23rd Medical Image Analysis and Understanding Conference Call for Papers


Submission deadline: March 4, 2019



July 24-26, 2018

University of Liverpool, UK


MIUA 2019 is the 23rd conference of the Medical Image Understanding
and Analysis series organised in the United Kingdom for communicating
research progress in biomedical image analysis. Its goals are the
dissemination and discussion of research in medical image processing
and analysis. All researchers in medical image analysis are encouraged
to attend, including mathematicians, computer scientists,
bioinformaticians, clinicians, engineers and bioscientists. Together,
we aim to encourage growth and raise the profile of this
multi-disciplinary field. The conference features keynote speakers,
tutorials, workshops, and oral and poster presentations.



Authors are invited to submit full papers of length between 8 and 12
pages (1 column - LNCS Springer format) showing original research
contributions in medical image analysis and processing. The conference
proceedings will be published in the Springer CCIS - Communications
in Computer and Information Science and there will be a special issue
in the Journal of Imaging for selected papers.

Special Session Proposals due:      Mar 1, 2019
Paper Submission deadline:           Mar 4, 2019
Author Notification:                         Apr 15, 2019
Camera-ready papers due:             Apr 26, 2019
Early-bird registration due:             Apr 28, 2019


We will precede MIUA with a two-day Workshop on Image Processing
Techniques and Applications, which can be booked separately or
alongside the conference. MIUA will take place Wednesday-Friday and,
on Saturday, we are planning a social/ networking event at the
Snowdonia National Park.
