2016 Keynotes updated as information is received.

Gerd Häusler

Gerd Häusler (Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg)
Computational Imaging: How Much Imaging – How Much Computation? (abstract)
Gerd Häusler is a professor for physics at the Institute of Optics, Information and Photonics, University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany, where he started 1974, working with Adolf Lohmann. His major interest is to “understand the fundamental physical and information theoretical limits of optical 3D-sensors”. Aiming for 3D-sensors working at these limits, he founded “3D-Shape GmbH”, together with five of his PhD students (2001). Gerd Häusler published about 300 papers and more than 20 patents, among others: Fourier Domain OCT (“Spectral Radar”), White Light Interferometry on Rough Surfaces (“Coherence Radar”), Phase Measuring Deflectometry (“PMD”), Single Shot 3D-Camera (“Flying Triangulation”). He received the ”Rudolf Kingslake Award” of the SPIE, together with G. Ferrano (1981), he is EOS Fellow since 2012. From 1996-2010 he was a member of the executive board of the “German Society for Applied Optics”.

David Forsyth

David Forsyth (University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign)
Title: Relighting Pictures (abstract)

Dr. Forsyth is currently the Fulton-Watson-Copp chair professor in computer science at U. Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he moved from U.C Berkeley, where he was also a full professor.  He has occupied the Fulton-Watson-Copp chair in Computer Science at the University of Illinois since 2014. He has published over 130 papers on computer vision, computer graphics, and machine learning. Forsyth has served as program co-chair for IEEE Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition in 2000, 2011, and 2018, general co-chair for CVPR 2006 and 2015, program co-chair for the European Conference on Computer Vision 2008, and is a regular member of the program committee of all major international conferences on computer vision.  For six years he served on the SIGGRAPH program committee, and is a regular reviewer for that conference. He received best paper awards at the International Conference on Computer Vision and at the European Conference on Computer Vision. Dr. Forsyth received an IEEE technical achievement award for 2005 for his research and became an IEEE Fellow in 2009, and an ACM Fellow in 2014.  His textbook, “Computer Vision: A Modern Approach” (joint with J. Ponce and published by Prentice Hall) is now widely adopted as a course text (adoptions include MIT, U. Wisconsin-Madison, UIUC, Georgia Tech and U.C. Berkeley).  He is currently in a second term as Editor in Chief, IEEE TPAMI.

Marc Walton

Marc Walton (Northwestern University)
Title: Computational Imaging of Cultural Heritage (abstract)
Marc Walton currently holds the position of Research Associate Professor of Materials Science and Engineering in the McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science at Northwestern University. He was trained in Chemistry and Art History at Clark University. He earned a D.Phil. from the University of Oxford in archaeological science following an MA in art history, as well as a diploma in the conservation of works of art, from the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University. After earning his Ph.D, Marc worked at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art for two years prior to joining the Getty Conservation Institute in 2005, where he was an associate scientist responsible for the scientific study of antiquities at the J. Paul Getty Museum. In addition, he established and ran the analytical laboratory at the Getty Villa site, and served as co-PI on a National Science Foundation Cultural Heritage Science grant on ancient Athenian pottery.  His research has focused primarily on trade and manufacture of ancient objects.

Francis Halzen

Francis Halzen (University of Wisconsin – Madison)
Title: IceCube and the Discovery of High-Energy Cosmic Neutrinos (abstract)
Francis Halzen is the Hilldale and Gregory Breit Professor in the Department of Physics at the University of Wisconsin at Madison. Dr. Halzen is a theoretician studying problems at the interface of particle physics, astrophysics and cosmology. Since 1987, he has been working on the AMANDA experiment, a first-generation neutrino telescope at the South Pole. AMANDA observations represent a proof of concept for IceCube, a recently completed kilometer-scale observatory.
