Xerox Scientist Elected President Of Inter-Society Color Council

Press release from the issuing company

ROCHESTER, N.Y., May 15, 2006 – Xerox Corporation’s Robert R. Buckley has taken the helm of the Inter-Society Color Council for a two-year term as president. The oldest professional organization dedicated to advancing knowledge of color as it relates to art, science and industry, the council is celebrating its 75 th anniversary this year. Buckley took office at the council’s annual meeting May 14 in Ottawa. The ISCC represents both individual members, companies and organizations concerned with color science and engineering in fields as diverse as textiles, paint, plastics, printing inks, graphic arts, displays and digital imaging. Its 17 member organizations come from science, commerce and industry, and its individual members range from chemists to imaging scientists and from gemologists to art preservationists. “The ISCC is a unique organization that brings together an interesting mix of people from industrial, scientific and artistic environments who want to talk about color in all its aspects,” Buckley said. “It is a natural interest for Xerox because color is an area where the company has deep expertise and is devoting substantial research, engineering and marketing resources. Our scientists are active in communities that form around color and are passionate about it, as is the ISCC.” Buckley brings to the society a wealth of experience with color and a background of leadership. A research fellow with Xerox’s Imaging and Services Technology Center in Webster, N.Y., he has worked in all aspects of color image processing including color data interchange, color printing and color standards. He has been at Xerox since 1981. He has been deeply involved in the development of industry standards, and he co-chaired and developed the concept for the Society for Imaging Science & Technology’s first two archiving conferences, which drew a diverse audience from industry, academia and cultural institutions. He has served as the ISCC’s president-elect for the past two years. Buckley received a bachelor of science degree in electrical engineering from the University of New Brunswick; a master of arts degree in psychology and physiology from the University of Oxford, which he attended as a Rhodes Scholar; and a doctorate in electrical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is a resident of Penfield, N.Y. Xerox Corporation conducts work in color science, computing, digital imaging, work practices, electromechanical systems, novel materials, and other disciplines connected to Xerox's expertise in printing and document management. The company consistently builds its inventions into business by embedding them in Xerox products and solutions, using them as the foundation for new business, or licensing or selling them to other entities.
