Color appearance models and tone reproduction algorithms are currently solving different problems. These classes of algorithms are also developed and used in different communities. However, they show remarkable functional similarities. Perhaps there is reason to think that they could in fact be one and the same thing. The advantages would be that we could achieve dynamic range reduction while taking human color vision into account. Vice-versa, we could predict the appearance of color over a large range of intensities. But how to overcome the differences, and how to construct an algorithm that could be both a tone reproduction model as well as a color appearance model?

  • CIC is the premier annual technical gathering for scientists, technologists, and engineers working in the areas of color science and systems, and their application to color imaging. Participants represent disciplines ranging from psychophysics, optical physics, image processing, color science to graphic arts, systems engineering, and hardware and software development. While a broad mix of professional interests is the hallmark of these conferences, the focus is color. CICs traditionally offer two days of short courses followed by three days of technical sessions that include three keynotes, an evening lecture, and a vibrant interactive papers session. An endearing symbol of the meeting is the Cactus Award, given each year to the author(s) of the best interactive paper presentation.
