MMBIA 2012


Mathematical Methods in Biomedical Image Analysis (MMBIA) 2012 is the twelfth in a series of workshops on biomedical image analysis, being held in conjunction with WACV 2012 at Breckenridge, Colorado, USA. The workshop will bring together researchers in computer vision, medical imaging, computational biology, graphics and robotics communities interested in problems that involve mathematical modeling or analysis in biomedical images, which include emerging molecular and cellular images.

The event will invite two distinguished speakers addressing exciting emerging areas in biomedical image analysis.

The event will host a competition for the best paper award, sponsored by Siemens, with certificate and cash prize of $500.
