Computational Optical Sensing and Imaging (COSI)

Computational Optical Sensing and Imaging (COSI)

25 - 28 7月 2016
Kongresshaus Stadthalle Heidelberg, Heidelberg, Germany

Theoretical to experimental demonstration and applications of the latest advances in computational imaging research.

Computational sensing and imaging applications span from fundamental science to medical, security, and defense industry applications. COSI encompasses the latest advances in computational imaging research, emphasizing integration of opto-electric measurement and computational processing.   Representative topics include compressive sensing, tomographic imaging, light-field sensing, digital holography, SAR, phase retrieval, computational spectroscopy, blind deconvolution and phase diversity, point spread function engineering, and digital/optical super resolution.

Special Events

Welcome Reception Cruise
Date: Monday, 25th July, 2016
Boarding Time: 18:30


Join your colleagues on a cruise along the Neckar River and enjoy a very special view of Heidelberg and its sights, including the Old Bridge and Heidelberg Castle as the cruise makes it’s way up and down the River.  The main cruise is Heidelberg to Neckarsteinach and back. The influence of the locks can clearly be seen in these traveling times – the full length cruise is only 10 minutes faster downstream than upstream.  Capacity of the boat: 500 people

Fees: Full Technical - $20.00, Student Technical- $10.00 and Guest -$85.00
RSVP at time of registration is required for a ticket.

OSA 100th Celebration: Light the Future
Date: 26 July 2016
18:30 - 20:00

Light the future speakers  
You're invited to celebrate OSA’S 100th Anniversary! OSA will be 100 years old in 2016 and we are planning a big celebration to commemorate this historic event. Our focus is on the extraordinary people who have advanced the field. OSA’s Imaging and Applied Optics Light The Future speaker series will feature Joseph Izatt, professor of Biophotonics, Duke University, and OSA Fellow Bernard Kress, Microsoft, USA.
