ISRM 2014


Please note that all technical presentations, both oral and poster, will be included in the conference proceedings. All presentations are considered to have equal technical merit, and decisions about how they will be presented are guided by session topic and availability of space versus the high volume of quality submissions. Posters will be allocated an extended presentation period to maximize exposure.
