You are invited to the Women in Engineering (WIE) Lunch to be held at the 2017 IEEE NSS-MIC & 24th RTSD, Atlanta, GA. The lunch is scheduled for noon Thursday October 26.

The WIE lunch is an opportunity to hear from, and meet with, eminent STEM scholars dedicated not only to research, but also, to the advancement of women in STEM disciplines. Lunch attendees will hear of specific professional experiences of the STEM scholars and of programs the STEM scholars have helped establish and advance in support of STEM women.

Lunch attendees will meet junior and senior STEM women and thus have opportunity to network or/and to search for mentors or mentees.

Lunch will be provided on a first come first serve basis. If you are interested in attending the WIE Lunch, please indicate your interest and intent when you register for the meeting. If lunch tickets are available when you register, the registration software will indicate such and confirm a WIE Lunch ticket in your name.

We look forward to seeing you in Atlanta!!!!

STIR Usersʼ & Developersʼ Meeting

TimeThursday, October 26, 18:00-20:00
LocationPIEDMONT Room
OrganizersKris Thielemans (University College London)
 Charalampos Tsoumpas (University of Leeds)

STIR is Open Source software for use in tomographic imaging. Its aim is to provide a Multi-Platform Object-Oriented framework for all data manipulations in tomographic imaging. Currently, the emphasis is on image reconstruction in emission tomography (PET and SPECT) but other imaging modalities can be added in the future. This year we will also present SIRF (Synergistic Image Reconstruction Framework) for PET/MR reconstruction, open source software that builds on STIR and Gadgetron. During this annual meeting, experienced users and developers will present their recent work with STIR with technical emphasis on software and algorithmic development. Additional time will be allowed for discussion between the speakers and the audience. If interested in presenting contact the chairs before the 15th of September. Registration will open soon. For up-to-date information check STIR website: https://stir.sf.net.
