Following the footsteps of EG EuroVis 2020 and EG VCBM 2020, IEEE VIS will also be fully virtual and free for attendees and held 25-30 October 2020. The preliminary program is available here. While we can always expect several medical visualization paper and in some years even dedicated biomedical visualization sessions, there are already several talks and events announced to look forward to:
- The keynote by Mario Capecchi, who has won a Nobel prize for his work on genetics, will emphasize the need for collaboration in scientific investigation.
- Christina Gillman, Thomas Wischgoll, and myself are organizing an Application Spotlight entitled “Recent Challenges in Medical Visualization” with three renowned speakers:
- While the panel ‘Why should I stay in Academia? Bridging Generations of Researchers in Visualization‘ is not strictly focused on medical visualization, the organizers Renata Raidou and Ingrid Hotz themselves certainly are 🙂
- VisInPractice features several biomedical components this year, including talks on machine learning for medicine and visualizing molecules.
Hope to see some of you at virtual IEEE VIS this year! Don’t forget to register here! Have you spotted other medvis-related content to look forward to? Please mention it in the comments!
