Interest in biomedical imaging research is growing in Malaysia. In most universities in Malaysia, there are research groups working in this very interesting and diversified field, be it on structural imaging, functional imaging, digital pathology, or 3D modeling. Due to this, we are planning for a winter school that touches on the recent advances in biomedical imaging, delivered by prominent national and international speakers.

The 5-day program will cover all aspects of biomedical imaging, from basic topics such as PACS/DICOM, image registration, structural imaging, functional imaging and 3D modeling, to advanced topics such as fusion imaging, digital pathology, image-guided procedures, deep learning and big data in biomedical imaging. For each topic, recent advances in their domain will be the main focus. Besides the regular lecture session, there will also be a dedicated session to meet local radiologists, a poster session for partcipants to showcase their current work, a forum among the speakers to discuss a particular topic of interests, and last but not least, a session on how to write a good biomedical imaging article.

At the end of the school participants will be exposed to the fundamental and advanced knowledge in the broad field of biomedical imaging. Participants would be able to create better solutions and explore greater perspectives in their domains of interest within this growing field of research.
The IEEE SPS Winter School 2016/2017 was a great success !
The committee would like to thank all the speakers, IJN, the poster presenters, the participants and all those who made it such a fruitful & beneficial experience. See you at future workshops ...
