Dear Colleagues,

We hope you will be able to join us for the Utah CIBC Workshop
April 20-21 in SLC.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

CIBC Workshop 2006

The NIH/NCRR Center for Integrated Biomedical Computing (CIBC) is pleased
to offer a workshop for scientists and engineers interested in applications
of advanced computing to biomedicine. The goal of the workshop will be to
present and discuss state of the art tools and techniques for image
processing, modeling, simulation, and visualization in biomedical
applications of interest to attendees. The emphasis will be on technical
interchange and attendees will play an active role in shaping the future
technical capabilities of CIBC software.  We especially encourage
collaborators and potential collaborators of the Center to attend this
workshop because of its pivotal role in directing the creation of new
techniques and software.

Date:  April 20 and 21 (Thursday and Friday), 2006
Venue: Marriott City Center, Salt Lake City

Intended audience:
    Scientists and engineers with an interest in applications of image
