Computational photography is well established as a field of research in
the use of algorithms to exceed the limitations of conventional optics
and sensors. The newer, and in some ways associated, field of
Computational Aesthetics studies the algorithmic basis of aesthetic
sense. It has seen much interest from researchers in such diverse
practices as computer graphics, art history, and cultural studies.

This workshop will provide an opportunity for researchers working in
Computational Photography and Computational Aesthetics to discuss with
leading national and international figures in those fields. It is open
to any research contribution related to Computational Photography and
Aesthetics. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the

     o High dynamic range imaging and rendering;
     o Panorama acquistion and display;
     o Image stabilization and deblurring;
     o Denoising;
     o Image inpainting;
     o Image superresolution and zooming;
     o Relighting;
     o Lightfield acquisition;
     o Aesthetic ranking;
     o Composition analysis;
     o Authentication;
     o Art restoration;


Abstracts should be submitted to the conference webpage on Easychair
(registration required):


Abstracts should be 1 page long including the title of the
contribution, name and affiliation of the contributors, and a summary
of the work. The slides presented at the conference will be maintained
on the conference website for reference.
