EMVA Annual Business Conference 2019 – Speaker Announcement Part I

EMVA is pleased to welcome its guests at the Business Conference 2019 in Copenhagen from 16 to 18 May. The program of the conference is packed with many interesting presentations from top class speakers, which we will introduce successively.

The EMVA is pleased about the presentations of these two top speakers:

Dr. Christian Hörr, Head of Software Development at Carl Zeiss Optotechnik

‘Exploiting the Power of Angular Illumination Methods’

Christian Hörr is Head of Software Development at Carl Zeiss Optotechnik GmbH, where his work focuses on overarching topics within optical metrology, computational geometry, image processing, and robotics.

He received a PhD in computer science from Chemnitz University of Technology in 2011, where is research topics have been non-photorealistic rendering, shape analysis, and data mining applied to the domain of archaeology.

Illuminating an object from different but well-defined directions gives additional clues on its shape and material, which would be hard if not impossible to derive from a single image. In contrast to multi-camera setups, additional light sources are available at very low costs and they usually do not require overly precise calibration. In this talk, we show examples from different applications such as microscopy, surface inspection, and optical metrology, where angular illumination methods achieve astonishing improvements over conventional setups and often exceed their physical limitations at the cost of acquiring and processing a much higher number of images.
