Multi-Media, Multi-Material Color Control Symposium
Feb '11
American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists (AATCC) and the Inter-Society Color Council (ISCC) will jointly sponsor the 4M Color Management: Multi-Media, Multi-Material Color Control Symposium. This two-day program will be held April 28-29, 2011 at the Hilton University Place in Charlotte. The program will focus on on-line and multi-material color control, developments in digital color management in the supply chain, and color appearance models for multiple substrates.

Keynote speakers are world-renowned color scientists, Rolf G. Kuehni, and Dr. James A. Ferwerda, Associate Professor, Rochester Institute of Technology.

Ferwerda's presentation, Envisioning the Material World, will discuss techniques to develop models relating the physical properties of materials to their visual appearances. Dr. Ferwerda will describe taking advantage of the limits of material perception to develop new techniques for efficiently and realistically rendering complex scenes, and will also discuss recent efforts to develop advanced display systems that allow hands-on interaction with virtual materials and surfaces.

Kuehni's Color Control of Textiles: Paths to Move Forward will discuss color quality control (reflectance measurement and calculation) over the last 60+ years. He will discuss variability issues involving observers, methods, and materials as well as the pros and cons of some paths of improvement. Kuehni will also address the investment needed to make measurable and statistically supported progress to solve this problem.

Additional presentations include:

• Optimum Color Communications; John Darsey, Color Solutions International
• Analysis of Variability in Perceptual Assessments of Color; Renzo Shamey, North Carolina State University
• The Future of Lighting: Color, Efficiency, and Compliance; Ann Laidlaw, X-Rite Inc.

• Automated Closed-Loop Systems to Control the Color of Extruded Plastics; Ken Phillips, X-Rite Inc.
• Color for Packaging: Curves, Color Management, and Brand Colors; Mark Samworth, ESKOArtwork
• G7: Enabling a Global Print Supply Chain; Jeff Budd, Hallmark Cards Inc.
• Tolerable Tolerances: Managing the Complexities of Customized Tolerances; Chris Hipps, Datacolor
