We are excited to organize the fifth 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.
will be allocated a significant time 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.
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 CT imaging
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.
