International Symposium on Technologies for Digital Photo Fulfillment Issues 2015 Call for Papers


Springfield, CA—The Society for Imaging Science and Technology is asking those interested to submit an abstract for the 6th International Symposium on Technologies for Digital Photo Fulfillment (TDPF) by July 27, 2014. Final accepted papers will be due November 10, 2014.

Colocating with the Digital Imaging Marketing Association (DIMA) 2015 Conference—the premier educational event for digital imaging professionals—TDPF 2015 will be held January 4–5, 2015 at Bally’s in Las Vegas, Nevada.

TDPF offers an opportunity for product engineers, researchers, and photo lab/store owners to discuss the advances, synergies and future directions of creating, printing, sharing, displaying and archiving consumer and professional photos and photo-related products. It will consider the question: What does photo fulfillment look like today? Members of the imaging industry and academia are invited to discuss and share advances that expand the photographic market with products and technologies that enable consumers to create, preserve, share and visualize their stories.

A broad inclusion of topics will cover image capture, digital processing, and both hard copy and digital viewing outputs. The conference ties together preservation (how to preserve family stories in a digital world), the cloud (sharing stories created from family photos) and interesting new print products (such as combined digital and print photo albums).

A sample of topics includes: Capture systems—smartphones, DSCs, film and HD video, and image-processing algorithms; Integration products—photos and video, print and cloud, scanned and born digital; Digitization products and services—film, movies, video and prints; Photo books—online and retail, assisted construction, automation and hybrid digital/hard copy; Long-term preservation—prints, photo books and digital files; New print fulfillment products—retail kiosks, 3D printers and wide-format printing; Home, office, retail and commercial fulfillment systems—from snapshot to 3D printers; Premium photo products, such as images printed on specialty materials; Use of soft copy display for photo viewing, sharing, organizing and online fulfillment; Output media—inkjet, EP, thermal, silver halide, novel substrates; Output equipment—wet and dry printers and minilabs, processors, kiosks and photo book retail production; and Viewing and sharing systems, utilizing cloud, social media and Web 2.0

TDPF 2015 registration includes access to the full DIMA program, 2015 PMA@CES talks and exhibit, and the 2015 International CES keynotes and exhibits.
