Francisco José Perales
Brief Bio
Dr. Francisco J. Perales is a senior researcher in the area of computer graphics and vision, human computer interaction and neurorehabilitation. He obtained his BS and MS in computer science at the Universidad Autonoma de Barcelona (UAB) in 1986. In 1993 he obtained a Master of Digital Image Processing at the UAB. He received a Ph. D. degree in Computer Science at the Universitat de les Illes Balears (UIB) in 1993. In 2013 he obtained a Master of Medicine at the UIB. He is currently pursuing a second Ph.D. in neurorehabilitation using serious games and biofeedback. He is a full professor in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at UIB (2017) and head of the Computer Graphics and Vision Group and Artificial Intelligence of UIB. He is an IEEE senior member (1995-2019). He was a visitant professor at University of Tübingen at the Institute for Medical Psychology and Behavioural Neurobiology.
Adrian Muscat
University of Malta
Brief Bio
Adrian Muscat holds the position of associate professor at the Department of Communications and Computer Engineering, University of Malta. He received the Ph.D. in Electronics Engineering from Queen Mary University of London in 2002, the M.Sc. Degree in RF and Microwave Engineering from the University of Bradford in 1996, and the B.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Malta, 1993. His current research interests are in computer vision and image understanding, with special emphasis on detecting spatial relations in images and video and their application in robotics, autonomous vehicles and assisted living.


The goal of this workshop is to promote interaction and collaboration among researchers working in the areas covered by the workshop. A study of the human body using computer technologies as the main tool is the unifying theme of the workshop. The AMDO 2020 workshop offers a great opportunity to encourage collaboration between researchers in the areas of computer vision, computer graphics, advanced multimedia applications and human multimodal interfaces that share common problems and frequently use similar techniques or tools.


Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
  • Human Modelling & Animation
  • Human Motion Analysis & Tracking
  • 3D Human Reconstruction & Recognition
  • Human 3D Medical Deformable Models & Visualization
  • Advanced Human Computer Applications
  • Facial Expression Analysis, Recognition and Modelling
