Leaflet about the Group
We have a downloadable leaflet (in PDF format, 3Mb) which gives full details, with illustrations, of our main activities. This leaflet was created for us by students at Westminster University.
The ISG is actively involved in the convening of various scientific meetings. In recent years the tendency has been to concentrate on one-day meetings with fairly tightly defined topics but residential conferences are also convened which are intended to provide a forum for imaging science in general. The IS Group also co-sponsors meetings with other organisations with similar interests, examples of recent collaborators are EFSI (European Federation for the Scientific Image), the UK Thermographic Association, the Association for High Speed Photography and Photonics, the Forensic Society and IAG (International Gelatin Association).

The Imaging Science Journal (formerly the Journal of Photographic Science) is published jointly by the RPS and Maney Publishing. The editor of this publication is ex-officio member of the Group Committee and forms a communication channel between the active scientists of the Society and the publishers. A number of members of the IS Group are also members of the Editorial Board of the ISJ and assist with the development of editorial policy as well as the peer review of submitted papers.
The Imaging Science Group oversees a forum for those RPS members who wish to engage in serious scientific and technical discussion about imaging. If you already have a user ID for the RPS forum you should be able to read and post to the forum, which you can find here:-
If you are not already registered you can still read topics on the forum but not post replies or start new posts. You can apply to register here:-
Please take a look and feel free to discuss and raise any scientific or technical topics connected with imaging.
What was at one time (until 1991) an independent Group of the RPS, the Aerospace Imaging Group (originally the Aerial Group), is now a special interest section of the IS Group although it still regularly holds its own meetings under the aegis of the Society.
The IS Group is able to nominate candidates for the various Awards of the Society. In particular, the Group has regularly nominated recipients of the most prestigious of the Awards, The Progress Medal. Mention should also be made of the Selwyn Award, which is sponsored by the Group, and is given each year in recognition of an outstanding contribution to imaging science made by someone under thirty-five years old. The other major Award for which nominations have been successfully made by the Group is the Davies Medal, which is awarded for outstanding contributions to digital imaging science. It has often been the case that the Group has successfully nominated recipients of Honorary Fellowships as well as the Fenton Medal, which is awarded for services to the Society.
With the establishment of the new Science Committee and the Imaging Scientist Qualifications Board, the routine management of the examination of candidates is not part of the remit of the IS Group. However, a number of members of the Group are also members of the Board and therefore contribute to the on-going development of the qualifications scheme.
