Vitomir Struc received his PhD degree in electrical engineering from the University of Ljubljana in 2010. He is currently working as an Associate Professor at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering at the University of Ljubljana Slovenia, where he lectures the following courses on various Bologna levels: Signal Processing, Signal Analysis, Speech and Image Technologies, Seminar on Biometric Systems, Language and Web Technologies and Random Signals and Processes. Vitomir’s research centers around artificial intelligence, pattern recognition, deep learning, biometrics, face recognition, emotion recognition, signal processing, machine learning, computer vision and other related areas. He participiated in numerous nationally and EU-funded projects as a PI or project group member and published more than 100 papers in reputable peer-reviewed journals and top-tier conferences.

Dr. Štruc currently serves as an associate editor for IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security, Pattern Recognition, Signal Processing and IET Biometrics. He was an associate editor for IET Computer Vision, a section editor for the IEEE Biometrics Compendium and edited two special issues in Image and Vision Computing and one in IET Biometrics. Vitomir served as an Area Chair for WACV 2018, 2019, 2020, ICPR 2018, Eusipco 2019 and FG 2020. Vitomir regularly collaborates on organizing committees of international conferences, such as WACV, FG, IJCB, and others. He was one of the main organizers of the B-Wild series of workshops in 2015 and 2017, the local arrangement chair of the IEEE International Conference on Automatic Face and Gesture Recognition 2015 in Ljubljana. He currently serves as a Program Co-chair for the IEEE/IAPR International Joint Conference on Biometrics IJCB 2020.

Dr. Štruc is an active reviewer for prestigious international journals such as: IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence, IEEE Transactions on Image Processing, IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks and Learning Systems, IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security, Pattern Recognition.
