i2i workshop 2018


i2i workshop: October 18-19, 2018, New York City.

You're invited!

This fall, experts from academia, industry, and tech will again come together in New York to share what's new and what's next for biomedical imaging. Join us to discuss latest breakthroughs in visionary hardware, and to learn about paradigm-shifting technologies in imaging software, image-guided therapy, and image analysis.

Thank you to all presenters and attendees for a great meeting!
Most of the talks and posters will be added to this page soon.
