The annual SPIE Defense and Security Sensing conference draws thousands of people from across the world. People from industry, sponsors and collaborators come together to listen to and discuss defense, security and sensing applications.

RIT is sending 20 students and faculty from the Chester F. Carlson Center for Imaging Sciences to present at the conference April 23–27 at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore.

Student presenters include Jamie Albano on “Euclidean commute time distance embedding with application to spectral anomaly detection,” reporting on research in collaboration with the RIT School of Mathematical Science; Javier Concha, a Fulbright scholar from Chile, on “Atmospheric compensation for WorldView-2 satellite and in-water component retrieval”; and David Niloesk on “Geo-accurate primitive extraction from three-dimensional, image-derived point clouds,” a project funded by the Department of Energy and the National Science Foundation.

“It is a particularly good venue for our students to present their research and interact with individuals from academia, government and industry,” says David Messinger, associate research professor in image science.

In addition to those from the Center for Imaging Science attending the conference, students and faculty across RIT will be participating as presenters, technical committee members, conference chairs, as well as teaching classes at the conference.
