2015 AIC Midterm Meeting in TOKYO

MCS 2015

MCS 2015

The 16th International Symposium on Multispectral Color Science (MCS 2015) will be organized as part of AIC 2015. Submissions will be handled through AIC 2015 electronic submission system and the conference proceedings with final versions of the accepted papers will be published in Proceeding of AIC 2015.


Many aspects of multi- and hyper- spectral image acquisition, analysis, and rendering have been extensively researched recently due to the technological advances in hardware devices, software systems, and signal processing algorithms. Moreover, there are numerous applications, such as quality control, agriculture, medicine, cosmetics, fine art and craft, printing, display, robotics, and remote sensing, in which spectral imaging technology is more and more exploited. As a consequence, a variety of problems encountered in our everyday lives have been reformulated, successfully solved, and sometimes cast into their new contexts rising new scientific challenges.

This symposium is intended to review the current state of the art, and address major challenges and future directions in spectral color science and imaging. Scientists and engineers from all over the world are invited to exchange their knowledge, technologies, and ideas on various hot and new topics. In MCS 2015 topics of interest in the field of spectral color, imaging, and light include as follows:

  • Color Science
  • Image Capture, Processing, and Analysis
  • Image Quality
  • Image Visualization, Display, and Rendering
  • Imaging Devices
  • Video Technology
  • Color and Human Vision
  • Color Analysis
  • Lighting Science
  • Optimization of Light Sources and Displays
  • Image Applications (Art, Skin, Medicine, etc.)

History of MCS

The 16th International Symposium on Multispectral Color Science (MCS 2015) builds on the tradition since 1999 to bring together researchers in the field of spectral color science and imaging. The first MCS symposium was launched at Chiba University, Japan in 1999 as The International Symposium on Multispectral Imaging and Color Reproduction for Digital Archives by the initiative of Professor Yoichi Miyake. Since 2001 the multispectral symposium has been organized by an informal consortium of researchers, mostly incorporated into larger international conferences as follows:

1st MCS, Chiba, Japan, 1999
2nd MCS, Chiba, Japan, 2000
3rd MCS, Joensuu, Finland, 2001
4th MCS with ICIS, Tokyo, Japan, 2002
5th MCS with PICS, Rochester, US, 2003
6th MCS with CGIV, Aachen, Gernmany, 2004
7th MCS with AIC, Granada, Spain, 2005
8th MCS with Electronic Imaging, San Jose, US, 2006
9th MCS, Taipei, Taiwan, 2007
10th MCS with CGIV, Terrassa, Spain, 2008
11th MCS with SCIA, Oslo, Norway, 2009
12th MCS with CGIV, Joensuu, Finland, 2010
13th MCS with CIC, San Jose, US, 2011
14th MCS with AIC, Newcastle, UK, 2013
15th MCS with ICISP, Cherbourg Normandy, France, 2014

This year’s collaboration with 2015 AIC Midterm Meeting should prove beneficial by bringing together the color and multispectral communities.
