There are not many international courses that teach color science applied to non-technical fields. Here, we want to present the experience from a master course organized by Gruppo del Colore – Associazione Italiana Colore and Politecnico of Milano: the Master in Color Design & Technology. It has the aim of training students in the use of color mainly for design purposes, and color science and colorimetry have a big role in the program. The Master is organized in three main phases: Fundamentals, Project Works and Internship. The first part is a series of lectures and frontal lessons that gives to the students the theorical and technical bases to be used in project works practical applications of and internship. In fact, in the second and third parts students are asked to design and develop different applicative design projects. After the first part of Fundamentals training, students will be able to manage disciplines such as colorimetry, visual perception, physics, chemistry, optics and psychology, to build up their future professional career in different fields.

  • For more than 30 years, the Electronic Imaging Symposium has been serving those in the broad community - from academia and industry - who work on imaging science and digital technologies. The breadth of the Symposium covers the entire imaging science ecosystem, from capture (sensors, camera) through image processing (image quality, color and appearance) to how we and our surrogate machines see and interpret images. Applications covered include augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, machine vision, data analysis, digital and mobile photography, security, virtual reality, and human vision. IS&T began sole sponsorship of the meeting in 2016. All papers presented at EIs 20+ conferences are open access.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
