With this announcement I would like to invite you on behalf of the Organising Committees of the AEIMS to come to the exciting 22° AEIMS Congress, which will be held in Milan from November 5–7, 2009. After the great success in Maastricht and the joining of both Italian and American Associations we expect an even more successful interaction of all scientific illustrators under the motto: Visualizing the World of Science.
The Scientific Programme Committee has worked out an outstanding scientific programme covering the most recent developments in scientific visualization. The overall programme consists of abstracts and a workshops which are designed to cover both medical, scientific and naturalistic visualization. In addition, this meeting has an educational objective in exposing young illustrators to an international rather than a national audience. The aim is to present an overview of fundamental and applied aspects of scientific visualization.
We invite you to use this unique opportunity to present original artwork and exchange your experiences in the field. The top ranking abstracts will be presented orally. You may find all relevant information and instructions for electronic submission at this website.
Finally, the workshop (thursday the 5th of November) will also be open for the public.
The exciting vivid city of Milan is expecting you to show you not only its science, but also the treasures of its museums, monuments, and its vibrant nightlife. The city is a perfect place to experience a few enriching and enjoyable days with this congress.
We count on your presence to make this congress a great event. We look forward to welcoming you at the Museum of Natural History of Milan in November 2009.
Claus Larsen, President of AEIMS
