Short Biography:
Prof. Ebner received the M.S. degree in computer science from New York University, NY, in 1994, the degree Dipl.-Inform. from the Universität Stuttgart, Germany, in 1996 and the degree Dr. rer. nat. from the Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen, Germany, in 1999. He received the venia legendi in 2006 from the Julius Maximilians Universität Würzburg, Germany. He is a recipient of a Heisenberg Scholarship from the German Research Foundation (DFG). In October 2011, he became full professor of computer science. He is author of over 60 peer-reviewed publications and is a frequent speaker at international conferences; particularly on areas such as machine intelligence, computer vision, biologically inspired systems and genetic programming. Dr. Ebner is author of the first textbook on color constancy, i.e. algorithms for automatic white balance which try to mimic human color perception.
