CFP: MICCAI 2007 workshop on Content-based Image Retrieval for Biomedical Image Archives

Call for Papers: 
   MICCAI 07 workshop: 
Content-based Image Retrieval for Biomedical Image Archives: 
   Achievements, Problems, and Prospects 
   October 2007  
   Brisbane, Australia 

 Paper submission deadline: June 15, 2007 

In most biomedical disciplines, digital image data is rapidly expanding in 
quantity and heterogeneity, and there is an increasing trend towards the 
formation of archives adequate to support diagnostics and preventive 
medicine. Exploration, exploitation, and consolidation of the immense image 
collections, from nano to macro, require tools to access structurally 
different data for research, diagnostics and teaching. Currently, image data 
is linked to textual descriptions, and data access is provided only via 
these textual additives. There are virtually no tools available to access 
medical images directly by their content or to cope with their structural 
differences. Visual-based (i.e. content-based) indexing and retrieval based 
on information contained in the pixel data of medical images is expected to 
have a great impact on biomedical image databases. However, existing systems 
are not applicable to medical imagery's special needs, and novel 
methodologies are urgently needed. 

The goal of this workshop is to introduce the topic of content-based image 
retrieval (CBIR), in particular CBIR in medical image archives (medical 
image retrieval), and to brainstorm on the key issues that are critical to 
short- and long-term advances in the field. Also, we will assess the 
prospects of advancing biomedical CBIR with new, publicly-available Web- 
based systems, new collaborative efforts among existing research groups, or 
new CBIR deployments in biomedical environments where high impact is likely. 
Intended audience includes both the engineers and computer scientists who 
develop image processing algorithms, as well as medical experts who we 
believe can utilize the CBIR technology to augment diagnostics, research and 
training. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to): 
?Medical image categorization 
? Statistical models for medical image representation and indexing 
? Feature extraction ? from global to local to relational 
?Patch-based ("bag-of-features") representation/retrieval 
?SIFT ? scale invariantfeatures 
Region-of-interest retrieval 
? Shape indexing in medical image databases 
?Combining image with text for automated annotation 
?Content-based compression 
?Retrieval application domains: Mammography; Radiology; other 
?Web interfaces for medical CBIR 

 Paper submission deadline: June 15, 2007 

The authors of the three best presentations will be invited to contribute a 
paper to a special issue of the International Journal of Healthcare 
Information Systems and Informatics (IJHISI), a publication of the 
Information Resources Management Association (IRMA).; 

The Editor-In-Chief, IEEE Transactions on Information Technology in 
Biomedicine (TITB), is inviting submissions to TITB 
of extended papers originating from the workshop.
