University of Westminster, with the co-operation of the Imaging Science Group of the Royal Photographic Society

All About Imaging is a one-day event, aiming to bring academics and professionals who work in imaging science and related areas, or use imaging as part of their profession, to discuss their work, research and development and present case studies to colleagues, students and the general public. The symposium aims to create opportunities for knowledge exchange and collaborations and bring students and younger audiences to appreciate the diversity of areas that require expertise in imaging. It is aimed primarily to Westminster students studying photography and imaging, but is also open to all University staff and students, as well as invited prospective students and members of the Royal Photographic Society.
