-stereo and shading, and 3D tracking and pose estimation. Professor Kambhamettu will handle papers in nonrigid motion, deformable models, tracking, reconstruction, illumination models, medical image analysis, and remotely sensed image analysis. Dr. Phillips will handle papers in face processing, biometrics, and evaluation. Professor Sapiro will handle papers in partial differential equations, level-set methods, and differential geometry in imaging sciences. Dr. Sawhney will handle papers in 2D/3D object recognition and classification, motion analysis, image/video indexing, tracking, and visual learning. Professor Torr will handle papers in object recognition, tracking, and segmentation. Their brief biographies and photos appear below.
We would also like to take this opportunity to express our sincere appreciation and gratitude to the nine retiring associate editors, Professor Alberto Del Bimbo, Professor David Fleet, Professor Alireza Khotanzad, Professor Stan Sclaroff, Professor Vic Solo, Dr. Luc Vincent, Professor JohnWeng, Dr. Kazuhiko Yamamoto, and Dr. Zhengyou Zhang. They have served TPAMI in an exemplary manner.
