The ISIS research in image processing and computer vision spans techniques from preprocessing, to feature extraction (especially moving ones!) and on to image analysis. Our main application domains have been in biometrics (in automatic face and gait recognition ) and in medical image analysis.
The main academic staff on the research team are John Carter and Mark Nixon. Currently, we have around 20 students working on various aspects of computer vision and image processing. We collaborate with the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research and with the Department of Geography, together with many international institutions. Our financial supporters have included the EPSRC, the EU and the UK Home Office together with many industrial concerns. With Mark Nixon as Chair and John Carter as Media Chair, we hosted the top UK vision conference, the British Machine Vision Conference BMVC98, in Southampton in 1998. You'll find our work in many top international journals and conferences. You'll find Mark Nixon's new book describes much of our work on feature extraction.
