Severin Stalder

Severin Stalder received his Master's degree in Electrical Engineering from the Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) in 2008. His research interests in computer vision focus on tracking of any objects with very limited manual input.

Helmut Grabner

Helmut Grabner received a MSc degree (Dipl.-Ing.) in Telematics and a PhD degree (Dr.techn) in Computer Science, both from Graz University of Technology in 2004 and 2008, respectively. He is currently a post doc researcher at the Computer Vision Lap at ETH-Zurich. His research interests are mainly on-line and incremental machine learning for computer vision (e.g., object detection, tracking, recognition and event detection) in particular in the field of visual surveillance.

Prof. Luc Van Gool
Luc Van Gool received the PhD degree in electrical engineering from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium, in 1991 with work on visual invariants. He is currently a full professor of computer vision at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETH). His main interests include 3D reconstruction and modeling, object recognition, tracking, and their integration, as well as computer vision for archaeology. Over the years, he has authored and co-authored over 250 papers in this field and received best paper awards at ICCV 1998 and CVPR 2007. He has been a programme committee member and area chair of several major vision conferences and was programme co-chair of ICCV05. He is a co-founder of the companies Eyetronics, kooaba, GeoAutomation, Procedural, and eSaturnus and member of the IEEE.


Many thanks to colleagues from the Institute for Computer Graphics and Vision (Graz, University of Technology), who were (partially) involved in the development of the algorithms and the source code. Especially, we want to mention Michael Grabner Christian Leistner and Horst Bischof.
