Gamaya sponsors the 6th IEEE Workshop on Hyperspectral Imaging and Signal Processing (WHISPERS) taking place on 24 – 27th of June at the SwissTech Convention Center, Lausanne, Switzerland. The aim of this workshop is to bring together all the people involved in hyperspectral data processing and remote sensing. Please find below the main scope of the hyperspectral imaging workshop WHISPERS.

1. Hyperspectral data:

– signals, as provided by spectrometers and processed individually
– images, from the ground using microscopes and spectrometers to airborne or satellite sensors, up to astrophysical data
– models: models of the sensors or of the sensed scene, including physical considerations

2. Processing of the hyperspectral data includes the acquisition, the calibration and the analysis (image processing, signal processing, feature extraction, dimension reduction, unmixing and source separation, classification).

3. Following topics are covered during hyperspectral imaging workshop:

– Spectrometers and hyperspectral sensors : design and calibration
– Physical modeling, physical analysis
– Noise estimation and reduction
– Dimension reduction
– Unmixing, source separation, endmember extraction
– Segmentation, classification
– High performance computing and compression

4. Spectrometry is now used in a wide range of domains, including following commercial applications:

– airborne and satellite remote sensing,
– monitoring of the environment, pollution, precision agriculture,
– chemistry
– biomedical imagery
– defense application
– industrial inspection
– astrophysics
