Curriculum Vitae

André Kaup received the Dipl.-Ing. and Dr.-Ing. degrees in electrical engineering from RWTH Aachen University, Aachen, Germany, in 1989 and 1995, respectively.

He was with the Institute for Communication Engineering, RWTH Aachen University, from 1989 to 1995, where he was responsible for industrial as well as academic research projects in the area of high resolution printed image compression, object-based image analysis and coding, and models for human perception. In 1995, he joined the Networks and Multimedia Communications Department, Siemens Corporate Technology, Munich, Germany, where he chaired work packages in several European research projects in the areas of very low bit rate video coding, image quality enhancement, and mobile multimedia communications. In 1999, he was appointed the Head of the Mobile Applications and Services Group in the same department with research focusing on multimedia adaptation for heterogeneous communication networks. Since 2001, he is a Full Professor and the Head of the Chair of Multimedia Communications and Signal Processing, University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany.

From 1997 to 2001, he was the Head of the German MPEG delegation, and from 1998 to 2001 he also served as Adjunct Professor with the Technical University of Munich, Germany, and the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg. From 2005 to 2007 he was a Vice Speaker of the DFG Collaborative Research Center 603 “Modeling and Analysis of Complex Scenes and Sensor Data”. Since 2014 he is chairing the ITG Technical Committee on Image Communication and Image Processing and a member of the scientific advisory board of the VDE. Since 2015 his serves as Head of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Vice Dean of the Faculty of Engineering.

Dr. Kaup is a member of the Multimedia Signal Processing Technical Committee of the IEEE Signal Processing Society, a voting member of the Multimedia Communications Technical Committee of the IEEE Communications Society, a member of the German ITG, and a Fellow of the IEEE. He serves as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology and was a Guest Editor for the IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Signal Processing. He was elected Siemens Inventor of the year 1998 and was the recipient of the 1999 ITG Award. He received Best Paper Awards at the IEEE International Workshops on Multimedia Signal Processing in 2009, 2011, and 2012 and the International Workshop on Image Analysis for Multimedia Interactive Services in 2010. In 2013 he was recipient of the Paul Dan Cristea Special Award at the International Conference on Systems, Signals and Image Processing, and his team won the Grand Video Compression Challenge at the 2013 Picture Coding Symposium. The Faculty of Engineering at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg honored him with the Teaching Award in 2015.

He has authored around 300 journal and conference papers and has over 50 patents granted and patent applications published. His current research interests include image and video signal processing, coding of images, video, and multiview data, as well as multimedia communication.
