EMIM 2017 Scientific Programme

Programme - how to and who?

The programme is done by you! The more abstracts are submitted in "your" field of research, the more sessions will be dedicated to your research area. The session names/topics will be defined AFTER the abstract deadline in accordance with the number and quality of submissions per category.

The Programme Chair at the same time the current President - Mathias Hoehn - is responsible for the overall scientific concept and supervision of programme shaping. Category chairs and subchairs form one team responsible for the representation and evaluation of "their" category. Read more about people involved

EMIM 2017 Session Types

A pre-symposium dedicated to BIG DATA is scheduled for 4 April 2017 from 12.00h to 18.00h. Do not miss to join and learn more about algorithms, machine learning, and the conscientious use of large data sets relevant for your research.


The Educational Sessions are scheduled for 5 April from 8:30h to 11:30h. There will be 4 educational sessions in parallel - see also right hand side. We hope you like it! You can register to the educational sessions during the registration process. We charge a "symbolic" fee of 10 in order to ensure attendance.


The Plenary Lectures shall represent - beside the "usual" themes - topics closely related to your research field with an increase in interest and relevance. One Plenary Lecture is dedicated to the winners of the ESMI award for excellent PhD thesis 2016 and the ESMI award winner 2017.


Each of the 21 Parallel Sessions starts with an overview talk of about 25 min followed by five talks chosen from your abstract submissions.


Study Group Meetings are organised by the leadership of each ESMI Study Groups and are open for everybody who is interested. The following group meetings are scheduled:

  • Hyper-MRI, Mass Spectrometry, and X-RAY Imaging: Tuesday 4 April at 18:00h
  • Standardization group: Thursday 6 April at 17:00h
  • Neuro-Imaging, IGDD, Intra-Operative Imaging: Friday 7 April at 11:30h

"Best of" Focus Sessions are jointly organised by related societies. The set-up differs from the parallel sessions: three talks 30 min will be given. Joint sessions will be held in cooperation with the EANM, the ESR/ESMOFIR, and the WMIS.


A post-Symposium on "Evolving Hybrid imaging into clinical practice" is scheduled for 8 April organized by the European Society of Molecular and Functional Imaging in Radiology - ESMOFIR and the European Society for Hybrid Medical Imaging - ESHI be warmly invited to extend your stay in Cologne!
