Benoit Michel is a Belgian engineer born in 1950.[1] He is the author or co-author of more than 20 technical books on microcomputing, cinema, and stereoscopy.


Michel received his degree in civil engineering from Université de Liège, Belgium, 1976 .[2]

Professional history[edit]

Michel co-founded “Neurones”, one of the first 3D cartoon studios in Europe in 1989. After that, he switched to R&D project management in telecommunications, human-machine interaction, digital cinema, and multimedia and is now at UCL, successively managing the SIMILAR[3] network of excellence on multimodal interfaces, the EDCINE[4] project on enhanced digital cinema, the 3D Media research project focusing on stereoscopic and 3D imaging. He is now working on a medical imaging project called "InVivo/IGT"[5] improving the way 3D images are driving proton therapy machines to cure cancer.

He is a member of the editorial board of ERCIM News,[6] and is working as a consultant for the European Commission, the TWIST cluster[7] of Walloon companies, and various private companies and he is the editor of the free “StereoscopyNews” newsletter.[8] He is co-founder of The European Spaceward Association,[9] a non-profit association with a goal to preserve and improve life on earth by going into space.
