Gösta H. Granlund received the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Chalmers Institute of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden, in 1966 and 1970 respectively. In 1974 he received the Docent degree from Chalmers Institute of Technology.

From 1966 to 1970 he was working with SAAB Electronics Division on computer systems and control systems, as well as working on his Ph.D. thesis at Chalmers Institute of Technology. In 1970 he came to MIT, first as a postdoctoral fellow and later employed as a member of the research staff, where he worked on biomedical image analysis, such as automatic karyotyping of chromosomes. In 1972 he became Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering at Linköping University, Sweden. He spent 1974-1975 as a Visiting Professor at MIT. Since 1982 he is Professor of Electrical Engineering at Linköping University. During the academic year 1990-1991 he was again visiting at MIT.

Dr. Granlund has been Head of the Computer Vision Laboratory of Linköping University, working on various image processing problems such as reconstruction, multidimensional information representation, adaptive feedback and relaxation methods, learning systems and hierarchical parallel processing structures. He has co-authored or contributed to 4 books on Computer Vision methods. He has written or co-authored more than 120 articles or conference papers within the field of Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition, and he has given international courses within this field. He has 7 patents.

Dr. Granlund is a member of several professional societies, and he was a founding member as well as President of the European Association for Signal Processing (EURASIP). He has participated in the organisation of several international conferences within the field. He is member of the editorial board for several international journals. He has also been working as a consultant for several international companies in the field of Image Processing and Pattern Recognition. From the work of the laboratory, a spin-off company ContextVision was formed in 1983. The company produces and markets computer vision systems worldwide.

The Computer Vision Laboratory has participated in several international cooperation projects such as in the ESPRIT programme and the EUREKA programme, as well as in The International Consortium for Medical Imaging Technology, ICMIT.

Among particular contributions can be mentioned the article:

G. H. Granlund: In Search of a General Picture Processing Operator, Computer Graphics and Image Processing, Vol 8, pp 155 - 173, 1978.

This paper describes the first documented use in Computer Vision of spatially local transforms, which later became known as Gabor functions or Wavelets.
