2017 IISW Call for Papers

The 2017 International Image Sensor Workshop (IISW) to be held in Hiroshima, Japan, on May 30 - June 2, 2017, calls for papers presenting innovative work in the area of solid-state image sensors and share new results with the imaging community. The workshop is intended for image sensor technologists and has limited attendance. As in the previous years, the workshop will emphasize active interaction and encourage exchange of information among the workshop participants in an informal and open atmosphere at a great venue.

The scope of the workshop includes all aspects of electronic image sensor design and development. In addition to regular oral and poster papers, the workshop will include invited talks and announcement of International Image Sensors Society (IISS) Award winners.

Papers on the following topics are solicited:
