    Announcement and Call for Papers

    24-29 July 1994, San Diego, CA USA

    Part of SPIE's International Symposium on Optics, Imaging and

    Conference chairs: Fred L. Boolstein Univ. of Michigan
    James S. Duncan Yale University
    Nicolas Lange Natl. Inst. of Health

    Medical imaging has continued to have an increasing impact in both
    diagnosis and treatment of a variety of illnesses and conditions.
    More importantly, however, the field has contributed greatly to the
    underlyiong theoretical basis and application of mathematical
    techniques in imaging. The special requirements of both research and
    clinical medicine have pushed researchers to develop new imaging
    modalities, theoretical frameworks, filtering techniques, segmentation
    methods, and visualization strategies.

    This conference will focus on the application of mathematical and
    statistical methods to medical imaging problems. Papers describing new
    applications, refinements of existing techniques, new theoretical
    models, or application of techniques in new settings are sollicited.

    This year's meeting will focus on topics concerning uncertainty in
    medical imaging, such as:
    * representing variability and abnormality
    * uncertainty associated with segmenting structure
    * variability in measurement from image data.

    In addition, topics may include, but are not limited to:
    * geometric/deformable models
    * surface fitting/registration
    * theoretical models underlying image segmentation
    * algorithms for segmentation, mensuration, and diagnosis
    * image reconstruction
    * optimization
    * variational and finite element methods

    It is planned that panel discussions will be held at the end of a
    number of sessions. Panels will include the chair, the presenters at
    the session, and possibly one or two other experts.

    SUBMISSIONS must include abstracts of approximately 1200 words. Email
    is the preferred (but not exclusive) method of transmission.
    Send submissions by email to:
    or fax one copy to SPIE at: 206-647-1445
    or mail four copies to: SPIE, PO Box 10, Bellingham, WA 98227-0010.

    Abstract due date: 27 december 1993, manuscript: 2 May 1994.
    The proceedings will be vailable at the conference.
    Abstracts should include the following:
    * abstract title, -author listing, -correspondence for each author,
    * submit to Mathematical Methods in Medical Imaging III (Bookstein),
    * presentation (oral or poster), -abstract, -key words, -brief
    biography principal author.
    Applicants will be notified of acceptance by 19 April 1994.
