Call For Papers

Image Processing and Machine Learning techniques play a fundamental role in the analysis of biomedical data. Computer Aided Detection and Diagnosis tools have the potential to greatly improve several health-related pipelines. These types of tools are often based on Image Processing and Machine Learning techniques. Traditionally, the pipelines are composed of some initial Image Processing steps, followed by a final Machine Learning block that performs a decision. With the advent of Deep Learning, and, for images in particular, Convolutional Neural Networks, several questions arise. Some of them include: Is there a relationship between “old school” techniques and deep ones (e.g. between Gabor Filters and the Filters extracted with Convolutional Neural Networks)? Are traditional image processing pipelines outdated or should they be used in combination with more recent techniques? In terms of interpretability, would health staff be more comfortable with the traditional methods? Are there available sufficiently good explanatory methods to help explain the algorithm to health workers? This thematic session will provide an opportunity to the bioengineering and biomedical community to exchange knowledge and information on the latest advances and challenges in the relationships, and complementarity of Image Processing and Machine Learning methods. We hope to bring together researchers who are interested in the general fields of Image Processing and Machine Learning, especially in its applications to biomedical areas.
