First Announcement for the 2011 International Image Sensor Workshop

The following email was sent to an Image Sensor Workshop distribution list:

TO: All Image Sensor Engineers

FROM: Nobukazu Teranishi
Junichi Nakamura

Dear Imaging Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the 2011 International Image Sensor Workshop (IISW 2011) to be technically co-sponsored by IEEE Electron Devices Society and Institute of Image Information and Television Engineers (ITE) in Japan.

When: Wednesday, June 8 through Saturday, June 11, 2011

Where: Hakodate-Onuma Prince Hotel in Hokkaido, Japan


(please check for latest information and hotel link)

As you find in the description on the web, the hotel is located in Onuma Quasi-National Park, considered one of the three best scenic views of modern Japan and one of the most spectacular areas of Hokkaido. The hotel is surrounded by white birch and oak and is built to harmonize with the natural environment. As a resort hotel, there is a wide range of activities available along with a hot spring and fine dining made with local Hokkaido ingredients.

Nobukazu Teranishi (Panasonic) and Junichi Nakamura (Aptina) will serve as General Co-Chairs, and Shoji Kawahito (Shizuoka Univ.) will serve as Technical Program Chair.

The deadline of the abstract submission will be January 17, 2011 (Japan time). The First Call for Papers will be sent in a month or so.

Also, for your information, the 2011 IEEE Symposia on VLSI Technology and on VLSI Circuits will be held in Kyoto, Japan, following this Workshop, from June 12 through June 17, 2011.

Please forward this email note to any and all your colleagues who you think might be interested in this workshop.

We will try to make the coming Workshop informative and beneficial for your research and development work. Thank you for your cooperation in advance.

  1. Are chip measurements mandatory for this workshop or good simulations can also be accepted?

  2. Modeling papers would be considered, although typically best when supported with measured data for model verification.
