I would like to inform you that the 2019 International Conference on Imaging Systems and Techniques (IST) , that took place at Abu Dhabi, UAE, December 8-10, 2019, has been a successful event and attracted a number of high-quality papers. Photos from the event have been posted at:
Many thanks to Professor Mohammed Ghazal and Professor El-Baz Ayman for the outstanding organization of the Conference. The contributing efforts of Professor Luay Fraiwan-my former student-are truly commendable. UAE is a beautiful country, it is anticipated that more fruitful events will take place; it is impressive that STEM students had a strong presence at the IST, by exhibiting a number of meaningful contributions with significant technical and societal impact. The IST is a premier conference in imaging, integrating physics, engineering, and biology concepts and principles to the image formation, metrology, analysis, and processing, including AI. Next year the IST will take place in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, at the National Science And Technology Museum, under the leadership of Professor Chi Hung Hwang. Kaohsiung is very close to Taipei and1.5 h flight time from Hong Kong.
