UPDATE: Due to spread of the COVID-19 Coronavirus, the 2020 SINAPSE Annual Scientific Meeting will be held as a virtual meeting.

Join us online on 19 June 2020 to keep abreast of developments in clinical and experimental imaging, and learn about research based around MRI, CT, PET, SPECT, EEG, MEG, ultrasound, and human optical imaging.

 

The first virtual instalment of the SINAPSE Annual Scientific Meeting will be hosted using Hopin, an online event platform chosen by the SINAPSE Executive Committee on the basis of its functionality in replicating as much of the interactivity (between and among delegates, exhibitors, and presenters) of an in-person event as possible.

With Hopin, our ASM will have:

  • a main stage for plenary sessions
  • breakout rooms for parallel sessions and virtual poster presentations
  • an expo area for virtual exhibitor booths

We have also allocated time between sessions in the meeting programme for speed networking, which will pair event participants for one-to-one video chats, similar to the experience of striking up conversations with fellow meeting attendees during coffee breaks at in-person meetings.

 

Programme

We are delighted to welcome Prof Uta Noppeney from Radboud University as our keynote speaker. Additional invited talks include updates on the pan-Scotland iCAIRD and PICTURES projects and a timely presentation on chest imaging in COVID-19.

The meeting programme [click heading above to view] also features stimulating presentations from SINAPSE members in plenary talks, interactive poster sessions, and parallel sessions on Image Analysis and Methods Development topics.

5 RCR CPD credits are awarded.

  • The meeting starts at 9:00AM, but the Hopin event page will open at 8:45AM to allow plenty of time for delegates to sign in and take an initial look around the online platform.

 

Registration

ASM registration this year is free to all. Click heading above for instructions on how to register and information on what to expect from a virtual meeting.

Earlier plans for our first two-day SINAPSE ASM to take place this year in St Andrews are being postponed to June 2021. For those who already booked overnight accommodation at Agnes Blackadder Hall for this June, full refunds are being processed by the Accommodation, Conferences and Events team at University of St Andrews.

The conference has a broad scope including all areas of medical image analysis and computer-assisted intervention where deep learning is a key element.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Semantic segmentation of medical images
  • Learning based image registration
  • Computer-aided detection and diagnosis
  • Image acquisition, reconstruction and synthesis
  • Transfer learning and domain adaptation
  • Learning with noisy labels and limited data
  • Unsupervised deep learning and representation learning
  • Uncertainty estimation for medical diagnosis
  • Interpretability and explainable deep learning
  • Integration of imaging and clinical data
  • Validation studies and deep learning applications in radiology, pathology, endoscopy, dermatology, ophthalmology, and beyond
Conference submissions follow two tracks: full conference papers and extended abstracts. All accepted submissions will be published as a volume in the Proceedings of Machine Learning Research. The best accepted full conference papers will be invited for submission to a special issue of Medical Image Analysis, a top journal in the field.

 

Full conference papers contain well-validated applications or methodological contributions of deep learning algorithms in medical imaging. Full papers will go through a single-blind peer-reviewing process via OpenReview. All accepted papers will be presented as posters with a selection of these papers will also be invited for oral presentation.
  • Submission deadline: 13 December 2018
Extended abstracts are up to 3 pages (excluding references and acknowledgements) and can, for example, focus on preliminary novel methodological ideas without extensive validation. We also specifically accept extended abstracts of recently published or submitted journal contributions to give authors the opportunity to present their work and obtain feedback from the community. Selection of abstracts is performed via a lightweight single-blind review process via OpenReview. All accepted abstracts will be presented as posters at the conference.

    At the 2nd PiW International Meeting, Prof Terry Jones will be talking about his newest cutting-edge research project: the EXPLORER scanner. Prof Jones is a Clinical Professor of Diagnostic Radiology at the University of California Davis, USA. He has over 50 years of experience in PET imaging and, among many life-time achievements, he was responsible for installing one of Britain’s first PET scanners at the Hammersmith Hospital in 1979. He also developed a technique of breathing oxygen-15 (radioactive oxygen) to image the brain’s metabolism – a technique which he tried on himself to create the first image. Prof Jones is the ultimate PET enthusiast and will be sharing with us his latest research on the EXPLORER, the first clinical whole-body PET scanner in the world.

    At the meeting, Dr Mark MacAskill, University of Edinburgh, will also be speaking on the development of a new and promising PET radiotracer for imaging inflammation non-invasively and Mr Tim Morgan, University of Glasgow, will talk on synthesis of novel compounds as potential PET radiotracers for imaging myelination and demyelination in vivo.

