Luc Florack is full professor in Mathematical Image Analysis in the section CASA of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Eindhoven University of Technology. He holds an MSc in theoretical physics (1989), and a PhD in medical image analysis (1993) from Utrecht University with honors (top 2%). His research interests are mathematical representations of signals, images, and movies, particularly multiscale and differential geometric representations, and their applications to imaging and vision. The application focus is on complex (non-scalar valued) magnetic resonance imaging protocols, and on biologically motivated models of “early vision”. He has (co-)authored more than 175 peer reviewed papers, some of which invited. He has received prestigious personal research grants, notably an ERCIM/HCM grant from the European Commission (1994-1995), a grant from the Danish Research Council (1996), a grant in the Innovational Research Incentive Scheme (Vernieuwingsimpuls-Vici) of the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO), and a grant in the so-called High Potential Research Programme from the Executive Board of Eindhoven University of Technology, intended to establish a cross-divisional collaboration involving various imaging related groups within the university. He has been in the editorial board of the Journal of Mathematical Imaging and Vision for many years, and has acted as a reviewer for over 30 other journals, conferences and workshops. In 1997 he co-founded the first conference in the biannual series of International Scale Space Conferences (nowadays a.k.a. SSVM), together with prof. Bart ter Haar Romeny, prof. Jan Koenderink, and prof. Max Viergever. He has been an invitee to deliver keynote lectures at more than 10 national and international conferences and seminars.
