Medical Image Understanding and Analysis 2008


University of Dundee, July 2nd & 3rd

Chairs: Stephen McKenna and Jesse Hoey


MIUA 2008 is the 12th in a series of annual meetings. MIUA is the
principal UK forum for communicating research progress in image
analysis applied to medicine and the biological sciences. This is an
area notable for the range of research communities involved, and the
meeting aims to encourage the growth and raise the profile of this
multi-disciplinary field by bringing together these various
communities. Contributions from outside the UK are also welcome and
encouraged. The scope of the meeting extends from analysis of medical
and biological images to imaging physics and clinical studies.
MIUA 2008 will include keynote presentations by three invited speakers:
    * Michael Unser (EPFL): A guided tour of splines for medical imaging
    * Jayaram K. Udupa (University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia):
Comparing and Evaluating Image Segmentation Methods
    * Nikos Paragios (cole Centrale de Paris): Deformable
Registration: Setting the State of the Art

MIUA is single-track with oral and poster presentations. All accepted
contributions will be published and the full proceedings will be
available at the conference. Selected papers are also likely to be
published in the on-line journal, Annals of the BMVA. CPD
accreditation is being sought from relevant organisations.


       Technical papers (5 pages) are solicited on any topic within
the scope of the conference. Each paper will be evaluated by three

       Challenge abstracts (1 page) are also solicited. These should
outline a challenge to the image analysis community from a clinical or
end-user perspective.


Deadline for submissions: 14 March 2008
