CFP: Mathematical Methods in Biomedical Image Analysis (MMBIA 2008)


                 2008 IEEE Computer Society Workshop on
           Mathematical Methods in Biomedical Image Analysis (MMBIA 2008)

                        June 27th - 28th, 2008
                         Anchorage, Alaska.

      ** Paper Submissions Due March 28th, 2008 (EXTENDED) **

Call for Papers

Biomedical image analysis is a fast evolving field driven by the
advancement of imaging modalities and high content screening
techniques. This poses challenges and also opportunities for the
development of analysis algorithms. The workshop will provide an
interdisciplinary forum for researchers involved in all aspects of the
biomedical images analysis, with the focus on new developments in
computational techniques for the analysis of biomedical image data.
Our goal is to foster discussion of mathematical approaches to
biomedical image analysis and modeling in a more focused manner than
can be addressed in the main tracks of the CVPR conference.

The workshop will bring together researchers in computational vision,
computational biology, graphics and robotics communities interested in
problems that involve mathematical modeling or analysis in biomedical
images. Unlike previous workshops, we will expand the scope of the
biomedical images to include not only medical imaging data but also
exciting molecular and cellular imaging data arising from confocal
microscopes. It calls for original, high-quality submissions that
address innovative research and development of biomedical image
analysis. The final program will consist of previously unpublished and
contributed papers, with substantial time allocated to discussion.

Topics of interests include but are not limited to:

    * Computational Anatomical Atlases
    * Image/Curve/Surface/Volume Registration
    * Multidimensional Segmentation
    * Snakes, Splines and Deformable Models
    * PDE-based Methods of Image Analysis
    * Biomedical Image Motion Analysis
    * Multidimensional Data Visualization
    * Molecular and Cellular Image Analysis
    * Functional and Metabolic Image Analysis
    * Image Guided Surgery/Therapy
    * Biomedical Image Databases / Biomedical Image Retrieval
    * Feature Extraction and Pattern Recognition
    * Quantative Imaging Biomarkers
    * Diffusion Tensor Image Analysis
    * Applications

The workshop proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society.
