Claus-E. Liedtke was born in Leipzig, Germany, on March 21, 1942. He received the Diplom degree in 1968 and the Dr.-Ing. degree in 1972, both in electrical engineering from the Technische Universitaet Berlin, Germany.

From 1973 to 1976 he had an appointment as Assistant Professor in the Departments of Computer Sciences and Laboratory Medicine and Pathology at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA. Since 1977 he is Professor for Digital Signal Processing in the Department of Electrical Engineering at the Universitaet Hannover. In 1985 he lectured as visiting professor at the Zheijang University in Hangzhou/ China. His current professional interests cover systems for knowledge based analysis of images, image sequences and multsensory data, automated knowledge acquisition techniques, systems for knowledge based system configuration, and applications in the areas of modelling of 3D-scenes, remote sensing, and industrial automation.

He is author and co-author of about 90 publications including a text-book, has received approximately 30 major grants from the German Science Foundation, several ministries of the German Federal Government, the European Community, and the industry, and he has worked as consultant for several industrial and public institutions.

He is a member of the European Association for Signal Processing (EURASIP), the European Association for Computer Graphics (EUROGRAPHICS), the German Association of Computer Sciences (GI), and the German Association of Information Technology (ITG). Besides he is member of the Editorial Board of the journal "Signal Processing", chairman of the working group on Pattern Recognition within the ITG, and member of the Technical Committee of the DAGM (German Association for Pattern Recognition).
