MEDICAL IMAGING MEETS NIPS

Saturday, December 8th - Palais des Congrès de Montréal, Canada

Scope

'Medical Imaging meets NIPS' is a new satellite workshop established in 2017. The workshop aims to bring researchers together from the medical image computing and machine learning communities. The objective is to discuss the major challenges in the field and opportunities for joining forces. This year the workshop will feature an oral and poster session where accepted works are presented. In addition, there will be a series of high-profile invited speakers from industry, academia, engineering and medical sciences giving an overview of recent advances, challenges, latest technology and efforts for sharing clinical data.

Motivation

Medical imaging is facing a major crisis with an ever increasing complexity and volume of data and immense economic pressure. The interpretation of medical images pushes human abilities to the limit with the risk that critical patterns of disease go undetected. Machine learning has emerged as a key technology for developing novel tools in computer aided diagnosis, therapy and intervention. Still, progress is slow compared to other fields of visual recognition which is mainly due to the domain complexity and constraints in clinical applications which require most robust, accurate, and reliable solutions.

Call for Abstracts

We invite submissions of extended abstracts for oral and poster presentation during the workshop. Submitting an abstract is an ideal way of engaging with the workshop and to showcase research in the area of machine learning for medical imaging. Submitted work does not have to be original and can be already published elsewhere and/or can be of preliminary nature. There will be no workshop proceedings, but accepted abstracts together with author information will be made available on this website.
