December 16 & 17: Nouvelles Imageries - days in tribute to Christian Barillot

Submitted on 26/11/2020

In our digital world, information sciences play a leading role in a number of areas, particularly in the field of healthcare.

To give just a few examples:

  • Tomorrow's medicine will rely on data science to analyze masses of heterogeneous data on pathologies, patients, genomics, etc. in order to propose a personalized, preventive, predictive and participatory approach;
  • Robotics becomes a precious help for the surgeon, exoskeletons are protective devices for re-education, handicap or risk prevention in manual jobs;
  • Classical medical imaging (EEG, IRM, ultrasound) as well as classical biological imaging (fluorescence microscopy, electron microscopy) is regularly enriched with new, more precise, faster techniques moving towards 3D or 4D imaging.

Obviously, the development of these new approaches requires multidisciplinary research work involving researchers in information sciences, biological and medical sciences.

INS2I had targeted its 2019 thematic year on the theme of "Information Sciences and Health", and had entrusted its management to a joint CNRS-Inserm committee headed by Christian Barillot (IRISA, Rennes) and Christian Jutten (INS2I and Gipsa-Lab, Grenoble). Several scientific days illustrating some of the facets of this subject were defined, including this Nouvelles Imageries day, initially scheduled for December 2019 and twice postponed. In the meantime Christian Barillot unfortunately left us.
Christian Barillot, a CNRS research director with an exceptional class, was an internationally recognized researcher in medical image processing. His work is a remarkable example of successful interdisciplinary research, combining innovative statistical approaches, efficient algorithmic developments and transfer to clinical practice. This has opened new avenues to accompany the explosion in the quantity of multimodal and multidimensional medical images, and to help physicians interpret and exploit them. It is natural to dedicate this scientific day to him and to pay tribute to him with presentations on his work by his collaborators.

This day focused on "New Imagery" is organized by Laure Blanc-Féraud (I3S, Nice), Hervé Liebgott (CREATIS, Lyon), Emmanuel Caruyer (IRISA, Inria, CNRS, Université de Rennes) in collaboration with Institut des Sciences de l'Information et de leurs Interactions, (INS2I) du CNRS, in the support of Institut national des Sciences Appliquées de Lyon (INSA),  Centre de Recherche en Acquisition et Traitement d'Images pour la Santé (CREATIS - CNRS/Inserm/Université de Lyon/INSA Lyon), laboratoire Informatique, Signaux et Systèmes de Sophia-Antipolis (I3S - CNRS/Inria/Université Nice Sophia-Antipolis) and Institut de recherche en informatique et systèmes aléatoires (IRISA - CNRS/ENS Rennes/Inria/INSA Rennes/IMT Atlantique/Université de Bretagne-Sud/ Université de Rennes 1).

Registration is free but required before December 14th to receive the conference broadcast link.
