The following speakers will give lectures at Plenoptics 2013:
Prof. Manuel Martinez Corral is currently Professor of Optics at the University of Valencia, Spain. Since 1999 he has been with the “3D Imaging and Display Group”, at the Optics Department. His research interests includes focusing properties of light, point-spread-function engineering in 3D microscopy, and 3D imaging acquisition and display. He has published more than sixty technical articles in major journals on these topics.
Dr. Tibor Balogh, CEO and founder of Holografika Ltd. With a background in electrical engineering, Tibor Balogh set up his first company in Hungary in 1989, producing embossed security holograms. He established Holografika in 1996, developing optoelectronic technology and prototypes for laser-based 3D and true-colour holographic displays. Holografika holds several 3D-related patents and has developed 3D visualisation technology, including display devices, software applications, and data compression solutions used in medicine, security and gaming.
Prof. Pier Luigi Dragotti is an Associate Professor in the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Department at the Imperial College, London. He received the PhD degree from EPFL, Switzerland, in April 2002. He has held several visiting positions at Stanford University, Bell Labs, Lucent Technologies, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
Dr. Christian Perwass is the founder of the Raytrix company, motivated by the vision to develop and introduce innovative visual media technologies to the industry-, scientific-, and entertainment-market. He was formerly with the department of computer science at Christian Albrechts University in Kiel. Christian Perwass has published a large number of articles and a book on Geometric algebra and its applications in the Engineering sciences.
Prof. Andrew Lumsdaine is professor of Computer Science and director of Center for Research in Extreme Scale Technologies at Indiana University, Bloomington, USA. He is an Associate Director of the Digital Science Center and Director of the Open Systems Lab. Lumsdaine received his Ph.D. from MIT in 1992 and from 1992 through 2001. His research interests include computational science and engineering, parallel and distributed computing, software engineering, generic programming, mathematical software, and numerical analysis. He has had many major contributions to Plenoptic theory and its applications.
