International Summer Course on Medical Imaging using Bio-inspired and Soft Computing
The ECSC coordinates the 7FP Marie Curie Initial Training Network "Medical Imaging using Bio-inspired and Soft Computing" (www.mibisoc-itn.eu) . This network aims to create a multidisciplinary training programme where 16 enrolled early-stage researchers (ESRs) are exposed to a wide variety of Bio-Inspired (BC) and Soft Computing (SC) techniques, and to the challenge of applying them in the development of flexible application-oriented solutions to current Medical Imaging (MI) problems.
The MIBISOC partnership consists of world-wide recognized researchers from 8 scientific institutions (ECSC, Ghent University, Université Libre de Bruxelles, University of Nottingham, Università degli Studi di Parma, University of Granada, Henesis, and Universitätsklinikum Freiburg), and 4 high quality technical partners (General Electrics Healthcare, CNRS, Hospital Central de Asturias, and Treelogic).
Within this training programme a first technical course is organized in July 2011. It is focused on SC and BC-based intelligent system design to solve real-world MI problems. A detailed summary of real-world applications will be taught by outstanding experts, including topics such as image reconstruction in MI modalities, filtering and processing of medical images, segmentation and feature extraction in MI, range and multimodal image registration.
It will be held in the facilities of the European Centre for Soft Computing in Mieres, Spain, in July 4-8th, 2011.
