Who we are

History

GIMIAS is developed by the Centre for Computational Imaging and Simulation Technologies (CISTIB) and was initiated under the vision, leadership and fundraising of Prof Frangi, CISTIB’s director. The project to develop GIMIAS as an Open Source project had its origins on the code-based developed at the Universidad de Zaragoza (2002-2004) following a number of successful projects. CISTIB moved to the Universitat Pompeu Fabra where the development was furthered from (2004-2011). As of October 2011, CISTIB moved to the University of Sheffield from where we continue to extend and support GIMIAS as an open-source platform. The project was branded as GIMIAS (Graphical Interface for Medical Image Analysis and Simulation) on 16th of January of 2007. It was born as an internal project in CISTIB with the objective of facilitating that new CISTIB members would be able to build upon the research and software tools of previous members, provide continuity of support and sustainability to our work, and facilitate the clinical translation through efficient prototyping of pre-competitive software prototypes. The first stable version of the open source framework was released by the end of 2009 under a BSD-like licence. On 2010, more effort was done to empower the open source framework itself, improving the usability, support to end-users through engagement in various international projects, and interoperability to other complementary frameworks. Currently, we are continuing along the path of facilitating visual work flowing, providing support for the execution of distributed workflows, and maximising the impact of this platform by deploying vertical demonstrations that illustrate the potential and applicability of GIMIAS across a range of clinical domains.
