Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the 9th International Workshop on Biomedical Image Registration, WBIR2020, hosted in Portorož, Slovenia! The workshop will be held in the Congress Centre Bernardin in Portorož, on 16 and 17 June, 2020.

The workshop brings together leading researchers in the area of biomedical image registration to present and discuss recent developments in the field, including methodological innovations and advances in the performance and validation on existing and novel applications. The workshop will include both oral and poster presentations, exciting keynote lectures, all with ample opportunities for discussion. At the social events you will enjoy the warm and relaxing Adriatic seaside along with authentic Mediterranean cuisine and excellent drinks.

Come, share and enjoy!

Submissions are invited in all areas of biomedical image
registration. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Novel registration methodology:

2D/3D/4D, spatiotemporal/dynamic, pairwise / groupwise,
slice-to-volume, projective, single/multi-modal, intra/inter-subject,
model-based, patch-based, multi-channel, tracking

- Mathematical aspects of image registration:

 continuous/discrete optimization, real-time, similarity measures,
 diffeomorphisms, LDDMM, stationary velocity, inverse consistency,

- Machine learning and deep learning techniques for registration:

unsupervised / supervised / reinforcement learning, convolutional /
 recurrent / transformer networks, neural networks for feature
 extraction and matching, correspondence weighting and prediction,
 attention modeling, deformation learning, deep encoder-decoder

- Biomedical applications of registration:

 computer-assisted interventions, image-guided therapy, treatment
 planning/delivery, diagnosis/prognosis, atlas-based segmentation,
 label fusion, histopathology correlation, serial studies, pathology
 detection and localization, morphometry, biomechanics, image
 retrieval/restoration/fusion, imaging biomarkers for precision
 medicine, radiomics & radiogenomics, early proofs of concept

- Validation of registration:

 quantitative and qualitative methods, benchmarking, comparison
 studies, phantom studies, correlation to outcome, validation
 protocols and performance metrics, uncertainty estimation

All accepted full paper submissions will be published as a volume in
the Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.
