Profile Summary

Peter Schelkens received his degree in electronic engineering in VLSI-design from the Industriële Hogeschool Antwerpen-Mechelen (IHAM), Campus Mechelen. Thereafter, he obtained an electrical engineering degree (MSc) in applied physics, a biomedical engineering degree (medical physics), and, finally, a PhD degree in applied sciences from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB).

Peter Schelkens currently holds a professorship at the Department of Electronics and Informatics (ETRO) at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB). Peter Schelkens is research director at the iMinds institute founded by the Flemish government to stimulate ICT innovation. Additionally, since 1995, he has also been affiliated to the Interuniversity Microelectronics Institute (imec), Belgium, as scientific collaborator. Since 2010, he became a member of the board of councillors of the same institute. From 2002 till 2011, Peter Schelkens has held an FWO postdoctoral fellowship and in 2013, he received an ERC Consolidator Grant focusing on digital holography.

The research interests of Peter Schelkens are situated in the field of multidimensional signal processing encompassing the representation, communication, security and rendering of these signals while especially focussing on cross-disciplinary research. His team is participating in the ISO/IEC JTC1/SC29/WG1 (JPEG) and WG11 (MPEG) standardization activities. Peter Schelkens is chair of the Coding & Analysis Subgroup and PR chair of the JPEG committee.

He is co-editor of the books, ‘‘The JPEG 2000 Suite" and “Optical and Digital Image Processing”, published respectively in 2009 and 2011 by Wiley. He is a member of the IEEE, SPIE, and ACM, and elected committee member of the IEEE Image, Video, and Multidimensional Signal Processing Technical Committee (IVMSP TC) (Term 2013-2015) and the IEEE Multimedia Signal Processing Technical Committee (MMSP TC)(Term 2014-2016). He is associate editor of IEEE Trans. on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology.
