The sixth training event (TE6) was held at Océ Print Logic Technologies SA, France , on October 23 – 27, 2014. The event was attended by all the research fellows as part of the training program in the CP7.0 project. The event at Océ Print Logic Technologies SA was focused on lectures and discussions from key staff at Océ about, business models and their relation to research, case studies related to 2.5D printing and 3D printing technology, its pros and cons and intellectual property rights related to these technologies.

In September, CP7 researcher Ludovic Gustafsson Coppel from Gjøvik University College visited the University of the West of England, Bristol, and Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research IGD, Darmstadt, as part of his secondments. The aim of the visit was to model the light reflection from layered materials in two different applications: multi-layered coloured prints with inkjet printer to improve colour output of original artwork (in collaboration with ESR Melissa Olen in Bristol) and colour management in 3D colour printing.
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.
