Keynote Speaker. Over the past 30 years, Prof. Malik's research group has worked on many different topics in computer vision. Several well-known concepts and algorithms arose in this research, such as anisotropic diffusion, normalized cuts, high dynamic range imaging, and shape contexts. Prof. Malik received the Distinguished Researcher in Computer Vision Award from IEEE PAMI-TC and the K.S. Fu Prize from the International Association of Pattern Recognition. He has been elected to the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. He earned a B.Tech in Electrical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur in 1980 and a PhD in Computer Science from Stanford University in 1985.
