Manuel M. Oliveira is a Full Professor of Computer Science at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), in Brazil. He received his PhD from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, in 2000. Before joining UFRGS in 2002, he was an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at the State University of New York at Stony Brook (2000 to 2002). In the 2009-2010 academic year, he was a Visiting Associate Professor at the MIT Media Lab. His research interests cover most aspects of visual computing, but especially the frontiers among graphics, image processing, computational photography, and vision (both human and machine). In these areas, he has contributed a variety of techniques including relief texture mapping, real-time filtering in high-dimensional spaces, efficient algorithms for Hough transform, new physiologically-based models for color perception and pupil-light reflex, and novel interactive techniques for measuring visual acuity. Dr. Oliveira was program co-chair of the ACM SIGGRAPH Symposium on Interactive 3D Graphics and Games 2010 (I3D 2010), and general co-chair of ACM I3D 2009. He is an Associate Editor of ACM Transactions on Graphics, a former Associate Editor of IEEE TVCG (2015-2019) and IEEE CG&A (2014-2018), and a member of the CIE Technical Committee TC1-89 “Enhancement of Images for Colour Defective Observers". He received the ACM Recognition of Service Award in 2009 and in 2010, and the “Pesquisador Gaúcho” Award from the Rio Grande do Sul State in 2016 for Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science.
