Activities / Resume

Donatello Conte received his Ph.D. degree in 2006 by a joint supervision between LIRIS laboratory of the INSA of Lyon (France) and MIVIA laboratory of the University of Salerno (Italy). 

He has been an Assistant Professor from 2006 to 2013, in Italy at the University of Salerno. From 2013 to date, he is Associate Professor at the Computer Science Laboratory of the University of Tours. 

Currently he is co-head of the RFAI team at the Computer Science Laboratory and he participates, as member and sometimes as local coordinator, to several regional projects on image and video analysis.

His main research fields are: structural pattern recognition (graph matching, graph kernels, combinatorial maps), video analysis (objects detection and tracking, trajectories analysis, crowding estimation, etc.), and affective computing (emotion recognition, multimodality analysis for affective analysis, modeling affection, etc.). 

He is the author of more than 70 publications and reviewers in the main journals in his research field (PAMI, PR, CVIU, TIP, etc.). He is member of the Editorial Board of the Elsevier Journal Internet of Things, and he is Guest Editor for the Pattern Recognition Letters journal.

He is a member of the IAPR TC15 (dedicated to the promotion of graphs in the Pattern Recognition), for which he animates, with J.Y. Ramel, the TC15 Newsletter. He has been co-chair of the International Workshop on Graph-basd Representation in Pattern Recognition (GbR2019) that was held in France in June 2019. He has been co-chair of the Video Processing for Human Behavioral Analysis (VP-HBA) Track at the 35th ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC 2020).
