Medical Information and Image Processing are experiencing an accelerated growth worldwide in the past decade and are reaching all parts of the world. In particular, Spanish and Portuguese speaking countries in Latin America, which have a long and rich history of academic and clinical institutions, are addressing a variety of healthcare challenges, both general and specific to the region. The academic communities in these countries have been growing and have attended and organized a growing number of regional and international conferences and meetings.
In this context, the International Symposium on Medical Information Processing and Analysis (SIPAIM) is a yearly event held in various Latin American cities. Its main goal is bringing together medical and biomedical researchers from the region with a strong interest in image and signal analysis.
SIPAIM is a non-profit foundation promoting research and academic activities in the field of medical information management and imaging by bringing together scientists, engineers, physicians, surgeons, educators and students mainly, although not exclusively, from Latin American countries.
Through these events, SIPAIM managed to stimulate the emergence of a growing Latin American network related to medical and biomedical information. We are convinced that including the MICCAI community - with its traditional ingenuity and brilliance - in these discussions will help pave the way to a whole set of new scientific challenges, models and solutions.
