August 6, 2012: Abstract Submission Deadline

The deadline for submitting abstracts to the Fifth Image-Guided Therapy workshop is rapidly approaching!

The workshop is sponsored by the National Center for Image Guided Therapy (NCIGT), the Neuroimage Analysis Center (NAC) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH). It will be held on September 21, 2012 in the Joseph B. Martin Conference Center, Harvard Medical School, Boston.

The goal of this workshop is to learn about state of the art and future trends in image guided interventions. The program for this workshop includes a single track of scientific talks by thought-leaders in the field, as well as a poster session. The oral presentations will be a combination of invited talks and those selected from submitted abstracts. The posters will be selected from the abstract submissions.

The overall goal of this workshop series is to asses the current needs and opportunities in the field of image-guided interventions and NCIGT’s role as a national center in relation to the greater IGT community. Similar to previous workshops in this series, we expect attendance by the members of the academia, industry, and federal agencies interested in the field of image-guided interventions.
