Pre-Conference Workshop & Colour Lab Tour with The University of Alicante

Tuesday 3rd October 2017 | 13:00 - 16:15

The Colour & Vision Group of the University of Alicante is an inter and multidisciplinary research team focused on colour science and technology, and visual perception and ergonomics, involved in the search of technological-scientific solutions where human vision performs an important role in the optimisation and development of industrial processes (even prototypes), and, visual comfort and security of leisure and work activities.

The Laboratory of Colour & Vision has a relevant infrastructure in scientific instruments and resources for specifying the visual, optical and colorimetric properties of any material (http://web.ua.es/en/gvc ). Its scientific-technological offer copes with the next issues for colour science and technology topic: spectral and colorimetric characterisation of special (luminescent, metallic, pearlescent, functional pigments) and normal materials; coloration of materials with conventional dyes and hybrid nano-pigments, and its optimisation by statistical design of experiments (DoE); digital colour reproduction, etc.

The workshop will explore upcoming projects and innovations within the pigment and colour space with reference to day to day applications.
