Workshop on Standardization

September 27th, 2016 - Max-Planck-Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences, Leipzig, Germany

The workshop will bring together developers of real-time analysis software, experts in real-time image reconstruction and representatives of scanner manufacturers. To enable efficient exchange and interaction, the workshop format is based on a small group of presenters and attendees (< 25), and shorter talks will be complemented by focused discussions.

In order to facilitate the standardization discussion, the workshop will review the current status and anticipate future developments in the field. The presentations and panel discussions will develop further the standardization goal by discussing data formats, scanner interfacing and bi-directional communication between the MRI scanner and external hardware.
