2010 IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI)

To be held 14-17 April 2010, Rotterdam, The Netherlands

Four-page paper submission deadline: 2 November 2009 !!!

NEW: Best Student Paper Awards (see below)

See http://www.biomedicalimaging.org/ for details

The IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI) is the premier forum for the presentation of technological advances in theoretical and applied biomedical imaging. ISBI 2010 will be the seventh meeting in this series. The previous meetings have played a leading role in facilitating interaction between researchers in medical and biological imaging. The 2010 meeting will continue this tradition of fostering crossfertilization among different imaging communities and contributing to an integrative approach to biomedical imaging across all scales of observation.

ISBI is a joint initiative of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS) and the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS). The 2010 meeting will feature an opening morning of tutorials, followed by a scientific program of plenary talks, special sessions, and oral and poster presentations of peer-reviewed contributed papers.

Confirmed plenaries: New clinical imaging technologies (Richard Ehman); Challenges in bioimage informatics (Jason Swedlow); Molecular imaging and applications (Clemens Lowik); Challenges in biomedical image analysis (Milan Sonka). Special Sessions: fMRI & DTI (Carl-Fredrik Westin); High-field clinical MRI (Andrew Webb); Fluorescence guided surgery (Vasilis Ntziachristos); Whole-body imaging and analysis (Faiza Admiraal); Histological and intravital microscopy (Tom Vercauteren); Ultrasound imaging and analysis (Hans Bosch); Multi-parameter biomedical optical imaging and analysis (Atam Dhawan and Metin Gurcan); Computer aided diagnosis (Nico Karssemeijer). Tutorials: Biomedical image registration (Gustavo Rohde and Graeme Penney); Optical microscopy and deconvolution (Hans van der Voort and Erik Manders); Ultrasound imaging and therapeutics (Elisa Konofagou and Constantin Coussios); Machine learning for biomedical image analysis (Marco Loog and David Tax).

Contributed Program:

High-quality papers are solicited describing original contributions to the mathematical, algorithmic, and computational aspects of biomedical imaging, from nano- to macro-scale. Topics of interest include image formation and reconstruction, computational and statistical image processing and analysis, dynamic imaging, visualization, image quality assessment, and physical, biological, and statistical modeling. Papers on molecular, cellular, anatomical, and functional imaging modalities and applications are welcomed. All accepted papers will be published in the proceedings of the symposium and will be available online through the IEEE Xplore database.

Best Student Paper Awards:

ISBI 2010 awards a prize for best student paper, as judged by a special award committee. At most three papers will be awarded a prize of 500 euro each. A paper is eligible if the primary author is a student at the time of paper submission and this person will indeed present the paper at the symposium if it is accepted.

Important Dates:

Deadline for submission of 4-page paper: November 2, 2009 Notification of acceptance/rejection: January 15, 2010 Submission of final accepted 4-page paper: February 15, 2010 Deadline for author registration: February 15, 2010 Deadline for early registration: March 1, 2010
