Histopathology Image Analysis (HIMA) Full-day workshop to be held in conjunction with MICCAI’2012 October 5, 2012 Nice, France Workshop webpage: http://go.warwick.ac.uk/hima2012 Paper submission deadline: May 30, 2012 Analysis of histopathology images is growing in importance with the recent advent of whole slide imaging scanners. Automated analysis of patterns obtained with microscopic imaging is improving diagnosis and grading of cancer and other diseases, for instance in histopathology using multi-staining and multi-spectral techniques. This workshop aims to bring together computer scientists, clinicians, and industrial vendors of digital pathology equipments to discuss (1) the clinical challenges and open problems, (2) present the state-of-the-art research in quantitative image analysis and visualization methods for digital pathology, diagnosis, and prognosis from H&E and IHC stained, multi-parametric imaging, (3) advances in data fusion methods between pathology and other disciplines (including radiology, genomics, and proteomics), and (4) advances in whole slide tissue and multi-spectral imaging technology. We invite submissions that address specific problems related to imaging and image analysis of tissue specimens. We particularly welcome contributions that identify or address challenges for the mainstream approval of automated histology imaging and in situ in vivo image analysis, or provide solutions to the related problems such as mosaicking, and multispectral analysis. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: Acquisition, storage, and processing of microscopy, histology, and endoscopy images Registration of multiple-stained tissue microscopy images Registration histopathology and radiological imaging modalities Shape analysis and morphology in tissue imaging Multi-spectral and volume segmentation Grading and Classification of histology images Content based image Retrieval, semantic annotation, and visualization of histology image databases Image mosaicking of microscopic endoscope images (OCT, microconfocal) Optical based probe tracking and visualization tools Multispectral optical endoscope dimensionality reduction, manifold learning and image analysis Computer-aided diagnosis and prognosis Segmentation and modeling of structures in histology images Important Dates Paper submission deadline: May 30, 2012 Acceptance Notification: July 6, 2012 Submission of the camera-ready papers: August 3, 2012 Final program: August 20, 2012 Proceedings & Special Issue It is anticipated that selected, high quality papers presented at the workshop will be published in a high impact, peer-reviewed biomedical engineering journal.
