Biomedical Image & Signal Analytics

    1. TAC Name:
      Biomedical Image & Signal Analytics

    2. TAC Acronym:

    3. TAC Technical Area:
      This TAC covers a broad area of image & signal processing dedicated to biomedical applications in medicine, biology, physiology, neurosciences, genetics, and so on. These fields are driven by the availability of large amounts of signals and images with a huge variety in terms of their nature and spatial and temporal scales; data sources include microscopy, medical imaging devices, (wearable) sensors, all with an increasing degree of integration between acquisition and computation. In addition, there is a need to quantify more advanced features from this data using modeling approaches adopted from the image & signal processing community at large.

    4. TAC Motivation:
      Advanced image & signal processing has become an essential part of biomedical research in medicine, molecular biology, neurosciences,... . The BISA TAC wants to actively promote synergies at the interdisciplinary interface where advanced imaging and data processing meet with biomedical sciences. In addition to image & signal processing tailored to biomedical applications, we also want to cover the emerging field of analytics, where learning from this type of data is pursued. An increasing number of researchers in signal processing and part of the EUSIPCO community are getting exposed and engaged into biomedical projects. Therefore, the BISA TAC will actively foster the emergence of a biomedical community within EUSIPCO. We also plan to reach out to other scientific communities.

    5. TAC Planned Activities:
      A specific plan of activities: - Strengthen the biomedical activities at EURASIP in terms of workshops, tutorials, and special sessions, in particular, at EUSIPCO. Specifically, we will identify emerging topics, proposing special sessions & chairs.
      - Initiate a Best Paper Award at EUSIPCO for papers in the area of biomedical image and signal processing.
      - Encourage new special issues in the EUSIPCO journals on specific subtopics covered by our TAC.
      - Provide expertise to the EURASIP Board of Directors.
