Chacko, a grad student in Michael Liebling’s lab, received a Best Student Paper Award (sponsored by Amazon and the IEEE Journal on Biomedical and Health Informatics) at the IEEE International Conference on Biomedical Imaging held 16-19 April 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Chacko’s paper, co-authored with Kevin Chan and Liebling, is entitled “Intensity-Based Point-Spread-Function-Aware Registration for Multi-View Applications in Optical Microscopy.”

ISBI is an annual conference co-sponsored by the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) and the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS). It covers algorithmic, mathematical and computational aspects of biomedical imaging. In 2015, ISBI received 705 paper submissions (381 accepted) and was attended by some 600 participants. Four papers were selected for the Best Student Paper Awards among 18 finalists, after presentation at the conference.
