Lucio Marcenaro enjoys over 15 years experience in image and video sequence analysis, and authored about 100 technical papers related to signal and video processing for computer vision. An Electronic Engineering graduate from Genova University in 1999, he received his PhD in Computer Science and Electronic Engineering from University of Genova in 2003. From 2003 to 2010 he was CEO and development manager at TechnoAware srl. From March 2011, he became Assistant Professor in Telecommunications for the Faculty of Engineering at the Department of Electrical, Electronic, Telecommunications Engineering and Naval Architecture (DITEN) at the University of Genova where he teaches the courses of Pervasive Electronics and Computer Programming and Telematics Lab. He is the principal scientific and technical coordinator of the Ambient Awareness Lab (A2Lab), with TechnoAware srl.
His main current research interests are: video processing for event recognition, detection and localization of objects in complex scenes, distributed heterogeneous sensors ambient awareness systems, ambient intelligence and bio-inspired cognitive systems.
Lucio Marcenaro was involved in many video-surveillance projects including: “Sistemi intelligenti per l’elaborazione e la trasmissione di segnali multidimensionali per applicazioni di video-sorveglianza in tempo reale” (1999-2000) funded by the Italian Ministry of University and Scientific Research; UE-FP5 REOST (2002-2004): Railway Electro Optical System for Safe Transportation; UE-FP6 INMOVE (EU IST-2001-37422) (2002-2004): Intelligent Mobile Video Environments; VICOM-FIRB (2002-2006) VICom (Virtual Immersive Communications); Elsag PSA (2001-2004); Architetture distribuite ed eterogenee per sistemi di sorveglianza multi-sensoriali (Prot. N. 7280/297 MIUR) (2002-2005); Context Awarness and Autonomic Network (2007-2009), joint lab with Telecom Italia spa; Sintesis (Sistema integrato per la sicurezza ad intelligenza distribuita) (2008-2010): n.S.HI.E.L.D. (new embedded Systems arcHItecturE for multi-Layer Dependable solutions) (ARTEMIS-2009-1 G.A.269317) (2011-2014).
Lucio Marcenaro was General Chair of the Symposium on Signal Processing for Understanding Crowd Dynamics organized within the 2016 IEEE Global Conference on Signal and Information Processing. He was Industrial Chair of the 6th IEEE International Conference on Advanced Video and Signal Based Surveillance (AVSS2009), Genoa, Italy September 2-4 2009. He is in the technical committee of many surveillance related international conferences (IEEE International Conference on Advanced Video and Signal Based Surveillance (AVSS), IEEE International Conference on Imaging for Crime Detection and Prevention (ICDP), IEEE International Conference on Image Processing (ICIP), IEEE International Workshop on Visual Surveillance (VS) 2009) and international journals (IET Image Processing, IET Computer Vision, IET Communications, Machine Vision and Applications, Circuit and Systems for Video Technology, Pattern Recognition Letters, Transactions on Sensor Networks, Signal Image and Video Processing).
Since 2015 Lucio Marcenaro is an Expert on video analytics for ERNCIP Video Analytics & Surveillance for Security of Critical Infrastructures Thematic Group of the European Union.
