About the Workshop on Information Optics
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.
The workshop has been running for 20 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,
single session), with invited participants broadly from the area of information optics and photonics.
There is 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 fields of information optics and advanced imaging techniques regularly
attend the conference from Europe, USA, and Asia, and find it a refreshing, relaxed, and very beneficial
meeting. Previous workshop locations include Sitges (1997), Colmar (1999), València (2001), Toledo (2006),
Reykjavik (2007), Annecy (2008), Paris (2009), Helsinki (2010), Benicàssim (2011), Quebec (2012),
Tenerife (2013), Neuchâtel (2014) and Kyoto (2015).
The workshop will consist of keynotes and invited talks (oral presentations are by invitation only).
Regular submissions will be accepted as poster presentations on topics that include, but are not strictly
limited to, those listed below. The program will include a "poster pop" session during which each poster presenter will have the
opportunity to introduce his/her poster for 5 minutes to the conference attendees. Each presenter
(keynote, invited, poster) is invited to submit a short 2-3 pages manuscript that will be published online.
The workshop has been sponsored regularly by premiere optics and photonics societies,
including IEEE, OSA, SPIE and EOS.
