Issue No. 11 - November (2005 vol. 27)
We would first like to express our sincere gratitude to Yann Lecun, Long Quan, and Steve Seitz who are retiring as TPAMI Associate Editors. While they'll remain active for a few more months as they wrap up papers still in their charge, we will miss their dedication and sound judgment.
We are also pleased to announce that Martial Hebert, Kiriakos N. Kutulakos, and Xiaoou Tang have joined TPAMI as Associate Editors. Their addition greatly enhances the depth of our editorial board in central areas of computer vision.
Martial Hebert will handle papers in the areas of object recognition, analysis and object modeling with 3D data, shape representation, and robotics applications. Kyros N. Kutulakos will be considering manuscripts in image-based modeling, 3D shape acquisition, illumination and reflectance modeling, and stereo vision. Xiaoou Tang will oversee papers in face analysis (detection, alignment, recognition, reconstruction, expressions) as well as content-based image retrieval, object recognition, and biometrics. Their brief biographies appear below.
Welcome to TPAMI's editorial board and we look forward to working with you.

Martial Hebert is a professor at the Robotics Institute, Carnegie Mellon University. His current research interests include object recognition in images, video, and range data, scene understanding using context representations, and model construction from images and 3D data. His group has explored applications in the areas of autonomous mobile robots, both in indoor and in unstructured, outdoor environments, automatic model building for 3D content generation, and video monitoring. He has served on the program committees of the major conferences in the computer vision area; he was general cochair of CVPR'05.
Kiriakos N. Kutulakos received the BA degree in computer science from the University of Crete, Greece, in 1988 and the MS and PhD degrees in computer science from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, in 1990 and 1994, respectively. He has been an associate professor of computer science at the University of Toronto since 2001. Following his dissertation work, he joined the University of Rochester, where he was a US National Science Foundation postdoctoral fellow and later an assistant professor until 2001. While on sabbatical from the University of Toronto in the 2004-05 academic year, he held a visiting scholar position at the Visual Computing Group, Microsoft Research Asia. He was awarded the David Marr Prize in 1999 for the best paper at the International Conference on Computer Vision, an Outstanding Paper Award at the Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition Conference in 1994, a CAREER award from the US National Science Foundation, a Premier's Research Excellence Award from the government of Ontario, and an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship. He served as program cochair of the Workshop on Modeling and Analysis of Visual Scenes in 1999 and of the Computer Vision and Pattern Conference in 2003. His research interests include computer vision, computer graphics, and robotics. He is a member of the IEEE.
Xiaoou Tang (S'93-M'96-SM'02) received the BS degree from the University of Science and Technology of China, Hefei, in 1990, and the MS degree from the University of Rochester, Rochester, New York, in 1991. He received the PhD degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, in 1996. He was a full professor and the director of Multimedia Lab in the Department of Information Engineering, the Chinese University of Hong Kong until 2005. Currently, he is the group manager of the Visual Computing Group at Microsoft Research Asia. He is the local chair of the IEEE International Conference on Computer Vision (ICCV) 2005, the general cochair of the IEEE ICCV International Workshop on Analysis and Modeling of Faces and Gestures 2005. He is a guest editor of the special issue on underwater image and video processing for the IEEE Journal of Oceanic Engineering and the special issue on image and video-based biometrics for the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology. His research interests include computer vision, pattern recognition, and video processing. He is a senior member of the IEEE.
