Biomedical Visualisation – call for authors.

I have recently been appointed as the Editor for a new volume within the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology (AEMB), a Springer book series, and it will be called Biomedical Visualisation.  The uptake for contributions has been so great we are now into multiple volumes. As such I would like to invite you to contribute a chapter (or more if you had any other ideas!) for this book, hopefully to be out early next year. The theme is exactly in the area we work in - visualisation in science and medical imaging, and will encapsulate how we have merged science and imaging and now convey complex biomedical information into something more meaningful by visual means. This can encompass work in image analysis, workflow methodologies, photogrammetry in science, advances in photography related to the human body, animations, digital reconstructions and applications, big data and visualisations, educational methodologies, usability and evaluations, augmented and virtual reality, and 3D and 4D technologies, including 3D printing, as well as informatics, e-tutorials, MOOCs, HCI and public engagement. It can be from macroscopic to microscopic but show how we can view data and information related to the biomedical field in a much more accessible, innovative and engaging way using technology. The scope as you can see, is rather large and really related to visualisation in the biomedical and related fields including medicine, dentistry, veterinary surgery, computing and the allied health professions. It is at the junction between technology and science.

A few key facts about the book chapter: 

  • Font size 12, 1.5 spacing, Times New Roman or Arial 
  • Minimum 10 pages inc references, figures and tables 
  • Send title and one page outline to me by 28th September 2018 
  • Send final chapter for review and editing to me by 21st December 2018 

Your chapter can encompass original research or be a review of the literature related to current, new and emerging technologies in biomedical visualisation, HCI/HCT and informatics. The link for formatting and further info about layout can be found here. Can you let me know as soon as possible if this is something you would be interested in, and send over your outline too. Could you also let me know of any colleagues who may be interested in contributing a book chapter.
