Stefano Tubaro was born in Novara in 1957. He completed his studies in Electronic Engineering at the "Politecnico di Milano", Italy, in 1982. He then joined the "Dipartimento di Elettronica e Informazione" of the "Politecnico di Milano", first as a researcher of the National Research Council, then (in November 1991) as an Associate Professor, and from December 2004 as a Full Professor.
In the first years of activities Stefano Tubaro worked on problems related to speech analysis; motion estimation/compensation for video analysis/coding; and vector quantization applied to hybrid video coding. In the past few years, his research interests have focused on image and video analysis for the geometric and radiometric modeling of 3D scenes; advanced algorithms for video coding and sound processing.
Stefano Tubaro authored more than 150 scientific publications on international journals and congresses.
He also co-authored two books on digital processing of video sequences.
He is also a co-author of several patents relative to image processing techniques. Stefano Tubaro has been member of the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) Multimedia Signal Processing (MMSP) Technical Committee and he has been part of the organizing committee of several international conferences among which IEEE-MMSP2004 (Siena, Italy) and IEEE-ICIP2005 (Genova), IEEE-AVSS2005 (Como) as General Chair and IEEE/ACM-ICDS2009 (Como) with the same role.
Stefano Tubaro coordinates the research activities of the Image and Sound Processing Group (ISPG) at the Dipartimento di Elettronica e Informazione of the Politecnico di Milano that is involved in several research programs funded by industrial partners, the Italian Government and by the European Commission.
