Guidelines for Oral Presentations

The speaking time is 10 minutes, and 5 minutes for questions. The talk should cater to non-experts who are interested in learning about the big picture goal of your work (technology-wise, disease-wise) and then into the specifics of the project. Please plan to deliver the presentation using your own laptop computer.

Guidelines for Poster Presentations

The posters should be prepared in an electronic format of the authors’  choice, and presented using individual laptops at the meeting. A suggested format is a slide presentation with 5-10 slides that the presenter can cycle through in 10 minutes to a small group of people. Please ensure that the presentation laptops are fully charged at the start of the session because there will be no power outlets at the tables.

Call for Abstracts

Abstract submissions are solicited for the 9th National Image-Guided Therapy workshop, a translational research workshop that brings together NIH funded researchers in areas of image-guided surgery, interventional radiology, adaptive radiation therapy, image-guided drug delivery, image-guided robotics, and imaging informatics.
