: IPMI occupies an important position in the scienti?c calendar. Every two years, it brings together leading researchers in medical image formation, analysis and interpretation, for an international workshop that allows extensive, in-depth d- cussion of new ideas. Many of the most in?uential developments in the ?eld were ?rst presented at IPMI, and the series has done much to foster a rigorous sci- ti?c approach to information processing in medical imaging. IPMI 2003 was held over 5 days in July 2003 at St. Martinâs College, - bleside, in the heart of the English Lake District. Full papers were invited on any aspect of information processing in medical imaging, with particular - couragement for submissions exploring generic mathematical or computational principles. Recognizing the rapidly evolving nature of the ?eld, we encouraged a broadinterpretationofmedicalimaging:frommacroscopictomolecularimaging; from applications in patient care to those in biomedical research. We received 123 submissions by the deadline in February 2003. Each paper was reviewed by four members of the Scienti?c Committee, placing particular emphasis on originality, scienti?c rigor, and biomedical relevance. Papers were selected for the meeting by a Paper Selection Committee, based on reviewersâ rankings and theirdetailedcomments. Atotalof28paperswereacceptedasoralpresentations and 29 as posters. Unfortunately, the standard was so high that we had to turn down many excellent papers.
