Computational Photography and the Rise of Mobile Imaging, Paul Hubel, Apple Inc. (USA)

The past decade has seen a steep rise in the popularity of mobile imaging driven by convenience, connectivity, and ever increasing image quality. The extreme increases in mobile processing power and innovative algorithms have allowed computational photography to push the image quality of small cameras well beyond much larger systems. Some of the successful methods are discussed as well as a look into the future of mobile imaging.

nmmm = Colour and Appearance—A Multi-scale Approach: Nano-Micro-Meso-Macro (Focal), Patrick Callet, Centre Français de la Couleur (France)
Among optical properties required for characterizing visual appearance in any lighting and viewing conditions, the most fundamental ones play an important role in predictive rendering. Spectroscopic ellipsometry is useful to acquire the complex indices of refraction of any homogeneous material. A multiscale approach using fundamental optical properties that are the components of the complex di-electric tensor of the material compounds acquired separately is illustrated using automotive paints as an example.

Thursday Keynote and IS&T Awards

Session Chair: Nicolas Bonnier, Apple Inc. (USA) with support from The Colour Group Great Britain

Twenty-five Years of Colour Constancy, Anya Hurlbert, Newcastle University (UK)

Twenty-five years ago, colour constancy was treated as a well-understood perceptual phenomenon that could be framed as the straightforward computational problem of reflectance recovery. Empirical studies have since shown that colour constancy is neither straightforward nor simple, and varies with the object, illumination, and task at hand. This talk reviews parallel developments in the computational and psychophysical approaches to colour constancy, and relates these to new developments in lighting technology, which present new challenges for colour stability.

True Colours: Exploration in Art, Design, and Research, 
Malcolm Innes, Edinburgh Napier University (UK)
It is always an interesting question: do you see colour the same way that I see colour? As my initial training was as an artist, it is possible that I approach colour very differently from someone with a scientific background. But do all artists or all scientists see the same, how do specialists in each discipline see colour? Does a chemist see colour differently from a physicist and do they see colour differently from a neurologist? Does a painter see colour differently from a graphic designer or an advertising art director? How much does our training contribute to our view of colour and do our professional silos prevent us from seeing the world as others do? As someone whose practice crosses art, design and strays into science, I am always intrigued to know how other people’s training and professions shape the way they see the world.
