SPIE DCS 2018: CCSI – Computational Imaging

This year I’m chairing the Computational Imaging session at the SPIE Defense + Commercial Sensing, in Orlando, Fla., April 16-19, 2018, together with Aamod Shanker. We have invited a lot of amazing speakers and we are organizing a panel discussion on the trends in computational imaging.

The panel discussion will be on the topic of “Computational Imaging: Present and Future”, with speakers:

Goutam Chattopadhyay is a Senior Research Scientist at the NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, and a Visiting Associate at the Division of Physics, Mathematics, and Astronomy at the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, USA. He is also a BEL Visiting Distinguished Chair Professor at the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India. He received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), Pasadena, in 1999. He is a Fellow of IEEE (USA) and IETE (India) and an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer. His research interests include microwave, millimeter-wave, and terahertz receiver systems and radars, and applications of nanotechnology at terahertz frequencies.

Roarke Horstmeyer is a new assistant professor within the Biomedical Engineering Department at Duke University. He develops microscopes, cameras and computer algorithms for a wide range of applications, from forming 3D reconstructions of organisms to detecting neurons deep within tissue. Having first started working in the field of computational imaging nearly 10 years ago, his work currently lies at the intersection of optics, signal processing, optimization and biology. Most recently, Dr. Horstmeyer was a guest professor at the University of Erlangen in Germany and an Einstein International Postdoctoral Fellow at Charité Medical School in Berlin. Prior to his time in Germany, Dr. Horstmeyer earned a PhD from Caltech’s electrical engineering department in 2016, a master of science degree from the MIT Media Lab in 2011, and bachelor’s degrees in physics and Japanese from Duke University in 2006.

David G. Stork is Rambus Fellow at Rambus Labs, where he leads research in the Computational Sensing and Imaging Group.  A graduate in Physics of MIT and the University of Maryland, he’s held faculty positions in Physics, Mathematics, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Statistics, Psychology, Neuroscience and Art and Art History variously at Wellesley and Swarthmore Colleges and Clark, Boston and Stanford Universities.  He is a Fellow of OSA, SPIE, IAPR and IARIA, has published over 200 technical articles and eight books/proceedings volumes, and holds 51 patents.  In addition to his work in computational imaging, machine learning, pattern recognition and computer vision, he is a pioneer in the application of rigorous computer image analysis to problems in the history and interpretation of fine art paintings and has lectured on the subject at leading museums in 20 countries.


Later this year, I will present my work on ALS-U at the International Workshop on X-ray Optics and Metrology (IWXM, June 6-9, 2018, Taiwan), at the International Conference on Synchrotron Radiation Instrumentation (SRI, June 10-15, 2018 Taiwan) and at  SPIE Optics+Photonics (June 19-23, 2018 San Diego, USA)
