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.

Registration is now open.

Admission to scientific sessions: $50.
Admission to opening-night dinner: $50.
Admission to closing-night cocktails: $50.

Stay in the loop!
Sign up for updates about registration, speakers, deadlines, and more.
All signal, no noise.
We will only e-mail you about the i2i workshop, and we will never spam your inbox.
