    Part of 1993 SPIE/SPSE Symposium on Electronic Imaging
    January 31 - February 5, 1993, San Jose, California, USA

    The large variety of imaging modalities for exploration of objects
    of biomedical interest has led to the necessity for solving many problems
    related to the specific characteristics of the radiation and sensing apparatus
    used. Acquired biomedical images typically suffer from degradation related
    to the physical limitations of the imaging device. These degradations serve to
    complicate the generic goals of analysis and interpretation. This conference
    is devoted to the presentation of new techniques directed towards the improved
    interpretation (interactive or automated) of biomedical images obtained from
    practical systems. Papers are solicited which detail methods for reconstructing
    images from partial information, for correcting image defects, or for
    effectively extracting/analyzing/interpreting practical images of biomedical

    Papers are invited in the following and related areas:

    Biomedical Image Processing

    - Image Reconstruction
    - Image Restoration and Enhancement
    - Feature Enhancement and Extraction in Biomedical Images
    - Biomedical Image Analysis and Interpretation
    - Multi-Dimensional Biomedical Image Processing
    - Motion Analysis in Biomedical Images
    - Multi-Modality Imaging
    - Microscopy Imaging
    - Knowledge-Based Methods

    Special sessions on

    - Three-Dimensional Microscopy
    - Image Processing for Mammography Applications

    Chairs below.

    Important dates:

    Applicants will be notified of acceptance by mid-November.
    Camera-ready abstact is due December 2, 1992
    Manuscript is due January 4, 1993


    The conference will be held in San Jose Convention Center, San Jose,
    California USA, as a part of SPIE/IS&T Symposium on Electronic Imaging.
    This symposium will provide a rich interaction environment because of
    numerous simultaneous conferences (Image Restoration and Enhancement,
    Image Compression, Image Processing and Graphics Hardware, Nonlinear
    Image Processing, Image Understanding, etc.) and because of its location
    in the heart of the Silicon Valley.
