Education & Affiliation
Jan Flusser was born on the 30th April 1962 in Prague, Czech Republic. He received the M.Sc. degree in mathematical engineering from the Faculty of Nuclear Science and Physical Engineering, Czech Technical University, Prague, in 1985, the Ph.D degree in computer science from the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences in 1990, and the DrSc. degree in technical cybernetics from the Czech Technical University in 2001. Since 1985 he has been with the Institute of Information Theory and Automation. In 1995-2007 he was holding the position of a head of Department of Image Processing. In 1998-2006 he was a chairman of the Scientific Board of UTIA. He was appointed Director of the Institute on the 1st May 2007.
Jan Flusser's research interest is on the field of invariant-based pattern recognition and image fusion. His main areas are moments and moment invariants, image registration, multichannel blind deconvolution, and super-resolution imaging. He has authored and coauthored more than 200 research publications in these areas, including the book Moments and Moment Invariants in Pattern Recognition (Wiley, 2009), 60 papers in prestigious journals and 20 tutorials at international conferences (ICIP'05, ICIP'07, EUSIPCO'07, CVPR'08, FUSION'08, SPPRA'09, SCIA'09, ICIP'09, SPPRA'10, CGIM'10, AIA'14, and CI'15) and invited/keynote talks (ICCS'06, COMPSTAT'06, WIO'06, DICTA'07, CGIM'08). His publications have received about 8 000 citations. Jan Flusser has been involved in numerous research projects (both Czech and international ones) and in successful applications in computer vision, remote sensing, medicine, and astronomy. His work (with co-authors) on image restoration in astronomy was awarded by the Award of the Chairman of the Czech Science Foundation (GA CR) in 2007. In the same year, his team won the Prize of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic for the contribution to image fusion theory. In 2010, he was awarded (jointly with B. Zitova) by the prestigious SCOPUS 1000 Award presented by Elsevier. In 2015, he received the Felber Medal of the Czech Technical University. Jan Flusser is a coordonator of the research program "Hopes and Threats of Digital Era", which is a part of the new AV21 CAS Strategy. More about the Jan Flusser's research can be found here.
Teaching & Supervising
Since 1991 he has been also affiliated with the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles University (MFF UK), Prague and with the Faculty of Nuclear Science and Physical Engineering, Czech Technical University (FJFI CVUT), Prague (habilitation in Computer Science at MFF UK in 1998, full professorship in Applied Mathematics at FJFI CVUT in 2004), where he gives undergraduate and graduate courses on Digital Image Processing, Pattern Recognition, and Moment invariants and wavelets. He has been a supervisor of several Ph.D Theses (list) and Master diploma Theses (list). He is also a member of several committees for state examinations, for Ph.D defences in Computer Science, and a Vice-Chair of the committee for DSc. defences in Computer Science and Cybernetics. He is a Chairman of the Board of Ph.D study in Computer Graphics and Image Analysis at MFF UK, a member of the Board of Ph.D study in Mathematical Engineering at FJFI CVUT, and a member of the Board of Ph.D study in Artificial Intelligence and Biocybernetics at FEL CVUT. Jan Flusser acts also as an external supervisor of Ph.D students in Computer Science at the Unversity of Technology Malaysia, Johor Bahru.
Organizing & Others
Jan Flusser has been a member of numerous program and organizing committees at international conferences and personally organized and chaired two special sessions (COMPSTAT'06 and CGIM'08). He is a member of the Editorial Board of the journal Kybernetika, a member of the Czech Committee for Mathematics (IMU), a member of the Scientific Board of the University of West Bohemia, a member of the Scientific Board of the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles University; a member of the Scientific Board of the Faculty of Management, the University of Economics, a member of the Scientific Board of the Faculty of Informatics, the Masaryk University Brno, a member of the Scientific Board of the Faculty of Science of the UJEP in Ústí nad Labem, and a Senior Member of the IEEE.
