Josep Lladós received the degree in Computer Sciences in 1991 from the Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya and the PhD degree in Computer Sciences in 1997 from the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona (Spain) and the Université Paris 8 (France). Currently he an Associate Professor at the Computer Sciences Department of the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona and a staff researcher of the Computer Vision Center, where he is also the director. He is the head of the Pattern Recognition and Document Analysis Group (2005SGR-00472). His current research fields are document analysis, graphics recognition and structural and syntactic pattern recognition. He has been the head of a number of Computer Vision R+D projects and published several papers in national and international conferences and journals. J. Lladós is an active member of the Image Analysis and Pattern Recognition Spanish Association (AERFAI), a member society of the IAPR. He is currently the chairman of the IAPR-ILC (Industrial Liaison Committee). Formerly he served as chairman of the IAPR TC-10, the Technical Committee on Graphics Recognition, and also he is a member of the IAPR TC-11 (reading Systems) and IAPR TC-15 (Graph based Representations). He serves on the Editorial Board of the ELCVIA (Electronic Letters on Computer Vision and Image Analysis) and the IJDAR (International Journal in Document Analysis and Recognition), and also a PC member of a number of international conferences. He was the recipient of the IAPRICDAR Young Investigator Award in 2007. Josep Lladós has also experience in technological transfer and in 2002 he created the company ICAR Vision Systems, a spin-off of the Computer Vision Center working on Document Image Analysis, after win the entrepreneurs award from the Catalonia Government on business projects on Information Society Technologies in 2000.
