Which are the aims and scope of abstracts track in ISBI?
The goal of this new track is to open up ISBI to a broader audience of imaging scientists (in particular from the biology and physics community) and to encourage cross-fertilization. Its scope is complementary to the regular track with the dual aim of: (a) stimulating future algorithmic, mathematical, and computational contributions by the traditional ISBI community, and (b) promoting the transfer of advanced algorithms to the practice of bio-imaging. Only short abstract submissions will be considered and accepted submissions will be presented as posters at the meeting, but will be neither published in the conference proceedings nor in IEEE Xplore.
Particular topics of interest for this track include: Recent developments/advances of optical, MRI, or other imaging instrumentation, imaging protocols, or biochemical tools as well as recent biological/clinical findings obtained primarily via the use of existing imaging algorithms or software tools. The Abstract Track is particularly suited for papers that discuss the role of signal and image processing approaches in applications. However, submissions that deal with technical derivations of algorithms/computational approaches are better suited for the Paper Track.

Why should you submit an abstract to ISBI?
If you are a basic biological, biomedical or clinical researcher; if your work requires access of advanced biological or biomedical imaging techniques; or if you are keen to network with experts in the image analysis domain… then perhaps you should consider submitting an abstract to ISBI 2013.
You will have the unique opportunity to meet physicists and engineering experts in image acquisition and image processing; to attend a variety of tutorials and special sessions reviewing hot topics in amenable and high-quality lectures. Why not to make the most out of this conference by drafting an abstract to ISBI where you report on your recent work and expose the challenges of your application to the biomedical imaging community? Learn from other disciplines, listen to top notch plenaries and semi-plenaries, share your imaging challenges, and establish new collaborations in a vibrant city.
