Presentation by Radovan Slavuj at Forum Farge 2015

CP7 researcher Radovan Slavuj presented his PhD research work at Forum Farge 2015 conference in Olso, Norway on April 17th, 2015. Radovan presented his research carried out till now on Spectral Modelling for multi-channel printers discussing about the work done till now and how it can be applied in everyday scenarios.Radovan Slavuj

Forum Farge is a Norwegian association of people working with Colour. The main aim of this association is to stimulate Colour research on all aspects of colour, to disseminate research-based knowledge about colour, and to facilitate the application of this knowledge to solve colour-related issues in art, design, architecture, science and technology at national level.

Three papers presented at IARIGAI conference 2013 in Swansea, UK

CP7 researchers Ludovic Gustafsson Coppel and Paula Žitinski Elías have recently returned from the Advances in Printing and Media Technology conference (IARIGAI) in Swansea, Wales. Paula presented a paper about multilevel halftoning. The second paper deals with spectral colour prediction of halftone prints using probabilistic models. The third paper shows the feasibility of spectral proofing (i.e. reproducing the appearance of spot colours in multiple illuminants) with a multi-channel printer and is a collaboration with CP7 researcher Radovan Slavuj and Steven Le Moan.

A successful pre-defence for CP7 researcher Radovan Slavuj

Radovan SlavujCP7 researcher Radovan Slavuj had a successful pre-defence on September 18, 2014 at Gjøvik. There, all the work that has been done around printer modeling and halftoning was presented and future directions were suggested and discussed. The Pre-Defense had concept of a real defense with two opponents, supervisors and audience who were free to ask questions. Title “Spectral Colour Reproduction with Multichannel printers” represent work that has been done until now, but do not necessarily absorbs all material from final thesis. Overall, the timing to conduct Pre-Defence was right as there is one more year left for Radovan to make the thesis more unique and that significant contribution could be made in the field.


News Training Events

CP7.0 Training event 5, UWE and National Gallery, UK

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.

Radovan Slavuj’s visit to associate partner Fraunhofer Fokus

Radovan SlavujCP7 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.
