The Extreme Imaging Competition

Canon Information Systems Research Australia (CiSRA) hosts the annual Extreme Imaging Competition to recognise tertiary students who 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!

Collaboration with the DICTA conference

The 2015 competition will be held in collaboration with the Australian Pattern Recognition Society's Digital Image Computing: Techniques and Applications DICTA conference. The competition will run as two categories:

  • DICTA category: all DICTA papers where the majority of the work is by Australasian university students are automatically eligible
  • Open category: Australasian students are invited to submit papers recently published in any journal or conference
