The next project meeting will be in Madrid, 23-25 Oct 2018.
First day will be a workshop on gloss, with the aim to provide you the last progresses in the field of gloss perception, gloss comprehension and gloss measurement.
The second day will be devoted to BiRD project progresses (Sparkle, BRDF and data files).
JTC 12 (D1/D2/D8): The measurement of Sparkle and Graininess
Div2 of CIE has validated the creation of aJoint technical committee (JTC) on sparkle, chaired by Alejandro Ferrero (CSIC, ES), and co-chaired by Youngshin Kwak (Head of CIE Div1, KR).
The term of reference of the JTC is “To provide a methodology to measure sparkle and graininess, and to develop a measurement scale. Measurands will be defined and the requirements for their measurements will be well normalized, in such a way that different instruments can provide the same spectrophotometric data from the same specimen. A psychophysical method will be recommended to obtain visual data, and its correlation with the spectrophotometric data will be worked out to develop the measurement scale for sparkle and graininess.”
If you want to joint JTC Sparkle, you are welcome.
Chair: Alejandro Ferrero (ES)
Recommendation on the geometrical parameters for the measurement of the bidirectional reflectance distribution function (BRDF)
Next meeting of TC2-85
Next meeting will be held in Eindohoven (NL) around June 12, 2018 during the Div2 annual meeting. A special emphasis will be given to polarization effect in BRDF measurements during this meeting. If you want to joint TC2-85, you are welcome. We need your support and knowledge are user of BRDF measurements, as multi-angle spectrophotometer or goniospectrophotometer manufacturer, as standard artefacts manufacturers.
We have an new industrials who jointed the group of BiRD’s stakeholders.

Bibliography about gloss, sparkle and BRDF measurement
References to literature about BRDF measurement on different surface effects, e.g. gloss, sparkle, white standards have been added to the References page.
You can either use the list with bibliografy or use the reference database about measurement of appearance attributes.
The next meeting will be at Jeju Island (Korea), between 26-28 October 2017. We will have this meeting after CIE TC2-85 meeting. Please, visit the website of CIE midterm to get more information about the whole event and to register (http://cie2017.org/). If you plan to attend only CIE TC2-85 meeting and BiRD meeting, you should register only for “Division/TC Meetings Delegate” (see http://cie2017.org/registration.php)
The kick-off meeting has been held at CNAM, in La Plaine St Denis (France), 4-5 May. This meeting was restricted to the consortium. Objectives and activities of the project have been reviewed and agreed by partners.
