Research description: Alessandro Rizzi is Full Professor at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Milano (Italy), teaching Multimedia, Colorimetry and Film restoration. He is doing research since 1990 in the field of digital imaging with a particular interest on color, visualization, photography, HDR, VR and on the perceptual issues related to digital imaging, interfaces and lighting. He is the head of the MIPS Lab at the Department of Computer Science. He has been one of the founders of the Italian Color Group, Secretary of CIE Division 8, IS&T Fellow and Vice President. In 2015 he received the Davies medal from the Royal Photographic Society. He is co-chair of the IS&T Conference “Color Imaging: Displaying, Processing, Hardcopy and Applications”, Topical Editor for “Applied Color Science” of the Journal of Optical Society of America A, Associate Editor of Journal of Electronic Imaging, member of several program committees of conferences related to color and digital imaging, and author of about 400 scientific works.
Research interests: Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), Creative Design, Advanced Data Management, as well as studies in semantic, social and cultural aspects of information technologies with an emphasis on the application of this knowledge to interaction design.
Research description: He obtained his PhD in “Informatics” from Università degli Studi di Milano and a MSc in Computer Science from the same university. Stefano Valtolina’s research activity is directed toward the study of aspects of Human Computer Interaction and Database Management investigating methods, interactive systems, and tools for Knowledge Management and Fruition. In this context he has taken part in several national and European Projects in different applicative contexts amongst which: Valorisation and dissemination of cultural information: design of system for semantically sharing, integrating and enriching knowledge bases belonging to different museums, libraries and digital archive; Collaborative analysis and visual optimization of real objects in augmented reality environments in the context of industrial design projects; Study of models for knowledge sharing and enhancing in users community through the use of multimedia, multimodal and mobile annotation techniques; Definition of creative design processes applied in the scientific and technological problem solving based on End-User Development (EUD) and meta-design approaches in order to provide useful strategies and tools for supporting creative interactions among users coming from different domains; Design of user-centered recommendation services in the context of e-learning and e-teaching platforms, for supporting teachers by exploiting the contributions of social networks able to enhance and enrich didactic contents proposed by their members; Development of intelligent services able to provide users with a decision-making process interactively accessible and to integrate it with social and crowdsourcing analysis, and interpretations that can lead to a new and meaningful use and presentation of data in Internet of Things (IoT) contexts of use. In the context of these research lines, Stefano Valtolina has taken or is taking on the role of scientist in charge or collaborator in the context of several national and international projects.

Research interests: Creative Color and Light Design, Colorimetry, Color Perception.
Research description: Osvaldo Perrenoud started at MIPS completing an internship for the completion of the Master in CD& T, elaborating a work on the measurement of rendering and color sensation in a practical perception experiment. Currently in collaboration with Alessia Della Marra and Prof. Alessandro Rizzi makes a study to rethink the Color Rendering Index (CRI) trying to simplify it.
Curriculum Vitae: Osvaldo Perrenoud was born in 1958 and, from 1979, he works in practice with lights and colors. Throughout his career, he conceived luminoscenic and luminotechnical projects for various corporate and social events and served as Director of Photography on more than 60 musical DVDs.
He is an Honorary Member of ABRIP (Brazilian Association of Lighting Professionals) and ABIL (Brazilian Lighting Association); and member of ABrIC (Brazilian Association of Stage Lighting Designers), ABCor (Brazilian Color Association) and ProCor (ProCor do Brasil Association).
He obtained a postgraduate degree in Interior Design and Lighting from Faculdade Ávila, Brazil, in 2010, and a Master's degree in Design & Color Technology from Politecnico di Milano, Italy, in 2018.
Since 2008, he has been dedicated to giving classes and lectures in Brazil and Italy in the areas of Color and Lighting Design and Architecture and Visual Perception linked to lighting design. Full Version Website: desenhosdeluz.com.br
