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

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

26 - 29 June 2017
Hyatt Regency San Francisco, San Francisco, California United States

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.

Keynote (AIO/IS)
Tuesday, 27 June, 10:45-12:15

Speaker: Tish Shute, Futurewei (Huawei), USA, XR and The Future of Communications: From Silicon to Human Photonics
AR/AR will evolve into XR to become the future interface for Cloud Computing, IoT, Big Data, Prediction, Self-driving Cars, Personalized Medicine, Robots, Drones, Cryptocurrency, Smart Cities, and AI. XR is intelligent and interactive connecting us in new ways to each other and uniting human and machine intelligence in a space shared and understood by both. The convergence of CV and AI is powering this paradigm shift in computing but display technologies still lag behind. New display technologies that operate at the intersection of engineering and perception are essential for the realization of XR. This talk will look at the promise of XR, and the challenge of fitting the puzzle pieces together.

Student & Early Career Professional Development & Networking Lunch and Learn
Tuesday, 27 June, 12:15 – 14:00

Join us for an interactive lunch and learn program focused on professional development within the Imaging and Applied Optics field. This program will engage students and early career professionals with the key leaders in the field who will share their professional development journey and provide useful tips to those who attend. Lunch will be provided. Programs are open to OSA Members. There is limited space and we ask that you RSVP to attend.

AIO Panel : The View from the Ladder:  Perceptions on the Future of Photonics
Tuesday, 27 June, 16:45 – 17:45 
Perceptions are often governed by the experience of the individual. Here panelists at various stages in their career and seniority will discuss the current and future outlook of the photonics industry as well as the role of collaboration and consolidation in the market.  From fresh perspectives to seasoned analyses, this session will also explore what the optics community can do to shape the future of photonics technology.

Joint Poster Session
Tuesday, 27 June, 17:45-19:15

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 board on which to display the summary and results of his or her paper. 

AIO Panel: Start-ups, Incubators, Accelerators, Oh My!
Wednesday, 28 June, 16:45 – 17:45
What if an entrepreneur could put themselves in the shoes of the investors they pitch to? Would the ideas be pitched differently? Would the ask be different? What are the specific challenges of a photonics entrepreneur, and what are ways to address those challenges?

IS Panel: When Two Cameras Are Better Than One
Thursday, 29 June, 11:15- 12:15

Using multiple cameras to form a single image is going mainstream this year, with many new smartphones including this feature. The claims include continuous zoom, improved dynamic range and resolution, and depth sensing, all in a smaller and lighter system than an equivalent single lens camera. In this session a panel of academic and industry experts will discuss the multi-camera trend in the consumer imaging industry. Now that the approach has become practical, it is a good time to explore the key technologies, design trade-offs and performance limits.
