Computer Vision and Modelling in Cancer Call for Papers

Computer Vision and Modelling in Cancer: Abstract Submission
MEETING DATE:  Wednesday 11 October 2017

This BMVA one-day meeting will present state-of-the-art developments
in Computer Vision, Computational Modelling and Mathematical Analysis
applied to Cancer.

Recent progress in imaging hardware, acquisition techniques, and
algorithmic processing of data have led to advances in detection,
diagnosis, staging, treatment, and follow-up in cancer-related
clinical workflows, as well as fundamental understanding of cancer
modelling and dynamics.  Cancer imaging includes varied modalities,
and numerous scales including nano, micro, and macro.

This one-day meeting will be dedicated to technical advances that have
potential for clinical relevance, and seeks to bring together a
collection of recently developed approaches in this domain. We hope
the methods presented will inspire future research both from
theoretical and practical viewpoints to spur further advances in the

The topics include, but are not limited to: 
 segmentation in cancer imaging: from cellular structures to 
         cells to lesions to tumours 
 tracking of cells in metastasis and migration processes
 multi-modal registration of cancer images 
 modelling of cancer cells, tumours or vasculature 
 multi-scale cancer modelling
 image-based interventional techniques for cancer treatment 
 tissue characterisation from images 
 histopathology image analysis

Keynote Speakers:

Professor Helen Byrne, University of Oxford
