The ninth IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI2012) will be held 2nd to 5th of May 2012, at the International Convention Centre in Barcelona, Spain. ISBI is a joint venture of the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) and the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS).

 ISBI is the foremost conference for researchers in medical and biological imaging. 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. Papers on all molecular, cellular, anatomical and functional imaging modalities and applications are encouraged.

 For the first time in the history of ISBI, this edition will have a double track submission system: the traditional ISBI, full-paper, review process and publication (IEEE Xplore) with poster/oral presentations (conference paper track) and a novel, abstract-based, review process with poster presentation, without subsequent archival publication (abstract track). The abstracts from both tracks will be made available to the attendees of the conference.

Deadline for submission of 4-page paper: November 13, 2011




A number of special sessions are being organized  at the ISBI 2011 meeting in Barcelona between 2nd and 5th of May. These sessions combine different contributions focused on critical and emerging topics in biomedical imaging, of interest to a relatively large audience. We expect these sessions to be a focusing opportunity at the Congress, allowing establishing synergies and eventual links to relevant communities and exploring new opportunities these can offer. The list of sessions will be announced shortly.

At this moment, and until October the 15th, we are opened to proposals from prospective organizers. Note that each of the sessions will last 1.5 hours, counting between 4 and 5 invited speakers, each of them exploring different facets of the chosen topic. Presentations will be oral, and only by invitation of the organizers.1000$ will be allocated for each Special Session to support the invitation process.

Additionally, IEEE-rate registration to the full conference or a one-day pass for the day of the special session will be offered for all speakers involved.

According to IEEE standards, also these invited contributions have to be submitted in advance and undergo peer review, which will be organized and supervised by the Chairs (proposers) of the individual special sessions. As contributions are expected of being more of an overview than presenting novel contributions, reviews should essentially focus more on quality than on novelty. The reviewing process will use the same system as the main conference and will run parallel to the main review.

If you feel interested, please submit a short proposal to Gabor Szekely and Jose-Maria Carazo ( and indicating:

  • Brief description of the proposed topic, with a justification of its relevance as a Special Session at ISBI
  • Tentative list of speakers
  • Expected audience
