********** First call for papers **********

FIMH2017, 11-13 June, 2017 Toronto, Canada

Dear colleague,

FIMH 2017 is the 9th international conference on Functional Imaging
and Modeling of the Heart. This biennial scientific event aims to
integrate the state of the art research and novel development efforts
in the fields of cardiovascular modeling and image analysis. The main
goal is to encourage collaboration among students, junior and senior
scientists working in signal and image processing, imaging, applied
mathematics, biophysics, biomedical engineering, and experts in
cardiology, radiology, biology and physiology.  FIMH 2017 will be held
on June 11-13, 2017 in Toronto, Canada. The venue for the conference
is Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. Sunnybrook is an academic and
research health sciences centre as well as a teaching hospital of the
University of Toronto, Faculty of Medicine.

We are delighted to confirm that FIMH 2017 will feature four
exceptional keynote lectures from the following world-class experts:
Dr. Maxime Sermesant (Inria-Asclepios, France), Dr. Debiao Li (UCLA
and Cedar Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, USA), Dr. Maria Drangova
(Robarts Research Institute, London-Ontario, Canada) and Dr. Dorin
Comaniciu (Siemens, Princeton, USA). More information will be posted
soon on our website, so please check regularly for updates:

Topics of interest:
We solicit original contributions (8-page LNCS-Springer format)
related but not limited to the following topics:

- anatomical and functional cardiac imaging methods, and associated
