Scott McCloskey

Assistant Director of Computer Vision

Dr. Scott McCloskey serves as an assistant director of the Computer Vision Team. Prior to joining Kitware, Dr. McCloskey was a technical fellow at Honeywell, where he served as the principal investigator (PI) on a number of commercial and contract-funded projects in computer vision and computational imaging. A theme of this work was the application of computational imaging techniques to a diverse set of sensing problems, including biometric (iris) image capture, barcode scanning, and media forensics. His government-funded work served customers, including DARPA, IARPA, and DoD agencies, which have since been incorporated into the Defense Forensics and Biometrics Agency (DFBA). Scott’s commercial work addressed problems in visual surveillance, biometrics, barcode scanning, and visual metrology. This last topic launched Honeywell’s AutoCube 8200 product, a structured light 3D camera whose associated software accurately measures parcels for postal and logistics customers. Scott’s work at Honeywell resulted in 40+ patents, in addition to the technical publications listed below.

Dr. McCloskey remains actively involved with technical conferences in the computer vision and computational imaging communities. He has served as general chair, program chair, and area chair for the IEEE Winter Conference on the Applications of Computer Vision (WACV); as the industrial relations chair, corporate relations chair, and area chair for the premier computer vision conferences including the IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR) and International Conference on Computer Vision (ICCV).  He was the workshops chair for the International Joint Conference on Biometrics (IJCB) and has been a reviewer for several other high-profile conferences, including the European Conference on Computer Vision (ECCV) and the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI). He has also served as a reviewer for journals including IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence (PAMI), International Journal of Computer Vision (IJCV), Machine Vision and Applications (MVA), IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security (TIFS), and served on a National Science Foundation review panel.

Dr. McCloskey received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from McGill University in 2008, his M.S. in computer science from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 2002, and his B.S. in computer science and mathematics from the University of Wisconsin – Madison in 1998.  Between his undergraduate and Ph.D., and in parallel with the completion of his M.S., Scott worked in the research laboratory at Eastman Kodak in Rochester, New York.  While at Kodak, he completed the Image Science Career Development program and contributed to computer vision projects in compression, remote sensing, and film scanning.

He has several research publications in the premier peer-reviewed conferences and journals. A list of his publications is provided below and on Google Scholar profile
