Funding Information:
Ori Katz received the BSc degree in physics and mathematics and the MSc degree in applied mathematics from The Hebrew University of Jer-usalem, Israel, in 1999 and 2005, respectively, and the PhD degree in physics from The Weiz-mann Institute of Science, Israel, in 2011. His professional track includes six years of R&D and team leading outside academia. He is currently an associate professor with the Department of Applied Physics, Hebrew University of Jerusa-lem, where he leads the Advanced Imaging Lab. He studies new possibilities for imaging and sensing in complex scattering media, enabled by combining optics, acoustics, and advanced computational reconstruction. His works allow deeper and higher resolution imaging in complex media, such as biological tissues, and new possibilities for imaging and sensing with scattered light, such as non-line-of-sight imaging around corners. He is currently a program chair for ICCP’2021. He was the recipient of several prestigious awards and research grants, including the Wolf Foundation Krill Prize in 2019, The Azrieli Faculty Fellowship in 2015, The John F. Kennedy Award for Outstanding Doctoral Thesis in 2011, an ERC Starting Grant in 2015, and an ERC Consolidator Grant 2020.

Funding Information:
Yoav Y. Schechner received the BA degree in physics, the MSc degree in physics, and the PhD degree in EE from Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, in 1990, 1994, and 2000, respec-tively. He was a research scientist with Columbia University. Since 2002, he has been a faculty member at the Technion’s Viterbi Faculty of Elec-trical Engineering. He is currently the Diane and Mark Seiden chair in Science. He is also a princi-pal investigator and coordinator of the CloudCT project, funded by ERC. In 2010 and 2011, he was a visiting scientist with Caltech and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. His research interests include outdoor phenomena and all aspects of imaging. He is currently a program chair of ICCP’2021. He was the recipient of the Technion Distinguished Lecturer Award in 2020, the Best Student Paper Award at CVPR in 2017, the best paper awards at ICCP in 2013 and 2018, the Ray and Miriam Klein Research Award, the Henry Taub Prize for Academic Excellence, the Otto Schwarz Foundation Excellence Award, and the Landau Fellowship.
