MIUA is a UK-based international conference for the communication of image processing and analysis research and its application to medical imaging and biomedicine. This is a rapidly growing subject with ever increasing real-world applicability.

MIUA welcomes all researchers in medical imaging including mathematicians, computer scientists, bioinformaticians, clinicians, engineers and bioscientists.

MIUA is the principal UK forum for communicating research progress within the community interested in image analysis applied to medicine and related biological science. The meeting is designed for the dissemination and discussion of research in medical image understanding and analysis, and aims to encourage the growth and raise the profile of this multi-disciplinary field by bringing together the various communities. MIUA covers many topics in medical imaging including:

Biomarker Discovery Brain Imaging Cancer Cardiac Imaging
Circulation and Microcirculation Computational anatomy and physiology Computed Tomography Deep Learning
Dermatology Image Interpretation Image Guided Intervention Image Physics
In-Vivo Intravital Imaging Inflammation Machine Learning Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Microscopy Multi Modal Image Analysis Neurology Novel Imaging Methods
Perception Modelling & Simulation Positron Emission Imaging Ophthalmology Optical Imaging
Radiology Texture Analysis Tissue Perfusion Ultrasound


Details about the Programme, Registration and Venue will be available later in 2021.

If you would like to be kept up to date, please contact us and we will send you details as they are developed.

Prof. Alejandro Frangi

Diamond Jubilee Chair in Computational Medicine at the University of Leeds

Biography: Professor Frangi is Diamond Jubilee Chair in Computational Medicine and Royal Academy of Engineering Chair in Emerging Technologies at the University of Leeds, Leeds, UK, with joint appointments at the School of Computing and the School of Medicine. He directs the CISTIB Center for Computational Imaging and Simulation Technologies in Biomedicine. He is Turing Fellow of the Alan Turing Institute. Prof. Frangi is the Scientific Director of the Leeds Centre for HealthTech Innovation and Director of Research and Innovation of the Leeds Institute for Data Analytics.

Prof. Polina Golland

Professor of EECS and principal investigator in the CSAIL at MIT

Prof. Polina Golland

Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) and principal investigator in the CSAIL at MIT

Biography: Professor Polina Golland is a Henry Ellis Warren (1894) professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) and a principal investigator in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) at MIT. Her primary research interest is in developing novel techniques for biomedical image analysis and understanding. She particularly enjoys working on algorithms that either explore the geometry of the world and the imaging process in a new way or improve image-based inference through statistical modeling of the image data. She is interested in shape modeling and representation, predictive modeling and visualization of statistical models. Her current research focuses on developing statistical analysis methods for characterization of biological processes based on image information. In this domain, She is interested in modeling biological shape and function, how they relate to each other and vary across individuals.

Prof. Sotirios Tsaftaris

Chair (Full Professor) in Machine Learning and Computer Vision at the University of Edinburgh

Prof. Sotirios Tsaftaris

Chair (Full Professor) in Machine Learning and Computer Vision at the University of Edinburgh

Biography: Prof. Sotirios Tsaftaris is currently with the University of Edinburgh and the Institute of Digital Communications as a Chair (Full Professor) in Machine Learning and Computer Vision. He holds the Canon Medical/Royal Academy of Engineering Research Chair in Healthcare AI. He is also a Fellow of the Alan Turing Institute. His research interests are machine learning, deep learning, medical image analysis (medical image computing), image processing, and distributed computing. Core research application domains are computer aided diagnosis in medicine and computer vision in agriculture (e.g. plant phenotyping, precision agriculture, agritech and indoor farming).

Call for Papers / Author Instructions

You are invited to submit your abstract paper to MIUA 2022 which will be held in Cambridge, UK. The abstract paper submission system is now open.

The full paper submission deadline will be 23:59, Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), on 1st April 2022.

The abstract paper submission deadline will be 23:59, Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), on 31st May 2022.

High-quality papers are requested, containing original contributions to the topics within the scope of MIUA.

Paper Submissions:
For the 26th MIUA conference, we welcome submissions, as regular conference papers and conference abstracts.

Regular papers: Authors are invited to submit full papers of length between 8 and 15 pages (1 column – the LNCS template) showing original research contributions under the topics of the conference. All submissions will be double-blind peer-reviewed and accepted articles will be published as MIUA Proceedings by the Springer Publishing Group.

Conference abstracts: Authors are invited to submit short papers of length up to 3 pages excluding references (1 column – the LNCS template) showing proof-of-concept research contributions under the topics of the conference. All submissions will be peer-reviewed and accepted articles will be published as MIUA Abstract Proceedings on the MIUA website.

Accepted papers will be published in the MIUA proceedings in the Springer LNCS Series. Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.

MIUA continues to foster fairness, diversity, and inclusion within its community. Submissions from typically underrepresented groups are particularly encouraged.
