Dear Colleagues,

I am the Editor for the book volume entitled Biomedical Visualisation within the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology (AEMB), by Springer International Publishing (copyright holder Springer Nature Switzerland AG). The first 2 volumes are due out soon, with the third just being completed, the fourth well underway and now compiling volume 5.

The links to the first two are here:

I would like to invite you to contribute a chapter (or more if you had any other ideas!) for this book, Volume 5, potentially volume 6, hopefully to be out later this year. The theme is exactly in the area we work in – visualisation and visualisation in science, and will encapsulate how we have merged science and imaging and now convey complex biomedical information into something more meaningful by visual means.

This can encompass work in image analysis, workflow methodologies, photogrammetry in science, animations, digital reconstructions and applications, big data and visualisations, educational methodologies, usability and evaluations, augmented and virtual reality, and 3D and 4D technologies, including 3D printing, as well as informatics, e-tutorials, MOOCs, HCI and public engagement. It can be from macroscopic to microscopic but show how we can view data and information related to the biomedical field in a much more accessible, innovative and engaging way using technology. It can also be related to the arts and humanities linked to science and how we look at the human body and related body processes.

The scope as you can see, is rather large and really related to visualisation in the biomedical and related fields including medicine, dentistry, veterinary surgery, computing and the allied health professions. It is at the junctions between technology, science and the arts.

A few key facts about the book chapter:

  • Font size 12, 1.5 spacing,  Arial
  • Minimum 10 pages inc references, but excluding figures and tables
  • Send title and one page outline to me by 15th April 2019
  • Send final chapter for review and editing to me by 10th June 2019

Your chapter can encompass original research or be a review of the literature related to current, new and emerging technologies in biomedical visualisation, HCI/HCT and informatics. The link for formatting and further info about layout can be found here:

Can you let me know as soon as possible if this is something you would be interested in, and send over your outline too. Could you also let me know of any colleagues who may be interested in contributing a book chapter.

Best wishes, Paul
