Special Session Medical Image Mining and Health (MIME) Call for Papers

Special Session Medical Image Mining and Health (MIME)
to be held at the International Conference on
Content-Based Multimedia Indexing (CBMI 2019)
4-6 September 2019 / Dublin, Ireland


Within the last decade we have observed the emergence of multimedia data
analysis, indexing, and mining in many new domains, including medicine and
personal health. For example, in the field of medical surgery interventional
videos are nowadays recorded and stored in a long-term archive, in order to
analyze and investigate them for postprocedural scenarios, such as operation
documentation, surgical error analysis, as well as training and teaching
techniques. Similarly, in the field of health monitoring, input from various
sensors is now used to supervise patients, supervise their health status, and
mine potential health threats from their data, for example. Other relevant
lines of research include analysis of medical images for diagnosis decision
support, visual analytics for case understanding and causal analysis,
multimedia analysis and multimodal interaction with social agents for basic
care, video monitoring and multimedia fusion for remote management of
patients. This special session aims to bring together researchers working on
analysis, indexing, and mining of multimedia data in the field of medicine and
health and provide them a venue for sharing novel ideas and discuss their
most-recent works.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
* Multimedia data mining in medicine or health
* Medical image and video analysis/indexing
* Causal research and complications investigations by image and video analysis
* Image and video retrieval for medicine
* Case retrieval in medicine by multimedia data
* Multimedia analytics for medicine or health
* Surgical quality assessment by multimedia data analysis and mining
* Health sensor data analysis and mining
* Patient monitoring through sensors
* Multimodal interaction in the health domain
* Speech and audio analysis and retrieval for health applications
* Facial analysis and gesture recognition of patients
* Fusion of multimedia information for health and care-giving applications
* Semantic web approaches for multimedia health applications
* Visual analytics for human machine interaction in the health domain
