We believe that Image Science has been playing, and will continue to play a central role in science and industry in the coming decades. So far, image science has been invaluable to the success and development of a broad range of domains such as medicine, astronomy, biochemistry and geology. A number of recent scientific breakthroughs, from the important advances on cancer diagnosis and treatment to the first detection of gravitational waves, were achieved thanks to imaging technologies.
Currently, imaging deeper, faster and precisely are some of the most important challenges that researchers face – and those will be the focus of this year’s meeting. Sharing recent discoveries and new insights with people from your field of expertise is a key step in the research process to overcome such challenges.
For the first time, the Gordon Research Seminar in Image Science will bring together young scientists of the Image Science community to meet, discuss and share their ideas in a friendly and inspiring atmosphere. During two consecutive days, young researchers coming from different areas – optics, acoustics, computer science, X-rays, electrical engineering, chemistry – will have the opportunity to present cutting-edge research through poster presentations and contributed talks. This year a special effort is made to involve actors from academics but also from industry and administration. A panel session with representatives from the imaging industry (SuperSonicImagine), governmental agencies (Food and Drug Administration) and academics will take place during the conference.
If you want to share your passion, exchange your ideas and have fun with other young scientists, submit your work and join us for the 2018 Image Science GRS!
The Gordon Research Seminar in Image Science is organized in conjunction with the Gordon Research Conference (GRC) in Image science, which takes place the week directly following the GRS, and to which all GRS applicants are also invited to apply.
The seminar will feature approximately 10 talks and 2 poster sessions. All attendees are expected to actively participate in the GRS, either by giving an oral presentation or presenting a poster. Therefore, all applications must include an abstract.
The seminar chair will select speakers from abstracts submitted by March 16, 2018. Those applicants who are not chosen for talks and those who apply after the deadline to be considered for an oral presentation will be expected to present a poster. In order to participate, you must submit an application by the date indicated in the Application Information section above.
Gordon Research Seminars are 2-day meetings which take place on the Saturday and Sunday just prior to the start of the associated GRC. The GRS opens with a 1-hour introductory session on Saturday afternoon, followed by a poster session, dinner and a 2-hour session in the evening. Sunday morning begins with breakfast and is followed by another 2-hour session, a second poster session, and lunch. A final 1-hour session takes place just after lunch, and the associated GRC begins later that evening.
