The series of information below are from our previous edition (2015).
The information regarding IC3D 2016 will be posted here soon.
Stay tuned!



The "Scientific conference" is the International Conference on 3D Imaging, called, for short, IC3D (pronounced "I see 3D"). IC3D presents the latest information in 3D research and development, and provides a way to anticipate what will soon emerge from skunk-works, research laboratories. IC3D emphasizes the mid and long terms, and the limits of the possible.

The scope of IC3D is ALL aspects – scientific, engineering, mathematical,... - and ALL applications of ALL forms - stereoscopic, holographic, integral, range, audio, print, ... – of 3D.

IC3D consists in a series of presentations (oral or poster) of the papers submitted by authors and accepted after evaluation by reviewers.

The first four editions of IC3D were technically co-sponsored by the Signal Processing Society of the IEEE, the “world's largest professional association for the advancement of technology”. The corresponding conference proceedings are archived in the IEEE Xplore digital library, thereby providing maximum visibility to the authors and their papers.

We expect that IEEE will continue to technically co-sponsor IC3D and to archive the related proceedings in IEEE Xplore. We expect a decision in the spring.

IC3D is one of the main international conferences fully dedicated to all scientific and engineering facets of 3D. It is unique because of its seamless integration in an event (3D Stereo MEDIA) that also covers the artistic, technological, content, and business facets of 3D.

If 3D R&D is your cup of tea, we count on you to submit one or more papers! You may then win a "Best paper award" at our Awards ceremony! In 2013, this prize was in the form of a "Lumiere Award" of the International 3D & Advanced Imaging Society.

IC3D and the Professional Conference (PCON) occur in immediate succession, forming a continuum from the mathematical details of 3D to the best S-3D contents.

Whom for?

For anyone interested in presenting and/or discovering cutting-edge science, engineering, and research in 3D, and, thus, for scientists, engineers, academics, and researchers.

When & where?

On 14-15 December at the University of Liège. (IC3D is immediately followed by PCON.)

Congratulations to the winners of the Best Paper!
This year, there was a tie, and there were two winners:

"A distortion evaluation framework in 3D video view synthesis"
Authors: Andrei Purica, Marco Cagnazzo, Béatrice Pesquet-Popescu, Frédéric Dufaux, and Bogdan Ionescu.

"A premixed autosteroscopic OptiX-based volume rendering"
