Symposium on Imaging to Explore Use of Technology on Colorado State Campus Jan. 28

The revolution in imaging science that is raising the possibility to see objects and structures not previously imagined is the motivation for holding the Colorado State University Symposium on Imaging from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 28, in the Lory Student Center main ballroom.

At Colorado State, imaging is a fundamentally important technique across a broad spectrum of scientific and engineering disciplines. Satellite images of terrestrial cloud formations, magnetic resonance images of tumors and narrow spectrum light images of far-flung galaxies are just a few of the ways imaging is used. The symposium will provide a platform to showcase the different uses imaging plays for researchers at the Colorado State as well as provide a forum for presenting the barriers and issues facing modern imaging techniques. The goal of the symposium is to foster the multidisciplinary interactions needed to promote the use of imaging.

Speakers, drawn from across campus, will explain the role of imaging in different research fields. During the symposium, discussion sessions will examine common themes and problems across the different fields. The presentations will be aimed at a general audience.

The Symposium on Imaging is sponsored by the Center for Interdisciplinary Mathematics and Statistics and the Office of the Vice President for Research. It is open to all students and faculty. Lunch and refreshments will be served. For more information and to RSVP call Kristin Chatnani at 491-1834.
