Conference History

The seeds for HVEI were sewn in 1988, when Bernice Rogowitz organized a day of papers by luminaries at the intersection of human vision and electronic imaging, as part of Pat Mantey's conference on Image Processing.  The next year, she organized a full conference on the same theme, and in 1990 was joined by Jan Allebach, who complemented her background in visual psychophysics and perception with his in image processing.

The Conference on Human Vision and Electronic Imaging has evolved as imaging technology, itself, has evolved. The early days were focused on display technology and image compression, and many of the foundational studies on perceptual modeling for image quality and JPEG compression were presented at HVEI.  As new technologies emerged, HVEI focused on visual and cognitive aspects of digital image libraries, visualization, high-dynamic range displays, and virtual reality.  There has always been a strong focus on color perception and spatial-color interactions, visual attention and memory, and in more recent years, higher-level human judgments, involving emotion and aesthetics.  The most interesting aspect is how every year, the diversity of the multi-disciplinary community grows, and how rich the web of interactions between people from vastly differing backgrounds.

In appreciation, HVEI recognizes the Conference Chairs who have served over the years:

  • Bernice Rogowitz – 1988 - present, 30 years
  • Jan Allebach – 1990 - 1996, 8 years

  • Michael Brill – 1989
  • Thrasos Pappas – 1997 - present, 21 years
  • Huib de Ridder – 2012 - present, 6 years
