7 Submission Options Defined The three submission options are 1. Journal paper: due 30 June Proceedings draft: due 15 July 2015 a. 4-6 page, two-column draft paper or b. 1,000 word structured abstract or c. other, noted by conference (i.e., see Document Retrieval and Recognition; Stereoscopic Displays and Applications; and Visualization and Data Analysis) 3. Presentation-only submission: due 11 September 2015 The three options are defined as follows: 1. Journal paper submission option submit via jist.msubmit.com Those authors who wish to have their EI paper appear in and therefore be cited via a journal may submit a complete, final, manuscript of original work to the Journal of Imaging Science and Technology (JIST) for peer-review. Papers submitted using this option progress through the normal JIST review process, with the additional requirement that, as the time to publication is shortened to accommodate the EI conference dates, submissions must be publication-ready. Papers that require more than minor revisions will not be accepted for publication in time for EI For more details, see Author Guidelines for Conference Focused Sections (http://imaging.org/ist/pdfs/jist_conference_focused_section_guidlines.pdf). NOTE: All papers submitted and accepted via the journal option are automatically forwarded to the conference program committee for scheduling in the appropriate conference program. Papers accepted via this option are guaranteed an oral presentation at EI. Papers accepted for JIST will be included in the EI proceedings as reprints and bear a JIST citation. Papers requiring major modification for JIST are still eligible for presentation at EI and inclusion in the proceedings; these papers will be directed to conferences for scheduling and possible further review. Authors selecting this option must register for the conference and pay the JIST page charges at 50% their current rate. Note that these JIST papers will be free for download both as journal papers and under the conference proceedings via the IS&T Digital Library. To submit, visit jist.msubmit.com; under manuscript type, select: Focused Section EI2016. Authors will be notified by the end of August Proceedings draft submission option Each conference has selected one of three formats for those wishing to submit a proceedings draft for review. Refer to the individual conferences for details. Please note that final manuscripts are required for accepted proceedings papers. It is expected that authors will sign IS&T s standard copyright agreement. Consideration is also given to those who need to sign a CC BY or other copyright form due to funding or governmental guidelines. All EI papers are peer-reviewed using the following criteria: 1. Relevance to the audience of the conference 2. Well-written, organized, clear, and with none or few grammatical errors 3. Thorough in their summary of prior art 4. Original and novel 5. Technically sound and correct 6. Well-tested; results should be analyzed and compared to those in the literature (Authors should have completed a thorough review of prior literature and note or cite as appropriate.) 7. Conclusions should be supported by the results of the paper 8. Papers should provide and include current, thorough, and proper referencing IS&T maintains its Digital Library on the Publishing Technology IngentaConnect platform: Photo: Stephen Keith. Photo: Francisco Imai. All submissions must include a word abstract (short summary) that will appear on the conference website as part of the Advanced Technical Program. Submissions must make clear the novel contribution that your paper makes to the field. Submissions 7

