About the Computer & Vision Research Center

Established in 1980, the Computer and Vision Research Center (CVRC) is devoted to the analysis and understanding of images, signals, and data, and to the development of the computer resources required to accomplish these tasks. Research objectives include the development of computational models, algorithms, and architectures for computer vision. Current Center activities include projects in automatic target recognition and automatic recognition of human motion and interactions.

Results of the Center's research are presented at national and international conferences and published in technical reports, scientific journals, and books. Reprints of recent reports and journal publications are available upon request.

Professor J.K. Aggarwal is the recipient of the 2007 Okawa Prize. The Okawa Prize is awarded each year by the Okawa Foundation for Information and Telecommunication of Japan. The Okawa Prize is intended to pay tribute to and make public recognition of persons who have made outstanding contributions to the research, technological development, and business in the information and telecommunication fields, internationally. The winner is awarded a certificate, a gold medal, and 10 million yen. Each year the Okawa Foundation awards two prizes, one to a person of Japanese origin and one to a non-Japanese person. The citation for Professor Aggarwal reads "For Outstanding Contribution to Conception and Pioneering Research of Dynamic Scene Analysis and Multisensor Fusion in Computer Vision Systems". The other winner of the 2007 Okawa Prize is Professor Takeo Kanade of Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburg.

Professor Aggarwal joined the University of Texas at Austin in September 1964 after he received his PhD from the University of Illinois Urbana/Champaign. Earlier he was the recipient of the 2004 King-Sun Fu Prize of the International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR) and the 2005 Leon K. Kirchmayer Graduate Teaching Award of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). He is a Fellow of IAPR, IEEE, and AAAS.
