Rapid technical advances in Medical Imaging, including its growing applications to drug, gene therapy, and invasive/interventional procedures, as well as a fusional development of the protein science, imaging modalities, and nano-technological devices, have attracted significant interests in recent years. This is motivated by the clinical and basic science research requirement of obtaining more detailed physiological and pathological information of the body for establishing localized genesis and progression of diseases. Current research is also motivated by the fact that medical imaging is increasingly moving from a primarily diagnostic modality towards a therapeutic and interventional aid, driven by streamlining the diagnostic and therapeutic processes for human diseases by means of imaging modalities and robotic assisted surgery.
The 5th International
Workshop on Medical Imaging and Augmented Reality, MIAR 2010, will be held on
September 19-20, 2010. The workshop will be co-located and in conjunction with
MICCAI 2010 at
China National Convention Center
(CNCC), Beijing, China.
The aim of MIAR is to bring together researchers in computer vision,
graphics, robotics, and medical imaging to present the state-of-the-art
developments in this ever-growing research area. We also encourage a broad
interpretation of the field: from macroscopic to molecular imaging, passing
the information on to scientists and engineers to develop breakthrough
therapeutics, diagnostics, and medical devices, which can then be seamlessly
delivered back to patients. The meeting will consist of a single track of
oral/poster presentations. Papers presenting original research in the
following research topics are being sought.
Topics to be addressed in MIAR 2010 include, but not limited to:
* Medical Image Formation, Analysis and Interpretation
* Augmented Reality and
* Computer Assisted Intervention, Interventional
* Systematic E
xtra- and I
* General Biological and Neuroscience Image Computing
* Patient Specific Modeling and Medical Image Understanding
Details of topics
Submission of Papers:
MIAR 2010 proceedings will be published as a volume in the
Lecture Notes in
Computer Science (LNCS) series.
We invite electronic submissions for MIAR 2010 (LNCS style) of
papers for oral or poster presentation.
Please refer to the
Springer website for detailed instructions.
Papers will be
reviewed by members of the program review committee and assessed for quality
and best means of presentation. Further informations
available on the conference website
