The agenda for the fifth annual Image Sensors conference has been announced. Taking place 20-22 March in London, the conference will present more than 20 speakers, with application areas covering healthcare, aerial, broadcast, mobile communications, automotive, security, defence, space, astronomy and industrial sectors.
Dr Eric Fossum will provide the grand keynote on the Quanta Image Sensor (QIS) and a possible paradigm shift for the future. Dr Nobukazu Teranishi of Panasonic will speak on dark current and white blemish, Mats Wernersson of Sony Ericsson will discuss trends and technologies in next generation camera phones, and Dr Samuel Moseley of NASA will present on high-performance imaging detectors for space astrophysics.
Also covered is photogrammetry – Udo Tempelmann, Leica Geosystems will review aerial imaging technologies and markets. In 3D imaging, Softkinetic’s Daniel Van Nieuwenhove will examine trends in gesture recognition technology. Healthcare imaging is featured with comprehensive insight into innovations in medical imaging systems, and Olympus will be presenting on technical aspects of medical endoscopic imaging. Imaging experts Bosch, Sagem and Pelco Schneider will review the security market and its vast potential.
Two directional sectors have been included in this year’s programme, with contributions from the BBC as well as Japanese Broadcasting Corporation NHK.
Lindsay Grant, imaging division process manager, STMicroelectronics, will be co-chairing the conference and commented: ‘To have some of the key inventive pillars behind modern imaging technology presenting will make this conference very special for all those attending. IntertechPira’s Image Sensors conferences have grown strongly in recognition and popularity over the years, and for 2012, I expect a lively, constructive mix of strong technical presentations, Q&A and business.’
