6th the Eurographics Workshop on Visual Computing for Biology and Medicine 10th MedViz Conference


MedViz & EG VCBM - final remarks
The joint MedViz & EG VCBM event took place in Bergen, Norway, from Sept. 7-9, and we are looking back at great days with many interesting presentations (full and short papers, posters, abstracts, and invited talks) and related discussions. About 145 participants from medicine as well as from enabling technologies transformed the conference into a vivid and inspiring meeting.

[2.] Scientifically, your submissions will make a nice program! Financially, we are glad that the Norwegian Research Council decided to support VCBM 2016 with a helpful conference support grant - thank you, NFR, for this support!

[3.] Last week, we have invited the members of the IPC (International Program Committee) and we expect to publish the full list in January. Also a first Call for Papers will come out soon.
