27th Information Processing in Medical Imaging Call for Papers

Bornholm, Denmark - June 27th-July 2nd, 2021


First Call for Papers!

The 27th biennial international conference on Information Processing
in Medical Imaging (IPMI 2021) will be held at the island of Bornholm,
Denmark from June 27th to July 2nd, 2021. The conference is the latest
in a series where novel developments in the acquisition, formation,
analysis and display of medical images are presented, discussed,
dissected, and extended. Over the last five decades, 26 successful
conference editions and the strong community behind it have evolved
IPMI to one of the premier conferences in medical image analysis. IPMI
places the highest importance on high-quality submissions coupled with
presentations and thorough discussions of the presented
contributions. IPMI 2021 will continue the scientific focus and
traditions established over the last 50 years.

Cutting edge research in the medical imaging field IPMI's mission is
to facilitate and showcase the latest methodological developments
within medical imaging. An "IPMI paper" presents novel methodological
developments that solve medical imaging analysis problems. Today, IPMI
is widely recognised as a preeminent international forum for
presentation of cutting edge research in the medical imaging field
including the following topics:

** Image registration 
** Image segmentation 
** Image acquisition and reconstruction 
** Image fusion and synthesis 
** Novel deep learning methods for medical imaging 
** Statistics for medical imaging
** Computer-aided detection and diagnosis 
** Computational anatomy and physiology 
** Visualization and physicalization 
** Multimodal image processing and analysis 
** Functional and molecular imaging 
** Imaging and genomics 
** Image guided surgery 
** Uncertainty estimation 
** Interpretability and explainable algorithms 
** Loss functions for medical imaging 
** Transfer learning, domain adaptation, data harmonization 
** Generative modelling 
** Learning with noisy or limited data 
** Statistical and mathematical models 
** Geometric learning, geometric deep learning, geometric statistics 
** Shape modeling and analysis

Objective We plan a strong agenda of scientific presentations that
will secure the attendance of outstanding researchers from throughout
the world in a pleasant and informal setting conducive to in-depth
scientific exchange and lively debate. Our objective in organizing
IPMI 2021 is to continue to nurture and encourage contributions from
students and junior faculty with the hope that exchanges between the
newer and the more established members of the research community will
strengthen the scientific program and the field of biomedical image
analysis in general. Proceedings will be published as a volume in the
Springer Lecture Notes Computer Science (LNCS) series. Selected papers
will be invited to publish extended versions in a special issue in the
new free online journal Machine Learning for Biomedical Imaging
(MELBA) - http://melba-journal.org.

Submission of full papers: 6 December 2020 
Reviews due date: 24 January 2021 
Notification of acceptance: February 2021 (To be announced) 
Camera copy ready: March 2021 (To be announced) 
Conference: 27 June - 2 July 2021

Contingency plan: We sincerely hope that the COVID-19 pandemic will be
under control well before IPMI 2021 takes place next summer. However,
should unforeseen circumstances prevent the conference from happening
physically as planned, we will plan for a virtual conference similarly
to the many conferences this year that are now virtual due to the
virus outbreak. Importantly, this implies that proceedings with
accepted papers will still be published in such a circumstance. We
will continue to monitor the situation as the conference comes
closer. Any updates will be published on the conference website.

IPMI'21 is a MICCAI Society endorsed event.