8 should be technically interesting and fit within the scope of the Symposium. For review consideration, authors must provide details sufficient to allow conference committees to make a fair judgment about the relevance and novelty of the submission. All submissions should include the following: Abstract: A short summary of the problem to solve, the methodology for doing so, and the results/conclusions. Context: In one or two sentences summarize the background context to your work; clearly state why it is an important question to study. In this area, as well as other areas of the paper, be sure to include reference to prior relevant work. A common criticism of papers is that not enough time is spent looking at what other researchers have done and documented. Authors should know the prior research and cite it as appropriate relative to their work. Novelty: It is important to clearly state the novel contribution of your work in comparison to previous publications in the field. If you have previously published in this area, please explain how this work differs from your previous papers. Objective: Describe the purpose of your project, clearly state the problem you set out to investigate. Method: Summarize the technical approach, apparatus, calculations, etc., you have used or developed as part of the project. Review papers should identify the methods used to find primary and secondary sources and how you chose to include or exclude sources from the review. Results: Describe the results that you have obtained (preliminary results are fine; these can be update in the final manuscript). Be as specific as possible and if appropriate quantify the results. You may attach diagrams, graphs, images, and other information to support results or any other section of your submission. References: Include specific references using generally accepted citation standards. You may include a link to the reference online, if one exists. 2a: 4-6 page, two-column draft paper format Use the 4-6 page template and accompanying directions found at www. for your submission. Convert your source file to PDF for upload to the submission system. 2b: 1,000-word structured abstract Use the 1,000-word structured template and accompanying directions found at www. for your submission. Be sure to address all the areas noted. Convert your source file to PDF for upload to the submission system. 2c: Other The Document Retrieval and Recognition, Stereoscopic Displays and Applications, and Visualization and Data Analysis Conferences use conference-specific proceedings submissions formats. See specific conference Call for details. Convert your source file to PDF for upload to the submission system. Oral and Interactive Paper Presentation Formats Accepted proceedings drafts will be assigned one of two presentation formats: oral or interactive. Please note that oral and interactive papers carry the same level of value at EI 2016 conferences. The format selected for the presentation of each paper is based on whether the contents are better suited to a talk or exchange of ideas, while considering also the author s request. Note that highly-respected authors often choose to give their papers via an interactive paper because they prefer a venue in which to discuss and exchange ideas related to the work contained therein. An oral paper is usually allotted a 20-minute time frame in which to present the contents of the final proceedings paper and answer questions from the audience. It is expected that presenters be well-rehearsed in both presenting the content of their paper and in preparation for answering questions. Slides should be legible from the back of the room, adhere to standard guidelines for visibility and clarity, and of a high quality. Authors submitting to EI agree to the following conditions: To submit the structured abstract or draft paper using the required format by the scheduled due date; submission equals authorization for IS&T to circulate the submission to conference committee members for peer-review and/or selection purposes. Obtain funding for their registration fees, travel, and accommodations, independent of IS&T, through their sponsoring organizations. Please note that request for visa application support should be made as soon as you receive acceptance of your paper. Register at the required registration rate by the early registration deadline. Ensure that all clearances, including government and company clearance, have been obtained to present and publish the work. If you are a DoD contractor in the USA, allow at least 60 days for clearance. Sign the IS&T copyright form. Please note that accommodations are made for authors who need to sign creative commons copyright forms such as CC BY. To submit a full-length manuscript (6 12 pages) for publication in the IS&T Digital Library by the onsite or post-symposium deadline (conference dependent; see conference for details). To attend the meeting and give a highquality presentation as scheduled in the technical program. Commercial papers, papers with no new research/development content, and papers where supporting data or a technical description cannot be given for proprietary reasons will not be accepted for presentation in this conference. An interactive paper consists of a 90-minute time frame in which a poster version of the proceedings paper is presented on 4-foot x 4-foot board to attendees from across the Symposium. Some conferences also allow interactive presenters the opportunity to preview their paper during a conference session. Conferences that have this policy are noted in the Call. Authors will be notified which presentation format they have been given at the time of acceptance. 8

9 Final proceedings papers Each conference has the option to choose to release papers from their conference to the IS&T Digital Library prior to or after EI. Deadlines for final papers are based on this choice and are noted within the details of each conference. Authors are expected to upload final files to the submission site as per instructions contained in the acceptance letter. 3. Presentation-only submission option We recognize that the ability to present late-breaking news or industry talks that don t require full peer review or the submission of a full paper to the conference proceedings is what allows EI to provide cutting-edge information and technological breakthroughs to attendees. To that end, authors have the option to submit ideas for talks that will not be included in the proceedings. A 500- to 1,000-word draft presentation, paper, or abstract is expected for Presentation-only submissions. All submissions must include a word abstract (short summary) that will appear on the conference website as part of the Advanced Technical Program. Papers submitted this way will not be included in the Symposium Proceedings, but may be available on the Symposium website. Submission System/Process Photo: Stephen Keith.

