CIC Short Courses and Workshops


Wednesday, October 23, 2019

9:00 - 10:00
Welcome and Opening Keynote
Perception-Centered Development of Near-Eye Displays, Marina Zannoli, Facebook Reality Labs (US)
To create compelling mixed reality experiences, we need to better understand what it means to be an active observer in a complex environment. In this talk, I make the case that building mixed reality technology that seamlessly interfaces with our sensorimotor system allows for immersive and comfortable experiences. First, I present a theoretical framework that describes how mixed-reality technologies interface with our sensorimotor system. Then, I show how we can use knowledge about the human visual system to develop novel image quality metrics for near-eye displays. Finally, I describe how the Display Systems Research group at Facebook Reality Labs develops image quality metrics, testbeds, and prototypes to define requirements for future AR/VR displays. More specifically, I present a series of head-mounted prototypes, rendering techniques, and benchtop testbeds that explore various paths to support focus cues in near-eye displays.

Thursday Keynote
The Chromatic Pyramid of Visibility, Andrew B. Watson, Apple Inc. (US)
The Pyramid of Visibility is a simplified model of the spatio-temporal luminance contrast sensitivity function (Watson and Ahumada 2016). It posits that log sensitivity is a linear function of spatial frequency, temporal frequency, and log luminance. It is valid only away from the spatiotemporal frequency origin. Though very useful in a range of applications, the pyramid would benefit from an extension to the chromatic domain. In this talk I describe our efforts to develop this extension. Among the issues we address are the choice of color space, the definition of color contrast, and how to combine sensitivities among multiple pyramids.

Thursday Invited Talk
Scientific Imaging for Cultural Heritage (Invited), Clotilde Boust, Centre de recherche et de restauration des musées de France (France)
Scientific imaging is an important part of conservation sciences developed in museum laboratories. This is mainly because it is noninvasive, a decisive advantage to studying unique artworks. Various 2D and 3D optical techniques using several radiations (visible, UV, IR, X-rays) lead to a precise state report of the artwork, for color, shape, and surface on first intention. Depending on the object's conservation question, more investigation can be done to detect original or restauration materials or fabrication techniques. Several examples of imaging for art conservation will be presented, with a focus on color collections and multimodal images.

Friday Keynote and IS&T and CIC Awards

Let There Be Light: “An AR Immersive Experience”, Panagiotis-Alexandros Bokaris, L'Oréal (France)
Video-projected augmented reality offers unique immersive experiences while it changes the way we perceive and interact with the world. By projecting on real-world objects we can change their appearance and create numerous effects. Due to physical limitations and the complexity of such AR systems, color calibration, and processing for desired appearance changes require to be specifically addressed.

This talk focuses on the challenging aspects of video-projected AR systems composed of video projectors and cameras: geometric calibration, latency, color calibration, and characterization of desired effects. Such an AR solution developed at L’Oréal is presented to demonstrate applications in beauty industry.
