Sapienza Università di Roma

Brief Bio
Maria De Marsico is Full Professor at Sapienza University of Rome, Department of Computer Science. She graduated in Computer Science at University of Salerno. Her research interests concern the study of biometric systems (face, iris, gait, multi-biometric systems), pattern recognition, image processing, and human-machine interaction, in particular, issues of accessibility, emotion recognition, and biometric interaction. She is Editor in Chief for Special Issues of Pattern Recognition Letters, Associate Editor of Pattern Recognition, Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Biometrics, Behavior, and Identity Science, and has been guest editor of several Special Issues of high-ranked journals. Maria has been member of the Editorial Board of the IEEE Biometrics Compendium and Editor in Chief of IEEE Biometrics Council Newsletter. She has been co-editor with Michele Nappi (University of Salerno) and Massimo Tistarelli (University of Sassari) of the book "Face recognition in adverse conditions" published by IGI Global, and with Michele Nappi (University of Salerno) Hugo Proença (University of Beira Interior) of the book “Human Recognition in Outdoor Unconstrained Environments - Using Computer Vision, Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning Methods for Biometrics” edited by Elsevier – Academic Press. She is Program co-Chair of the International Conference on Pattern Recognition Applications and Methods - ICPRAM since 2013. Maria is Member of IEEE (The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers), ACM (Association for Computing Machinery), CVPL ( former GIRPR - Italian Group of Researchers in Pattern Recognition), and EAB (European Association for Biometrics). ...
