Student Focus

Connect with innovation. Connect with peers. Connect with knowledge.

2017 marks the 29th anniversary of IS&T International Symposium on Electronic Imaging. Over the course of these 29 years, many thousands of electronic imaging students, engaged in the myriad facets of imaging science and engineering, have enhanced their skills and launched their careers through the connections that have been made here.

EI 2017 promises to be no different. You will learn about new imaging applications, hear of the next challenges tackled on the frontiers of imaging science, and interact with renowned imaging scientists and pioneers from around the world. Symposium plenaries, short courses taught by the experts, conference keynotes, and informal gatherings allow you to tap into a smart, forward-thinking global community that will inspire and empower you.

For students and prospective employers, EI 2017 will offer Meet the Future: A Showcase of Student and Young Professionals Research. This 1st annual event will bring invited students together with academic and industry representatives who may have opportunities to offer, and will provide each student with an opportunity to present and discuss their academic work via an interactive poster session. Students presenting at an EI 2017 conference or who have presented at another qualifying conference may apply.  Contact ei@imaging.org for information.

What you can expect at this year’s conference

Explore over 150 highly relevant sessions, led by some of the industry’s top experts. This year, we will again offer joint sessions on topics that cross over among the conferences – making the most of the synergies among our conferences.

Attend keynotes in each conference. Be inspired by presentations from thought leaders representing a wide range of emerging applications from across both academia and industry.

Attend three symposium plenaries, presenting breakthrough technologies that are reshaping, not just the fields of imaging science, but the world around us.

Take short courses directly from the innovators. Students receive one short course of their choice - free with their early registration. 

Meet friends and future colleagues at the EI 2017 reception. Engage one-on-one with authors during the interactive poster session. Interact with imaging products hands-on during the demonstration session and see the latest image products at the Industry Exhibition.

EI 2017 is the world’s leading global electronic imaging industry and academia event. Only here can you connect with the brightest, most engaged community in the world that will help you imagine your most creative future.

Submit your work to be a part of EI 2017. Register early to obtain the Early Registration rate and one free short course. Note that this year student authors may apply for limited travel support and a reduced registration.
