Research Groups in Computer Vision, Image Processing and Related Topics

If you know where a researcher is from you can usually find more information on their work. Research group web sites (especially university sites) usually provide links to individuals in the group, descriptions of recent (and often past) work, and papers by members of that group (both past and present). The group sites are the best source for finding specific information and for making contact with the individual researchers. This page lists research groups by country (alphabetical by the common (American) English name of the country). Each entry also includes a link to the people, known to the bibliography, that are in that group (based on the email or web address). Groups listed here are probably larger than a single research group. A university with multiple different groups should have one entry here.

Computer Vision resources include:
