UI engineering lecture on computational anatomy scheduled April 1

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Michael I. Miller, director of the Center for Imaging Science at the Whiting School of Engineering, Johns Hopkins University, will deliver a Caterpillar Distinguished Lecture, "Computational Anatomy: An Emerging Discipline," at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, April 1 in Room 225, Chemistry Building.

In his talk Miller plans to describe recent results in computational anatomy as applied to the geometric structures of the brain. The lecture, free and open to the public, is sponsored by the University of Iowa College of Engineering, the department of electrical and computer engineering and Caterpillar Inc.

The Caterpillar Distinguished Lecture Series is made possible by grants awarded to the UI College of Engineering through the UI Foundation by Caterpillar Inc. of Peoria, Ill. The grants comprise the Caterpillar Excellence Fund, which aids student, faculty and curriculum development in the College of Engineering. The fund also supports a colloquium series that brings prominent engineers to the UI campus to present one-day seminars for students and faculty. In addition, it provides computer equipment to help undergraduates conduct on-line searches of engineering patent literature.

Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all UI-sponsored events. People requiring an accommodation in order to participate in this program are asked to contact the College of Engineering in advance at 319-335-5764.
