Charles Dyer is Professor Emeritus of Computer Sciences and Biostatistics and Medical Informatics at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, where he was on the faculty from 1982 to 2017. He served as Chair of the Department of Computer Sciences from 1990 to 1993, and as Associate Chair from 1987 to 1990. He received his Ph.D. degree in computer science from the University of Maryland in 1979, his M.S. degree in computer science from UCLA in 1974, and his B.S. degree in mathematical sciences from Stanford University in 1973. He worked in the field of computer vision for over 35 years and published over 150 technical papers. His research spanned a broad range of topics in computer vision and image analysis including 2D and 3D shape and image representations such as quadtrees, aspect graphs, and pyramid algorithms; 3D scene reconstruction; computational photography; object and face recognition; texture analysis; and image segmentation.

Dr. Dyer is a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and a Fellow of the International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR). He was awarded the Visiting Fellowship at Exeter College, University of Oxford for 1999-2000. He was an associate editor of the journals Machine Vision and Applications and IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence. He was General Co-Chair of the 2003 Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition Conference, and Program Co-Chair of this same conference in 1996. Finally, he is a member of the Alumni Hall of Fame in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Maryland.
