Biographical Sketch

Eric Dubois

Eric Dubois received the B.Eng. (honours) degree with great distinction and the M.Eng. degree from McGill University in 1972 and 1974, and the Ph.D. from the University of Toronto in 1978, all in electrical engineering. He joined the Institut national de la recherche scientifique (University of Quebec) in 1977, where he held the position of professor in the INRS-TÚlÚcommunications centre in Montreal, Canada until 1998. From 1998 to 2015, he was Professor with the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (formerly the School of Information Technology and Engineering (SITE)) at the University of Ottawa, Ottawa, Canada. He is now an Emeritus Professor. He was Vice-Dean (Research) and Secretary of the Faculty of Engineering from 2001 to 2004. From January 2006 to December 2008 he was Director of SITE.

His research has centered on the compression and processing of still and moving images, and in multidimensional digital signal processing theory. His current research is focused on stereoscopic and multiview imaging, image sampling theory, image-based virtual environments and color signal processing. The research has been carried out in collaboration with such organizations as the Communications Research Centre, the National Research Council, the RCMP, and the Learning Objects Repositories Network (LORNET).

Dubois is a Life Fellow of the IEEE, a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Engineering and of the Engineering Institute of Canada and an emeritus member of the Optical Society of America (OSA). He was recipient of the 2013 George S. Glinski Award for Excellence in Research from the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Ottawa and is corecipient of the 1988 Journal Award from Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers. He was a member of the editorial board of the EURASIP journal Signal Processing: Image Communication and was an associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Image Processing (1994-1998). He was technical program co-chair for the IEEE 2000 International Conference on Image Processing (ICIP) and a member of the organizing committee for the IEEE 2004 International Conference on Acoustics, Speech and Signal Processing (ICASSP) and the IEEE 2015 ICIP.
