This annual event provides updates in development of the numerous techniques offered across the Australian Synchrotron’s nine beamlines for the Australian user community, their international light source colleagues and potential users. The event also showcases novel and advanced applications of the techniques across the facility, in published and unpublished work. The meeting will be held at the National Centre for Synchrotron Science (NCSS) at the Australian Synchrotron on Thursday 20th to Friday 21st November 2014. MASSIVE is a bronze sponsor of the event.

Imaging informatics is increasingly important to help make discoveries using the data that can be produced by instruments such as MR, CT and PET. Using these facilities, researchers are increasingly collecting large amounts of multi-dimensional data and consideration must be given to acquisition, capture, management, analysis and visualisation. For example, longitudinal large-cohort studies are becoming increasingly important to understand brain structure and function over the course of a disease or treatment. Strong data capture and management is important to ensure confidence in the data collected and to ensure data can be over the entire term of a study, and sometimes beyond. Likewise, sophisticated analysis and visualisation plays an essential role in this process to extract information and to obtain statistically meaningful results. Automation of the research data lifecycle is increasingly becoming more important as data sizes and collections increase. 

This workshop is intended to:

  • Highlight a range of projects that have been undertaken in data acquisition, collection and management, computing infrastructure, analysis, and computing and visualisation or imaging data;
  • Present good practise and applied informatics case-studies;
  • Spur discussion about informatics infrastructure for MR, CT and PET; and
  • Feed the future strategy for imaging informatics projects.
