10th Euroamerican Workshop on Information Optics (WIO·2011)



10th Euro-American Workshop
on Information Optics
Benicàssim (Spain), 19-24 June, 2011

The 10th Euro-American Workshop on Information Optics will be held during 19-24 June, 2011 at Hotel El Palasiet (Benicàssim, Spain). 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 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 manuscript that will be published online.

Scientific topics

• Fundamental advances in information optics and photonics, including algorithms, devices, and systems
• 3D image sensing, processing, and display: digital holography, integral imaging
• Biophotonics and biomedical imaging
• Inverse problems in optics
• Image-based security and optical security systems
• Polarimetric and multi spectral imaging
• Materials and devices for information optics
• Nano-technologies for imaging systems
• Quantum optics for imaging
• Integrated sensing and imaging, compressive sensing
• Diffractive optics
• Spatial light modulators and applications in information optics
• New radiation sources for information optics
• Temporal optics

About the workshop series

The workshop has been running for 16 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), with invited participants broadly from the area of information optics and photonics. Always there has been 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 optical information processing and advanced imaging techniques regularly attend the conference from Europe, USA, Japan, and Korea, and find it a refreshing, relaxed, and very profitable meeting. Previous workshop locations include Barcelona (1997), Colmar (1999), Valencia (2001), Toledo (2006), Reykjavik (2007), Annecy (2008), Paris (2009), and Helsinki (2010).

Conference Venue

The spa hotel “El Palasiet” is an attractive 4-star hotel in Benicassim. The spa hotel is located among the gardens of an antique classical villa from the 19th century. El Palasiet was totally reformed in 2002 and extended in 2005. It is situated in a privileged place just 50 meters away from the Mediterranean Sea with a mild warm climate. It is characterized to be one of the most suggestive hotels on the Spanish eastern coast with a very particular decoration and friendly atmosphere.
Benicassim is a traditional tourist resort of the eastern coast of Spain, with renowned, fine, long, and sandy beaches along a coastline protected by mountain ranges. A row of modernist villas looking over the beachfront promenade is the perfect backdrop to go for a stroll at sunset. It is located 80 Km from Valencia and 270 Km from Barcelona, both with international airport.

The social events will include a visit to Peníscola, a village with fortified old quarters rising out of the sea to form almost an island of incredible beauty. We will also visit the City of Arts and Sciences in Valencia, a unique complex devoted to scientific and cultural dissemination that, among other elements, includes the Príncipe Felipe Science Museum and the Oceanogràfic (the largest aquarium in Europe with over 500 marine species).
