The scope of the workshop includes all aspects of electronic image sensor design and
development. In addition to regular papers, the workshop will include invited talks, poster presentations, discussion sessions, and Walter Kosonocky Award. Extra time has been added to permit longer discussion and more informal meeting time.
Papers on the following topics are solicited:
Image Sensor Design and Performance
- CMOS Image sensors, CCD and CID image sensors. New architectures.
- Image sensors with rolling shutter and global shutter.
- Image sensors architecture, Low noise readout circuitry, ADC designs
- High frame rate Image sensors, High dynamic range sensors, Low voltage and low power
- High image quality. Low noise. High sensitivity. High color reproduction.
- Non-standard color patterns with special digital processing
- System-on-a-chip, Image sensors with digital preprocessing
Pixels and Image Sensor Device Physics
- New devices and structures. Advanced materials.
- Small pixels development, testing, and characterization
- New device physics and phenomena
- Techniques for increasing QE, well capacity, reducing crosstalk, and improving angular performance
- Front side illuminated and back side illuminated pixels and pixel arrays
- Nanotechnologies for Imaging
