Dr. Andrew Watson is the senior vision scientist at Apple, with expertise in psychophysics, neuropsychology, and applied psychology. Prior to joining Apple, Dr. Watson was the Senior Scientist for Vision Research at NASA Ames Research Center in California. He is the author of more than 100 papers and six patents on topics in vision science and imaging technology. Dr. Watson is Vice Chair for Vision Science and Human Factors of the International Committee on Display Measurement. He is the founder and editor-in-chief of the Journal of Vision. In 2007 he received the Otto Schade Award from the Society for Information Display, and in 2008 the Special Recognition Award from the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology. In 2011, he received the Presidential Rank Award from the President of the United States.

Prof. Karol Myszkowski is a senior researcher at the Max Planck Institut Informatik, Saarbruecken, Germany. In the period from 1986 till 1992 he worked for Integra, Inc. a Japan-based, company specialized in developing rendering and global illumination software. He received his PhD (1991) in computer science from Warsaw University of Technology (Poland). In 2011 he was awarded with a lifetime professor title by the President of Poland. His research interests include global illumination and rendering, perception issues in graphics, high dynamic range imaging, and stereo 3D. He co-authored the book High Dynamic Range Imaging, and participated in various committees and editorial boards. He also co-chaired Rendering Symposium in 2001, ACM Symposium on Applied Perception in Graphics and Visualization in 2008, Spring Conference on Computer Graphics 2008, and Graphicon 2012.

Prof. Sylvia Pont was appointed Antoni van Leeuwenhoek professor in 2016. She has worked at the faculty of Industrial Design Engineering at TU Delft since 2008. In the light and vision labs, within the Perceptual Intelligence Lab, her group works on studies in design, perception, optics and rendering of light and its interactions with material, shape and space. From September 1999 to 2008 she worked in the Physics of Man group of the department of physics and astronomy of Utrecht University. Her postdoctoral research into 'ecological optics' included studies into reflectance, texture, and light fields. January 2004 she got an appointment as an assistant professor and started her project entitled 'Ecological Plenoptics of Natural Scenes', for which she was granted a 'VIDI Vernieuwingsimpuls' by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). This project concerned studies into the description of the appearance of natural materials and natural light fields.

Prof. Victoria Interrante's research focuses on applying insights from visual perception and cognition to the development of more effective virtual reality experiences and the more effective communication of complex information through visual imagery. In this work, she enjoys collaborating with colleagues in a wide variety of fields, from architectural design and neuropsychology to engineering and medicine. Prof. Interrante is a recipient of the 1999 Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, "the highest honor bestowed by the U.S. government on outstanding scientists and engineers beginning their independent careers", and a 2001-2003 McKnight Land-Grant Professorship from the University of Minnesota. At the University of Minnesota, Prof. Interrante is currently serving as the director of the Center for Cognitive Sciences and as a member of the graduate faculty of the Program in Human Factors. In recent years, she has also served as chair of the technical track on Graphics, Animation and Gaming at the 2015 Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing.

Invited: Visual Representation in Art, Imaging and Visualization with Tim Jenison of Tim's Vermeer Fame

Session Chair: Claus-Christian Carbon, University of Bamberg (Germany)
2:00 – 2:40 PM
Grand Peninsula Ballroom A


Tim Jenison founded Texas-based computer software and hardware producer NewTek, specializing in tools for the gathering and editing of desktop video media. Following the formation of the company in Topeka, Kansas, NewTek went on to become renowned for the creation of the Commodore Amiga video tools DigiView and DigiPaint, which were highly popular applications at the time. Jenison later appeared as the subject of the feature documentary "Tim's Vermeer" (2014), about his efforts to digitally recreate the painting technique of the Dutch baroque painter Johannes Vermeer. In his early life, Jenison took inspiration from his electrical engineer father, and a lot of his own early work came as a result of his obsession with music; as a youth he played in rock bands, although his main love was customizing and improving their instruments and studio equipment. Among his successes with NewTek were the Video Toaster for the Amiga and later Windows, a product which won the 1993 Emmy Award for Technical Achievement, and latterly animation system LightWave 3D, live broadcast system TriCaster, and slow motion replay system 3PLAY. A casual art fan himself, Jenison was inspired by the writings of artist David Hockney and art historian Philip Steadman to see whether rumoured primitive photographic techniques in Vermeer's paintings were possible. "Tim's Vermeer," directed by magician Teller and featuring his partner, Jenison's friend Penn Jillette, documented his artistic process. The film made the Oscar “short-list” as well as received a BAFTA (British Oscars) nomination for Best Documentary Feature in 2014.
