9th International Workshop on Biomedical Image Registration

June 16 and 17, 2020
Portorož, Slovenia

Come, share, enjoy!

Dear Colleagues,

we welcome you to Portorož, Slovenia, for the 9th International Workshop on Biomedical Image Registration, WBIR2020! The workshop will be held in the Congress Centre Bernardin in Portorož, on 16 and 17 June, 2020.

The workshop brings together leading researchers in the area of biomedical image registration to present and discuss recent developments in the field, including methodological innovations and advances in the performance and validation on existing and novel applications. The workshop will include both oral and poster presentations, exciting keynote lectures, all with ample opportunities for discussion.

At the social events you will enjoy the warm and relaxing Adriatic seaside along with authentic Mediterranean cuisine and excellent drinks.

We are looking forward to meeting you in Portorož,

Žiga Špiclin
Jamie McClelland
Jan Kybic

Aims & Scope

The scientific program of WBIR 2020 is in your hands.
We invite submissions in all areas of biomedical image registration.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Novel registration methodology
2D/3D/4D, spatiotemporal/dynamic, pairwise / groupwise, slice-to-volume, projective, single/multi-modal, intra/inter-subject, model-based, patch-based, multi-channel, tracking
Mathematical aspects of image registration
continuous/discrete optimization, real-time, similarity measures, diffeomorphisms, LDDMM, stationary velocity, inverse consistency, multi-scale
Machine learning and deep learning techniques for registration
unsupervised / supervised / reinforcement learning, convolutional / recurrent / transformer networks, neural networks for feature extraction and matching, correspondence weighting and prediction, attention modeling, deformation learning, deep encoder-decoder networks
Biomedical applications of registration
computer-assisted interventions, image-guided therapy, treatment planning/delivery, diagnosis/prognosis, atlas-based segmentation, label fusion, histopathology correlation, serial studies, pathology detection and localization, morphometry, biomechanics, image retrieval/restoration/fusion, imaging biomarkers for precision medicine, radiomics & radiogenomics, early proofs of concept
Validation of registration
quantitative and qualitative methods, benchmarking, comparison studies, phantom studies, correlation to outcome, validation protocols and performance metrics, uncertainty estimation

All accepted full paper submissions will be published as a volume in the Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).
