Explore the Future in Electronic Imaging
Please join us for the 2016 IS&T International Symposium on Electronic Imaging (EI 2016) at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square in San Francisco, California, 14-18 February 2016.
Imaging is integral to the human experience—from the personal photographs that we take every day to the professional ones used in science, communication, security, transportation, education, space exploration, medical imaging, artistic expression, and entertainment. Come to EI 2016, where we discuss, learn about, and share the latest developments from across industry and academia. Meet up with your colleagues, leading researchers, and entrepreneurs from around the world.
On behalf of the Society for Imaging Science and Technology (IS&T), we invite you and your colleagues to join us at the 28th annual EI Symposium. The 2016 event will feature 20 technical conferences covering all aspects of electronic imaging—from image sensing to display and hardcopy to machine vision in use in transportation systems. Topics include augmented and virtual reality displays and processing; computational and digital photography; human vision, color, perception, and cognition; image and video processing; image and video communication via the web; mobile imaging; imaging sensors; image quality; media security and forensics; and machine vision and machine learning.
Technical courses taught by experts from academia and industry are offered to augment the main technical program of symposium plenary, conference keynote, and oral and interactive (poster) presentations.
Technology demonstrations by industry and academia participants and a focused exhibition showcase the latest developments driving next generation electronic imaging products.
