In just a few weeks, leading experts in color science, imaging, and engineering systems, technologies, and applications will gather in Lillehammer for the 25th Color and Imaging Conference (CIC25).
Inaugurated in 1993 and sponsored by the Society for Imaging Science and Technology (IS&T), CIC is the premier annual technical gathering for scientists, technologists, and engineers working in the areas of color science and systems, and their application to color imaging. The CIC program covers a large variety of imaging applications such as mobile imaging, virtual reality, endoscopy, material representation in manga comics, biomedical imaging of skin, face detection, color blindness, color preferences in fat spreads (like margarine), color harmony, and underwater color correction. The science of color is vital to many fields of imaging, especially as advances in today’s technologies move at a rapid pace.
Keynote speakers at CIC25 will touch upon how color has shaped some of those technological developments:
- Paul Hubel, Chief Scientist, Camera Technology at Apple, discusses how extreme increases in mobile processing power and innovative algorithms have allowed computational photography to push the image quality of small cameras well beyond much larger systems. Hubel also considers the future of mobile imaging.
- Anya Hurlbert, Newcastle University, reviews parallel developments in the computational and psychophysical approaches to color constancy, and relates these to new developments in lighting technology, which present new challenges for color stability.
- Malcolm Innes, Edinburgh Napier University, uses examples of projects in light art, architectural lighting design, and…
