Imaging Systems and Applications (IS)

Imaging Systems and Applications (IS)

13 - 17 July 2014
Sheraton Seattle Hotel, Seattle, Washington, USA

IS saturate all aspects of our lives and Research and Development activities, and includes each part of the stationary or mobile imaging system chains from light gathering optics, image capturing sensors, sensor and chip architecture, on and off chip digital processing, compression, storage and transmission, and the final display technology ranging from hard copy to interactive displays.

The Imaging Systems and Applications (IS) meeting captures all the leading edge research, engineering and systems design of the ever growing integration of optics, sensors and digital processing into commercial, military, entertainment, research and communication products that affect our lives and populate our laboratories and homes.  Unique light gathering optics, new image sensor architectures and technology, advanced on and off chip digital image processing, and advanced compression and transmission of large images is covered by IS.  Leading edge uses of imaging systems in microscopy, invasive and non-invasive surgery, remote sensing, astronomical observations,  imaging from the far flung universe as well as nearby planets, digital cinematography capture and projection, computational photography and consumer imaging are all topics of interest at IS.  A complete list of suggested topics for papers is given below, but other emerging use of optics and sensors are welcomed.

Symposium on Digital Image Processing and Analysis

The number of images that are sensed, stored and displayed digitally continues to increase dramatically in virtually every imaging system from video endoscopes and digital phones to digital cameras to remote-sensing satellites and astronomical telescopes. A major important feature of digital images is that they lend themselves to various processing techniques that can be used to enhance the visual appearance, extract important information automatically, format for data storage and transmission and optimize the image data for display. Optical system design can no longer be confined merely to exploit the physics of light but must also include the processing of digital information. The two day Digital Image Processing and Analysis (DIPA) Symposium will provide a forum for forefront research on various topics related to digital image processing and analysis. The technologies included within the scope of this symposium include all the topics listed in the Digital Image processing category #3. Those interested in contributing a paper for the Symposium should submit their papers in category #3.
