Special sessions

Special session1: Spectral imaging technology
Prof. Ichiro ISHIMARU, Kagawa Univ., Japan
Prof. Nathan Hagen, Utsunomiya Univ., Japan

Abstract: Spectral imaging is used in many fields of research and industry, from biomedical imaging to remote sensing, forensics to optical metrology, and more. This special session gathers together the latest research in spectral imaging technology --- advances in instrumentation, new techniques for utilizing spectral imaging data, and development of spectral imaging applications --- with an emphasis on instrumentation to bridge optomechatronics with data analysis and applications-related spectral imaging research.
