CGIV, the European Conference on Colour in Graphics, Imaging and Vision was held in alternate years from 2002 - 2012.  It has been folded into the Color and Imaging Conference.

CGIV, the European Conference in Colour in Graphics, Imaging, and Vision


The first IS&T CGIV Conference was held in 2002 in Poitiers, France. The single-track meeting takes place in even years, in locations throughout Europe. The International Symposium on Multispectral Colour Science (MCS) has been collocated with CGIV each year CGIV has been held.


CGIV covers a wide range of topics related to colour and visual information, including color science, computational color, color in computer graphics, color reproduction, color vision/psychophysics, color image quality, color image processing, and multispectral color science.

Drawing papers from researchers, scientists, and engineers world wide, CGIV offers attendees a unique experience to share with colleagues who work in industry and academia, and on national and international standards committees. Held every other year, CGIV tends to be more academic in its focus and encourages participation from students.

      IS&T Code of Conduct/Anti-Harassment Policy— The Society for Imaging Science and Technology (IS&T; is dedicated to ensuring a harassment-free environment for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity/expression, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, age, language spoken, national origin, and/or religion. As an international, professional organization with community members from across the globe, IS&T is committed to providing a respectful environment where discussions take place and ideas are shared without threat of belittlement, condescension, or harassment in any form. This applies to all interactions with the Society and its programs/events, whether in a formal conference session, in a social setting, or on-­‐line.

      Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, sexual orientation, etc., as well as deliberate intimidation; stalking; harassing photography, recording, or postings; sustained disruption of talks or other events; inappropriate physical contact; and unwelcome sexual attention. Please note that the use of sexual language and/or imagery is never appropriate, including within conference talks, online exchanges, or the awarding of prizes. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

      Those participating in IS&T activities who violate these or IS&T’s Publications Policy may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference and/or membership without a refund at the discretion of IS&T. If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact the IS&T Executive Director or e-mail immediately. Please note that all reports are kept confidential and only shared with those who “need to know”; retaliation in any form against anyone reporting an incident of harassment, independent of the outcome, will not be tolerated.
