Call
2006 IEEE International Symposium on

BIOMEDICAL IMAGING: FROM NANO TO MACRO
PAPER SUBMISSION DEADLINE: NOVEMBER 1, 2005



We invite you to participate in the Third IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI 2006), to be held April 6-9, 2006, at the Crystal Gateway Marriott, Arlington, Virginia, USA. This meeting continues to play a leading role in facilitating interaction between researchers in medical and biological imaging. Fostering cross- fertilization between different imaging communities, it aims to contribute to an integrative approach to biomedical imaging across all scales of observation.

ISBI is a joint initiative of the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) and the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS), in cooperation with the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bio-engineering (NIBIB). The meeting will feature an opening morning of tutorials and short courses, followed by an exciting scientific program of plenary talks and special sessions as well as oral and poster presentations of peer-reviewed contributed papers.

High-quality papers are solicited containing original contributions to the mathematical, algorithmic and computational aspects of biomedical imaging, from nano- to macro-scale. Four-page papers should be submitted using the online submission system on the ISBI\'06 website. All papers will be reviewed. Accepted papers will be published in the CD-ROM proceedings distributed at the symposium and will afterwards also be made available online through the IEEE-Xplore database.
Contributions are solicited in the following areas:

METHODS
Image restoration, enhancement, segmentation, classification, registration, fusion, storage and retrieval, quality assessment, coding, compression; tomographic reconstruction; sampling and interpolation; multiresolution methods; tensor and vector field analysis; color and multispectral processing; image sequence processing; motion detection and analysis; texture segmentation and analysis; neural, adaptive, and fuzzy methods; probabilistic and statistical methods; monte carlo methods; random field methods; partial differential equations; active contours; level sets; atlas-based methods; deformable models; mathematical morphology; visualization.
