Society for Imaging Science and Technology
The Society for Imaging Science and Technology (IS&T) is a professional society (a type of research and education organization) in the field of Photography. Founded in 1947 as the Society of Photographic Scientists and Engineers (SPSE), it is headquartered in Washington, D.C.. In 2006 it had about 1,500 members worldwide, and 5,000 participants in its various technical and industry-related programs.
IS&T is perhaps best known for its technical conferences and courses on various aspects of imaging science, including digital imaging, digital printing, color imaging, photofinishing, archiving, and digital fabrication. The society publishes The Journal of Imaging Science and Technology and, in collaboration with SPIE, The Journal of Electronic Imaging.
