CIE Division 8 and the Philosopher's Stone
  DOI :  10.2352/CIC.2002.10.1.art00011  Published OnlineJanuary 2002

The work of a CIE Division 8 may be compared to the labors of an alchemist. Alchemists tried to combine the four elements: earth, air, fire, and water to create the Philosopher's Stone, which was a substance that would bring wealth, health, and power. Division 8 is struggling to combine color practice, color science, color engineering, and color standards. The progress of each of the six technical committees (TCs) in CIE Division 8 is presented. Four of the five original TCs will present technical reports by 2003. Two of the TCs will then be closed. The TCs have succeeded by finding the appropriate blend of these four elements.
