Non-iterative Comprehensive Normalisation
In this paper we develop a non iterative log comprehensive normalisation procedure. We begin by reviewing the idea that lighting effects due to geometry and light colour can, under certain reasonable simplifying assumptions, both be modelled using simple scalar multipliers. We nowtake logarithms and turn geometry and light colour dependency into additive processes. We show how in this log color space two simple projection operators lead to invariance to geometry and light colour. Moreover, because projection operators are idempotent, illuminant invariance is achieved in a single step. Experiments demonstrated that log comprehensive normalisation used as a preprocessing step supports accurate colour based object recognition independent of lighting conditions.

Started in 2002 and merged with the Color and Imaging Conference (CIC) in 2014, CGIV covered a wide range of topics related to colour and visual information, including color science, computational color, color in computer graphics, color reproduction, volor vision/psychophysics, color image quality, color image processing, and multispectral color science. Drawing papers from researchers, scientists, and engineers worldwide, DGIV offered attendees a unique experience to share with colleagues in industry and academic, and on national and international standards committees. Held every year in Europe, DGIV papers were more academic in their focus and had high student participation rates.
