Open Hands-on Workshop on the Insight Segmentation and Registration Toolkit (ITK)

Summary: ITK is a widely used free and open-source, cross-platform software toolkit that provides an extensive suite of software tools for biomedical image analysis, especially segmentation and registration. Developed using extreme programming methodologies, ITK employs leading-edge algorithms for registering and segmenting multidimensional data. Luis Ibanez, Matt McCormick, and Xiaoxiao Liu from Kitware, Inc. will join local ITK experts Hans Johnson, Kent Williams, David Welch, and Daniel Langstraat to conduct a hands-on workshop on ITK at the University of Iowa. The interactive portion of this workshop will include an introduction to ITK, Simple ITK and Python, with hands-on exercises on advanced image filtering, segmentation, and registration. A free USB thumb drive will be provided with all necessary software.

When: Thursday, May 30th, 10am-5pm. The first hour (10am – 11am) will provide an ITK overview for those who cannot attend the whole workshop. The rest of the workshop will be a hands-on learning experience.

Where: The University of Iowa, 3505 Seaman Center, directions will be provided upon registration

Audience: This workshop is appropriate for scientific programmers, especially image analysts, who are interested in learning about ITK and ways to use it in their work.

Cost & registration: Free. Advance registration requested to help us make better arrangements. Please fill out the registration form at
