Since 1995 she has been with the Institute of Information Theory and Automation, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, Prague. She was appointed the head of the department on the 1st January 2008. She gives tutorials on Image Processing and Pattern Recognition at the Czech Technical University. Jointly with J. Flusser she gives specialized graduate course on moment invariants and wavelets at the Charles University and at the Czech Technical University.
Barbara Zitova has more than an 15-years experience in digital image processing. She is an author of a book chapter in Invariants for Pattern Recognition and Classification (M.A. Rodrigues ed., World Scientific, 2000), co-author of a monograpgh "Flusser Jan, Suk Tomáš, Zitová Barbara : Moments and Moment Invariants in Pattern Recognition, Wiley & sons, (Chichester 2009)"", and of 50 journal and conference papers on moment invariants and related topics. Her paper "Image Registration Methods: A Survey", Image and Vision Computing, vol. 21, pp. 977-1000, 2003, has became a major reference in image registration with more than 2000 citations.
