Medical Image Understanding and Analysis 2008



MIUA 2008 will take place in Dundee on 2nd and 3rd July 2008. This is the principal UK forum for communicating research progress in image analysis applied to medicine and the biological sciences. It aims to encourage the growth and raise the profile of this multi-disciplinary field by bringing together the various communities involved. Contributions from outside the UK are welcome and encouraged. The scope of the meeting extends from analysis of medical and biological images to imaging physics and clinical studies.

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