Computational Optical Sensing and Imaging (COSI)

22 - 26 June 2014
The Fairmont Orchid, Kohala Coast, Hawaii, USA
Computational Optical Sensing and Imaging (COSI)

COSI meeting consists of topics that range from theoretical to experimental demonstration and verification of the latest advances in computation imaging research. This meeting covers subject matter in fundamental physics, numerical methods and physical hardware that has led to significant improvements in the fields of imaging and sensing for medical, defense, homeland security, inspection, testing applications.

COSI is an important discipline being applied to solve numerous problems in modern optics and the techniques developed in this field have already been incorporated in to numerous commercial products.  This meeting places particular emphasis on integrated analysis of physical layer measurement and digital layer processing. In contrast with the conventional model of a “digital image” as simply a discretely sampled version of an analog image, COSI considers advanced opportunities for image data coding and decoding in optical, electronic and software layers.

The Coconut Grove at The Fairmont Orchid
Join us in the Coconut Grove for some of Hawaii’s best entertainment and island food. The reception luau is open to committee/presenting author/student and full conference attendees. Conference attendees may purchase extra tickets for their guest.
Joint Poster Sessions
Tuesday, 24 June
Posters are an integral part of the technical program and offer a unique networking opportunity, where presenters can discuss their results one-to-one with interested parties. Each author is provided with a 4 ft. × 8 ft. (1.22 m × 2.44 m) board on which to display the summary and results of his or her paper.
