Latest news: the proceedings for the workshop are now available online in the IEEE digital library IEEEXplore under ISBN 978-1-4244-8227-6 (IEEE subscription required).
The 9th Euro-American Workshop on Information Optics will be held during 12-16 July 2010 (preceded by a welcome reception) at Hotel Linna, Helsinki, Finland. The workshop will address the latest advances in information optics, information photonics, imaging sciences and engineering, display technologies and 3D displays, 3D image sensing, image-based information security, image recognition, biophotonics, and novel image sensors. It will be a forum for scientific interaction and collaboration between well-known scientists in the field and educational outreach to students.
One emphasis of the workshop will be on building consortia for the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme FP7/2007-2013 funding applications, and informing participants about FP7 opportunities for European and non-European researchers.
The workshop will consist of keynote and invited talks (by invitation only). Regular submissions will be accepted as poster presentations on topics that include, but are not limited to those listed below. The programme will include a "poster pop" session during which each poster presenter will have the opportunity to introduce their poster for 5 minutes to the conference attendees. Each presenter (keynote, invited, poster) is invited to submit a short manuscript that will be published online in the IEEE digital library.
- Fundamental advances in information optics and photonics, including algorithms, devices, and systems
- 3D image sensing, processing, and display: digital holography, integral imaging
- Biophotonics and biomedical imaging
- Inverse problems in optics
- Image-based security and optical security systems
- Polarimetric and multi spectral imaging
- Materials and devices for information optics
- Nano-technologies for imaging systems
- Quantum optics for imaging
- Integrated sensing and imaging, compressive sensing
About the workshop series:
The workshop has been running for 16 years, starting with the Euro-American Workshop on Optical Pattern Recognition in La Rochelle, 1994. It is a small workshop (typically limited to 30-35 talks), with invited participants broadly from the area of optical information processing. There has always been an emphasis on allowing time for interaction, collaboration, and networking in a friendly atmosphere. Participants stay together for lunch and social outings. Well-known researchers in the field of optical information processing regularly attend the conference from Europe, USA, Japan, and Korea, and find it a refreshing, relaxed, and very profitable meeting. Previous workshops include Barcelona (1997), Colmar (1999), Valencia (2001), Toledo (2006), Reykjavik (2007), Annecy (2008), and Paris (2009).
Hotel Linna (which means "Hotel Castle" in Finnish) is an attractive 4-star hotel in Helsinki city centre. Helsinki, the capital of Finland, is a modern city with half a million residents and is situated on the Baltic Sea. The lifestyle in the second-most northern capital city in the world is moulded by the uniqueness of the city, its many contrasts, activities in the form of hundreds of city events, and friendly people. Helsinki's identity has been formed by cultural influences from both the east and west... (Read more)
