PRESS RELEASE

Hyperspectral imaging conference to run again at Photonex

Xmark Media, organisers of Photonex - the UK’s premier showcase dedicated to photonics and light technologies, are delighted to announce the return of HSI 2018: Hyperspectral Imaging & Applications Conference on 10-11 October 2018 at Ricoh Arena, Coventry.

Held biennially in collaboration with the Hyperspectral Imaging Centre at Strathclyde, this meeting will bring together participants from all fields of hyperspectral imaging including application engineers, manufacturers, researchers and users in industry for a very special two days of learning, networking and investigating the latest developments in this exciting technology.

Hyperspectral imaging is one of the fastest growing techniques in the world today. It is used in surgery, remote sensing, in the food industry for the detection of contamination… what is next?

This conference will discuss current hyperspectral challenges and solutions. Are the latest cameras becoming snap-shot rather than push-broom? How is hyperspectral imaging being used for real-time quantification of substances? How have developments in Deep Learning transformed the landscape since the last conference?

Speaking ahead of the event, Professor Stephen Marshall, Chair of the Hyperspectral Imaging Centre, University of Strathclyde, commented: “We are very excited for the Coventry event and looking forward to building on the success of our past HSI meetings. Running this conference alongside a significant exhibition of latest photonics technologies provides an additional benefit for delegates and a great opportunity to collaborate with fellow colleagues and suppliers on an unprecedented scale.”

The call for abstracts is now open. Anyone wishing to present in the programme should submit their entry via the website by Friday 29th June. All submissions will undergo peer review overseen by the technical programme committee.
