CfP: MICCAI workshop on Interaction in Medical Image Analysis andVisualization

Call for Papers - MICCAI Workshop on

      Interaction in Medical Image Analysis and Visualization

We invite you to submit papers to a workshop in conjunction with  
MICCAI 2007 in Brisbane ( that will cover aspects  
with the following background:

Although a general ambition is to make medical image analysis and  
visualization systems as automated as possible, the complexity of the  
human anatomy in the images frequently makes it impossible to achieve  
full automation with sufficient quality of the results. In particular,  
image segmentation often requires some human interaction, and in  
volume rendering interactive adjustment of transfer functions is  
common. Since modern medical image data tend to have three or more  
dimensions, and image display and interaction devices are  
predominantly 2D, the required interaction poses challenging problems.

The workshop will take place on Friday November 2, 9 am - 1 pm, with  
invited presentations and contributed posters, with a possibility for  
demonstrations of actual systems on the presenter's own computer.

Deadline for submission of full length workshop papers is June 15, 2007
