|Workshop on Computational Biomedical Image Processing and Analysis (WCBIPA 2012)|
In the recent years, extensive research has been performed to develop efficient and robust computational methods for image processing and analysis. These methods can be applied in numerous areas such as, industry, engineering, medicine, and biology, and can perform different tasks and address distinct goals, like image restoring, image enhancement, image segmentation and description, 3D reconstruction, deformation or motion analysis. Medicine has been one of the several application domains in which these computational methods can be more often found, particularly in supporting the medical diagnosis, the follow-up of pathologies and the design of superior treatment plans and procedures.
The main goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for discussion of issues related to Computational Methods for Biomedical Image Processing and Analysis, in order to set the major lines of development for the near future. As such, the workshop will consist of researches representing various fields related to Biomedical Engineering, Computational Vision, Mathematics, Medical Imaging, among others, and aims also to establish a network between clinicians and researchers from these fields.
Suggested Topics (non-exclusive):
- 3D Reconstruction and Visualization;
- Biomedical Image Analysis and Processing;
- Computational Simulation and Animation;
- Grid Computing in Biomedical Image Analysis and Processing;
- Image Acquisition, Enhancement, Restoring, Compression, Segmentation and Description;
- Medical Imaging;
- Motion Analysis;
- Physics of Biomedical Imaging;
- Software and Applications for Biomedical Image Processing and Analysis;
- Surgical Simulation.
Paper Submission and Formatting Guidelines:
Authors interested in participate and present their works in the workshop “Computational Biomedical Image Processing and Analysis” are encouraged to submit original contributions in one of the following formats:
Full paper: Finished or consolidated works. These papers are assigned to a 6-page limit.
Short paper: Ongoing works with relevant preliminary results, opened to discussion. These papers are assigned to a 4-page limit.
Poster paper: Initial work with relevant ideas, opened to discussion. These papers are assigned to a 2-page limit.
The contributions can be written either in English, Portuguese or Spanish, and should be submitted in PDF format using the EasyChair system available at https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wcbipa2012.
All papers must follow the formatting rules of the Conference (http://www.aisti.eu/cisti2012/papersformat.dot). Please note that, the contributions to be evaluated by the Scientific Committee should not include authors’ identification, e-mail or affiliation (blinded submission).
To ensure that the contribution (full paper, short paper, poster paper) is published in the Conference Proceedings, at least one of the authors must be fully registered until 13th of April, and the paper must comply with the suggested layout and the page-limit. Additionally, all recommended modifications must be addressed by the authors before they submit the final version.
No more than two contributions per registration will be published in the Conference Proceedings. An extra fee must be paid for each additional paper submitted for publication, with a maximum of two additional papers.
Full papers will be published in book and CD, with an ISBN. Short papers and poster papers will be published in CD only, with an ISBN.
Published full papers will be sent to ISI, IEEE’s XPlore, EI and EBSCO. Published short papers will be sent to IEEE’s XPlore, EI and to EBSCO. Poster papers will be sent to EBSCO only, where they will subsequently be indexed.
