The proposed Southwest Conference on Integrated Mathematical Methods in Medical Imaging, to be held at Arizona State University (ASU), in Tempe, Arizona on February 6-7, 2010, seeks to enhance the mathematical understanding of the consequences of modern data collection strategies used in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with respect to generating high fidelity images. The conference will bring together researchers from the mathematical sciences, engineering, and application domains to present latest research on mathematical techniques for analyzing data from images, including aspects of image reconstruction, restoration, segmentation and pattern recognition. This will also be an opportunity to gather industry experts, mathematicians, engineers, students, and postdoctoral fellows from the Southwestern part of the United States to develop new collaborations and enhance existing ties. In particular, academic scientists will exchange ideas with (local) MRI industry experts from the Keller Imaging Center at the Barrow Neurological Institute (BNI). Efforts will also be made to encourage minority representation, especially because of the number of minorities at institutions in the region.
