9th Fraunhofer IMS Workshop CMOS Imaging

Registration is closed

Seeing more than just Photons

After a series of very successful workshops since 2002 we are happy to announce our 9th workshop on CMOS Imaging, a forum for the European industry and academia to meet and exchange the latest developments in CMOS based imaging technology. 15 presentations of excellent speakers stand for the high quality level of the event.

This year’s key topics are 3D imaging and LiDAR technologies, detectors for space, quantum imaging, and new trends in CMOS imaging, among others.
