About Hyperspectral Imaging & Applications
The HSI Conference is now in its fifth edition, having previously been held at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, in Rome and in Coventry in 2014. There has been considerable growth in applications for hyperspectral imaging in industry and research in recent years and this event, following on from the success of previous meetings, will therefore draw significant numbers of attendees from all fields of hyperspectral imaging.
The conference is run under the umbrella of the Enlighten Conference, alongside other meetings at the Ricoh Arena, and in parallel with the established photonics exhibition ‘PHOTONEX’ with co-located ‘VISION UK’. Visitors will enjoy the added benefit and appeal of visiting the UK’s premier photonics event at the same time as attending HSI 2016.
This central England location is very convenient for attendees and in early 2016 ‘Coventry Arena’ rail station will open with direct connection to Coventry Mainline Station.
About Hyperspectral Imaging
Unlike conventional colour cameras, which capture light in just three spectral windows, hyperspectral cameras have the ability to capture an entire section of the electromagnetic spectrum at every pixel. Hyperspectral imaging is now being used in research and industry to determine viewed objects’ temperatures, chemical compositions, moisture, fat and sugar content in the food industry as well for a range of applications in art, biology, defence, forensics and anticounterfeiting, medicine, museums, pharmaceuticals, surveillance, remote sensing and industrial inspection.
Important issues for spectral imaging are associated with the development of instrumentation that can demonstrate the required performance criteria, the development of algorithms for calibration and exploitation of spectral data, the miniaturisation of instruments and improving spectral range and sensor technology.
HSI 2016 will bring together academic and industrial users to share their knowledge of innovations in hyperspectral imaging cameras, technology and applications.
The HSI series is the IP of The Hyperspectral Imaging Centre at the University of Strathclyde.
