MIUA 2017 is the 21st conference of the Medical Image Understanding and Analysis series organised in the United Kingdom for communicating research progress within the community interested in biomedical image analysis.

Paper submission is now open for the conference which will take place in Edinburgh from 11-13 July 2017.

For the first time, in addition to the traditional full technical papers, MIUA is calling for clinical abstracts on applications of medical image analysis (for example, applications to studies of cognitive ageing, clinical applications, etc.).

Technical papers

Authors are invited to submit full papers of length between 8 and 12 pages (1 column – LNCS Springer format) showing original research contributions under the topics of the conference. On this occasion, the conference proceedings will be published in the Springer CCIS – Communications in Computer and Information Science.

A selection of the best papers will be invited to submit an extended version to the special issue “Selected papers from MIUA 2017” of the Journal of Imaging.

Clinical abstracts

Authors are invited to submit clinical abstracts that fit on one A4 page. Accepted clinical abstracts will be included in the conference proceedings and, therefore, published online. In the conference, they will be presented as traditional posters in portrait A0 format. A selection of abstracts will be also invited for 2-minute oral presentations in a dedicated session at the event.

The paper submission deadline is 24 February 2017.

To submit, either e-mail to MIUA.2017@ed.ac.uk or complete the form https://miua2017.wordpress.com/abstracts/
