The research interests of Antonis fall in the areas of computational vision with emphasis on tracking, human gesture and posture recognition, 3D reconstruction and omnidirectional vision. He is also interested in applications of computational vision in the fields of robotics and smart environments. There is a more detailed page describing research interests, activities, research results and demonstrations.
Antonis is a project investigator of the FP7-215821 Integrated Project GRASP where he is responsible for the work package related to observing human grasping and learning from it.
Participation in Research Projects
Antonis A. Argyros is a Professor at the Computer Science Department, University of Crete and a Researcher at the Computational Vision and Robotics Lab (CVRL) of ICS-FORTH. He received a B.Sc. degree in Computer Science (1989) and a M.Sc. degree in Computer Science (1992), both from the Computer Science Department, University of Crete. On July 1996, he completed his PhD on visual motion analysis at the same Department. He has been a postdoctoral fellow at the Computational Vision and Active Perception Laboratory (CVAP) at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden.

He is also interested in applications of computational vision in the fields of robotics and smart environments.
Since 1999, as a member of CVRL, he has been involved in many RTD projects in computer vision, robotics and cognitive systems, including EU-funded FP6/FP7 projects TOURBOT, INDIGO, ActIPret, MUSCLE and GRASP. Antonis Argyros was assistant scientific coordinator of the FET coordination action "InterLink". Currently, he is a project investigator of the FP7 EU-funded Integrated Project GRASP and the technical coordinator of the ICS-FORTH internal Programme on Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environments.
Antonis Argyros is an area editor for the Computer Vision and Image Understanding Journal (CVIU), member of the Editorial Board of the IET Image Processing Journal and one of the general chairs of the 11th European Conference in Computer Vision (ECCV'2010, Heraklion, Crete). He has also acted as a reviewer in several top vision and robotics conferences (CVPR, ICCV, ECCV, IROS, ICRA, RSS) and journals (IEEE Trans. on PAMI, IEEE Trans. on Image Processing, CVIU, IMAVIS, IEEE Trans. on Robotics, IEEE Trans. on CSVT). He is also a faculty member of the "Brain and Mind" interdisciplinary graduate program and a member of the Executive Committee of the European Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics (ERCIM).
