The event will consist of two parts:

  • Day 1-2: User training of the various techniques required for image-based simulation
  • Day 3: User and developer forum with keynote talks, presentations and networking opportunities

A general outline of the programme is shown below. An updated list of speakers is available on the keynote speaker page.

This year's forum (Day 3) will include two 'special sessions'. For these sessions attendees will be able to view contributions in advance (posters, slides, videos etc.), during the session each presenter will be awaiting in their own virtual room ready to discuss the work in greater detail.

You may browse previous events' programmes and download presentations for an example of the sessions at IBSim-4i.
