September 14, 2007 -- Munich. In light of the 15th anniversary of the International Color Consortium [ICC], Fogra Graphic Technology Research Association organizes on the 21st and 22nd of February 2008 a Colour Management Symposium in Munich, Germany.
Both leading colour imaging scientists and distinguished experts will report in more than 20 talks about the latest developments and features in the area of colour management. Hereby, the focus lies in methods for capturing, colour transformation and hard/softcopy output in the so-called RGB-workflow. Practical demonstrations will be held simultaneously to supplement this topic in the general exhibition. In addition, a separate exhibition, focussing specifically on soft proofing solutions ranging from the working desk to the control station, will enrich the programme.
Attendees will also profit from the five 90 minute tutorials in German language, which will provide advice on how to learn the best practices with respect to colour imaging in PDF and DTP workflows.
New technologies, such as media-independent workflows, throw new challenges in the direction of future ICC colour management. This Fogra symposium will establish a platform to address these and forthcoming challenges.
The history of Fogra’s DTP symposia and the ICC in short: In 1993, leading colour management experts met at the Fogra symposium “Advances in Computer Publishing”. They were aiming for a standardized way of transforming colour in a world of proprietory and mutually incompatible solutions. The resulting ICC colour management is the well known de-facto standard in the graphic arts industry.
