IMPORTANT DATES:
*  Mai 5, 2008 - Extended Paper Submission Deadline
*  June 20, 2008  - Notification to Authors
*  July 4, 2008   - Final Papers due


MFCA-2008 is devoted to statistical and geometrical aspects of the modeling of the variability of biological shapes. The  goal is to foster the interactions between the mathematical  community around shapes and the MICCAI community around  computational anatomy applications. The workshop aims at  being a forum for the exchange of the theoretical ideas and  a source of inspiration for new methodological developments  in computational anatomy. Contributions are solicited in (but not limited to):
*  Riemannian and group theoretical methods
*  Geometric measurements of the anatomy
*  Advanced statistics on deformations and shapes
*  Metrics for computational anatomy
*  Statistics of surfaces

PAPER SUBMISSION:

6 to 10 pages in pdf in LNCS format (miccai guidelines). The pdf version of papers has to be submitted by email to both Xavier.Pennec@sophia.inria.fr and sjoshi@sci.utah.edu if it is under 5 Mb, or by anonymous ftp at ftp://ftp-sop.inria.fr/asclepios/Incoming/MFCA08/ with an email to the above addresses to inform the chairs.

Best papers will be selected for publication in a special issue of Journal of Mathematical Imaging and vision. Double submissions are allowed for this workshop and for the  MICCAI Conference, but the authors have to declare it  at the submission time. Furthermore, if a paper is accepted both at the MICCAI 2008 conference, the paper will have to be withdrawn from the workshop.
