  1. University of Calgary, Canada published MSc thesis "High-Performance CMOS Image Sensor and System for Imaging Tissue Hemodynamics" by Xiao Zhang.
  2. Universite Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, France publishes PhD thesis "Asynchronous Event Based Vision: Algorithms and Applications to Microrobotics" by Zhenjiang Ni
  3. Linkoping University, Sweden publishes dissertation "Geometric Models for Rolling-shutter and Push-broom Sensors" by Erik Ringaby.
  4. University of Trento, Italy publishes PhD thesis "Design and characterization of SPAD based CMOS analog pixels for photon-counting applications" by Ekaterina Panina.
  5. University of Waterloo, Canada published MSc thesis "Phosphor Coated UV Responsive CCD Image Sensors" by Stefan Alexander
  6. University of Texas at Austin published PhD thesis "Video Stabilization and Rectification for Handheld Cameras" by Chao Jia.
  7. Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada published MSc thesis "Low Power Parallel Rolling Shutter Artifact Removal" by Nick Stupich.
  8. Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, Brazil, published PhD thesis "Simplified Wide Dynamic Range CMOS Image Sensor with 3T APS Reset-Drain Actuation" by Carlos Augusto de Moraes Cruz.
