Prof Tim Ellis
School/Department: Computer Science & Mathematics
Prof. TIM ELLIS began his research in image analysis in 1976 with his PhD into the morphometric analysis of sectioned muscle and nerve fibre tissue. He joined City University in 1979, where his research interests included surface inspection, object inspection, colour analysis, autonomous vehicles, image analysis of the conjunctiva and visual surveillance. His interest in visual surveillance originated in 1987 with a feasibility study, sponsored by the Home Office's Police Scientific Development Branch, to detect and identify visual events in short image sequences. He was principal investigator for Intelligent Multi-Camera Surveillance and Monitoring (GR/M58030) which focused on the problem of integrating the tracking of pedestrians and vehicles across a network of video cameras. He wass co-investigator on REVEAL (GR/S98443/01) and REASON (EP/C533410/1). He was a member of the Executive Committee of the British Machine Vision Association from 1992-2004 and a past chairman. In 2004 he co-chaired BMVC2004 at Kingston.
