Plenary Talk at SPIE Optics and Photonics, Aug 27, 2013

I have been invited to give a plenary talk at SPIE Optics and Photonics in the Engineering Optics and Applications session.  The title of the talk is "Trends and Challenges in Open Source Software."

Abstract: Over the past decade, the field of medical image analysis research has undergone a rapid evolution. It was a collection of disconnected efforts that were burdened by mundane coding and file I/O tasks. It is now a collaborative community that has embraced open-source software as a shared foundation, reducing code redundancy and I/O burdens, promoting replicable research, and accelerating the pace of research and product development. This talk will review the history and current state of open-source software in medical image analysis research, will discuss the role of intellectual property in research, and will present emerging trends and technologies relevant to the growing importance of open-source software.

Kitware is hiring, and we are always looking for new collaborators for grant proposals.  Meet with me after my talk if you are interested.
