Just a quick reminder that the deadline for submitting abstracts for the CIE/ISCC  Expert Symposium to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the 1931 Standard Colorimetric Observer is the 15th of January 2006. 

The symposium will be held , held in Ottawa, Canada, May 16th and 17th in conjunction with the meeting of Division 1, May 18th and 19th, 2006 and  the 75th Anniversary Meeting of the Inter Society Colour Council , May 14th and 15th, 2006. All meetings will be held at the National Research Council in Ottawa, Canada.

The goals of the Symposium are to recall the many advances that have been made since the introduction of the Standard Colorimetric Observer, to understand the current state of colorimetry and colour appearance, and to provide guidance on directions for future work. Several prominent speakers have already committed to speak. These include Robert Hunt on the past and future of CIE colour appearance models, Michael Brill on the validity of Grassmann's Laws, Jay Enoch on studies on colorimetry in Stiles' laboratory at NPL, Mark Fairchild on colour appearance in image displays, Ronnier Luo on colour difference formulae: past, present and future, Todd Newman on color management, János Schanda on possible future CIE recommendations on colorimetry, and Andrew Stockman on physiologically-based colour matching functions. It promises to be an interesting and informative session. I hope many of you are already planning to attend and are considering presenting a paper. Come and help to formulate the work of Division 1 in colour for the next 75 years.

Authors are invited to submit two-page extended abstracts of their proposed contributions in English according to the Extended abstracts should be sent by e-mail or post to the Chair of the Technical Program of the Symposium no later than 15 January 2006.
