About Us

The first place technical professionals and users go for knowledge on techniques, processes, and systems for imaging.

Founded in 1947, the Society for Imaging Science and Technology ( is a professional international organization dedicated to keeping members and others apprised of the latest scientific and technological developments in the field of imaging through conferences, educational programs, publications, and its website.

IS&T encompasses all aspects of imaging science, with particular emphasis on digital printing, electronic imaging, color science, image preservation, photofinishing, pre-press technologies, hybrid imaging systems, and silver halide research.


In 1947 a group of 81 researchers from the National Archives, US Navy, National Bureau of Standards, Signal Corp Engineering Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Georgetown University, Bell & Howell Co., and Eastman Kodak Co.—to name a few—worked together to form the Society of Photographic Engineers. The goal was to establish a society to concentrate on publishing scientific papers in the area of photographic engineering. Before this, papers where published in a multitude of publications mixed with other papers of various non-related material. The membership more then doubled before 1950. The first issue of "Photographic Engineering" was published in January 1950.

As a result of "Photographic Engineering", the newly formed Society was able to bring in 18 corporate members, including Bell & Howell Co., Eastman Kodak Co., Bausch & Lomb Optical, Graflex Inc., and Kollmorgan Optical. By the end of 1950 the Society had 33 corporate and more than 270 individual members.

The Society of Photographic Engineers changed it's name in April 1957 to the Society of Photographic Scientists and Engineers (SPSE). Shortly thereafter the first issue of the "Journal of Photographic Scientists and Engineers" was published. On Jan. 29, 1992, the name of the Society was changed to the Society for Imaging Science and Technology (IS&T).

Board of Directors

The Board of Directors is comprised of 12 elected members, the Immediate Past President, chapter directors, and the executive director (non-voting member). Elections take place each spring. Terms of service—offset by two years depending on the position—is for two years and commence on July 1.

The Publications Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, and three additional Vice-Presidents are elected in even numbered years. Any officer other than the President shall be eligible to serve two consecutive terms. Election of all officers shall require a plurality of the votes cast by the voting membership.

Each chapter in good standing may appoint a director to the Board to represent the interests of the Chapter.

The Board of Directors sets the policies and strategic directions for the Society. It meets three times per year, holding one-day meetings in the fall and winter, and a two-day retreat in late spring. Details on who is eligible for nomination to the Board, the responsibilities of each position, and elections guidelines can be found in the IS&T bylaws.
