Welcome to the Third IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI 2006), held April 6-9, 2006, at the Crystal Gateway Marriott, Arlington, Virginia, USA. With well over 600 attendees in 2004, 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.
This 2006 meeting had 45 invited talks in special sessions and 4 plenaries. Out of 549 submitted papers, 116 were accepted for oral presentation and 192 for poster presentation. There were also 45 papers in special sessions and 4 plenary talks. There were 508 attendees.
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 2006 meeting will feature an opening morning of tutorials and short courses, followed by a strong scientific program of plenary talks and special sessions as well as oral and poster presentations of peer-reviewed contributed papers.
