   Introduction

Mathematical Methods in Biomedical Image Analysis (MMBIA) 2008 is the ninth in a series of workshops on biomedical image analysis, to be held in conjunction with CVPR 2008 at Anchorage, Alaska. This workshop is devoted to the presentation and discussion of new developments in computational techniques for the analysis of biomedical images.


 
      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 The final program will consist of previously unpublished and contributed papers, with substantial time allocated to discussion.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. In submitting a paper to MMBIA, authors acknowledge that no paper of substantially similar content has been or will be submitted to another conference or workshop during the MMBIA review period.

Paper Submission

Blind review: MMBIA reviewing is double blind: authors do not know the names of the reviewers of their papers, and reviewers do not know the names of the authors. Please see the author kit for detailed explanations of how to ensure this.

Formatting: Papers are limited to eight pages. Please use the CVPR author kit to format the papers. The workshop chairs reserve the right to reject papers violating the paper length and the formatting instructions outright, without review.

Submission: MMBIA is using an online submission system. Please submit the papers through the online system.

Simultaneous submissions: In submitting a paper to MMBIA, authors acknowledge that no paper of substantially similar content has been or will be submitted to another conference or workshop during the MMBIA review period.
