News & events

  • Busy times: Quite some people were/are defending a Ph.D. thesis these days. Good for them, work for me!

  • I accepted a call (again!) for the W3 collaborative professorship on Mathematical and Appplied Visual Computing (yes, I need to update that page!) at TU Darmstadt, in combination with my reseach work at Fraunhofer IGD.

  • I have been elected as President of the Executive Committee of the International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR) 2022--2024. IGD made a nice webnews of it.

  • I've (again) been involved in the organization of a Vater Tochter Wochenende (Father Daugther weekend) of der 4te Musketier . Of course I'll be active in Father Son weekends as well!

  • Another hobby: preaching and teaching. Either at church preaching or at TU Darmstadt.

  • Editorial Board member:
  • Papers: Please check DBLP for the most relevant ones and see this pdf for a complete list.

    Short CV

    Arjan Kuijper received a MSc in 1995 from the Department of Applied Mathematics, University of Twente, the Netherlands.
    In 1996 - 1997 he was software analyst, consultant and advisor at ELTRA Parking Group, a company that sells and maintains handheld computers and related software.
    October 1997 he started his PhD studies at the Department of Computer Science and Mathematics, Utrecht University, the Netherlands, resulting in a PhD on The Deep Structure of Gaussian Scale Space Images in 2002.
    October 2001 he became researcher, and April 2002 post-doc on 3D multi-modality matching, both at the same university.
    January 2003 he became assistant research professor in The Image Group of the IT University of Copenhagen at the DSSCV project working on Symmetry Sets and pre-Symmetry Sets.
    October 2005 he was scientific consultant at the Wolfgang Pauli Institute, Vienna.
    In November 2005 he started as senior researcher at the Johann Radon Institute for Computational and Applied Mathematics (RICAM), Linz, Austria, in the group Analysis of Partial Differential Equations, working on PDE approaches for image and shape analysis.
    Since November 2008 he is reseach coach, managing scientific dissemination, at the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research (IGD) in Darmstadt. In addition to that, he is lecturer at the TU Darmstadt.
    In 2009 he obtained his venia legendi at the TU Graz (AT) with a Habilitation thesis entitled "Deep Structure, Singularities, and Computer Vision", assigning him as "Privatdozent (PD)" to the ICG group at TUG, a status that was transferred to the TU Darmtadt in 2010.
    From August 2015 - July 2021 he held a 6-year W3 cooperative professorship in Mathematical and Appplied Visual Computing at TU Darmstadt.
    As interim solution Aug 2021 - Aug 2023, plan B was again the affiliation as "Privatdozent (PD)".
    As of September 2023 he holds a permanent W3 cooperative professorship in Mathematical and Appplied Visual Computing at TU Darmstadt.
    He is author of over 450 peer-reviewed publications, and serves as reviewer for many journals and conferences, and as program committee member and organizer of conferences. His research interests cover all aspects of mathematics-based methods for computer vision, graphics, interaction, and visualization.
