Activity Report from Bio Imaging and Signal Processing (BISP) Technical Committee

by Christopher Wyatt (BISP TC Liaison to E-Newsletter)


The BioImaging and Signal Processing (BISP) Technical Committee (TC) of the IEEE Signal Processing Society (IEEE-SPS) promotes activities within the broad technical areas of biomedical and biological signal and image processing. Specific fields of interest include (but are not limited to): molecular and medical imaging, microscopy, signal processing in computational biology and biological networks, signal processing of physiological signals, and bioinformatics.

The BISP TC asks you to mark your calendars for the 36th International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing (ICASSP), to be held in Prague, Czech Republic, on May 22-27, 2011. See <> for more information.  ICASSP is the largest technical conference focused on signal processing and its applications, including those in biomedicine.

The BISP TC is cosponsoring (with the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society) the annual International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI).  The next ISBI (2011) meeting will be held in Chicago, Illinois, USA  on 20-23 April 2011 and will continue the tradition of fostering cross-fertilization among different imaging communities and contributing to an integrative approach to biomedical imaging across all scales of observation.

An upcoming workshop of interest is the International Workshop on Pattern Recognition in NeuroImaging, to be held May 16-18, 2011 in Seoul, Korea. See for details.

The BISP TC recently conducted its annual elections. A total of 17 new or returning members were elected: Elsa Angelini,Scott Acton, Deniz Erdogmus, Boudewijn Lelieveldt, Maria Arrate Muñoz Barrutia, Jens Rittscher, Gustavo Rohde, Badrinath Roysam, João Sanches, Yongyi Yang, Til Aach, Silvana Dellepiane, Alejandro Frangi, W. Clem Karl, Jelena Kovacˇevic ́, Jean-Christophe Olivo-Marin, and Françoise Peyrin. There were five new associate members elected: Jovan Brankov, Alexandre Dufour, Justin Haldar, Hanchuan Peng, and Frederic Precioso. Dimitri Van De Ville was elected vice-chair.
