ISP · Image and Signal Processing group

The Image and Signal Processing (ISP) Group at the Universitat de València (Spain) develops data analysis techniques and vision algorithms. We focus on methods able to extract knowledge from empirical data drawn by sensory (mostly imaging) physical systems. These measurements depend on the properties of the scenes and the physics of the acquisition process. Our approach to signal, image, and vision processing combines machine learning theory with the understanding of the underlying physics and biological vision.

Applications mainly focus on computational visual neuroscience, image processing, remote sensing data analysis, and geosciences. The problems posed in these disciplines require similar mathematical tools, where model inversion, uncertainty estimation, and causal inference from empirical data play a central role.

We are a classic! "Composite kernels for hyperspectral image classification" published in IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Letters in 2006 is one of the highly-cited papers in its area of research, mainteining its impact long after publication. Mètode TV SEDAL: From MètodeTV, the channel of the Universitat de València, SEDAL is introduced to the public. Prof. Jesus Malo has been appointed as Associate Editor of Frontiers in Neuroscience (IF = 3.4), section Perception Science (may 2017) Maria Piles (president) and Gustau Camps-Valls (member) in the Executive Committee of the Spain Geoscience and Remote Sensing Chapter. Let's do things to promote technology and science in remote sensing! We are looking for an outstanding student to do a PhD thesis within an excellence european ERC project! Deadline: April 1st 2017! Is this you? An international research involving the Universitat de València just provided a new vision in the quest to determine whether temperature or water availability is the most influential factor in determining the success of global, land-based carbon sinks. The results are published in Nature with Gustau Camps-Valls as co-author Dr. Maria Piles will join the ISP group through a prestigious "Ramón y Cajal" fellowship next January 2017. The ISP consolidates the research line of retrieval of soil moisture and vegetation biogeophysical parameters from space observations (microwave radiometers, radars and hyperspectral imagers). Welcome Maria! Prof. Gustau Camps-Valls was appointed as IEEE Distinguished Lecturer of the Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS). We will organize a Dagstuhl seminar on "Computer Science meets Ecology" gathering the best researchers of both worlds in a unique environment for fruitful discussions. We published learning material on geoscience and remote sensing data processing in IEEE GRSS training material online! Analog Devices moves to the Science Park of the UV. New facilities and closer collaborations. Welcome back, Javi! Luis Gómez-Chova received a Google Earth Engine Research Award 2015 to foster research in cloud detection. We organize here in València the biggest IEEE remote sensing and geoscience conference, IGARSS, in 2018. Gustau Camps-Valls recently got an ERC consolidator grant (ERC-CoG) with the project "Statistical Learning for Remote Sensing Data Analysis" (SEDAL) for the period 2015-2020. Positions available here!
