The first European Light Field Imaging
Workshop (ELFI 2019) was held on June 04–06 2019 in Hotel Yastrebets,
Borovets, Bulgaria. Borovets is one of the most famous Bulgarian mountain
resorts located in the breath-taking mountains of Rila,
and only one-hour drive from Sofia airport. The workshop took place a week
after the workshop on Computational Imaging with Novel Image Modalities
(Light fields, Omni-directional Images, Digital Holograms) to be held on May
27-28 2019 in INRIA, Rennes, France.
The workshop spanned a wide range of
disciplines: multidimensional signal processing, visual computing, visual
neuroscience, optics and physics. Researchers from these areas were invited
to participate at ELFI 2019. The workshop consisted of invited talks, regular
and poster sessions. The workshop organizers aimed at establishing a fruitful
atmosphere for creative discussions between students and professionals from
the Academia and industry.
ELFI 2019 was organized by the Centre
for Immersive Visual Technologies, Tampere
University, Finland, and sponsored by the European Training Network on Full Parallax
Imaging. This was the last training event of ETN-FPI and the first edition of
a series of workshops, the ETN-FPI partners aim at establishing. With the
continuing support from projects, institutions and companies working in the
area of light field imaging, ELFI is looking forward to establish itself as a
leading European scientific event.
