3D Image Acquisition and Display: Technology, Perception and Applications

3D Image Acquisition and Display: Technology, Perception and Applications

25 - 28 July 2016
Kongresshaus Stadthalle Heidelberg, Heidelberg, Germany

3-D image acquisition and display technology have become critical for many applications, including virtual reality and augmented reality, medical and scientific visualization, defense, flight simulation and training, engineering design, and entertainment. This topical meeting aims to bring together researchers and engineers from a broad range of interdisciplinary fields to present their work in the science, technology, and applications of non-holographic 3D image collection and display technologies. This meeting will cover research areas related to the acquisition, display, and applications of (non-holographic) 3D information as well as the perception, human factors, and visual comfort of 3D information displays. Research related to scientific understanding of 3D information display and perception, technological innovation on 3D image acquisition or display methods, and task-specific design and applications of 3D acquisition or display technology is of particular interest. Application areas of interest include but not limited to virtual reality, augmented reality, biomedicine, microscopy, endoscopy, healthcare, autonomous vehicle, wearable displays, and entertainment.
