Registration is now open for the IS&T International Symposium on Electronic Imaging (EI 2019), held this coming January in California (US). EI 2019 is a leading global electronic imaging industry and academia symposium.
The annual Symposium, organized by the Society for Imaging Science and Technology (IS&T), features cutting-edge research and innovation from leaders driving electronic imaging such as Mobileye, Google, Oculus VR, and more.
EI 2019 runs January 13–17, 2019, at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport in Burlingame, California.
The Symposium features theme days, plenary speakers, 16 individual conferences, and 25 technical courses, and includes cross-topic joint sessions, keynote speakers, and peer-reviewed research presentations.
Symposium organizers created theme days to allow attendees to dig deeper into the topics of Autonomous Vehicle Imaging, 3D Imaging, Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, andLight Field Imaging. Dive deep into the topics through featured plenary talks, symposium sessions, and short courses.
Leading researchers from Intel, University of Arizona, and Google present the latest advancements in autonomous driving technology and virtual and augmented reality.
- Amnon Shashua, CEO and CTO, Mobileye, and Senior Vice President of Intel Corporation, will discuss the use of computer vision and artificial intelligence in the design of autonomous vehicles. Inspired by human vision, the Jerusalem based Mobileye mono-camera enables Advanced Driver Assist Systems (ADAS) in automobiles to support sensing, mapping, and driving policy.
- Hong Hua, Professor of Optical Sciences, University of Arizona, will discuss the high promises and the tremendous progress made recently toward the development of head-mounted displays (HMD) for both virtual and augmented reality displays; and
- Paul Debevic, Senior Scientist, Google, highlights the impact of light fields in virtual reality to further enhance the user experience.

Technical Short Courses
The Short Course Program at EI 2019 is a valuable, affordable resource—geared toward anyone who wants to acquire knowledge, explore new areas, or gain a deeper understanding of imaging topics.
The Short Course Program delves into topics ranging from computer vision for autonomous driving to deep learning for image and video processing to building your own VR headset– and everything in between. The courses range from introductory to advanced and are all taught by industry innovators and experts from around the world.
Highlights of this year’s Short Course Program include:
- (NEW!) Developing Enabling Technologies for Automated Driving
- Fundamentals of Deep Learning
- Build Your Own VR Display: An Introduction to VR Display Systems for Hobbyists & Educators
- (NEW!) An Introduction to Blockchain,
- (NEW!) Digital Image Forensics,
- Using Cognitive & Behavioral Sciences and the Arts in Artificial Intelligence Research & Design
- Introduction to TensorFlow
EI2019 is an entire week of intertwined imaging science events that allow attendees to expand their knowledge and networks. The conference technical programs are enhanced with:
- An industry exhibit showcasing electronic imaging products and services
- A "hands-on" Demonstration Session where authors and others show the hardware and software presented in papers
- The Women in Electronic Imaging breakfast
- Opportunities for students to meet with interested industry representatives
- The SD&A 3D Theater showcasing examples of the best international stereoscopic productions
For 30 years, the Electronic Imaging Symposium has been serving those in the broad community—from academia and industry—who work on imaging science and digital technologies. The scope of the Symposium includes the entire imaging science ecosystem, from capture (sensors, cameras) through image processing (image quality, color, and appearance) to how humans and machines see and interpret traditional and multi-dimensional images and videos.
