Michael A. Kriss


Dr Kriss received his Ph.D. in Physics from UCLA in 1969.  He worked for the Eastman Kodak Company from 1969 through 1992 where his research focused on image structure, image quality, image processing and digital imaging systems.  Dr Kriss managed several laboratories focusing on digital imaging and spent three years for Kodak in Japan.  Dr Kriss joined the University of Rochester in 1993 as a member of the Center for Electronic Imaging Systems where he became the Executive Director, and taught digital imaging courses out of the Electrical and Computer Engineer Department.  Dr Kriss joined the Sharp Laboratories of America in Camas, Washington in 1999 and retired in 2004.  He currently is active as a consultant, an officer of the IS&T, and active in the development of IS&T and SPIE conferences.

Li Yang


Current: Senior Project Manager at Innventia.

My working activities consists of three major parts. The first coordinating and leading long-term projects regarding printability and print quality issues. The second, to represent the company in contacting universities and reaesrch institutions, in steering projects which are conducted by the research institues. Besides, I am supervising diploma-work students and PhD students.

Finding the physical origins that govern the practical issues/processes has been the most important part of my professional experiences. I have been working with the revision of Kubelka-Munk model to enable it applicable to a broader range of fields; the ink-paper interaction (ink-transfer and ink setting) in relation to the paper- and ink-properties; the effect of ink penetration on dimensional stability and color reproduction; modelling physical and optical dot gain.

At an earlier time, I worked with pure physics, simulating molecular structure and spectroscopy.

Finding the causes and eventually solutions to various issues concerning the quality of newsprint, such as linting, dimensional stability, are my major work for the time being.

Gianluigi Ciocca


Gianluigi Ciocca took his degree (Laurea) in Computer Science at the University of Milan in 1998, and since then he has been a fellow at the Institute of Multimedia Information Technologies of the Italian National Research Council, where his research has focused on the development of systems for the management of image and video databases and the development of new methodologies and algorithms for automatic indexing. He is currently a researcher in computer science at DISCo (Dipartimento di Informatica, Sistemistica e Comunicazione) of the University of Milano-Bicocca, working on video analysis and abstraction

Pochi Yeh


Electronics and Photonics: electro-optics, optical phase conjugation, nonlinear optics, dynamic holography, optical computing, neural networks. Pochi Yeh obtained his Ph.D. in Physics from the California Institute of Technology in 1977 for research on nonlinear optics and optical properties of superlattices. Before he joined the ECE faculty at UCSB in 1989, Dr. Yeh was the Principal Scientist of the Optics Department at Rockwell International Science Center in Thousand Oaks, where he carried out research in the areas of electro-optics, nonlinear optics, optical phase conjugation, and optical computing. Dr. Yeh is known for several important contributions in optics, including the development of a matrix method for optics of layered media, the theory of photorefractive phase conjugators, and the theory of wave mixing in nonlinear media. In the area of applications, he is the originator of several new device concepts, including phase conjugate optical interferometers, reconfigurable optical interconnection, parallel image subtraction, and optical learning machines. Dr. Yeh was named “Engineer of the Year,” at Rockwell Science Center and received the Leonardo da Vinci Award in 1985. He is a Fellow of the Optical Society of America, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, and the Photonics Society of Chinese-Americans. Dr. Yeh received the Rudolf Kingslake Medal and Prize from the International Optical Engineering Society in 1989.

Claire Gu


Claire Gu’s research interests include fiber optics, holographic data storage, liquid crystal displays, nonlinear optics, and optical information processing; with a current emphasis on fiber sensors using SERS (surface enhanced Raman scattering). She has published more than 180 journal and conference papers in these areas. In addition, she has co-authored a text/reference book on “Optics of Liquid Crystal Displays”, and co-edited two technical books on photorefractive nonlinear optics and applications. She received a National Science Foundation Young Investigator Award in 1993. From 2000 to 2006, she served as a Topical Editor of Optics Letters. In 2007, she has been elected a Fellow of SPIE (The International Society of Optical Engineering).

Rajesh Kumar



In January 2014, Dr. Kumar was an associate research professor (on leave of absence) of computer science at Johns Hopkins having rejoined the department in 2007 to set up the visual imaging and surgical
robotics (VISR) laboratory. Before returning to Hopkins, Dr. Kumar worked at Intuitive Surgical Inc. where he developed and validated the prototype and paradigm of the two-console daVinci Si Surgical System.
His research interests were in medical robotics and its instruction/training, visual medical imaging, and related applications. Recently, he was expanded considerable personal energy on research ethics.
