Why Attend?

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

2020 marks the 32nd year of IS&T's International Symposium on Electronic Imaging. Over the course of these more than 30 years, many thousands of electronic imaging professionals, representing the myriad facets of imaging science and engineering, have enhanced their skills and advanced their careers through the connections made here. EI has showcased the leading research of each era, from the early days of digital cameras, to the imaging science driving autonomous vehicles, to the 3D imaging essential to bioinformatics, to the virtual realities presented via stereoscopic imaging.

In recent years, EI has evolved to encompass exciting new growth areas in electronic imaging. Check out the Autonomous Vehicles and Machines conference, for example.

EI 2020 promises to continue bringing together the world of imaging, with vital new topics that put electronic imaging at the forefront of 21st century technology development. You will learn about these 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.

What You Can Expect at EI 2020

We listened to all the great feedback we received from previous year’s attendees and have incorporated the best suggestions into this year’s event.

  • Attend three symposium plenaries, presenting breakthrough technologies that are reshaping, not just the fields of imaging science, but the world around us.
  • Choose among more than 150 highly-relevant technical conference sessions, led by some of the industry’s top experts. Look for joint sessions on topics that span multiple conferences, creating synergies among technology topics. 
  • 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.
  • Take short courses directly from the innovators.
  • Meet colleagues and innovators at the EI 2020 social events. 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 2020 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.
