2016 IEEE EMBS International Summer School on Biomedical Imaging

Saint-Jacut de la Mer, Brittany, France
The 12th Edition of this Summer School is aimed at offering to the best young researchers (PhD students, Post-doctorate, Engineers from industry, Physicians) involved in biomedical imaging an exceptional opportunity to meet, discuss and learn from leading lecturers in an informal atmosphere. This intensive working week takes place in one of the most beautiful place of France, Saint-Jacut de la Mer, near the old city of Dinan.
The 2016 Lectures will be given by Tim Cootes (UK), Michael Liebling (USA), Jean-François Mangin (France), Andrew Reader (UK) and Carolina Whälby (Sweden), on topics where a very active research is conducted. A Junior lecture will be delivered by a participant to the previous School, to be selected.
The number of attendees (traditionally coming from more than 25 countries all over the world) is strictly limited (45) and applications must be submitted as early as possible (the deadline being March 12th, 2016). An international committee will select the candidates by March 15. Participants are encouraged to present their research work through Posters.
The registration fee is 900 € (Euros). It includes full teaching courses, accommodation, catering, social events (Dinan, Saint-Malo), nautical activities (sailing and kayaking) and the School book published in the IEEE-EMBS Book Series. Financial supports are currently being requested to the school sponsors (Companies, National Institutes) which will allow to offer reduced fees mainly for attendees coming from developing countries. A 100 € deposit is mandatory when submitting your candidature.
