Call for papers: Mathematical Methods in Biomedical Image Analysis (MMBIA) workshop at ICCV 2007

Call for Papers 


MMBIA 2007: IEEE Computer Society Workshop on 

Mathematical Methods in Biomedical Image Analysis 


(in conjunction with ICCV) 


October, 2007 

Rio de Janeiro, Brasil 



Mathematical Methods in Biomedical Image Analysis (MMBIA) 2007 is the eight in a series of workshops on biomedical image analysis, to be held in conjunction with ICCV. This workshop is devoted to the presentation and discussion of new developments in computational techniques for the analysis of biomedical images. Our goal is to foster discussion of mathematical approaches to biomedical image analysis and modeling. The programme will consist of previously unpublished, contributed papers, with a substantial time allocated to discussion. In addition, we encourage submissions that address novel problems in bio/medical imaging that call for mathematical modeling or analysis. 


The workshop proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society. 


A list of possible themes, meant to be suggestive rather than exclusive: 


Computational Anatomical Atlases 

Curve/Surface/Volume Registration 

Inter and Intra-modal Image Registration 

Snakes, Splines and Deformable Models 

PDE-based Methods of Image Analysis 

Motion Analysis 

Multimodal Image Analysis 

Multidimensional Segmentation 

Surface, Volume and Deformation Models of Anatomy 

Multidimensional Data Visualization 

Feature extraction and pattern recognition 

Statistical Methods/Population-based analysis 

Image Guided Surgery/Therapy/Interventions 

Biomedical Image Databases 

Quantitative Imaging Biomarkers 

Functional/Molecular/Metabolic Image Analysis 


Paper submission deadline: June 15, 2007
