"Stress for dehazing" awarded best student paper at CVCS

"Stress for dehazing" awarded best student paper at CVCS

"Stress for dehazing" by Vincent Whannou de Dravo and Jon Yngve Hardeberg was awarded the best student paper at the 2015 Colour and Visual Computing Symposium. The paper is based on Vincent's master thesis in the 3D multimedia technology master program, which carried out at Gjøvik University College in the spring of 2015. The thesis was supervised by Prof. Jon Yngve Hardeberg. We congratulate Vincent and Jon Yngve with the award.

Colourlab Workshop #3/2015: Fluorescence

Colourlab Workshop #3/2015: Fluorescence

The third Colourlab workshop of the year will be held on the 1st of September at Gjøvik University College. Almost all commercial paper substrates make use of fluorescent whitening agents to increase the perceived whiteness. When fluorescence is present, the reflectance factor is no longer independent of the light source and this can lead to significant colour mismatch. In this workshop, we will discuss recent advances in the modelling and the characterisation of fluorescence and how this can be implemented in current colour reproduction workflows.

Call for Papers for a Special issue in JIST

Call for Papers for a Special issue in JIST

A significant volume of research has been carried out in the field of spectral imaging in the past decades. However many challenges still remain unsolved, and thus spectral imaging is a very active research field. In order to further stimulate excellent fundamental and applied research in this field, Guest Editors Prof. Jon Yngve Hardeberg, from the Norwegian Colour and Visual Computing Laboratory at Gjøvik University College (Norway), and Dr. Shoji Tominaga, from the Graduate School of Advanced Integration Science at Chiba University (Japan), hereby invite full paper submissions to a special issue on spectral imaging in the Journal of Imaging Science and Technology (JIST).
