VisionScienceList: ISCC Call for Papers
Mon, 15 Nov 1999 13:43:09 -0500

The Inter-Society Color Council (ISCC) will hold its 69th Annual Meeting at
the newly renovated Hilton Hotel at University Place, Charlotte, North
Carolina on Sunday, April 16, 2000 through Monday, April 17, 2000.
Immediately following the ISCC Annual Meeting will be the First Color
Pigments Conference of the New Millennium, which will be jointly sponsored
with the Color Pigments Manufacturers Association (CPMA). Other events will
include a wine and cheese reception, a "Pig Picking", and a business and
awards luncheon featuring the presentation of the ISCC Macbeth Award to Dr.
Brian Wandell of Stanford University.

Papers will be presented in each of the ISCC's three Interest Groups, it's
Education Committee and a general poster session. There will also be
meetings of two project committees, Project 51 Guide to Material Standards
and Project 52 Definitions of Color Terms II.

Interest Group I, Fundamental and Applied Color Research, invites one-page
abstracts on basic or applied research on the chemistry, physics, or
psychophysics of colors, colorants, and coloring. Abstracts may also be
submitted on the related issues of color durability, measurement, and safety
associated with new ways of coloring things. You may submit abstracts to
either Helen Epps (Chair) or Frank O'Donnell (Vice-Chair) until February 1,
2000. Authors of abstracts accepted for presentation will be notified by
February 15, 2000.

Interest Group II, Industrial Application of Color, serves to present the
technical challenges and solutions that industry encounters in commercial
color applications. In keeping with the theme of the Color Pigments
Conference, Interest Group II is seeking papers that bridge between the
science of color and the pigmentation of various materials. The range of
issues can include, but are not limited to, quality control techniques and
color tolerancing, color measurement techniques, color matching, the
relationship between color and other physical characteristics, as well as
other color-related industrial applications. You may submit abstracts of no
more than 200 words to either Michael Stokes (Chair) or Britt Nordby
(Vice-Chair) until January 15, 2000. Authors of abstracts accepted for
presentation will be notified by February 15, 2000.

Interest Group III, Art Design and Psychology, and the Education Committee
are planning linked sessions on "Color in the Curriculum: The Need to
Integrate Color and Technology in Education." The sessions will address the
needs of industry - image production, marketing and advertising,
manufacturing - for individuals trained in color, and how this need is being
met by schools, colleges, and in-house training courses.

The Education Committee will focus on Color Education in the Digital Era.
Color image production is changing significantly with the introduction of
digital technologies, both for the creator of color images - the artist and
designer, and the producer of color images - the color technician.
Traditionally, many artists have worked with color from an intuitive sense -
their knowledge and use of color being based on experience. Today, more and
more art and design is being produced digitally. In order for the artist or
the color technician to control his palette, he must understand how the
computer, the display, and the hard copy output and inputs produce colors,
and how color is transformed between the different devices.

Both the artist and the color technician require an understanding of the
principles of applied color science - the psychophysics of color perception,
color mixing, the measurement of color, and the use of various color spaces.
There is a widespread need for a basic curriculum of applied color science.
This session on Color Education is intended to address this issue from the
perspective of the teacher and developer of curriculum as well as from the
industrial producer of color images and color image technology.

People interested in participating in the Interest Group III / Education
Committee sessions should contact either Dr. Geof Rogers (Chair - Education
Committee) or Ms. Margaret Miele (Vice-Chair - Interest Group III).

The intent of the general poster session is to provide a vehicle that could
be used by all ISCC members to share state-of-the-art color information.
Whether you are an artist, scientist, industrialist, educator, student, or
researcher, we are interested in hearing what is new in your area of color.
The topics for this session are completely open. Each poster contribution
should represent original work of a non-commercial nature, which is suitable
for presentation even if the author is not present. This poster session
will provide you with an excellent opportunity to present your innovative
color work to interested colleagues attending the ISCC Annual Meeting. You
may submit abstracts until March 1, 2000 to Yan Liu (Chair - Contributed
