"Medical Imaging using Bio-Inspired and Soft Computing" (MIBISOC) is a Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN) within the EU Seventh Framework Programme. MIBISOC is a training programme in which sixteen Early-Stage Researchers (ESRs) are exposed to a wide variety of Soft Computing (SC) and Bio-Inspired Computing (BC) techniques, and face the challenge of applying them to the different situations and problems which characterize medical image processing tasks. Hence, the main goal of the project is to generate new methods and solutions from the combination of the ideas of experts from the area of Medical Imaging (MI) with those working on BC and SC applications. The Intelligent Bio-Inpired Systems laboratory (IBISlab) in the University of Parma is one of the partners of this ITN. In this paper, we describe the work which is being developed in the IBISlab, as well as its future developments and main objectives, within the framework of this ITN.
