Special track call for papers
Image processing for ophthalmology:
challenges in retinal analysis and related fields

During the last decade, retinal image analysis has been making steady progress towards applications in clinical practice. Various research and commercial software tools have emerged for screening, lesion detection and quantification, and biomarker discovery. A mounting volume of data and annotations is becoming accessible to research groups, and several public repository of test data have appeared on the Internet. With steadily increasing computer-aided support, the eye is even more than before a window on the whole human body. Retinal image analysis is maturing as a field, building on foundational years of work on automated detection and representation of retinal landmarks and lesions alike. High-quality papers are invited for this special track in, but not limited to, the following areas:

  • Detection and measurement of retinal vessels
  • Segmentation of retinal regions of interest
  • Retinal lesion detection and quantification
  • 2D and 3D modelling and reconstruction
  • Image registration
  • Feature extraction and selection
  • Multispectral analysis
  • Synthetic and simulated retinal images
  • Modelling and analysis of OCT data
  • Modelling and analysis of retinal angiographic sequences
  • Clinical perspectives and experience

Prospective authors are expected to submit original, unpublished contributions which must not be under review elsewhere. For paper preparation and submission instructions please refer to the submission guidelines on the general CBMS site. Submission of a paper implies acceptance that at least one of the authors will register and present the paper at the special track. All papers will be peer-reviewed by at least two independent referees.

Both PDF and TXT versions of this CfP are available, too.
