IEEE International School of Imaging

October 16-18, 2018
In conjunction with IEEE International Conference on Imaging Systems and Techniques (IST)

IEEE is the world’s largest professional association, with nearly 500,000 members, dedicated to advancing technological innovation and excellence for the benefits of humanity. IEEE creates and promotes advancement of knowledge and world-changing technologies from computing and aerospace, to medical devices, healthcare, telemedicine, communications, sustainable energy systems, nanotechnology, robotics, and more.

The objectives of  the IEEE International School of Imaging  (I2SI)  is to explore physical, engineering, molecular, biochemical and imaging principles, aimed to the advancement and generation of new knowledge related to the design, development, and applications of imaging and spectroscopy technologies, medical diagnostics, biocomputing, pharmaco-imaging, molecular and omics technologies, remote sensing, robotics, space instrumentation, and material characterization. Engineers, scientists and medical professionals from Industry, Government, Academia, and Healthcare who want to bridge technology and clinical disciplines in the multidisciplinary areas of imaging systems, pattern recognition, image processing, biocomputing, spectroscopy and medical diagnostic device industry, are invited to attend the School and interact with major worldwide experts, aimed at advancing the science of imaging, the development of novel visualization technologies, to increase the understanding of pathophysiology and metabolism, characterize and measure therapeutic efficacy of drugs; mass-spectrometry-based-omics technologies, remote sensing, autonomous aerial and underwater vehicles, ladars, lidars, space instrumentation, semiconductor inspection, material characterization; exploring multifaceted design principles and new applications of imaging that would lead ultimately to novel devices and technologies, standards and metrology with unsurpassable image quality, scalability, reconfigurability, high throughout, and miniaturization capabilities.
