Call for participation

2015 IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) Summer School on Biomedical Image Processing and Analysis (SSBIPA 2015)
Dubrovnik, June 13-19, 2015



The Summer School is organized by the University of Zagreb from June 13-19, 2015 in wonderful and unique Dubrovnik, Croatia, also known as "The Pearl of the Adriatic". In its heyday, it was a bustling, flourishing city protected by its mighty defensive walls. This unique medieval setting has been preserved and was inscribed on UNESCO World Heritage List in 1979.

The main topic addressed by the seasonal school is biomedical image processing and analysis. The topics covered will include medical imaging techniques, image processing methods, image analysis methods, and applications to specific medical image analysis problems. The school is targeted towards doctoral students doing research in the area of biomedical image processing and analysis and practitioners in the area. The Summer School program will include a poster session giving students an opportunity to present and discuss their research results.

The venue is the Center for Advanced Academic Studies in Dubrovnik, which is located in a nice historical building managed by the University of Zagreb, Croatia. The Center is in vicinity (5 minutes walking distance) from the famous Dubrovnik Old Town (UNESCO World Heritage Site). The Center is a popular venue for organization of various international events such as workshops and summer schools. As a top tourist destination Dubrovnik has excellent connection with frequent flights from/to many countries in Europe and overseas. The airport is located approximately 20km from Dubrovnik and there is a regular airport shuttle bus to the center of Dubrovnik, so it is very easy to reach.


The Center for Advanced Academic Studies (CAAS) in Dubrovnik includes a well-maintained dormitory for guests, which is located in the same building. A pool of double rooms has been reserved for the summer school participants.
