IPCV: Erasmus Mundus Master programme in Computer Vision

Dr. Vincent Lepetit is a Full Professor at the LaBRI, University of Bordeaux, and an associate member of the Inria Manao team. He also supervizes a research group in Computer Vision for Augmented Reality at the Institute for Computer Graphics and Vision, TU Graz.

He received the PhD degree in Computer Vision in 2001 from the University of Nancy, France, after working in the ISA INRIA team. He then joined the Virtual Reality Lab at EPFL as a post-doctoral fellow and became a founding member of the Computer Vision Laboratory. He became a Professor at TU Graz in February 2014, and at University of Bordeaux in January 2017.

His research is at the interface between Machine Learning and 3D Computer Vision, with application to 3D hand pose estimation, feature point detection and description, and 3D object or camera registration from images. In particular, he introduced with his colleagues methods such as Ferns, BRIEF, LINE-MOD, and DeepPrior for feature point matching and 3D object recognition.

He often serves as area chair and program committee member of major vision conferences (CVPR, ICCV, ECCV, ACCV, BMVC). He is an editor for the International Journal of Computer Vision (IJCV) and the Computer Vision and Image Understanding (CVIU) journal.
