  1. Looks like a very appealing agenda, much more papers than last ISSCC.
    Unfortunately the exec. committee of ISSCC has decided that ISSCC no longer will organize an imaging forum. I participated (together with many others) in the organization of 10 forum events in a row but 2015 will be without imaging forum. Too bad ... So now you know why I started my own forum.
