Paper Numbering: Proceedings of SPIE follow an e-First publication model. A unique citation identifier (CID) number is assigned to each article at the time of publication. Utilization of CIDs allows articles to be fully citable as soon as they are published online, and connects the same identifier to all online and print versions of the publication. SPIE uses a six-digit CID article numbering system structured as follows:

  • The first four digits correspond to the SPIE volume number.

  • The last two digits indicate publication order within the volume using a Base 36 numbering system employing both numerals and letters. These two-number sets start with 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B … 0Z, followed by 10-1Z, 20-2Z, etc. The CID Number appears on each page of the manuscript.


Numbers in the index correspond to the last two digits of the six-digit citation identifier (CID) article numbering system used in Proceedings of SPIE. The first four digits reflect the volume number. Base 36 numbering is employed for the last two digits and indicates the order of articles within the volume. Numbers start with 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B…0Z, followed by 10-1Z, 20-2Z, etc.

Image Reconstruction from Incomplete Data VIII was held on 11–12 August 2015. A total of 20 papers were presented.

This conference continued as those of the same name held at the SPIE Annual Meetings in San Diego in 2000, Seattle in 2002, Denver in 2004 and San Diego in 2006, 2008, 2010 and 2012. Conferences on this foundational topic of imaging and information recovery bring together researchers from a variety of different backgrounds to share their research advancements and explore underlying commonalities. Breakthroughs and insights in one application area can often have an impact on another.

SPIE has a long history of supporting meetings with this theme, originally under the auspices of the Mathematical Imaging Program. Early meetings on this subject include Applications of Mathematics in Modern Optics (Vol. 358), which was chaired by W.H. Carter in 1981 and had 29 papers presented, as well as Inverse Optics I (Vol. 413), which was edited by A. J. Devaney in 1982 and had 30 papers presented.

This year’s meeting was as stimulating as ever and maintained the diversity of topics and informal atmosphere of the previous ones. Sessions were divided into the following sessions:

  • 1. Image Recovery

  • 2. Phase Retrieval

  • 3. Inverse Scattering

  • 4. Tomography

  • 5. Imaging in Scattering Media

  • 6. Signal Recovery

In addition, there was a plenary session shared with other conferences within the Mathematical Imaging Program and presented by Thrasyvoulos Pappas from Northwestern University on the topic of texture analysis.

We had three excellent invited talks by: Joe Chen from Arizona State University on femtosecond nanocrystallography, Yitzhak Yitzhaky from Ben Gurion University on feature extraction for 3D object detection, and Kevin Webb from Purdue University on imaging fields through strongly scattering random media. As in the past, the wide variety of backgrounds of those attending and the diverse applications presented were the conference’s strength. Sharing common problems that arise in these different imaging application areas stimulated new ideas, collaborative opportunities, and multi-disciplinary research.

The chairs would like to thank the participants, authors, and program committee members for their part in making this meeting so successful. Special thanks also go to the staff at SPIE for their substantial assistance over the last year. We look forward to IRID-IX in the near future.
