23rd Medical Image Analysis and Understanding Conference

July 24-26, 2018, Liverpool, United Kingdom

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.

Paper Submissions

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.

Submission Deadline: 18 February 2019

Invited Keynote Speakers

We have five exciting keynote talks planned from leaders in the field of medical imaging from the University of North Caroline, Cambridge University, Universität Freiburg,
