Thierry Bouwmans

Thierry Bouwmans is an Associate Professor at the University of La Rochelle, France. His research interests consist mainly in the detection of moving objects in challenging environments. He has recently authored more than 100 papers in refereed international journals and conferences in the field of background modeling and foreground detection, and has co-edited two books in CRC Press (background/foreground separation for video surveillance, robust PCA via decomposition in low rank and sparse matrices). His research investigated particularly the use of mathematical concepts (i.e crisp concepts, , statistical concepts, fuzzy concepts,  Dempster-Schäfer concepts),  representation machine learning concepts (i.e discriminative subspace learning models and robust PCA), neural networks concepts, and signal processing concepts for moving objects detection in video surveillance. It also concern full exhaustive surveys on mathematical tools used in foreground/background separation. He has been the lead guest editor of the special issue on “Background Modeling for Foreground Detection in Real-World Dynamic Scenes” in the journal Machine Vision and Applications. He has been the invited talk in the International Workshop on Background Models Challenge at ACCV 2012. He has supervised five Ph.D. students in this field. He is the coordinator of the BGSlibrary (OpenCV C++ Background Subtraction Library) and LRS library (Matlab Low rank and Sparse matrices Library). He is the creator and the administrator of the Background Subtraction Web Site (33 115 visits and 17 636 visitors). He is a reviewer for prestigious international journals including IEEE (Transactions on Image Processing, Transactions on Multimedia, Transactions on CSVT, etc...), SPRINGER (IJCV, MVA, etc...) and ELSEVIER (CVIU, PR, PRL, etc...), and top-level conferences (CVPR, ICPR, ICIP, AVSS, etc...).
