The specialty of track “Advanced Imaging and Material Appearance” (AIMA) was created to offer academic courses on the  multiple interactions between Optics, Imaging and Visual quality assessment for manufacturing:

  • Advanced and Non-conventional Imaging systems (applications in Aeronautics and Space, Medical and Care technologies,  Security),
  • Lighting, Material apperance and Quality assessment (applications to Automotive, Luxury products, Design and Manufacturing),
  • Printed image for communication (applications to Graphical Arts, Security printing and document protection).
