    Erik Reinhard received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Bristol in 2000, having worked on his Ph.D. for three years at Delft University of Technology, prior to a further three years in Bristol. Following a post-doctoral position at the University of Utah (2000-2002) and assistant professor at the University of Central Florida (2002-2005), he returned to Bristol as a lecturer in January 2006. Erik founded the prestigious ACM Transactions on Applied Perception, and has been Editor-in-Chief since its inception in 2003, until early 2009. He is also guest editor for a special issue on HDRI for Elsevier’s Journal of Visual Communication and Image Representation (2007). He is lead author of ‘High Dynamic Range Imaging: Acquisition, Display, and Image-Based Lighting’. He was program chair for Eurographics PGV 2002 and ACM APGV 2006, He is also program co-chair for the short papers program of the Eurographics main conference in 2008. He was invited speaker for the Society for Information Display’s main conference (2007) and keynote speaker for Eurographics 2010.
