18-20 October 2017

Porto, Portugal



As it has occurred with previous VipIMAGE editions, in the scope of which were organized thematic sessions by well-known researchers, VipIMAGE 2017 has opened a call for thematic sessions.

The organizers of the selected thematic sessions will be included in the conference scientific committee and will have a reduced registration fee. They will be responsible for the dissemination of their thematic session, may invite expertise researchers to have invited keynotes during their session and will participate in the review process of the submitted contributions.

Proposals for Thematic Sessions under the auspicious of VipIMAGE 2017 should be submitted by email to the conference co-chairs (,
