Mini-Symposium on

Computational Bioimaging and Visualization

Within the WCCM8 & ECCOMAS 2008 International Conference
(http://www.iacm-eccomascongress2008.org)
Venice, Italy, 30 June – 5 July 2008

Dear Colleague,

The use of computational procedures based on medical images to model and
visualize represented objects requires a high level of research investment,
due mainly to the strong demands of clinical partners. These procedures can
have different goals, such as shape reconstruction and visualization,
segmentation, motion and deformation analyses, registration, simulation,
etc. The main goal of this Mini-symposium is to promote the debate between
researchers involved in the related fields (Bio-medical Image Acquisition,
Analysis and Processing; Multi-scale Shape and Motion Reconstruction;
Multi-scale Modeling and Analysis; Scientific Visualization, Bio-medical
Software Libraries, Environments; etc.), in order to set the major lines of
developments for the near future.

Mini-symposium Organizers:

Joćo Manuel R.S. Tavares (tavares@fe.up.pt, FEUP, Porto Portugal)
