programme for 2014, consisting of a two day conference and an
additional day of two pre-conference workshops.
Over 18 speakers
have been confirmed to present over the two days, including Adobe,
Nokia, Samsung (News - Alert), Jaguar Land Rover and BMW. The 2014 programme will
feature end user insights and technical innovation from global image
sensor experts. The peer-researched agenda will address current issues
and opportunities facing the image sensor market, and will include five
key sessions: Image Capture and Processing, Gesture Recognition, Global
Shutter Sensors, Automotive Imaging and The Future of Digital Imaging.
Given extended coverage on the Image Sensors programme for 2014 is automotive
imaging, bringing vision to vehicles of today and tomorrow.
Attendees will hear exclusive papers from three OEMs - VW, BMW and
Jaguar Land Rver as well as leading Tier 1 supplier Valeo, to give a
detailed analysis of imaging in the automotive sector, and image sensor
developer Melexis will present on the challenges facing sensor producers.
Speaking at Image Sensors is Dr JungChak Ahn from Samsung, Juha Alakarhu
from Nokia (News - Alert), Prof Sylvain Paris of Abobe, and Lindsay Grant of ST
Microelectronics, all with expert knowledge to share in the opening
session on consumer
imaging, focussed on the latest sensor innovations and image
recognition will be presented by pmdtechnologies and Texas
Instruments who both have made significant steps in evolving this
technology to the next level of user interface. Day 1's closing session
shutters, with an evaluation of the different technology
pathways led by Guy Meynants of CMOSIS, Dr Shoji Kawahito of Brookman
Technology and Dr Manuel Innocent of ON (News - Alert) Semiconductor.
The closing session on day two delves into tomorrow's technology, with a
session on 'The Future of Image Sensors'. High-speed imaging, artificial
retina, next generation broadcast imaging, plastic electronics, and
hyperspectral imagers will all be expertly covered by speakers from
Ritsumeikan University, Nara Institute, BBC R&D, ISORG, and IMEC
respectively. The session culminates with a closing Keynote from Prof
Peter Seitz, sharing his experiences and vision for the future of
A workshop on, 'A Million Images per Second and Beyond' led by Dr Renato
Turchetta, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory and Dr Albert Theuwissen of
Harvest Imaging poses the question, 'What on earth shall I do with all
these pixels?'. Both sessions incorporate three hour interactive
workshops with discussion time alongside presentation slides. The
workshops have proven a popular addition to the Image Sensors conference
in recent years.
