Digital photography is experiencing explosive growth both in the consumer and professional markets. Digital camera sales have exceeded multi-use film camera sales for several years, and since 2004, cell-phone camera sales exceeded both digital and film camera sales combined. Due to the many advances, by way of new component technologies, lens systems, and image processing techniques, digital photography has become a reality for consumers and professionals alike.

This conference serves to bring together researchers, scientists, and engineers working in the imaging field to describe recent progress in digital and computational photography and all its relevant areas, from capture, processing, color, compression, transmission and applications, to photo-finishing and hard and soft output. Papers are solicited in the following areas:
