Imaging Systems and Applications (IS)
IS brings together experts working in the integration of optics, sensing, image processing and display rendering.
The scope of this meeting encompasses all aspects modern digital imaging. The meeting emphasizes applications that exploit the advantages of digital images, such as techniques that can be used to enhance the visual appearance, to extract important information automatically, to compressively format for data storage and transmission and to optimize image data for display, or that overcome challenges of digital images, such as limited dynamic range, depth of field, spatio-temporal resolution and depth of field. The meeting includes advances and application of image processing for scene segmentation, image analysis, compression, reconstruction and quality assessment, image enhancement, pattern/target recognition, and applications of image analysis to visual and industrial/military applications such as manufactured product inspection, target tracking and motion estimation. Results from studies in using digital imagery to extract tomographic, volumetric, time resolved, and super-resolved imagery information are within the scope of papers to be presented.
Applications cover military, industrial, medical and consumer imaging. Investigations of military imaging in all bands and in the applications of target acquisition, intelligence-surveillance-reconnaissance (ISR), and persistent surveillance are within the scope of this meeting. Amateur and professional photography, imaging for robotics and process control imaging are further examples of topics relevant to this meeting. The application of the latest advances in computational, adaptive, and compressive imaging in new imaging system demonstrations will also be presented at this meeting. Human interaction with imaging systems and the display of imaging information for overall system performance will also be included. Progress and status of industrial, medical, and consumer imaging is will be reviewed and future trends and requirements will be presented.
