Discussion Forum for COVID-19 and Biomedical Imaging, a Special Session of the 2020 IEEE International Conference on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI)

Time: Tuesday, 7 April 2020 from 9:00am-12:00pm USA Central Time/UTC/GMT -5 hours


Led By: Hayit Greenspan, PhD., Tel Aviv University and ISBI 2020 Technical Program Chair

Description: With many members of the biomedical imaging community working and contributing in this space, we would like to highlight this topic through a special session and discussion during ISBI!

This session will combine several world experts who will describe their recent work related to technological solutions in medical imaging related to COVID-19. This session aims to show possible image engineering solutions to key issues facing the healthcare community in fighting this pandemic, and in managing the patient population.

Each of our experts will present, live, a 15-minute overview of his or her work and goals forward. We will hear about the organization in different countries, possible open data sources and image challenges that may be opening soon, concluding with an open panel discussion and Q&A session.

The program includes the following invited speakers (Exact time-scheduling will be advertised soon):
