[visionlist] Information Display Measurements Standard (IDMS)

The message below announces a new display measurement standard that may be of use to vision scientists.
Unlike many other such standards, this one does not mandate particular values, but rather defines terms and

describes measurement techniques.

The document is free, online, and available now.

Groundbreaking
Display Measurement Standard to Launch at
Display Week

The
International Committee for Display Metrology
(ICDM) and the Society for Information Display
(SID) are proud to announce the release of
the Information Display Measurements Standard
(IDMS). The IDMS will be the “Go-To”
document for standard measurement procedures
to quantify electronic display characteristics
and qualities. It is the culmination of years
of effort by engineers and scientists across
dozens of organizations to codify the science
of display measurement, explain some of the
difficulties associated with making measurements,
and offer solutions to help make the measurements
properly. The IDMS has benefited from the
expertise of display metrologists, electrical,
mechanical, software and optical engineers,
physicists, vision scientists, and many other
display-related disciplines.

To
promote the spread and use of the measurement
procedures and techniques within the display
community, an electronic version of the IDMS
will be made freely available. It is unprecedented
in the display community that a piece of work
of this scope and depth be distributed at
no charge. This decision follows the philosophy
of the ICDM and SID, which is to provide the
standard to as wide of an audience as possible
to help establish the techniques within the
document as the universal choice for display
measurements. SID and the ICDM expect this
document to continue to evolve over time,
with updates, supplemental files, and other
value-added content to follow.

The
IDMS features the following:

Self-contained
measurement procedures that are clear
and easy to use

A
library of commonly used and newly developed
display measurements

Dozens
of new display measurements for current
and future displays

Adaptability
– allows a variety of equipment for measurements

Tutorials
and other supplemental sections included

Includes
diagnostics, cautions and useful hints

Benefits
of using the IDMS include:

Lower
costs: consume less time and money due
to unambiguous definitions of measurement
methods

Reduce
development lead times by using standardized
metrics

Provide
a common language to reduce risk of disagreements
regarding performance

Increase
customer satisfaction by having more accurate,
reliable, and repeatable performance characterizations

Convenience:
provide all measurement procedures and
auxiliary information under a single cover

ICDM
Chair, Joe Miseli, says “The IDMS is
the first standard from the ICDM and SID.
It is a defining work for evaluating displays
and is the most comprehensive display measurement
and metrology standard yet produced. It provides
a full set of common and more specialized
display measurement procedures to characterize
display performance. It also includes new
and innovative measurements never before standardized
for characterizing modern displays, as well
as many references to clarify and expand upon
metrology foundations and techniques. It builds
upon the tremendous amount of work of many,
especially the editor-in-chief, Ed Kelley,
a former NIST physicist and one of the foremost
metrologists in the display industry today.
The IDMS is written in plain English with
abundant use of graphics and examples that
will make it simple to use and so can be widely
applied throughout the display industry. It
is all-inclusive so that everything one needs
is available in a single volume.”

Incoming
SID President, Brian Berkeley, states “SID
is proud to announce the availability of the
first release of the IDMS. This landmark standard
is the culmination of untold hours of effort
on the part of contributors representing a
broad cross-section of the display field.
The IDMS is the single most significant display
measurement standard to be released in more
than 10 years. Working under the auspices
of SID, and with the cooperation of the Video
Electronics Standards Association (VESA),
the ICDM has created a valuable standard that
truly advances display measurement science.
The IDMS will enable and promote consistency
in the characterization and reporting of critical
display performance parameters. Considering
the rapid pace of innovation and advances
in display science over the past decade, the
IDMS meets a tremendous need for the display
industry. SID congratulates and extends its
thanks to all of the ICDM members for their
profound contribution.”

The
IDMS is the follow-up to the Flat Panel Display
Measurements Standard (version 2.0) and is
used extensively by the industry since its
publication by the VESA in 2001. The IDMS
does not set performance standards, but gives
guidance about how to measure displays. This
will allow component suppliers, display manufacturers
and customers to clearly communicate, understand
and agree with the measurement and characterization
methods upon which performance standards are
based.

An
electronic version of the IDMS will be available
as a free download from the ICDM home site
at http://www.icdm-sid.org
as well as the SID website at http://www.sid.org.
A printed version will also be available for
purchase through the SID online bookstore.

ABOUT
THE ICDM
The ICDM is a part of the SID Definitions
and Standards Committee. Members of the ICDM
are some of the foremost experts in the fields
of display metrology, display engineering,
vision science, physics, optics, and color
science. The main activity of the ICDM is
the authorship and maintenance of the IDMS
document.

[visionlist] OPAM 2012: Call for submissions

******************************* OPAM 2012 
*******************************

20th Annual Workshop on Object Perception, Attention, and Memoryhttp://www.opam.net/opam2012/November 15th in Minneapolis, Minnesota Sheraton Seattle Hotel Keynote speaker: Dr. Michael Tarr, Carnegie Mellon University

******************************************************************************

The
OPAM conference is dedicated to issues in object perception, visual
attention, and visual memory.  OPAM is a forum primarily for scientists
early in their careers, such as graduate students or post-docs who do
not yet have the opportunity to present at the Psychonomic Society meeting.  It provides an
excellent opportunity to present research to a large audience mainly
drawn from the Psychonomics community.  The conference embraces a
diversity of approaches, including psychophysics, eye-tracking,
developmental psychology, and cognitive neuroscience.  Talks are
published as short conference papers in Visual Cognition, promoting the rapid dissemination of high-quality work to the academic community.
OPAM will take place immediately before the Psychonomic Society meeting and
at the same hotel.  As one of the special features of OPAM’s 20th anniversary, we are pleased to announce that Dr. Michael Tarr, the
founder of OPAM, will deliver our keynote address. 
This talk is generously sponsored by Cambridge Research Systems, who
will host a video of this lecture on their website.  We will continue
celebrating our 20th anniversary with an OPAM bash on
the evening of Friday, November 16th.  Stay tuned for further details! 

Online submissions are now open and will be accepted until July 15th, 2012:http://www.opam.net/opam2012/submissions.phpWe
will once again award $250 travel grants to three presenters based on financial need and submission quality.
Nominations are due on September 1, 2012. For more details, see:http://www.opam.net/opam2012/travel.php

***
Important note *** Thanks to the enthusiasm of the community in
presenting at OPAM, the conference has grown rapidly in recent years.  In the
event that the number of submitted abstracts exceeds our capacity
estimates, OPAM will create a waitlist and make final decisions
about acceptance of these waitlisted abstracts after we have confirmed
our allowable poster space.  In determining waitlisted submissions, we will
consider scope, status of the presenter, and submission quality.  Please
feel free to contact us if you have any questions about this process
before submitting.

Sincerely,The 2012 OPAM organizers
