This conference has been withdrawn from the 2020 conference schedule
As you are aware, coronavirus is having a global impact and the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control have instituted recommendations that include social distancing and cancelling conferences and large gatherings. Since safety of our attendees is always GRC's highest priority, the GRC Board of Trustees has decided to withdraw this conference and it will be rescheduled for 2022. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution and to alleviate the concerns of our conference communities that are scheduled to meet in this timeframe.
The ongoing revolution in imaging technologies provides society with a plethora of opportunities for collecting information contributing to a better understanding of the origin and progression of disease, the geophysical parameters that affect climate, the evolution of stars and planets, as well as the organization of transportation and industrial production. These imaging techniques take advantage of radiation from Megahertz to Gamma rays to explore objects that vary from single molecules to galaxies.
While the applications requiring imaging technologies are extensive and pervasive, the fundamental common principles share striking similarities that define Image Science: from sources to detectors, from contrast mechanisms to processing, from system models to propagation media, and from prior knowledge to the extraction of meaningful information. Another common aspect of modern imaging techniques relates the massive data sets generated and the emerging application of artificial intelligence to process them.
The 2020 Image Science Gordon Research Conference will provide a unique venue for scientists working in diverse areas to share their latest research and insights on these emergent areas common to Image Science.
All attendees are invited to submit abstracts on their work to be presented in several sessions during this 5-day conference. Significant financial support will be provided to qualified attendees to provide opportunities for young investigators and students and to encourage a diverse participation of image scientists.
