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.
