The IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI) is the premier forum for the presentation of technological advances in theoretical and applied biomedical imaging and image computing. ISBI 2012 will be the ninth meeting in this series and its 10th anniversary since the first edition.
Previous meetings have played an important role in facilitating interaction between medical and biological imaging researchers. The 2012 meeting will continue this tradition of fostering knowledge transfer between different imaging communities and contributing to an integrative approach to biomedical imaging across all scales of observation.
ISBI is a joint initiative from the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) and the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS). The 2012 meeting will open with a morning of tutorials, followed by a scientific program of plenary talks, invited special sessions and tutorials, and oral and poster presentations of peer-reviewed papers and abstracts. For the first time in the history of ISBI, this edition will have a double track submission system: the traditional ISBI, full-paper, review process and publication with poster/oral presentations customary and a novel, abstract-based, review process with poster presentation, without subsequent archival publication.
High-quality papers are requested containing original contributions to 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 structural, molecular, cellular, anatomical, and functional imaging modalities and applications are welcome.
This year’s meeting will take place in the historic and cosmopolitan city of Barcelona, in the heart of the 22@ district, the city’s new-technology and innovation hub along the Mediterranean sea.
