Keynote: Imaging and Astronomy, Prof. Joel Primack

This session is jointly sponsored by: Color Imaging XXIII: Displaying, Processing, Hardcopy, and Applications, and Image Quality and System Performance XV.

The keynote speaker is Dr. Joel R. Primack, Distinguished Professor of Physics Emeritus, University of California, Santa Cruz. Dr. Primack specializes in the formation and evolution of galaxies and the nature of the dark matter that makes up most of the matter in the universe. After helping to create what is now called the "Standard Model" of particle physics, Primack began working in cosmology in the late 1970s, and he became a leader in the new field of particle astrophysics. His 1982 paper proposed that a natural candidate for the dark matter is the lightest supersymmetric particle, still perhaps the leading candidate. He is one of the principal originators and developers of the theory of Cold Dark Matter, which has become the basis for the standard modern picture of structure formation in the universe. With support from NASA, NSF, and DOE, he has been using supercomputers to simulate and visualize the evolution of the universe and the formation of galaxies under various assumptions, and comparing the predictions of these theories to the latest observational data. He organized and led the University of California systemwide Center for High-Performance AstroComputing, 2010-2015. Primack was one of the main advisors for the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum's 1996 IMAX film Cosmic Voyage, and he has worked with leading planetariums to help make the invisible universe visible.
