Dr. Hossam E. Abd El Munim received the BSc and MS degrees in electrical engineering from Ain Shams University, Egypt, in 1995 and 2000, respectively. He received his PhD degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Louisville, Louisville, Kentucky. He joined the Computer Vision and Image Processing Laboratory (CVIP Lab) at the University of Louisville on June 2002, where he has been involved in the applications of image processing and computer vision for medical image analysis. He is now an Associate Professor at the Computer and Systems Engineering Department, Faculty of Engineering, Ain Shams University in Cairo, Egypt. His current research interests include image modelling, image segmentation, 2D and 3D registration, visualization, and surgical simulation, about which he has authored or co-authored more than 30 technical articles including ICIP, MICCAI, ICCV, CVPR, BMVC, and TIP, TPAMI. He received an excellence in visualization award from Silicon Graphics in 2004, a US National Science Foundation travel grant to attend the International Conference on Computer Vision (ICCV) on 2005, and a first place in the University of Louisville Engineering Competition (E-Expo) in 2006. Also, he was awarded the Outstanding ECE Graduate Student Award in the University of Louisville, 2007.
