The organisers of Image Sensors 2013 (IS2013), to be held in London, 19-21 March, have released the conference’s full agenda. In addition to two workshops and the two-day conference, IS2013 will feature a new Innovation Platform, where both academics and SME’s will present their innovations on the opening evening of the event.
IS2012 was attended by 185 delegates from varying companies and markets including end users in camera phones, digital stills cameras, broadcasting, military, space, security and automotive. Jim DeFilippis, consultant to the media and broadcast industry, is one of the keynote speakers for IS2013 and will discuss the duality of image sensor and display technology development in 3D broadcast technology. His presentation is set to include his experiences from the London 2012 Olympics 3D broadcast.
The other keynote speakers include: Dr Howard Rhodes, chief technical officer at Omnivision, USA; Dr Junichi Nakamura, director of Japan Design Centre at Aptina Japan; Alan Roberts, colour science consultant (former BBC R&D), UK; and Prof Franco Zappa of Polimi, Italy.
The pre-conference workshops will be led by Prof Edoardo Charbon, TU Delft, The Netherlands and Nicolas Touchard, DxO Labs, France. They will focus on single-photon imaging with an overview of the technology and a focus on medical applications, and testing and optimisation of image sensor performance.
