About the Author
Lorenzo Bruzzone received a laurea (M.S.) degree in electronic engineering (summa cum laude) ad a Ph.D. degree in telecommunications from the University of Genoa, Italy, in 1993 and 1998, respectively. From 1998 to 2000 he was a Postdoctoral researcher at the University of Genoa. In 2000 he joined the University of Trento, Italy, where he is currently a Full Professor telecommunications. He teaches remote sensing, pattern recognition, radar and electrical communications. Dr Bruzzone is the Head of the remote Sensing Laboratory in the Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science, University of Trento. His current research interests are in the area of remote-sensing image processing and recognition (analysis of multitemporal data, feature extraction and election, classification, regression and estimation, data fusion and machine learning). He conducts and supervises research on these topics within the frameworks of several national and international projects. He is an Evaluator of project proposals for many different governments (including the European Commission) and scientific organizations. He is the author (or co-author) of 74 scientific publication in referred international journals, more than 140 papers in conference proceedings and 7 book chapters. He is a referee for many international journals and has served on the Scientific Committees of several international conferences. He is a member of the Managing Committee of the Italian Inter-University Consortium on Telecommunications and a member of the Scientific Committee of the India-Italy Center for Advanced Research. Since 2009 he has been a member of the Administrative Committee of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society. Dr Bruzzone gained first place in the Student Prize Paper Competition of the 1998 IEEE International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (Seattle, July 1998). He was a recipient of the Recognition of IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and remote Sensing Best reviewers in 1999 and was a Guest Editor of a Special Issue of the IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing on the subject of the analysis of multitemporal remote-sensing images (November 2003). He was the General Chair and Co-chair of the First and Second IEEE International Workshop on the Analysis of Multi-temporal remote-Sensing Images (MultiTemp), and is currently a member of the Permanent Steering Committee of this series of workshops. Since 2003, he has been the Chair of the SPIE Conference on Image and Signal Processing for Remote Sensing. From 2004 to 2006 he served as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Letters, and currently is an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing, and the Canadian Journal of Remote Sensing. He is a Senior member of IEEE, and also a member of the International Association for Pattern Recognition and of the Italian Association for Remote Sensing (AIT).
