TITLE: Holographic visualization: signal processing and technological 

ABSTRACT:3D visualization has received increased attention in recent 
years, significantly boosted by the advent of new AR/VR/XR display 
devices and the metaverse paradigm. However, current display solutions 
based on - for example - stereoscopic or light field representations 
still depict significant shortcomings regarding, e.g., supported viewing 
angle and eye accommodation. Using the holographic modality instead 
might bring a solution to the encountered problems. Though the term 
holography is often misused because of marketing reasons – the name is 
often linked with ideal 3D visualization solutions – real holography 
uses a wave-based light propagation model instead of the ray-based 
models used for regular 3D visualization systems.
Notwithstanding the big promises of holography and the evolution of the 
underlying supporting technologies, the challenges of bringing this 
technology to the professional and consumer markets are still huge.
This talk will focus on the challenges related to the generation, 
processing, coding, and quality assessment of holographic content in 
combination with the underlying computation, optoelectronic, optical and 
photonics hardware. In this context, also the status of JPEG Pleno, 
currently defining the first international standard for coding of 
holographic content, will be discussed.

BIO: Peter Schelkens received his degree in electronic engineering in 
VLSI-design from the Industriële Hogeschool Antwerpen- Mechelen (IHAM), 
Campus Mechelen, in 1991. After that, he obtained an electrical 
engineering degree (MSc) in applied physics (1994), a biomedical 
engineering postgraduate degree with a specialization in medical physics 
(1995), and, finally, a Ph.D. degree in applied sciences (2001) from the 
Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB).
Peter Schelkens currently holds a professorship at the Department of 
Electronics and Informatics (ETRO) at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel 
(VUB), Belgium. He is also affiliated with the Interuniversity Institute 
for Microelectronics (imec) in Leuven, Belgium, where he is currently 
active as principal investigator.
The research interests of Peter Schelkens are situated in the field of 
multidimensional signal processing encompassing the representation, 
communication, security, rendering and quality assessment of these 
signals. In 2013 he was awarded an EU ERC Consolidator Grant focusing on 
digital holography.
Peter Schelkens has published over 300 papers in journals and conference 
proceedings, and he holds several patents. His team participates in the 
ISO/IEC JTC1 /SC 29/WG 1 (JPEG) standardization activities. Since 2018, 
he has been rapporteur/chair of the JPEG Coding, Test and Quality 
Subgroup and he is actively involved in coordinating the JPEG PLENO 
standardization activity. He is currently also convenor of ISO/IEC JTC1 
/SC 29/AG 4 coordinating the collaboration between JPEG and MPEG 
Peter Schelkens is associate editor of Elsevier Signal Processing: Image 
Communication, AOP JPhys Photonics, Springer Journal of Quality and User 
Experience, and Light: Advanced Manufacturing. He has been previously 
associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video
