Chellappa will also participate as a lecturer in a summer workshop on Advanced Studies on Biometrics for Secure Authentication in Sardigna, Italy on Tuesday, June 12. The workshop will explore new technological developments in recognition and authentication systems based on biometric measurements. For more information, visit http://biometrics.uniss.it/.

Chellappa has been in the news recently for his intelligent surveillance system that is based on pattern recognition and biometrics technology. He and his graduate student, Aravind Sundaresan, were also recently awarded the University of Maryland Invention of the Year prize for their "Markerless Motion Capture" technology.
