Call for
The objective of this conference is to bring together researchers interested in the development of unconventional imaging and adaptive-optics systems. Therefore, we seek papers that:
  1. describe novel imaging and adaptive-optics techniques using unconventional means of sensing, data collection, data processing, and interpretation;
  2. address laboratory-, space-, airborne-, and ground-based systems, including those requiring compensation for distributed-volume aberrations (deep turbulence), high-speed aberrations (aero effects), scattering media, and speckle phenomena; and
  3. seek to design effective and efficient algorithms for processing different kinds of available data and constraints to obtain solutions to many kinds of imaging and adaptive-optics applications.

Papers from industry, government, academia, and other research organizations are welcome on the following and related areas:

  • system modeling and regularization
  • imaging from active or passive illumination
  • imaging from image-plane measurements, pupil-plane measurements, or both
  • imaging from synthetic aperture ladar and inverse synthetic aperture ladar systems
  • inverse problems using probabilistic and Bayesian methods
  • imaging from diversity measurements, including phase diversity, polarization diversity, aperture diversity, wavelength diversity, and wavefront sensing
  • imaging using ultrafast pulses
  • radar, lidar, and sonar imaging
  • biological and molecular imaging
  • imaging of, or through turbulent, refracting, or highly scattering media
  • profile inversion
