Bio

António Pinheiro is an Assistant Professor at U.B.I. (Universidade da Beira Interior), Covilha, Portugal and a researcher at I.T. (Instituto de Telecomunicações), Portugal. He received the BSc (Licenciatura) from I.S.T., Lisbon in 1988 and the PhD in Electronic Systems Engineering from University of Essex in 2002. Currently, his research interests are on Image Processing, namely on Multimedia Quality Evaluation, Emerging 3D Imaging Technologies, and Medical Image Analysis. He was a Portuguese representative of the European Union Actions COST IC1003 – QUALINET, COST IC1206 – DE-ID, COST 292 and currently of COST BM1304 – MYO-MRI and COST CA16103 – PARENCHIMA and he is currently involved in the project EmergIMG, a Portuguese consortium on emerging imaging technologies, funded by the Portuguese Funding agency and H2020. He is a Portuguese delegate to JPEG, where he is currently the Communication Subgroup chair, involved with the JPEG Pleno project, and the JPEG Pleno - Point Cloud Ah doc Group chair. He was technical program co-chair of QoMEX 2015, special session co-chair of QoMEX 2016 and Technical Program Committee Member of multiple international conferences. He is a senior member of IEEE.
