Color naming: color scientists do it between Munsell Sheets of Color

Last year at the IS&T/SPIE Electronic Imaging symposium in San Jose the conference Color Imaging: Displaying, Hardcopy, Processing, and Applications started a session on controversial topics called "The Dark Side of Color." These are papers that transcend the incremental research methodology of solving a problem, proving the solution's contribution in an experiment, and reporting the result in a conference. This session consists of papers were authors go out on a limb, not afraid of intuition and speculation, and propose new paradigms.

A preprint of our contribution is now available at this link:


  1. An awesome review of previous research and applications on colour naming. It Worths Printing a hard copy. Well Done.

  2. Dimitris - thanks for the kind words. We look forward to being able to feature some of your interesting results at some point soon. n8
