Information Technology University The University of Western Australia

Dr. Arif Mahmood received his MS and PhD in Computer Science from the Lahore University of
Management Sciences (LUMS), winning a gold medal along the way and graduating with academic
distinction. His PhD thesis was on “Computation Elimination Algorithms for Correlation Based Fast
Template Matching.” He has served as a Research Assistant Professor at the School of Computer
Science and Software Engineering, and then later at the School of Mathematics and Statistics in the  University of Western Australia. Previously, he was an Assistant Professor at the Punjab University  College of Information Technology from 2008 to 2012. He also worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher at  the College of Engineering in Qatar University. In 2011, Dr. Mahmood received a large grant from the  University of Punjab and established an image processing research facility by purchasing state-of-the- art video and still cameras, workstations and other required apparatus. In 2015 he successfully 

authored Linkage Project grant from Australian Research Council (ARC): “Machine Learning for 

Fracture Risk Assessment from Simple Radiography" with industry partners. He has excellent teaching  and research experience at several national and international institutes. He was Program Committee  member in FIT 2017 and in the 2nd International Workshop on “Robust Subspace Learning and 

Applications in Computer Vision” in conjunction with ICCV 2017, and ICCV 2019. His major research 

interests include data clustering, classification, action and object recognition using image sets. He has  also worked on computation elimination algorithms for fast template matching, video compression,  object removal and image mosaicking. At the School of Mathematics and Statistics, he worked on  community detection in complex networks. He has been publishing extensively in prestigious journals  including IEEE TPAMI, IJCV, IEEE TIP, IEEE TCSVT, IEEE TCC, IEEE TSC, Information Fusion and  IEEE TKDE. He has presented his work at over 17 conferences worldwide including very prestigious  conference such as CVPR, ECCV, ACCV, BMVC, and WACV.
