We present a novel approach to adaptively selecting a color workflow solution per document. The success of a color management solution is often dependent on the document's content. In most workflows, either a compromise between options is chosen for all documents or each document is manually processed. Increased interest in color management has led to more options that a user may choose between, with a variety of choices that impact the perceived quality of the reproductions.

Our proposed method automatically selects a color workflow (output profile and rendering intent) for each input document, dictated by the document's characteristics and a set of color workflow performance tests. The choice of performance tests is specific to each of the predefined quality attributes. A selection engine uses these results, weighs them and makes a recommendation on which workflow to apply. The experimental results indicate that the selection engine can determine which rendering intent to apply, but more work is needed in selecting the exact color workflow when the profiles are of similar quality.

  • 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.
