We are excited to organize the second venue of this conference on image
formation in x-ray computed tomography. Our main goal is to provide a
cozy forum for interactions between CT scientists and discussion of
cutting-edge CT research in medical imaging and non-destructive testing.
The meeting will be limited to an attendance of about 150 people,
and will take place in historic Fort Douglas, which was the location
for the athlete village during the 2002 Winter Olympic Games.
Oral presentations will be allocated a significant time (25 minutes) to
allow in-depth presentations and debate. These presentations will
be supplemented by comfortable poster sessions to allow further discussion
and dissemination of results. In addition to the meeting itself, scientific
interactions will be facilitated by shared meals provided in a quiet atmosphere.
We welcome submissions on all topics that are related to image formation in CT.
Ideal submissions will clearly demonstrate the impact of the investigated technology
on the CT image. Evaluations with computer simulations and real data are both
acceptable. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
Image reconstruction algorithms
Scatter and beam-hardening compensation schemes
Dose evaluation and dose reduction strategies
Image quality assessment
Breast cone-beam tomography
New data acquisition geometries
Novel CT technologies
Please feel free to contact the general chair if the suitability of your contribution
for this conference is unclear.
Fort Douglas is located adjacent to the campus of the University of Utah, and offers
breath-taking views of the Salt Lake Valley and the Wasatch mountains. Great hiking
opportunities await the visitors in beautiful canyons which are as little as a 20-minute
drive away from the conference. Also, Utah has more National Parks than any other state
in the country, offering further opportunities for sightseeing before or after the conference.