    This is truly a translational meeting covering exciting research on PET imaging from the chemistry bench to man! And connecting researchers in Scotland and the other side of the Atlantic!

    UPDATE: this event is being moved to a virtual format due to spread of the COVID-19 Coronavirus.

    The MIDL conference aims to be a forum for deep learning researchers, clinicians and health-care companies to take a leap in the application of deep learning based automatic image analysis in disease screening, diagnosis, prognosis, treatment selection and treatment monitoring.

    The conference has a broad scope including topics such as computer-aided screening and diagnosis, detection, segmentation, (multi-modal) registration, image reconstruction and synthesis. Furthermore, we discuss issues such as the need for large curated and annotated datasets, noisy reference standards, and the high-dimensionality of medical data. Software demonstrations, presentation of medical data sets and innovative clinical applications are also covered as focus points for integration of deep learning algorithms in clinical practice.

    MIDL currently offers a three-day program with keynote presentations from invited speakers, oral presentations, posters, and live demonstrations of deep learning algorithms from academia and industry.

    Conference submissions follow two tracks: full conference papers and short papers. All accepted full papers will be published as a volume in the Proceedings of Machine Learning Research.


    Full papers contain methodological developments or well-validated applications of deep learning algorithms in medical imaging. The papers will go through a full, double-blind reviewing process via OpenReview, with a two-week period for author rebuttal and discussion. A selection of full papers will be invited for oral presentation, whereas the rest will be assigned a poster presentation.

    Short papers are up to 3 pages and can, for example, focus on novel methodological ideas without extensive validation. We also specifically accept short papers discussing recently published or submitted journal contributions to give authors the opportunity to present their work and obtain feedback from conference attendees. Selection of short papers is based on a light double-blind review process via OpenReview, without a discussion period. All accepted short papers will be presented as posters at the conference.

    Full and short papers have the same deadlines:

    • Paper registration deadline: 24 January 2020
    • Paper submission deadline: 30 January 2020

      'Brain Health: a small matter of the blood vessels' public lecture

      The human brain is like a very complex computer, possibly the most sophisticated biological structure in the known universe. It needs a lot of energy and oxygen to work. How does it get this? Can it store energy? Where does the waste go and how does it get out? Can there really be 650 km of blood vessels inside every brain?

      In this Christmas lecture, Prof Joanna Wardlaw will speak about some of the clever ways that the blood vessel and brain cells work together to deliver the right amounts of energy and remove waste products. Do the brain blood vessels do more than that to help the brain? And why it is that when diseases of the brain blood vessels are amongst the commonest and most devastating in the whole world, do we still know so little about what goes wrong with them and how to make it better? Prof Wardlaw will explain some of the ways in which researchers are trying to make brain blood vessel diseases less troublesome.

      Prof Joanna Wardlaw, CBE, FMedSci, FRSE, is Professor of Applied Neuroimaging and Consultant Neuroradiologist at the University of Edinburgh and NHS Lothian. She is a Principal Researcher in the new UK Dementia Research Institute at the University of Edinburgh. She has worked for many years to understand the brain and its blood supply, and on treatments to improve blood flow to the brain, such as the clotbusting drugs now used routinely to treat acute stroke.

      Summary of event

      Neuroimaging has advanced such that functional magnetic resonance imaging can reveal explicitly an individual's thought patterns. This raises ethical and practical questions that society needs to address e.g. Who should see our brain images? Should neuroimaging be used as evidence in court, in commerce, or by governments? The key objectives of this programme will be to explore the ethical impact of neuroimaging on society. By stimulating debate and gathering opinion between the general public, societal groups (patients, prisoners), scientists, clinicians, ethicists, legal experts and politicians, we will raise awareness of privacy and ethical issues, determine a cross-section of opinion, and through engagement of users and policy makers, publish reports to guide policy outcomes.

        Workshops:

        Radiosynthesis Automation: This workshop will focus on how we can automate a radiosynthetic procedure for tracer production. We will start with a small lecture on automation in general. Then you continue in smaller groups where you will learn to program an automated synthesis sequence on one of the available synthesis modules. At the end of the workshop the programs will be tested on the synthesis modules to see if they are successful.

        In Vitro and In Vivo PET Tracer Evaluation: This workshop is on the evaluation of a known PET tracer. You will work in small groups and be asked to analyze the raw data (in vitro / in vivo) of a given dataset. You will present your results and interpretation of the data at the end of the workshop to conclude if the tracer should be used for further investigations.

