On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we would like to extend you a warm welcome to the 20th IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging. ISBI 2023, organized jointly by the IEEE Signal Processing Society and the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, which will be held in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia, April 18-21, 2023.
For its twentieth anniversary, ISBI will take place for the first time ever in Latin America. Located on the shores of the Caribbean Sea, Cartagena de Indias brings together the charm of colonial architecture, the excitement of a vivid nightlife, fascinating cultural festivals, and lush landscapes. It is one of the most beautiful, well-preserved cities in Latin America, and has been named a "World Heritage Site" by UNESCO. The city offers visitors the opportunity to walk along its colorful streets and plazas, surrounded by 11kms of colonial city walls, which stands as one of the most complete fortifications in the Americas.
This year’s program will include five Keynotes Talks presented by world-renowned imaging scientists and clinicians: Drs. Matthew Rosen, Yakeel Quirov, Lena Maier-Hein, Samni Koyejo, and Vasilis Ntziachristos. In addition, for the first time at ISBI, we will also have two virtual keynotes in other time zones: Qi Dou and Islem Rekik. Following recent ISBIs, we will also host the fourth edition of Clinical Day, a day-long special session designed to promote the exchange of emerging knowledge of biomedical imaging in the clinical fields. Additionally, we will hold the first ever Industrial Day, in which we will hear about the latest products in our field by industry leaders, learn about the journey of medical imaging startups that have now become successful companies, and have a startup pitch competition. As in previous ISBIs, we also have an open call for Special Sessions, Challenges and Tutorials, and we look forward to your submissions.
Nos vemos en Cartagena!
