Call for
Widely regarded as the ultimate 3D display technology, holography has largely become digital in recent years, yet the most visually stunning holograms continue to be made through analog methods. This conference offers the opportunity for sharing the latest advances in both domains.
  • techniques and concepts in display holography
  • "electro-holography," meaning the electronic generation, transmission, or display of holographic image information, and the creation of dynamic or interactive holographic images
  • spatial light modulators, computational methods, and related technologies relevant to advances in digital holographic imaging
  • perceptual issues related to viewing of holographic images
The widespread application of holography to commercial electronics and communication applications requires recording holograms and diffractive elements in real materials. Successful engineering solutions require understanding of handling and process issues, as well as familiarity with the performance properties of existing and designed materials. This conference will focus on holographic recording materials and processes used in display, engineering, medical, energy, and data storage applications, and on holographic optical elements (HOEs), which take advantage of material properties. New materials will be discussed, as well as advances in existing materials.
  • materials for holography and diffractive optics
  • holographic performance and optical properties
  • mechanism of image formation
  • modeling and analysis of holographic performance
  • durability and environmental testing of materials and devices, and materials issues affecting device construction
  • HOEs and DOEs utilizing materials properties for enhanced performance
  • improved processing of materials, including techniques and processes for production of holograms, HOEs, and DOEs
  • real-time and active holographic materials and processes for information storage and dynamically switchable holograms
  • WDM applications of holographic materials
  • applications and demonstrations of new or improved materials in display holography, security holograms, HOEs, DOEs, holographic information storage, and real-time holography.
Holography has emerged from the research laboratory to find applications to communication and engineering problems, capture of historical artifacts, and artistic expression. This conference will highlight advances of holographic and technology, especially those that impact the practice and applications of holography to imaging and display engineering.
  • 3D imaging for application in industry, medicine, education, advertising, and other visual communication areas, with an emphasis on the visualization of 3D digital data by holographic means; holographic stereograms and computer-generated image holograms are areas of strong current interest including HOEs in autostereoscopic 3D systems
  • processes, hardware, and techniques: new systems and applications for the recording, producing, manufacturing, or optimizing of holograms and diffractive elements
  • digital reconstructions of holograms for image analysis
  • metrology, microscopy, nondestructive testing, and holographic optical elements, emphasizing the application and engineering issues rather than the underlying scientific principles or component fabrication issues
  • artistic applications of holography and the use of holography in recording and display of historical items.
