At the 16th Ghent University FEA Research Symposium, held on Wednesday 9 December 2015, Attila Fésus was awarded the Atlas Copco Best poster Award.
Out of 77 posters, he was awarded this honor for his work titled "Paint loss detection and virtual inpainting to assist conservation of the Ghent Altarpiece (het Lam Gods)".
The PANORAMA project, in which iMinds-IPI is a work package leader and one of two Belgian organizations in the project, was awarded with the Exhibition Award at the 2015 European Nanoelectronics Forum held 1-2 December in Berlin, Germany. During this yearly event, approximately 60 European funded projects were present with posters and demos. The PANORAMA project is co-funded by grants from Belgium, Italy, France, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom, and the ENIAC Joint Undertaking, and ran from April 2012 to December 2015.
For her master thesis "Ontwikkeling van een meer-assig bouwplatform voor additive manufacturing", IPI/VIS colleague Sanne Roegiers has won the finals of the 2015 IE-net prizes. She won both the prize for master theses in the category of "Industriële ingenieur" as well the press prize.

Prof. Pizurica has been awarded the 44th "de Boelpaepe" prize. The "de Boelpaepe" prize been awarded on a bi-annual basis since 1926 by the Académie royale des sciences, des lettres et des beaux-arts de Belgique (Royal Academy of Science, Letters and Fine Arts of Belgium). It rewards scientific contributions in photography and imaging. The award ceremony is scheduled for Monday, December 14th 2015, at 16h00.
Wenzhi Liao et. al. from Ghent University is the winner of the Paper Contest of the 2014 IEEE GRSS Data Fusion Contest, "Fusion of thermal infrared hyperspectral and VIS RGB data using guided filtering and supervised fusion graph". The Paper Contest of the 2014 Data Fusion Contest, organized by the Image Analysis and Data Fusion (IADF) Technical Committee of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society was opened on February 19, 2014. The submission deadline was June 15, 2014. Participants submitted open-topic manuscripts using the data released for the Contest.
Approximately 30 teams worldwide entered the “Best Paper Challenge” of the 2013 IEEE GRSS Data Fusion Contest with innovative approaches to analyze hyperspectral and LiDAR data. The top-ten results, ranked based on the cumulative scores from a double blind peer-review process are summarized below along with a brief description of the algorithms and the contact information of the authors.
Title: GRAPH-BASED FEATURE FUSION OF HYPERSPECTRAL AND LIDAR REMOTE SENSING DATA USING MORPHOLOGICAL FEATURES
Adriaan Barri, Petr Dostal, Lukas Krasula, and Asli Kumcu won Best Study Presentation for their open-lab day work supervised by prof. Patrick Le Callet, on "Bias in the the variance of subjective scores due to the rating scale," at the first Qualinet Summer School on Quality Assessment for Ph.D. students and researchers. The summer school was held 12-17 August 2012 in Ilmenau, Germany and organised by QUALINET, Ilmenau University of Technology, and Fraunhofer IDMT.
Sebastian Gruenwedel received the best paper award for the paper "A Best View Selection in Meetings through Attention Analysis Using a Multi-camera Network" at the 6th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Distributed Smart Cameras (ICDSC 2012), which was held in Hong Kong, China.
