In the second week of May, Santiago Sanz and Óscar Peña carried out a research stay in the Health Time facilities of Córdoba and Jaén, Spain. We had the chance to chat and learn from their researchers, doctors, and radiologist in order to extend our diffusion knowledge to the abdominal parts, from the characterization and diagnosis to the acquisition procedure with several MRI (3T, 1.5 and 1T).

In the first week of May, Alex Frangi and Carlos Alberola-López, together with Janette Wallace and Johanne Langford, have carried out an on-site visit of the Granada Conference Venue in which Miccai 2018 will take place. We have the chance to check that the premises are excellent for Miccai: appropriate rooms for tutorials and workshops, a nice main hall for oral sessions and sunny and ample spaces for poster sessions, industrial exhibitions and meals.
The LPI was present at the Annual Conference of the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM 2016), held last May in Singapore. Two communications were presented at the conference, entitled "Local Analysis of Tract Density Imaging for the Detection of White Matter Alterations" and "Fractal Dimension as a Global Descriptor of the White Matter in Diffusion MRI Group Studies".
The LPI was present in 4th International Work-Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedical Engineering (IWBBIO 2016), organised by the UGR, hold last April at Granada. Full contributions are published in Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics as part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) edited by Springer. A full communication entitled "An Automated Tensorial Classification Procedure for Left Ventricular Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy " was sent to the conference and consequently presented in oral session.
