We are pleased to announce the two keynote speakers for VCBM 2015.
Professor Denis Noble CBE FRS FRCP will deliver a keynote talk on “”What is Life? A systems biology perspective”. Professor Noble held the Burdon Sanderson Chair of Cardiovascular Physiology at the University of Oxford from 1984 to 2004 and was appointed Professor Emeritus and co-Director of Computational Physiology. He is one of the pioneers of System Biology and developed the first viable mathematical model of the working heart in 1960.
Our second speaker is Stéphane Cotin, Research Director at Inria and Head of the SHACRA team. His research interests are in biomechanical modeling, real-time simulation, and physics-based modeling. He specializes in medical applications, from training to planning of complex medical procedures.
Organisation for VCBM 2015 is now gaining pace. Keep checking the web page for the latest news. The Call for Papers will be issued soon.
We are looking forward to seeing you in the UK in 2015!
During his closing remarks, Ivan Viola already let attendees know about the next EG Workshop on Visual Computing for Biology and Medicine – now some more details have been worked out, and it is time to spread the word!
The programme chairs will be Nigel W. John, Lars Linsen and Katja Buehler, local organisation chairs will be Franck Vidal, Nick Avis and Nigel W. John. The workshop will be taking place on September 14-15. The venue will be in Chester.
Of course our twitter account @VCBM_2014 will keep you up-to-date, too.
Best Paper at VCBM 2014
After reading a selection of the five best best rated accepted papers and their reviews, watching their presentations, and then reviewing the papers again, the Best Paper Committee (Charles Hansen, Bernhard Kainz and Nigel W. John) agreed on one paper to be awarded with the NVIDIA Best Paper Award, and two other papers to be awarded with an honorable mention.
Details (and soon, pictures) can be found here.
Aims and Scope
The Eurographics Workshop on Visual Computing for Biology and Medicine (EG VCBM) is addressing state-of-the-art visual computing research with a strong focus on applications in biology and medicine. EG VCBM is unique, as it provides a highly interdisciplinary forum for experts from computer graphics, visualization, computer vision, visual analytics, human computer interfaces and end users from biology and medicine jointly working on next generation visual computing solutions for healthcare and the biotechnology sector.
