Imaging and Astronomy

At the 2018 IS&T International Symposium on Electronic Imaging (EI 2018), taking place 28 January – 1 February 2018 at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport, Burlingame, California, Prof. Daniele Marini is organizing a joint session on imaging and astronomy.

This new session brings together amateur and professional astronomers, vision scientists, color scientists, astrophysicists, data visualization specialists and all others with interest in astronomy and photography. Astronomers and others interested are invited to submit papers considering different aspects of digital imaging that are relevant for astronomical imaging, image processing, and data visualization, e.g., including color reproduction, display, quality, and noise.

We anticipate that the astronomical imaging community will have an exceptional opportunity to connect with digital imaging professionals and exchange experiences. If your work in the field of photography of astronomic subjects, We would be delighted to have you as a speaker discussing your work. Please use this link for your submission.
