Conference Highlights

EI 2018 was the twenty-third year of the Color Imaging: Displaying, Processing, Hardcopy, and Applications Conference. Each year the COLOR conference brings a special interest to the fore. At EI 2018, this special interest topic was Imaging and Astronomy. 

Imaging and Astronomy at EI 2018

The Color Imaging XXIII: Displaying, Processing, Hardcopy, and Applications and Image Quality and System Performance XV conferences included, for the first time, a joint topic on "Imaging and Astronomy," bringing together amateur and professional astronomers, vision scientists, color scientists, astrophysicists, data visualization specialists and all others with an interest in astronomy and photography. 

Innovations in digital imaging allow anyone to cultivate the art and science of astro photography and the Electronic Imaging community provides the context to share knowledge and approaches to improve imaging quality in this field. Amateur and professional astronomers are invited to participate and to submit papers on any aspect of digital imaging applied to astro photography. Among other specialists, Robert J. Nemiroff PhD, the soul of the APOD NASA initiative, will be present. Dr. Neminoff is also co-creator of the Astrophysics Source Code Library (ASCL) open repository.

In conjunction with this joint session, an introductory short course on Astro Photography will be organized by Daniele L.R. Marini, professor (Università degli Studi di Milano) and IS&T Fellow. This short course will address the process of astro photography using DSLR and CCD cameras, low light and long exposure digital capture, and rendering contrast and color in astronomical images.

The joint session will be introduced by Joel R. Primack, presenting a keynote on deep learning and computer vision applied to simulations and imaging of the developing universe and galaxies. Professor Primack is Distinguished Professor of Physics Emeritus at U.C. Santa Cruz and served as Director, University of California system wide High-Performance Astro-Computing Center, 2010-2015. Professor Primack is currently President-Elect, Sigma Xi, The Scientific Research Honor Society, 2017 and Chair-Elect, Forum on Physics and Society of the American Physical Society, 2017. We are pleased to share his presentation, "Computer vision and deep learning applied to simulations and imaging of galaxies and the evolving universe ."
