Profile Summary

Dr. Frederic Dufaux is a CNRS Research Director at the Laboratoire des Signaux et Systèmes. He is also Editor-in-Chief of Signal Processing: Image Communication, and a Fellow of IEEE.

Frederic received his M.Sc. in physics and Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL), Lausanne, Switzerland, in 1990 and 1994 respectively.

Frederic has over 20 years of experience in research. From 1990 to 1994, he was a research assistant at the Signal Processing Laboratory at EPFL. During the summer 1992, he was a visiting researcher at the Advanced Video Technology Department of AT&T Bell Laboratories, Murray Hill, NJ. In 1994 and 1995, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Media Laboratory of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA. From 1995 until 2001, he was a senior member of research staff at the Cambridge Research Laboratory of Digital Equipment Corp. / Compaq Computer Corp., Cambridge, MA. In 2001, he joined Genimedia SA (EPFL spin-off), as a principal solutions architect. From 2003 until 2010, he was a senior research fellow at the MultiMedia Signal Processing Lab at EPFL. From 2003 to 2009, he was also chief scientist of Emitall Surveillance SA, a spin-off from EPFL. In 2010, he joined CNRS as a Research Director.

Frederic has been involved in the standardization of digital video and imaging technologies for more than 15 years, participating both in the MPEG and JPEG committees.

His research interests include image and video coding, distributed video coding, 3D video, high dynamic range imaging, visual quality assessment, video surveillance, privacy protection, image and video analysis, multimedia content search and retrieval, video transmission over wireless network. He is the author or co-author of 3 books, more than 120 research publications (h-index=36) and 17 patents issued or pending.

Course Instructor
SC766: Information Processing for Video Surveillance
The purpose of this short course is to give a broad view of the many aspects of video surveillance. In particular, we will review the state-of-the-art in video surveillance as well as discuss the latest developments and future trends. From a technical point of view, the short course will address several important areas which are relevant in a video surveillance system, including video analysis, video coding, security, transmission and video database management. Besides the technical aspects, the short course will also address societal issues and legal aspects.
