WMIC 2012 / EMIM 2012

 

Date: 5 to 8 September 2012

Venue: Dublin, Ireland

The Convention Centre Dublin - CCD

 

 

THANKS for a great meeting in Dublin, thanks for your talks, posters, your participation and all the discussions - thanks for sharing our vision that interdisciplinary knowledge exchange is the basis for innovation!

Every four years...

... the World Molecular Imaging Congress is taking place in Europe. As the WMIC 2012 will took place in Dublin we didn't organise a separate European Molecular Imaging Meeting in 2012; the WMIC 2012 was also be the annual meeting of the ESMI - the EMIM 2012 .

The World Molecular Imaging Congress is commonly organised by the joint efforts of the ESMI, and the "World Molecular Imaging Society - WMIS", and the "Federation of Asian Societies for Molecular Imaging - FASMI".

Programme

It is with pleasure that the ESMI treasurer Bernd Pichler from Tuebingen, Germany was the Programme Chair of the congress. He was supported by the entire Committee, and all the chair persons, speakers, and scientists from all over the world who will submit their abstract!

Fabian Kiessling from Aachen, Germany was the Chairperson for the Educational Sessions in Dublin together with Robert Gillies from Tampa, US. Thanks to all of you for your commitment, efforts, thoughts, and inspiration!

We succeed in attracting high-level experts who are sharing our ambition and helped us to develop an excellent educational concept.

Educational Sessions

The WMIC started with the Educational Sessions on Wednesday 5 September 2012.

We have beenm excited to emphasise the importance of the educational part by developing a new concept based on a three year concept developed by outstanding scientists covering the main topics

  • Chemistry of contrast media
  • What life scientists should know about imaging modalities
  • Postprocessing and Cross Validation
  • Biology and Pathology

We succeed in attracting high-level experts who are sharing our ambition and helped us to develop an excellent educational concept.
