We presented three papers at the 23rd IS&T/SPIE Electronic Imaging Symposium in San Francisco, CA (Jan 2011):

Sabine Süsstrunk was the General Chair of the symposium.


Radhakrishna Achanta successfully defended his thesis Finding Objects of Interest in Images using Saliency and Superpixels. Congratulations, Dr. RK! (Jan 2011)


Sabine Süsstrunk gave an invited talk about the future of photography at the 10th anniversary of Image Engineering Gmbh in Cologne, Germany. (Jan 2011)


Albrecht Lindner presented a poster on Automatic grouping of semantic keywords to improve image rendering and Neda Salamati on Material-based object segmentation using near-infrared information at the IS&T/SID 18th Color and Imaging Conference in San Antonio, TX, US. The latter won the Cactus Award for Best Interactive Paper. Congratulations, Neda! (Nov. 2010)


The demo of our skin smoothing application using visible and near-infrared image fusion won the ACM MULTIMEDIA 2010 Best Demo Award (Florence, Italy). For more information about the demo and to download the papers, click here. (Oct 2010)

Note that the skin smoothing demo is also present in the Digital Revolution exhibit at the Swiss Camera Museum in Vevey, Switzerland, until December 2011. Visitors can take their own pictures and get them displayed before and after smoothing, and e-mail themselves the results. Read more about the exhibit (in French) in Le Temps, and in this clipping from 24 heures.


Sabine Süsstrunk gave a talk about Computational Photography at the Doctoral School Seminar S2I, La Rochelle, France. (Oct. 2010)


Radhakrishna Achanta gave a talk on Saliency Detection using Maximum Symmetric Surround at the IEEE International Conference on Image Processing (ICIP 2010) in Hong Kong, China. (Sept 2010)


After the success of the exhibition at the Musée de l'Elysée 'We are all Photographers Now!' in Lausanne in 2007 and the installation of the FLOW module at the New York Photo Festival in 2009, we continued the adventure around a specific theme: the public space. Both amateur and professional photographers, anywhere in the world, were invited to participate in the project by uploading their images. The photographs were projected on screens at the Rolex Learning Center during the La Nuit des Musées on September 25th from 2pm to midnight.

We received over 4'000 uploads and were able to display about 95% of the photos. A time-lapse video of the installation is available here.

Sabine Süsstrunk gave a talk about Computational Photography at the Know Thy Neighbor seminar series of IC at EPFL. (May 2010)


Zahra Sadeghipoor Kermani joined IVRG as a PhD student. (May 2010)


The Swiss Camera Museum in Vevey opened the exhibit Digital Revolution. IVRG helped collect items to exhibit and is present with a demo of our skin smoothing application using visible and near-infrared image fusion. Visitors can take their own pictures and get them displayed before and after smoothing, and e-mail themselves the results. The demo was built by Daniel Tamburrino and Simon Hiscox. Read more (in French) in Le Temps, and in this clipping from 24 heures. (April 2010)