        PET Tracer Development from Scratch: In this workshop you will work in small groups on the design of a novel PET tracer. You have to design a radiosynthesis for a given molecule including a way to synthesize the required precursor. At the end of the workshop you will present, with your group, the proposed radiolabeling and how you would synthesize the precursor.

        The aim of this workshop is to gather specialists on Numerical Methods, High Performance Computing, Inverse Problems, Microwave Imaging.
        Microwave Tomography is a novel, early stage development way of imaging with a number of potentially attractive medical applications. In particular, Microwave imaging (MI) of the human head (used especially in the detection of strokes) has attracted a significant research interest in the latest years mainly oriented on the design of antenna elements and arrays, imaging using ultra-wide band radar techniques, and real-time monitoring. The accurate reconstruction of the properties of the head tissues (which allow the differentiation between ill and healthy ones) relies heavily on precise mathematical and numerical modeling (involving inverse problems, high order approximation methods and fast solution techniques of large scale problems) of the interaction between electromagnetic waves and the human body in high frequency regime.
        The three challenges addressed by these applications are:
        • Methodological and numerical development robust inversion tools, associated with the numerical solution of the electromagnetic forward problem.
        • Development of general parallel open source simulation codes, based on the high-level integrated development environments, using the state-of-art high order methods and solution techniques for modeling the scattering of arbitrary electromagnetic waves in highly heterogeneous media, over a wide frequency range in the microwave domain.
        • Design of antenna elements and arrays and simulations using anatomical phantoms
        This workshop will bring together Applied Mathematicians, Computational Scientists and Engineers, specialists in different aspects of wave propagation phenomena.

        Connectomics is the study of whole brain association maps, i.e., the connectome, with a focus on understanding, quantifying, and visualizing brain network organization. Connectomics research is of interest to the neuroscientific community largely because of its potential to understand human cognition, its variation over development and aging, and its alteration in disease or injury. As such, big data in connectomics are rapidly growing with emerging international research initiatives collecting large, high quality brain images with structural, diffusion and functional imaging modalities. CNI aims to propel research which leverages this increasing wealth of connectomic data. CNI will bring together computational researchers (computer scientists, data scientists, computational neuroscientists) to discuss advancements in connectome construction, analysis, visualization and their use in clinical diagnosis and group comparison studies.

        CNI aims to unify computational researchers with neuroscientists and cultivate interactions toward translational applications for the clinic. For the 3rd year, CNI will feature a single-track workshop with keynote speakers, technical paper presentations and poster sessions.

        Call for papers (submission deadline: 28 July 2019)

        In conjunction, CNI will host the first MICCAI challenge on functional connectomics, with collaborators at the Kennedy Krieger Institute in Baltimore, MD, USA.

        Fellow research pool SICSA, the Scottish Informatics and Computer Science Alliance, is holding its annual conference online this year under the theme SICSA and the Sustainable Society. Participation in the event is invited from other research pools across Scotland, to bring together a large community of people to discuss the Computing and interdisciplinary challenges ahead.

        The SICSA Conference schedule includes a track of jointly developed sessions with a focus on research themes and challenges that have the genuine potential to span disciplines and initiate the discussions that will lead to a research roadmap that engages multiple disciplines in addressing them.

        SINAPSE is delighted to be co-organising a session in this track on Data Sciences and Brain Health across the Life Course along with the Life Sciences research pool SULSA, the Scottish Dementia Research Consortium (SDRC) and SICSA.

        This session will address multidisciplinary challenges in the early detection of neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimer's disease, and new opportunities to build capacity in Scotland by integrating data science with brain health research areas of neurobiology and neuroimaging. Brief presentations will be given by a panel of researchers who are working to develop new collaborations across disciplinary boundaries of clinical brain research, preclinical brain research, and computing science, followed by open discussion with session participants.

        • Gerry Thompson, Senior Clinical Lecturer in Radiology at University of Edinburgh and Honorary Consultant Neuroradiologist for NHS Lothian, will represent SINAPSE with a presentation on brain imaging data for dementia biomarker discovery.
        • Bettina Platt, Chair in Translational Neuroscience at University of Aberdeen, will represent SULSA with a presentation on translational, multidisciplinary approaches in dementia research, from experimental to (pre-)clinical domains.
        • Mike Chantler, Professor of Computer Science at Heriot-Watt University, will represent SICSA with a presentation on topic modelling and data visualisation to identify content and trends within large free-text datasets. Examples will include models of 60,000 Covid publications and UKRI grants databases.
        • Graciela Muniz Terrera, Senior Lecturer in Biostatistics and Epidemiology at University of Edinburgh, will represent SDRC with a presentation on challenges that remain for delivering clinical impact from predictive models of brain health and dementia risk.

