Final CFP: MMBIA (with ICCV): Mathematical Methods in Biomedical Image Analysis

Final Call for Papers MMBIA: deadline June 15th

MMBIA 2007: IEEE Computer Society Workshop on
Mathematical Methods in Biomedical Image Analysis

(in conjunction with ICCV)

14,15 October, 2007
Rio de Janeiro, Brasil 

A selection of the best papers of MMBIA will appear in a special issue 
of the International Journal of Computer Vision

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programme will consist of previously unpublished, contributed papers, 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. 
Paper submissions should follow ICCV format guidelines (8 pages).

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
