MMBIA 2009: IEEE Computer Society Workshop on Mathematical Methods in Biomedical Image Analysis
Mathematical Methods in Biomedical Image Analysis (MMBIA) 2009 is the tenth in a series of workshops on biomedical image analysis, being held in conjunction with CVPR 2009. This workshop is devoted to the presentation and discussion of new developments in computational techniques for the analysis of biomedical images. Our goal is to foster discussion of mathematical approaches to biomedical image analysis and modeling. The program will consist of previously unpublished, contributed, and invited papers, with a substantial time allocated to discussion. In addition, we encourage submissions that address novel problems in bio/medical imaging that call for mathematical modeling or analysis.
Call for papers
Biomedical image analysis has attracted considerable amount of interest in the computer vision and medical communities. The proposed workshop is a follow-up to the MMBIA workshop series that started in 1994 and continues to attract tremendous interest. Due to the advancement in biomedical imaging modalities, new computational algorithms continue to emerge. This workshop is a venue for such papers which potentially involve interdisciplinary researchers from all the fields connected to biomedical image analysis. Our goal is to foster in-depth discussions via oral and poster paper tracks supported by sessions on selected topics.
The workshop will bring together researchers in computer vision, graphics, computational geometry and robotics communities involved in biomedical image analysis. Our scope not only includes biomedical image analysis but also other problem domains connected to medicine in the area of biological image analysis.
This workshop calls for original, high-quality paper submissions that address innovative research and development in the area of mathematical methods for biomedical image analysis. The final program includes previously unpublished paper contributions with substantial amount of time for research discussions.
Topics of interests include but are not limited to:
Computational Anatomical Atlases
Classification Methods for Biomedical Data
Evaluation Methods for Biomedical Data
Snakes, Splines and Deformable Models
PDE-based Methods of Image Analysis
Biomedical Image Motion Analysis
Biomedical Image Reconstruction Methods
Real-time algorithms for Biomedical Data Analysis using GPUs
Paper 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.
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.
Supplemental Material: Supplemental material submission is optional. This material may include: videos of results that cannot be included in the main paper, anonymized related submissions to other conferences and journals, and appendices or technical reports containing extended proofs and mathematical derivations that are not essential for understanding of the paper. Contents of the supplemental material should be referred to appropriately in the paper and that reviewers are not obliged to look at it. For further details refer to CVPR author guidelines.
Simultaneous submissions: Our policy is that in submitting a paper, authors implicitly acknowledge that no paper of substantially similar content has been or will be submitted to another conference or workshop until MMBIA decisions are made.
