XI Conferenza del Colore and workshop

XI Conferenza del Colore and workshop Optical spectroscopy for food applications:
a photonic tasting

September 9th -10th-11th, 2015 – Department of Design, Politecnico di Milano
Campus Bovisa – Via Durando 10 – 20158 Milan (Italy)

On September 10th-11th at the Department of Design of the Politecnico di Milano, the 11th

edition of the Conferenza del Colore will be held in a collaboration between the Associazione

Italiana Colore, the Politecnico di Milano , the Colour Group (GB), the Centre Français de la

Couleur and the Groupe Français de l’Imagerie Numérique Couleur.

The aim of the conference is to encourage multi and interdisciplinary aggregation of research

centres and individuals who deal with colour and light from a professional or scientific

perspective. In particular, this year we want to emphasize the role of the color in the major

themes of the Universal Exposition EXPO Milan 2015. The conference will begin (early in the

morning) with a series of tutorials on different color related topics. This will be followed by

oral presentations of the submitted and peer-revied papers.

The conference is also realized with the contribution of Konica Minolta, KolorMondo, Oikos e

X-Rite, under the patronage of AEIT (Associazione Italiana di Elettrotecnica, Elettronica,

Automazione, Informatica e Telecomunicazioni), AIAP (Associazione Italiana Progettazione

per la Comunicazione Visiva), AIAr (Associazione Italiana di Archeometria), AIDI

(Associazione Italiana di Illuminazione), EXPO Milano 2015, Federchimica Avisa

(Associazione Nazionale Vernici, Inchiostri, Sigillanti e Adesivi), GIRPR (Gruppo Italiano

Ricercatori in Pattern Recognition), IGIIC (Gruppo Italiano International Institute for

Conservation), Ordine degli Architetti, Pianificatori, Paesaggisti e Conservatori della Provincia

di Milano and SIOF (Società Italiana di Ottica e Fotonica).

Furthermore, this year the Conference will be preceded, on September 9th, by the workshop

Optical spectroscopy for food applications: a photonic tasting with the aim to present the

potentiality of the optical spectroscopy for food applications. The event, which will be held at

the Department of Design at the Politecnico di Milano, is organized in collaboration between

Associazione Italiana Colore and SIOF – Italian Society of Optics and Photonics, as part of the

XI Conference of the color, under the patronage of EXPO Milan 2015, the International Year

of Light and AISEM – Italian Association Sensors and Microsystems. The workshop aims to

provide an opportunity for discussion among researchers and professionals of different

backgrounds united by the interest on the optical spectroscopy. At the end of the workshop,

demonstrations of analysis on food will be carried out with commercial spectroscopic devices

and laboratory prototypes.
