Imaging Systems and Applications (IS)

Imaging Systems and Applications (IS)

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

Latest advances in the research, engineering and systems design of imaging devices for applications in military, industrial, medical and consumer imaging.

IS brings together experts from many different scientific and engineering disciplines who contribute to the design and integration of optics, sensors, digital processing and displays in imaging systems. IS captures the state-of-the-art in unique light gathering optics, image sensor architectures and technology, on and off chip digital image processing, and methods for compression and transmission. The meeting highlights the leading-edge use of imaging systems in microscopy, invasive and non-invasive surgery, remote sensing, astronomical observations and imaging from nearby planets to outer space, digital cinematography capture and projection, computational photography and consumer imaging.

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.
