EUC Colloquium on Mathematics, Computer Science and Engineering

The EUC Colloquium on Mathematics, Computer Science and Engineering  was established in November 2011 and is organized by the Department of Computer Science of the European University Cyprus. The purpose of Colloquium is to provide a forum to our colleagues, our current and potentially future collaborators as well as known scientists to meet, present research findings, and discuss developments on a variety of topics spanning all important fields of Computer Science and Engineering. It also aims to provide an environment in which graduate students can gain experience in presenting their work, and benefit from contact with established researchers. The scope of the colloquium includes all aspects of Computer science, including Networks, Software Engineering, Databases, Algorithms, Theoretical Computer Science, Human Computer Interaction, High Performance Computing, and Operational Research, as well as aspects of Mathematics and Engineering.

If you are interested in giving at talk at the Colloquium, please contact the coordinator Dr. Vicky Papadopoulou by filling out the Colloquium Form.

 Feature Extraction. Why?




11:30 - 14:20




 Features contain the most important characteristics of objects, whether these are images, surfaces or accelerometer signals. Being able to extract features allows us to reduce tremendously the initial description of these objects and use them instead on a variety of interesting applications. In this talk, we provide an overview of feature extraction and the uses of features that vary from 3D surface decimation and morphing and 3D face reconstruction to step detection, currency recognition or stay-point identification.

Short CV

 Georgios Stylianou is an Assistant Professor at the department of Computer Science and Engineering at the European University Cyprus. He earned a B.Sc., in 1998, in Computer Science from the University of Cyprus and a Ph.D., in 2003, from the department of Computer Science and Engineering at Arizona State University. During 2004 he has worked as a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Cyprus. He has over 30 peer reviewed publications in journals, books and conference proceedings and one patent. His current research focus is on mobile computing, feature extraction, computer vision and location based services.
