About the conference

BASP Frontiers is an international conference aimed at gathering researchers from around the globe to communicate the latest advances in Biomedical and Astronomical Signal Processing, with a core focus on computational imaging.

12 years down the line… Building on the success of the first five events in 2011, 2013, 2015, 2017, and 2019, (Covid-cancelled in 2021), the 2023 conference gathered circa 90 participants in the unique environment of the Swiss Alps, and opened its floor to synergetic discussions on topics ranging from the latest theoretical developments in signal processing and AI methodology, to their application for imaging inverse problems, image analysis, and other scientific computing challenges. Major Fourier imaging modalities such as aperture synthesis by radio interferometry in astronomy and magnetic resonance imaging in medicine have contributed to define the ethos of BASP Frontiers since its inception in 2011. But a variety of other imaging and more general sensing modalities have enriched the conference since then.

Ski & full board philosophy: Following our tradition, BASP Frontiers 2023 took place in a ski resort of the Swiss Alps in a full board regime. The most fruitful discussions often take place after the sessions themselves, on the terrace, or during breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Invited & contributed work: Session organisers were invited by the steering committee, and work jointly with the committee to invite speakers for talks and poster presentations. Proposals for additional contributed poster presentations were subject to abstract review and acceptance (see abstract submission).

Contribution policy: Registration was only accessible to participants presenting an invited or contributed abstract (see list of participants).

In-person event mode and force majeure: BASP Frontiers is an in-person event only. There was no possibility for online presentations. The committee monitored on a continuous basis any chance of disruption to the organisation due a major event such as the COVID-19 pandemic (see COVID-19 page) and would communicated necessary measures with the participants.
