New opening for a postdoctoral positions in computer vision/behavior recognition.

The IDIAP Research Institute (, associated with EPFL (Swiss Federal Insitute of Technology, Lausanne) seeks qualified candidates for one postdoctoral research position computer vision and machine learning for human behavior analysis in open space.

The research will be conducted in the context of the Vanaheim project funded by the European Community.
The successful candidate will investigate new algorithms and models for analyzing and understanding human behavior in public open spaces such as metro stations or indoor rooms.
Specific research topics for human activity recognition using one or multiple cameras will focus on the design of efficient algorithms for multi-object tracking and of perceptual algorithms for behavioral cue extraction; novel approaches for the identification of groups and the modeling of people interaction. The research will rely on previous knowledge and software developed at Idiap on these topics.
