At the 13th Conference on Computer and Robot Vision, Professor Allan Jepson was recognized with the CIPPRS Research Excellence Award.
The citation reads as follows:
Professor Allan Jepson is recognized for his fundamental contributions to computer vision research. A Professor of Computer Science at the University of Toronto, Jepson published a broad range of influential papers, on optical flow estimation, image segmentation, visual tracking, perceptual grouping, and structure-from-motion. His accomplishments include the first application of phase-based analysis to optical flow and binocular stereopsis. His contributions to visual tracking include landmark papers on Eigen-Tracking, and online adaptive appearance models for visual tracking. Prof. Jepson was an Associate of the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research from 1986-1989 and 2004-2009. Over his career he has supervised an impressive number of graduate students and post-doctoral fellows, many of whom are now leading computer vision researchers in their own right.
