Wednesday–Friday, May 25–27, 2022 ♦ Vanderbilt University Medical Center       

It is our great pleasure to host the 2022 annual meeting of the ASA Statistics in Imaging section. It aims to gather together investigators working on methods and applications in a diverse array of imaging science areas, including neuroimaging, immunofluorescence imaging, and geospatial imaging.

We are hosting the conference in a hybrid format so that attendees have the option of participating online and/or on-site. (This plan is subject to change since the COVID-19 pandemic may affect what is feasible.) On-site sessions will take place in Light Hall, with a Wednesday evening social in Langford Auditorium (Vanderbilt University campus map ). A virtual poster session will be held on Gathertown on Wednesday, May 18 (the week before the conference).

Conference schedule 

The first day will include three minicourses (included with your registration), a showcase of student paper award winners, and a social hour. The second and third days will feature invited talks from major contributors in our field, including the founder's talk by Daniel Rowe and keynote addresses by Nicole Lazar and John Gore. Course descriptions and abstracts can be viewed via the schedule page and the roster of instructors and authors; our poster lineup will give you plenty to look at and talk about, too!
