Annonce de la conférence FIMH 2023

FIMH is a biennial scientific event that  aims to integrate the state of the art research and novel development efforts in the fields of cardiovascular imaging, image analysis and heart modeling.

The 12th edition will be held from June 19-22, 2023 in Lyon, France.

It will be a particularly exciting return to this location, 20 years after the second edition of the conference in 2003. Lyon and its surroundings are an area of scientific excellence in Health, with a particularly dynamic ecosystem of renowned companies and academic and clinical institutions, as well as an outstanding city with great historical and architectural heritage, and awesome French gastronomy, among other highlights.

Please note that the conference will be onsite; there will not be a synchronized hybrid event. However, in a concern for ecology, we wish to allow remote people who would prefer not to travel by plane to follow the conference in a virtual assynchronous mode. To this end, sessions will be recordered for  online access at a special price.

The main conference will consist of 3 days of scientific presentations and discussions, including four keynote lectures by renowned scientists in the field, as well as oral presentations and poster sessions by participants.

Workshops will be held on the day before the main conference (June 19th) and on the last afternoon (June 22nd).

Accepted papers will be published by Springer in the LNCS book series.

Call for papers

We solicit original contributions (8-pages articles in LNCS format) related, but not limited to:

  • anatomical and functional cardiac imaging methods, and associated novel image analysis tools;
  • anatomical, statistical, physical and physiological modeling of the heart;
  • computer aided diagnosis, surgery, robotics and image-guided therapy;
  • simulation tools and resources for cardiac modeling, as well as experimental validation studies;
  • preclinical/clinical imaging and modeling studies related to foetal, pediatric and adult heart disease.

Presenters of selected papers who cannot travel will be allowed to send a recorded version of their presentation, but will be asked to connect remotely for a live discussion just after their presentation. Nevertheless, we encourage that one researcher from their group can be onsite to prevent any connection and  presentation issues.
