Adrian Hilton, BSc(hons), DPhil, CEng
Professor of Computer Vision and Graphics and Director of the Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing at the University of Surrey, UK

Adrian leads research investigating the use of computer vision for applications in entertainment content production, visual interaction and clinical analysis.

His interest is in robust computer vision to model and understand real world scenes, bridging-the-gap between real and computer generated imagery. This combines the fields of computer vision, machine learning, graphics and animation to investigate new methods for reconstruction, modelling and understanding of the real world from images and video. Applications include: sports analysis (soccer, rugby and athletics), 3D TV and film production, visual effects, character animation for games, digital doubles for film and facial animation for visual communication.

Contributions include technologies for the first hand-held 3D scanner, modeling of people from images and 3D video for games, broadcast and film production. Current research is focused on video-based measurement in sports, multiple camera systems in film and TV production, and 4D video for highly realistic animation of people and faces. Research is conducted in collaboration with UK companies and international institutions in the creative industries

Adrian is currently the Principal Investigator of the EPSRC Programme Grant S3A: ‘Future Spatial Audio for Immersive Listener Experience at Home’ (2013-2018) and EPSRC Platform Grant ‘Audio-Visual Media Research’, he also leads several EU and UK/ industry projects. Adrian currently holds a 5-year Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award (2013-2018).

Dr Syed Ali Raza Zaidi
University Academic Fellow, University of Leeds

Syed Ali Raza Zaidi is currently University Academic Fellow in the area of Communication and Networking for IoT, Robotics and Autonomous Systems at University of Leeds. Previously he worked on the US army research lab funded project : `Cognitive Green Wireless Communication- A Network Science Perspective'. He received his B.Eng degree in information and communication system engineering from the School of Electronics and Electrical Engineering, NUST, Pakistan in 2008. He was awarded the NUST's most prestigious Rector's gold medal for his final year project.

From September 2007 till August 2008, he served as a Research Assistant in Wireless Sensor Network Lab on a collaborative research project between NUST, Pakistan and Ajou University, South Korea. In 2008, he was awarded overseas research student (ORS) scholarship along with Tetley Lupton and Excellence Scholarships to pursue his PhD at the School of Electronics and Electrical Engineering, University of Leeds, U.K. He was also awarded with COST IC0902, DAAD and Royal Academy of Engineering grants to promote his research.

He was a visiting research scientist at Qatar Innovations and Mobility Center from October to December 2013. He has served as an invited reviewer for IEEE flagship journals and conferences. Over past few years, Dr. Zaidi has served as TPC Member for IEEE WCNC, IEEE VTC, IEEE His research is focused towards design analysis and implementation of the large scale ad-hoc wireless networks by employing tools from stochastic geometry and random graph theory. He is also an embedded systems and programming enthusiast.
