Francoise Preteux


Francoise Preteux graduated from the Ecole des Mines de Paris and received the Ph.D. Degree in Mathematics from the University of Paris VI, in 1982 and 1987, respectively.

After working as a research engineer at the Center for Mathematical Morphology of Fontainebleau, she held a position as Professor in the Image Processing Department at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications (ENST), Paris, France, from 1989 to 1993.

Since 1994, she has been a Professor at the INT where she was the Head of the Signal & Image Processing Department until December 1998. She is currently the Head of the ARTEMIS (Advanced Research TEchniques for Multidimensional Imaging Systems) Project Unit.

She is a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Electronic Imaging and a co-chair of the SPIE Conference on Mathematical Modeling and Estimation Techniques in Computer Vision.

She is the author or co-author of over 60 scientific papers within the field of stochastic modeling and mathematical morphology with applications to pattern recognition, medical imaging, and non-destructive testing.

She is now mostly involved within the field of multidimensional imaging with emphasis on 3D modeling, indexing techniques and digital image coding.

She is Deputy Head of the French Delegation for MPEG-7 and an active contributor to core experiments of the MPEG-4/SNHC Group.
