Call for Papers

The IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI) is a premier interdisciplinary conference encompassing all scales of imaging in medicine and the life sciences. The 2015 meeting will continue its tradition of fostering knowledge transfer among different imaging communities and contributing to an integrative approach to biomedical imaging across all scales of observation.

ISBI is a joint initiative from the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) and the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS). The 2015 meeting will include tutorials, and a scientific program composed of plenary talks, invited special sessions, challenges, as well as oral and poster presentations of peer-reviewed papers.

High-quality papers are requested containing original contributions to mathematical, algorithmic, and computational aspects of biomedical imaging, from nano- to macro-scale. Topics of interest include image formation and reconstruction, computational and statistical image processing and analysis, dynamic imaging, visualization, image quality assessment, and physical, biological, and statistical modeling. We also encourage papers that elucidate biological processes (including molecular mechanisms) or translational ramification through integration of image-based data. Accepted 4-page regular papers will be published in the symposium proceedings and included in IEEE Xplore.

To encourage attendance by a broader audience of imaging scientists (in particular from the biology, radiology, and physics community) and offer additional opportunities for cross-fertilization, ISBI will again propose a second track featuring posters selected from 1-page abstract submissions without subsequent archival publication.

Paper format

Papers are limited to 4 pages, with an additional $200 fee for up to 1 extra page. Four pages must contain technical content, figures, and references, while the 5th page may contain only references. This is the maximum number of pages that will be accepted, including all figures, tables, and references. Any documents that exceed the 5-page limit, or that have a 5th page containing anything other than references, will be rejected.

Manuscript Submission

Manuscripts can be submitted online here.

Accepted papers MUST be presented by one of the authors in person, at the conference site, and according to the final schedule. Any paper accepted into the technical program but not presented on-site will be withdrawn from the official proceedings archived on IEEE Xplore. The presenter MUST register for the conference by the author registration deadline. Failure to register before this deadline will result in automatic withdrawal of the paper from the conference proceedings and program.

An individual can be first author of at most two paper submissions. There is no limit on individuals being co-authors of paper submissions.

At least one author on each paper MUST register at a non-student rate (i.e., a student presenter MUST register at a non-student rate IF no co-author of the presented paper is registered at a non-student rate).
