    Joao P. Barreto holds a Ph.D. degree from the University of Coimbra (UC). He was visiting scholar in INRIA Rhone-Alpes, Grenoble, France, and a postdoctoral researcher in the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, before joining the UC as a Professor. Joao is an acknowledged expert in camera modeling and multi-view 3D reconstruction, being the author of more than 80 peer-reviewed articles in the most prestigious journals and conferences. He is the recipient of several academic distinctions and awards including the “Google Faculty Research Award”, was Area Chair in ECCV’2018 and currently serves as Associate Editor in the journals “Computer Vision and Image Understanding”, “Image and Vision Computing” and “Journal of Mathematical Image and Vision. Joao is also an entrepreneur having co-founded Perceive3D SA (P3D) in 2013. P3D builds in advanced knowledge in computer vision to provide advanced systems for improving visualization and guiding the surgeon during minimally invasive orthopedic procedures. Joao has been the CEO of P3D since foundation being responsible for R&D, Business Development and Investor Relations. The company has raised so far 1M€ in private capital and more than 2M€ in R&D grants having been recently awarded with the prestigious SMEi Phase 2 from the EU commission.
