ISBI 2013, held recently in San Francisco, CA USA, brought together world experts on Biomedical Imaging in a wide range of events. See “New Methods Explored at Tenth IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI’13)” for an interesting account of the scope and goals of this important event in the IEEE calendar.
One very interesting event in particular at ISBI 2013, the Grand Challenges contest, is described in an article, “Grand Challenges at ISBI”.
A contest is also held for Best Student Paper. We feature articles based on two of the award winners: “Development of the “rich club” in brain connectivity networks” and “A Unified Longitudinal Shape Analysis Framework for Computational Anatomy”. We hope you will find these two articles of great interest.
