Call for papers - Gjøvik Color Imaging Symposium 2007 June 14-15.
I am very happy to announce that Gjøvik Color Imaging Symposium 2007 will take place in Gjøvik , Norway, on June 14 and 15, 2007. It is the fourth time that the Norwegian Color Research Laboratory at Gjøvik University College organizes this event. This time you will experience Norway in summer!

We plan a rich program of tutorials, workshops, invited talks, demonstrations, and research presentations, and hope to bring together researchers, practitioners, and students from all over Europe (and the rest of the world), around a theme of common interest, namely color imaging.

To make this a memorable event, however, we rely on your contributions. Therefore we issue a call for papers in two categories:

  Regular extended abstracts, 1500-2500 words, including figures and references. Original research including results.
   Revised versions of the accepted abstracts will published in the conference proceedings.

Short student abstracts, 300-500 words. Work-in progress accepted, from master and PhD students. Abstracts will only be distributed at the conference,
  not published, so as not to prevent further publication in other conferences or journals. These papers will be presented in a special session, in which the students
  will receive thorough feedback from a panel of experts, on all aspects of their contribution. A limited number of students might be offered a travel grant and inclusion
  in the proceedings.

Contributions are sought in all fields of color imaging, but particularly within the following categories:
Color in the graphic arts
Motion imaging
Display & soft proofing
Color matching and color appearance
Image quality and color image difference
Multispectral color imaging
Spatial color imaging and image processing

Abstracts should be submitted before April 20th, to:, as a PDF file. In the cover letter/email, please indicate clearly which abstract category you aim for. Students should indicate their student status/affiliation, as well as providing reference to their academic supervisor. Include a max 50 word bio.

So far, the following two highly esteemed keynote speakers have agreed to participate:
Dr. Alessandro Rizzi, Università degla Studi di Milano, Crema, Italy.
Dr. Norimichi Tsumura, Chiba University, Japan

The symposium will be organized in conjunction with the yearly Color Management Conference, organized by the Institute of Graphic Media ( This event will take place in Oslo on June 13th, and is aimed particularly at the Norwegian Graphic Arts industry.

Further information will show up in due time on, but you also risk receiving more emails from me.

Anyway, here's what you should do right now: mark your calendars, distribute this circular to your colleagues and students, and give me some feedback on your plans to attend!

Best Regards,
Jon Hardeberg
