McGill PhD student Jonathan Bouchard (supervised by Professor Jim Clark) was awarded an “Honorable Mention” for the best Student Paper Award for our paper “Quality Control of Stereoscopic 3-D Compositing Using Half-Occlusion Geometry” published in the Motion Imaging Journal, awarded by the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) in October 2017. Congratulations Jonathan!
Congratulations to Jonathan Bouchard, McGill PhD student and his supervisor Professor James Clark. Their paper “Half-Occluded Regions: The Key to Detecting a Diverse Array of Defects in S3D Imagery” won the best paper prize at the IC3D 2017 Conference in December 2017, and was awarded the Lumiere Prize at the Conference Gala.
The IEEE Photonics Society Engineering Achievement Award is given to recognize an exceptional engineering contribution which has had a significant impact on the development of laser or electro-optic technology or the commercial application of technology within the past 10 years. It may be given to an individual or to a group for a single contribution of significant work in the field. No candidate shall have previously received a major IEEE award for the same work.
