The President of the Republic of Poland conferred the title of professor of engineering and technical sciences in the discipline of information and communication technology on the researcher from the Faculty of Technical Physics, Information Technology and Applied Mathematics.


Prof. Adam Wojciechowski graduated with a degree in information technology from the Faculty of FTIMS. He earned his degree 25 years ago and has been professionally affiliated with the Faculty ever since. In 2016-2020 he served as Vice Dean for Development and Cooperation with Business. In 2020 he was appointed Dean.

He received his doctoral degree from the Faculty of Automation, Electronics and Computer Science, Silesian University of Technology, and his postdoctoral degree from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science, Czestochowa University of Technology.


Prof. Wojciechowski's scholarly pursuits include broadly defined multimodal human-computer interaction, artificial intelligence, computer graphics and computer vision. He applies artificial intelligence to improve brain-computer and vision interfaces, to refine immersive interfaces in cognitive and motor rehabilitation, semantic image analysis, and effective simulation of atmospheric phenomena for photorealistic image synthesis. He has authored and co-authored more than 100 research papers and has been the leader or member of 20 R&D projects completed in cooperation with business in Poland and abroad. He has held fellowships in France, the United Kingdom, and Slovakia.

Practical applications and scholarly impact of the research

Prof. Adam Wojciechowski's research findings have been put to practical use in the motion picture and gaming industries.
The innovative algorithms for stereoscopic image quality assessment and automated 3D movie production, commercialized in CinemaVision technology, have improved many film productions and garnered recognition at international industry festivals in the US and in Korea.

Immersive interface research has led to the development of virtual reality environments for cognitive and motor rehabilitation of aging people. The project known by the acronym GRYDSEN has been awarded many gold medals at international trade shows in Canada, Japan, France, Thailand, and China, as well as many national awards.

The interface to facilitate the stimulation of motor functions during functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) has been commended by the Happy Kids Foundation for having a real impact on lowering the age limit at which fMRI is effective.
Currently, prof. Wojciechowski is engaged in an international project by the acronym ReHaB. The project is aimed at integrating brain-computer interface functionalities with a virtual environment for the rehabilitation of post-stroke patients.

The research to advance artificial intelligence methods facilitated the development of human-computer interaction commercial products and has also contributed to the advancement of METERNET EnMS technology, designed to rationalize electricity and heat consumption in buildings, optimize utilization of renewable energy sources, and strive towards low-carbon industrial processes.

Research staff career development

On a day-to-day basis, prof. Adam Wojciechowski does his research in two research labs at the Institute of Information Technology at FTIMS. They are Computer Graphics and Computer Vision Lab and Data Analysis and Human-Computer Interaction Lab. Both collaborate closely with research establishments in Poland and in the UK, Germany, Spain, Montenegro, Slovakia, Switzerland, Israel, Latvia, and Ukraine.

The methods of artificial intelligence that are being developed are being applied to enhance voice and video interface security. They also solve problems of semantic analysis of point clouds and images. The innovations offered by the professor's research group contribute to the security and efficiency of user interfaces in an era when artificial intelligence standards are yet to be established. They also address the challenges of effective analysis of laser scans from drones, airplanes, and vehicles traveling on roads or rails, with implications for the automation and autonomization of many processes.

He has served as a doctoral supervisor for 4 completed and 3 pending doctoral dissertations and more than 100 lower degree theses. He has been a reviewer in 13 doctoral and 4 post-doctoral proceedings. He holds editorial positions in Expert Systems and Human Technology journals and serves on the scientific committees of many international scientific conferences.

Professional affiliations and engagement

Since 2020, prof. Adam Wojciechowski has been a member of the Digital Multimedia Section of the Committee on Informatics of the Polish Academy of Sciences. He co-created first in Poland specialization centered around computer games technologies at Lodz University of Technology, and has been co-organizing the national team computer game design competition from its very conception. He chairs the Rector's Panel for the Development of Artificial Intelligence and is a member of the ITT Discipline Council and the Academic Degrees Council. He has collaborated extensively with TUL's socio-economic environment for over 10 years as a TUL representative in the ICT Cluster Central Poland.
