The people who have been chosen to recruit the Department have also constituted its most powerful asset. They have become the driving force that led the Department to its current state of authority. All faculty members are finely educated professors, who have graduated from some of the most well-known universities in Europe and the USA (Berkeley, Stanford, MIT, Princeton, Toronto, Brown, to name a few). They are people who can relate to the roots of systems thinking and they intend to define the methods, the aims and the principles of computing. Their research achievements have exceeded the boundaries of Greek academia; their research results have been published in the most prestigous international journals and conferences of their field.
Antonis Argyros - Head of Department
He received his PhD in 1996 from the Computer Science Department, University of Crete. He has been a postdoctoral research at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), in Stockholm, Sweden. His research interests include the areas of computer vision and pattern recognition with emphasis on 3D reconstruction, motion perception and tracking, analysis of the geometry and motion of the human body as well as human action and gesture recognition based on visual information.  He is also interested in applications of computer vision in the fields of robotics and smart environments.
