Press Release and full details
The Extreme Imaging Competition:
CiSRA's annual imaging comprtition focuses on imaging science projects where students undertake original scientific or engineering research to develop imaging systems and algorithms that advance imaging beyond the boundaries of creative photography and video.
Canon’s success is based on bringing leading-edge imaging science and image analysis into our everyday lives. The competition gives Canon the opportunity to recognise excellence and creativity in Australian research in imaging. The competition is open to any student – undergraduate or post-graduate – provided an original contribution to imaging is at the heart of the project. Students may be from any discipline, including engineering, computer science, the physical sciences, medicine, astronomy or archaeology.
The prize has been established to encourage students to extend the boundaries of imaging technology within their disciplines. We hope the prize will support some of the best Australian research in imaging and encourage greater participation in imaging-related research in Australia. You could develop the extreme technologies of today that will become the commonplace technologies of tomorrow!
