SPIE Medical Imaging symposium is in Orlando next month!

The SPIE Medical Imaging symposium is being held next month in Orlando. SPIE is going to alternate this big meeting (~1200 attendees) between Orlando and California, where it has been held since its inception over 25 years ago! This is the biggest and best meeting on the topic in the industry! The meeting is 7-12 February 2009 at the Disney Coronado Springs Resort in Lake Buena Vista. Exhibit is 9-11 Feb. It's a small show in terms of the number of exhibitors, but clearly has a large audience of attendees.

This presents a great opportunity to showcase Florida and the medical and biomedical industry, education, and economic resources in the state. We need to do everything possible to make this meeting even better in Orlando than in Newport and San Diego where it has previously been held. The FPC will be working with CREOL and others, including the UCF College of Medicine, to maximize the visibility of our industry and resources relevant to this meeting. We will meet with SPIE representatives during the meeting to see how we can help make future meetings a great success. The meeting will be in Orlando in the odd years; next one in 2011.

CREOL will have a 10x10 booth at the exhibit, and there is still space available if anyone else is interested in exhibiting there. I've attached a flyer that SPIE sent me. Full information on the event, including the big 850+ paper conference program, is available on the web at