The number of cell phones produced each year exceeds one billion and the quality of images produced by them is so high that many people are happy with a cell phone as their only camera. At the same time, other types of cameras also keep improving. Advances in hardware and processing of captured images help to push boundaries of what was previously possible in consumer and fine art photography and in the huge range of applications of digital imaging in industry, science, health care, defense, and other areas. Despite the tremendous progress that have been already made, the future promises even more. This conference serves to bring together researchers, scientists, and engineers working in the fields of traditional, mobile, and computational camera imaging to discuss recent progress in the development of digital cameras and camera modules, with all related areas like optics, sensors, in-camera still image and video processing (including traditional pipeline steps like demosaicing, color correction, and image compression, as well as high dynamic range processing, blur removal, and various other computational imaging techniques), applications of image and video processing, still image and video management and sharing applications, and methods and standards for evaluating the quality of produced images and video and of cameras used for their capture. The conference includes panel discussions and joint sessions with other Electronic Imaging conferences with overlapping interests.

17 committee list updated June 2, 2015 Color Imaging XXI: Displaying, Processing, Hardcopy, and Applications Joint Sessions: Planned on Retinex at 50 with the Human Vision and Electronic Imaging Conference and Image Quality for the Visually Impaired with the Image Quality and System Performance Conference. 1,000-word structured abstract*: 15 July to 1,000-word abstract for presentation-only*: 11 September 2015 Final proceedings manuscript: 01 December 2015 The proceedings will be available onsite. Color imaging has historically been treated as a constant phenomenon well described by three independent parameters. Recent advances in computational resources and in the understanding of the human aspects are leading to new approaches that extend the purely metrological view towards a perceptual view of color in documents and displays. Part of this perceptual view is the incorporation of spatial aspects, adaptive color processing based on image content, and the automation of color tasks, to name a few. This dynamic nature applies to hardcopy devices, but to an even larger extent to soft-copy displays. Adaptive gamut and tone mapping, dynamic contrast, adaptive power usage, and color management continue to support the unprecedented development of the display hardware spreading from mobile displays to large size screens. This conference provides an opportunity for presenting, as well as getting acquainted, with the most recent developments in color imaging technologies and applications. Focus of the conference is on color image input, dynamic color image output and rendering, color image automation, emphasizing color in context and color in images, and reproduction of images across local and remote devices. The conference covers software, media, and systems. Special attention is given to applications and requirements created by new disciplines. The Special Session entitled The Dark Side of Color will group challenging questions, open issues, alternative views, paradigm shifts, bottom up experimentation, re-addressing the current state of the color science, technology, and applications. For this session, we are looking for well-asked questions rather than tangible results. Conference Chairs: Reiner Eschbach, Monroe Community College (USA); Gabriel G. Marcu, Apple Inc.

18 Measuring, Modeling, and Reproducing Material Appearance 2016 Awards: Best Student Paper Award Joint Session: Planned on Perceptual Aspects of Materials with the Human Vision and Electronic Imaging (HVEI) Conference. 4-6 page draft proceedings paper*: 15 July to 1,000-word abstract for presentation-only*: 11 September 2015 Final proceedings manuscript: 01 December 2015 The proceedings will be available onsite. The rapid and continuous development of rendering devices such as displays and printers offers interesting challenges related to how materials are understood. Over the years, researchers from different disciplines have studied the interaction of incident light with the texture and surface geometry of a given object, as well as the optical properties of distinct materials. Thanks to those efforts, we have been able to render with high accuracy 2.5D and 3D objects and scenes. Given the day-to-day technological improvements of materials and devices along with the advances in the areas of visual and tactile perception, modeling how light interacts with materials and techniques for measuring material properties, the field of material appearance is in constant evolution. This conference offers the possibility to share research results and establish new collaborations among academic and industrial researchers from these related fields. Conference Chairs: Francisco H.
