He also obtained an HDR degree (accreditation to supervise research), from university Paris 13, in May 1994. He received 3 awards for doctoral supervision and research and award for scientific excellence 2010-2014. Dr. Beghdadi worked at different places including the "Groupe d'Analyse d'Images Biomédicales" (CNAM Paris) and "Laboratoire d'Optique des Solides" (University of Paris 6). During the period 1987-1998, he was with LPMTM CNRS Laboratory working on Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) materials image analysis. He published over than 200 international refereed scientific papers. He is a funding member and director of the L2TI laboratory which comprises more than 40 members. His research interests include image quality enhancement and assessment, compression, bio-inspired models for image analysis and physics-based image analysis. Dr Beghdadi is the founder and general co-chair of the European workshop on Visual Information Processing. He has also served as conference chair of ISSPA 2003, technical chair of ISSPA 2005, Track chair of ISSPA 2007 and session organizer and a member of the organizing and technical committees for many IEEE conferences. Dr Beghdadi is a Senior member of IEEE and EURASIP member"

Shoji Tominaga  received his B.E., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in  electrical engineering from Osaka University, Japan, in 1970, 1972, and  1975, respectively.  From 1976 to 2006, he was at Osaka  Electro-Communication University, Japan.  During the 1987-1988 academic  years, he was a visiting scholar at the Department of Psychology,  Stanford University.  In 2006, he joined Chiba University, Japan, where  he was a professor (2006-2013) and Dean (2011-2013) at Graduate School  of Advanced Integration Science.  He is now a specially appointed  researcher at Graduate School of Advanced Integration Science, Chiba  University.  His research interests include color imaging, illuminant  estimation, multispectral image analysis, and color image rendering.  He  is an editorial board member of Color Research and Application, an  executive committee member of International Colour Association (AIC),  and co-chair of the Computational Color Imaging Workshop (CCIW).  He is  a Life Fellow of IEEE, and a Fellow of IEICE, IS&T, and SPIE. 

Chris Murphy is currently president of Color Remedies™ and is based in New York City. He specializes in worldwide training and consulting in emerging color technologies and has extensive experience in implementing color management workflows. He is a respected conference and seminar speaker, and recently has been found teaching a semester class on color management and printing at the School of Visual Arts in New York City for their MPS Digital Photography program. He has been involved in computers & technology since he was in diapers, and as a professional trainer for over ten years. Some people believe he has extra-sensory vision, but he assures us that he does not.
