I Want to Be A Patron

On behalf of the General Chairs, Mathews Jacob and Jong Chul Ye, and the Program Chairs, Michael Liebling and Hayit Greenspan, we would like to thank you for your kind consideration for your interest in supporting the upcoming IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging 2020. ISBI is a premier peer-reviewed conference on biomedical imaging covering of the full spectrum of imaging modalities. In 2020, ISBI will take place from April 3rd to 7th in Iowa City, Iowa, USA.


Your support will be extremely valuable.

The gracious support from ISBI sponsors enables ISBI to provide reduced registration fees, offer free coffee breaks and a free welcome reception, invite world leaders to give keynote presentations or participate in special-topic sessions, and provide student best-paper awards and travel grants. We need your help to achieve this.

ISBI is IEEE’s flagship conference on medical and biological imaging, with a large scope that covers image acquisition, formation, and processing. Each year, it attracts about 800 researchers from academia, clinics and hospitals, as well as industrial R&D departments, giving an excellent publicity opportunity for its sponsors. Top leaders from the whole world are regular attendees, as illustrated by the composition of the organizing committee. These leaders are regularly consulted by their home institutions (e.g. a university hospital or medical center) for purchasing of new equipment.

ISBI 2020 will emphasize clinical translation of biomedical imaging into healthcare applications through a special day-long session called “Clinical Day” to attract an increasing number of clinicians to ISBI and nurture multi-disciplinary interactions between clinicians and imaging scientists. The Clinical Day will offer educational credits to attendants and will feature prominent clinician-speakers.

ISBI is also the leading conference where novel and emerging bio-imaging modalities at all scales are introduced to image analysis and quantification. Examples include special sessions that were organized in recent editions of ISBI on the following topics: photoacoustic and optoacoustic tomography, single molecule microscopy, super-resolution and compressed-sensing MRI, low-radiation and phase X-ray imaging, computeraided histopathology, ultrafast ultrasound, and non-invasive bioelectric imaging.

The conference provides a terrific opportunity to get young researchers interested in your company and discuss future career opportunities. Please let us know if you would like to discuss specific opportunities with us, including demos, career fairs and networking, social or other special events. We can channel your donation to student travel grants and other student activities if you prefer. In addition, ISBI awards several best student paper awards; sponsorship of awards will be recognized during the conference, and we will invite the sponsor to present the award.


ISBI 2020 will also feature a stellar list of speakers.

Our speakers are world leaders in biomedical imaging and clinical applications. Our pre-confirmed speakers include:

  • Kyle Myers, FDA
  • Michael Abramoff, University of Iowa (AI and Ophthalmologic Imaging)
  • John Condeelis, Albert Einstein College of Medicine

Please let us know if your organization is interested in supporting the travel of our speakers or if you are interested in other opportunities for sponsored talks and/or sessions or panel discussions with clinical and scientific leaders.

Sponsors are acknowledged in the conference program book (distributed to all attendees) and on the website where sponsors’ logos will appear as soon as the support is confirmed and listed with respect to the donation amounts and sign-up dates.
