• About WIO

    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 Barcelona (1997), Colmar (1999), Valencia (2001), Toledo (2006), Reykjavik (2007), Annecy (2008), Paris (2009), Helsinki (2010), Benicasim (2011), Quebec (2012), Teneriffa (2013), and Neuch√Ętel (2014).

    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, EOS, etc.

    WIO2015 tentative program is available. Last update is May 30, 2015.

  • Location

    The 14th Workshop on Information Optics (WIO2015) will be held at Kyoto Garden Palace during 1st-5th June, 2015 in kyoto, Japan. Kyoto is the former capital of Japan from end of 8 century to middle of 19 century. There are many historical places and temples. Kyoto is the best city to know Japanese culture and was registered as UNESCO world heritage in 1994.
