The 2014 Data Fusion Contest of the IEEE GRSS Image Analysis and Data Fusion Technical Committee is starting!
The Master of Science program in Multimedia Signal Processing and Telecommunication Networks has been active at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Genoa since the current academic year 2011/2012. Foreign students, who possess a B.Sc. degree (or equivalent) and are interested in pursuing their studies in the ICT field, are very welcome. For more information please visit the website of the M.Sc. program.

Gabriele Moser was born in Genoa in 1977. He received (summa cum laude) the "laurea" degree (M.Sc. equivalent) in telecommunications engineering and the Ph.D. degree in space sciences and engineering from the University of Genoa, in 2001 and 2005, respectively. Since November 2010, he is Assistant Professor of Telecommunications at the University of Genoa.

He was granted the "Alessandro and Rinaldo Viviani" laurea thesis award issued by the Italian Electrical and Electronic Association (AEI) and the 2010 Best Paper Award at the 2010 IEEE-WHISPERS workshop (Reykjavic, Iceland).
He has been cooperating since 2001 with the IPRS research team lead by Prof. S. B. Serpico at the University of Genoa. In 2004 he was a visiting student at the "Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et en Automatique" (INRIA, Sophia Antipolis Méditerranée, France). From 2005 and 2009 he was a postdoc research fellow ("assegnista") at the Department of Biophysical and Electronic Engineering (DIBE) of the University of Genoa and at the Department of Earth Sciences of the University of Florence. He is currently the head of the Remote sensIng for envirOnment and Sustainability laboratory (RIOS, Savona University Campus) within 
the Methods and Systems for Signal Processing and Recognition operational unit lead by Prof. Serpico at DITEN.

Dr. Moser is the (co)author of more than 100 scientific publications in journals, international edited books, and conference proceedings. He has been an Associate Editor of the international journals IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Letters (GRSL) and Pattern Recognition Letters (PRL) since 2008 and 2011, respectively. He has been a reviewer for several international journals, including GRSL, PRL, the IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing, the IEEE Transactions on Image Processing, the IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Applied Earth Observations and Remote Sensing, and Remote Sensing of Environment. His research activity is focused on pattern-recognition and image-analysis methodologies for remote-sensing data interpretation. His current research interests include Markov random fields, synthetic aperture radar data modeling, kernel-based methods for classification and regression, change detection, and geo/biophysical parameter estimation.

He is the Chairman of the
IEEE GRSS Image Analysis and Data Fusion Technical Committee.

Since 2007 he has been the teacher of the course "Vector space transformation techniques for multivariate statistical analysis" for the Ph.D. School in Sciences and Technologies of Information and Communications at the University of Genoa. He has been teaching image processing and remote sensing courses at the University of Genoa since 2010 and he has been collaborating since 2001 to the teaching activities of several telecommunications, pattern-recognition, and remote-sensing courses at the University of Genoa. He is the author of the books "Analisi di immagini telerilevate per osservazione della Terra" (literally, "Remote-sensing image analysis for Earth observation"; ECIG publisher, 2007) and "Tecniche di trasformazione di spazi vettoriali per analisi statistica multidimensionale" (ECIG publisher, 2010).

Dr. Moser has been involved in the technical and management activities of several scientific and applicative projects related to the exploitation of remote-sensing data. He participated in several MIUR-PRIN programs, focused on hyperspectral (PRIN-2001) and multitemporal (PRIN-2002) remote-sensing image analysis, on geophysical parameter estimation (PRIN-2003), and on data fusion (PRIN-2005). He has been involved in projects funded by the Italian Space Agency on SAR image processing (SARIS program, 2004), flood prevention and management (OPERA program, 2007-2010), and multirisk monitoring of urban areas and infrastructures, by the Italian Department for Civil Protection (PROSCENIO program, 2005-2008), by the European Union (ENDORSE program, FP7-SPACE, 2011-2013), and by the Liguria Region (SEAGOSS and RIMA programs, ongoing).

He is a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS), the Italian Association of Electrical, Electronic, Automation, Computer Science, and Telecommunications (AEIT), the Italian Assocation for Telecommunications and Information Theory (GTTI), the Italian Group of Researchers in Pattern Recognition (GIRPR), and the National Interuniversity Consortium in Telecommunications (CNIT).
