Azeddine Beghdadi works as a Professor at the University of Paris 13 (Institut Galilée), Villetaneuse, France, and Director of L2TI laboratory where he does all his research in Image and video processing. He started his undergraduate studies at ENSEP and Physics Institute at University Es-Senia Oran, Oran, Algeria. After completing the six first semesters (S1-S6 credits), he went to Paris to complete his graduate studies at ENSTelecom Paris and University Paris 11 (Orsay). He received the Maitrise degree in physics and Diplôme d'Etudes Approfondies in optics and signal processing from University Orsay-Paris XI (equivalent : Master of Science) in June 1982 and June 1983, respectively, and a Ph.D. degree in physics (specialism: optics and signal processing) from University Paris 6 in June 1986. Dr. Beghdadi worked at different places including the Groupe d'Analyse d'Images Biomédicales (CNAM Paris ) and Laboratoire d'Optique des Solides (University of Paris 6). From 1987 to 1989, he has been an Assistant Associé (Assistant Professor) at University Paris 13. During the period 1987-1998, he was with LPMTM CNRS Laboratory working on scanning electron microscope (SEM) materials image analysis. He published over 180 international refereed scientific papers. He is a founding member and director of the L2TI Laboratory. His research interests include image quality enhancement and assessment, compression, bioinspired models for image analysis, and physics-based image analysis. Dr. Beghdadi has served as Conference Chair of ISSPA 2003, Technical Chair of ISSPA 2005, Track Chair of ISSPA 2007 and Founder Member and General Cochair of the European Workshop on Visual Information Processing and Analysis. He also served as session organizer and a member of the organizing and technical committees for many IEEE conferences. Dr. Beghdadi is a Senior Member of IEEE and EURASIP Member.
