Mission Statement

The INTELSIG research unit of the EECS Department, University of Liège, is concerned with the acquisition, processing, and exploitation of signals occurring in a variety of contexts and applications. Examples of signals of interest to us are acoustical signals, static images, video sequences, radar signals, and medical imagery. Examples of applications of interest include prediction of acoustical characteristics in architectural design, videosurveillance, automatic analysis of sports TV broadcasts, autonomous robotics, gestural human-computer interaction, radar space-time adaptive processing, and image-guided surgery.