        SINAPSE, SULSA, SICSA and SDRC are jointly initiating an interdisciplinary brain health research network to enable advancements in innovative computational and mathematical methods for dementia prediction, analysis, and modelling which will be applicable in a routine healthcare setting. After the panellists' presentations on their respective research areas, aims for new collaborations bringing together these separate research communities will be outlined and the remainder of the session will be open for collective ideation and conversation. Hot topics within the neurodegeneration research pathway from lab bench to patient will be identified through discussion, and associated with skills needs from computing science. The session organisers plan to fund a series of sandpits in these areas as an outcome.

        Aims and Objectives

        To convene a group of world experts in all aspects of creating, curating, and using brain image banks, particularly of normal individuals, to discuss:

        • Philosophical and biological issues such as ‘What is normal”, how to facilitate potential clinical and research uses of brain image banks and atlases. Technical issues such as between scanner variation, user access and portals, database infrastructures, statistical issues in image processing and atlas creation, ways to facilitate harmonisation of images and metadata between existing and future planned brain image banks, data sharing, maximization of potential extractable information and impact.

        • Legal and ethical issues such as privacy, anonymisation, ‘research tourism’, secondary uses.

        • Encourage brain image banks to be compatible world-wide.

        • Facilitate ways to contribute imaging collected in publicly funded research or in clinical practice, where appropriate, to brain image banks and made easily accessible.

        • Facilitate discussion between image banks in different countries, including to support existing harmonisation initiatives

        It is expected, by the end of the meeting, to produce a consensus statement on the future of brain image banks for clinical and research use world-wide (including managing incidental findings, harmonising metadata, practical, ethical and governance issues), to be submitted for publication.

        A particular focus will be the immediate need for strategy for the UK to benefit from its recent and planned substantial investments in neuroimaging of large population cohorts of different ages. This workshop provides a prime environment in which to design such a resource.

        Participants will be pseudo-randomly assigned to groups for discussion sessions, ensuring an equal balance of expertise; each work group will have a chair, scribe and spokesperson; the feedback sessions will have a moderator; a full provisional list of participants will be available.

        UPDATE: this event is being moved to a virtual format due to spread of the COVID-19 Coronavirus.

        Disentangled representation learning has been proposed as an approach to learning general representations. This can be done in the absence of annotations, or with limited annotation. A good general representation can be readily fine-tuned for new target tasks using modest amounts of data. This alleviation of the data and annotation requirements offers tantalising prospects for tractable and affordable healthcare. Finally, disentangled representations can offer model explainability, increasing their suitability for real-world deployment.

        In this half-day tutorial, a satellite event in conjunction with MICCAI 2020, we will offer an overview of representation learning and disentangled representation learning and criteria, and discuss applications in medical imaging. We will conclude with open ended challenges.

        The aims of this symposium were to bring together the stakeholders in research imaging management including range of professionals from research imaging centres, professional organisations whose members use imaging in research, ethicists, research funders and regulatory bodies. The meeting discussed and highlighted the magnitude and potential implications of incidental findings. It provided information concerning good practice in managing incidental findings in research imaging of both "normal" volunteers and patients and consequently highlighted issues related to ethics. The meeting enabled current opinions to be summarised on concerns about practical aspects of managing incidental findings. It also helped facilitate the production of a position statement and guideline to encourage best imaging research practice in the UK, within practical limitations, to facilitate future imaging research. A report summarizing the evidence presented and the conclusions drawn at the meeting is available below.

        As part of a grant received from The Royal Society to study the feasibility of using neural networks to improve resolution of MRS data using high resolution MRI, this workshop has been organised to disseminate and discuss new ideas and related research on the theme of reconstruction schemes for MR data.

        We are in an era of digital revolution that is driving the development of new kinds of sensing, communication and information representation systems with demands of ever-increasing fidelity and resolution. This is commonly achieved by means of compressing or reducing in some way the information acquired. The high fidelity reconstruction of compressed and low-resolution signals has been one of the forefront areas of research nowadays. This half-day workshop will explore avenues to increase, by means of computational algorithms, the resolution of MR data.
