Impact in the mass media of my PhD dissertation

Some newspapers and blogs have informed about the presentation of my PhD dissertation. Following I list some of these news:

And thank you everybody again!

 

Presentation of my PhD dissertation

In July 7, 2011, I've presented my PhD dissertation called "Procesamiento de imagen y visión hiperespectral para el control de calidad en la industria de la patata (Image processing and hyperspectral imaging for quality control in the potato industry)", and with my PhD advisers, Dr. Arno Formella and Dr. Pilar Carrión, as well as partners and friends.

The Thesis committee was composed by Dr. Filiberto Pla (Universitat Jaume I), Dr. Pablo García (Universidad de Extremadura), Dr. Pedro Villar (Universidad de Granada), Dr. Eva Cernadas (Universidade de Santiago de Compostela) and Dr. María José Lado (Universidade de Vigo). After the presentation and some questions, the committee assigned me the highest qualification, Sobresaliente Cum Laude.

Thank you everbody!

NACCE: Núcleo de apoyo a la competitividad y a la creación de empresas TIC, es un proyecto financiado por la convocatoria POCTEP, liderado por la Xunta de Galicia (DX Promoción do Emprego), y en el que participa, entre otros, la Escola Superior de Enxeñería Informática de la Universidade de Vigo, en el que he comenzado a trabajar en este mes de junio. Sus objetivos son, entre otros, proporcionar formación y apoyo a emprendedores y PYMES TIC en materia de colaboración, internacionalización, creación de empresas y puesta en marcha de nuevas líneas de negocio.

En el proyecto colaboran, además: AGESTIC (Asociación Gallega de Empresas TIC), la Cámara de Comercio de Vigo, la Associaçâo Empresarial AIMINHO de Braga y el CCG (Centro de Computação Gráfica, Investigação & Desenvolvimento Tecnológico) de Guimarâes (en la imagen).

 

CAIP 2011 and ICIAP 2011

Two new contributions in 2011, both related with my PhD dissertation. The first one, titled Non-destructive detection of hollow heart in potatoes using hyperspectral imaging, will be presented at the conference 14th International Conference on Computer Analysis of Images and Patterns (CAIP 2011), to be held in Sevilla (Spain), from 29 to 31 August 2011. Later, ir will be published in the journal Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).

On the other hand, Common scab detection on potatoes using an infrared hyperspectral imaging system will be presented at the 16th International Conference on Image Analysis and Processing (ICIAP 2011), to be held in Ravenna (Italy), from 14 to 16 September 2011. It will be also published in LNCS.

In both contributions I've had the collaboration of my PhD advisers, Arno Formella and Pilar Carrión, so as my colleagues Esteban Vázquez from GRADIANT and Manuel Fernández Delgado from the USC. More information available in the Publications section.

 

Fish Reproduction and Fisheries

The conference Fish Reproduction and Fisheries (FRESH) has been held in Vigo, organized by my friend from the Fisheries group del Marine Research Institute (IIM-CSIC). The developers of the DETEPRE project have presented the software Govocitos to the attendants. Govocitos is an application that automates fecundity estimation tasks in some species by using computer vision techniques. You can see a presentation here. We have also presented the contribution New automatic software tool to estimate fish fecundity based on image analysis.

Govocitos can be downloaded from the LIA group website. The information will be updated until the end of the project.
