The International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI) took place at the Clarion Congress Hotel in Prague from April 13th to 16th, 2016. ISBI is a premier peer-reviewed scientific conference dedicated to mathematical, algorithmic, and computational aspects of biomedical imaging using innovative imaging methods on humans and small animals. GUARANT International was selected as the organizer of this event due to their many years of experience, who for a quarter of a century now, have been taking care of the success of their clients by organizing international congresses and conferences in Central and Eastern Europe.
ISBI is a joint initiative of the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) and IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS). The meeting featured preconference tutorials, followed by a strong scientific program of plenary talks and special sessions as well as oral and poster presentations of peer-reviewed contributed papers. The Czech capital was visited by more than 500 experts from around the world.
Among the most anticipated speakers undoubtedly belonged Milan Šonka (Director of the Iowa Institute for Biomedical Imaging, Iowa, USA) with a lecture on Precision Medicine via Analysis of Ophtalmic 3D OCT: Relating Retinal Anatomy, Pathology and Function, Gene Myers (Director & Klaus Tschira Chair of Systems Biology, Max-Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics, Dresden, Germany) with a lecture on Computer Vision for Computational Optics, Michael Hawrylycz (Director of the data analysis and annotation efforts for the Allen Institute for Brain Science, Seattle, USA), who was speaking about spatial mapping of multimodal data in neuroscience and K. Kirk Shung (Director of the Resource Center for Medical Ultrasonic Transducer Technology, Department of Biomedical Engineering, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, USA), who gave a lecture on the topic of high frequency ultrasonic imaging.
There was also an interesting section at the congress called ‘Women in Biomedical Imaging 2016’.
A three-hour tour was also on hand for congress participants as a way of diversifying, which included Prague's historical center and interesting monuments on the UNESCO World Heritage Site.
