    and a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of
    Rochester in 1995. His research interests include signal and image
    processing, pattern recognition, computer vision, and the related multi-
    disciplines such as multimedia mining, biomedical imaging, computational
    photography, human-computer interaction, and ubiquitous computing. Dr.
    Luo has authored over 120 technical papers and holds over 40 granted US
    patents. He was the recipient of the Best Student Paper Award for Visual
    Communication and Image Processing from SPIE in 1994, a Certificate of
    Merit for Scientific Exhibit from RSNA in 1998, and the Best Poster Paper
    Award at the 2008 ACM International Conference on Content-based Image
    and Video Retrieval.

Dr. Luo actively participates in numerous technical conferences, including serving as the chair of the 2008
ACM International Conference on Content-based Image and Video Retrieval (CIVR), an area chair of the
2008 IEEE International Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR), a program co-
chair of the 2007 SPIE International Symposium on Visual Communication and Image Processing (VCIP),
a member of the Organizing Committee of the 2008 ACM Multimedia Conference, 2008/2006 IEEE
International Conference on Multimedia and Expo (ICME) and 2002 IEEE International Conference on
Image Processing (ICIP), and the founding chair of the International Workshop on Semantic Learning
Application in Multimedia (SLAM). Currently, he is on the editorial boards of the IEEE Transactions on
Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence (TPAMI), the IEEE Transactions on Multimedia (TMM), Pattern
Recognition (PR), and Journal of Electronic Imaging (JEI). He is a guest editor for the special issues on
“Image Understanding for Digital Photos” (PR, 2005), “Real-World Image Annotation and Retrieval”
(TPAMI, 2008), “Integration of Content and Context for Multimedia Management” (TMM, 2008), “Event
Analysis in Video” (the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology, 2009), and
“Probabilistic Graphic Models in Computer Vision” (TPAMI, 2009). He was the chair of the Rochester
Section of the IEEE Signal Processing Society (2001) and a member of the Kodak Research Scientific
Council (2001-2003).

Dr. Luo is an adjunct professor at Rochester Institute of Technology, as well as the co-advisor or thesis
committee member of many Ph.D. and M.S. graduate students in various universities. He is a Kodak
Distinguished Inventor, a winner of the 2004 Eastman Innovation Award (Kodak’s most prestigious
technology prize), a Fellow of the IEEE, and a Fellow of the SPIE.
