COVID-19 Update

Due to future uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, we have regretfully decided to cancel the physical meeting this year and move MIUA 2021 to a virtual context. The safety and well-being of MIUA participants is our top priority, therefore we believe that fully virtual meeting is the only viable option to run this conference smoothly.

As MIUA 2021 goes virtual this year, we will be using a virtual events platform across all three days, which will enable all of us to meet virtually, present the accepted papers and moderate live question and answer sessions, and deliver associated seminars and tutorials. The detailed schedule and guidelines about presentation will be released in due course. The conference registration fee will be reduced to reflect this change.

We appreciate the work that has gone into preparing contributions, hence we are still welcoming paper submissions until 28th March 2021 using our online submission system. Please note that this deadline is final and no further extensions can be granted at this point. All submissions will be peer-reviewed and accepted articles will be published as MIUA Proceedings by the Springer Publishing Group.

Thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to delivering MIUA 2021 in a way that is rewarding for our authors and interesting for the research community as a whole.

Scope

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 including among others:

Brain imaging Cancer Cardiac Imaging Circulation and Microcirculation
Computational anatomy and physiology Computed Tomography Dermatology Imaging Physics
In-vivo intravital imaging Inflammation Magnetic Resonance Imaging Microscopy
Neurology Novel Imaging Methods Ophthalmology Optical Imaging
Positron Emission Imaging Radiology Tissue Perfusion Ultrasound

Paper Submissions:
For the 25th 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.
