CP7 researcher Sepideh Samadzadegan from TUD, Darmstadt visited Océ Print Logic Technologies SA in July, 2014 on 2 weeks secondment with the aim of collaborating with ESR 6 and scitentist-in-charge Maria V. Ortiz Segovia to Control colour-printed gloss by varnish-halftones. Sepideh’s research involves spectral gamut mapping which could be more complicated when another attribute such as “gloss” is considered along with the process inks. During the secondment Sepideh focused on printing colour-printed gloss to investigate the colour-gloss relation by conducting psychophysical experiments.
We are happy to inform that 3 papers submitted by the CP7 researchers are accepted at CIC 2014 for oral presentation. For more details please click here.
CP7.0 project presentation and participation at the Graphic Arts Special Interest Group meeting in Heidelberg, Germany.
CP7.0 researcher Steven Le Moan presented the project status and results at the ICC’s Graphic Arts Special Interest Group meeting held in Heidelberg, Germany on June 24, 2014. His presentation was a follow-up dissemination activity from last years presentation at the Graphic Arts Color Experts’ Day organised by ICC at Frankfurt, Germany in June 2013. For more details please click here.
We are happy to inform that the abstract submitted by CP7 researcher Melissa Olen has been accepted for an oral presentation at the Image Conference 2014 in Berlin, Germany. This oral presentation will provide Melissa with an opportunity to submit a full paper to their journal “The International Journal of the Image” which is a peer reviewed journal.
On Thursday June 26, 2014, CP7 researcher Teun Baar presented his ‘thesis in five minutes’ at his university Télécom ParisTech. The presentation was an exercise to present the context and the core of his thesis, in a 5 minute PhD pitch format. Teun decided to present his thesis in French, as an extra exercise to present in the language he became more familiar with during his recent work in France and to get more familiar with the French vocabulary concerning his thesis project. The presentation was received well with compliments for the clarity and the French. The video of the interview can be watched on the Teun’s private youtube page or on his linked in page.
The fifth training event (TE5) was held at the University of the West of England, Bristol, UK and the National Gallery, London, UK, on April-May (27 – 2) 2014. The event was attended by all the research fellows as part of the training program in the CP7.0 project.
The training focused on exploring beyond the boundaries of the current state of digital printing and colour management, with emphasis on print application and knowledge transferability between the arts and sciences. For more details please click here.
We are happy to announce that CP7 researcher Teun Baar at OCÉ had a successful mid term evaluation on April 1, 2014, for the research and training done till now in this PhD. The aim of his work done till now was to control additional channels to current printing systems that are introduced next to the standard CMYK colour channels, and to create a system to translate multi-dimensional image data to actual printouts. Such multi-channel images contain, for example, information of spectral colour, 3D surface or relief, or local reflectance functions. His work mainly did concentrate on the extra dimension being the z-axis, by controlling the surface modulation of the printout, influencing the reflection properties of the print surface. In the near future, the work should result in a journal publication.
CP7 researcher Radovan Slavuj from GUC, Gjøvik visited associate partner Fraunhofer FOKUS for a 3 weeks secondments with the aim to work and collaborate with scientist Dr. Jeremie Gerhardt at FOKUS on inverse printer models and halftoning for multi-channel printing. Radovan’s research involves inverse printer models and integration with halftoning. Through this secondment Radovan focused on optimising these printer and halftoning models for multi-channel printing environment.
CP7 experienced researcher Steven Le Moan from TUD, Germany visited Gjøvik University College on a 3 week secondment to use the Colorlab’s equipment and expertise to make hyper spectral acquisitions of different scenes and objects with the aim to generate a spectral image database. Steven collaborated with researchers from Gjøvik University College (Dr. Sony George and PhD student Ruven Pillay) in acquiring the images. This secondment provided Steven with an opportunity to work and experience with hyper-spectral acquisitions and collaborate outside the CP7 project. In the near future, the work should result in a publication describing the database.
