The 9th International Conference on Signal Image Technology & Internet Systems

The 9th International Conference on Signal Image Technology

Workshop on Medical Image and Signal Analysis (MISA 2013) 
co-located with:
The 9th International Conference on SIGNAL IMAGE TECHNOLOGY & INTERNET BASED SYSTEMS, (SITIS 2013)
Kyoto, Japan, December 2-5, 2013

Scope of the workshop
Following developments in device technologies, medical data collected by a variety of modalities provide a wealth of information for diagnosis and other purposes. Clearly, that information is only of use if it has been extracted, processed and analysed appropriately. The International Workshop on Medical Image and Signal Analysis (MISA 2013) aims to provide a forum for current state-of-the-art research that adresses these issues and focusses on medical image and data processing and analysis and related applications.

Topics of interest
High quality submissions are sought; topics include, but are not limited to:

  • medical image analysis and processing
  • medical image acquisition
  • medical image segmentation
  • medical image registration
  • medical image visualisation
  • functional medical imaging
  • multimodal medical imaging
  • medical signal processing
  • medical data compression
  • medical sensors
  • medical communication technologies
  • computer aided diagnosis
  • etc.

Important dates
Submission deadline: September 23, 2013
Acceptance/Reject notification: October 19, 2013 
Camera-ready: October 27, 2013
Author Registration: October 27, 2013

Submission guidelines
All submissions should be in IEEE conference style and PDF format. Papers may not exceed 8 pages. Two extra pages can be purchased. Paper submission will only be online via: Easy Chair ( )
The online system will be used to handle and process all papers and to prepare for the final proceedings. All submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of expression by at least two reviewers. The organizers will examine the reviews and make final paper selections. More details about the submission process can be found on the conference website.

Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings and published by IEEE Computer Society and referenced in IEEE explore and major indexes. The proceedings will be available at the conference. Extended version of selected accepted papers will be considered for publication in major journals.

At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the workshop. Registration must be done on the SITIS website at the time when the author sends the camera-ready copy of the accepted paper to the workshop chair. Workshop registration fee is determined by SITIS. A single registration for the workshop or the conference allows to attend both events.
