Tribute to Francis Schmitt, a satellite workshop of the “A week of Color in Paris” conference

Le dimanche 20 octobre 2019 à Télécom Paris / Barrault. Workshop à partir de 14 heures. Accès sur inscription auprès de Henri Maître.

A workshop dedicated to the memory of Francis SCHMITT, who served from 1974 to 2008 as a professor in image processing at Telecom Paris (former ENST = Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications).
Pr. Schmitt contributed to the creation of the image processing lab there and set up the courses on Color, 3D, Image Synthesis and Virtual Reality. He devoted his research to the precise measurement of colour from real objects, to the conception of reliable colour management processes, to powerful and accurate meshing techniques for 3D object representation. Many of his theoretical contributions in these domains were developed in support of Museum collection protection and diffusion.
This tribute is a satellite workshop of the Color and Imaging Conference-CIC27,  which takes place in Paris from October 21 to October 25, 2019.
