MICCAI workshop on Bio- Imaging and Visualization
for Patient-Customized Simulations 2013
September 26, 2013
Nagoya University, Nagoya, Japan

Imaging and Visualization are among the most dynamic and innovative areas of research of the past few decades. Justification of this activity arises from the requirements of important practical applications such as the visualization of computational data, the processing of medical images for assisting medical diagnosis and intervention, and the 3D geometry reconstruction and processing for computer simulations.
Currently, due to the development of more powerful hardware resources, mathematical and physical methods, investigators have been incorporating advanced computational techniques to derive sophisticated methodologies that can better enable the solution of the problems encountered. Consequent to these efforts any effective methodologies have been proposed, validated and some of them have already been integrated into commercial software for computer simulations.
The main goal of this MICCAI workshop on Bio- Imaging and Visualization for Patient-Customized Simulations 2013 ( is to provide a platform for communications among specialists from complementary fields such as signal and image processing, mechanics, computational vision, mathematics, physics, informatics, computer graphics, bio-medical-practice, psychology and industry. Participants in this workshop are going to present and discuss their proposed techniques and methods in the corresponding fields that are related to the workshop topics and explore the translational potentials of these emerging technological fields. This workshop will be an excellent opportunity to refine ideas for future work and to establish constructive cooperation for new and improved solutions of imaging and visualization techniques and modelling methods towards more realistic and efficient computer simulations.
Another important objective of the  MICCAI workshop on Bio- Imaging and Visualization for Patient-Customized Simulations 2013 is to establish a viable connection between software developers, specialist researchers and applied end-users from diverse fields related to Signal Processing, Imaging, Visualization, Biomechanics and Simulation.

Topics of interest include (but are not restricted to):
- Image processing and Analysis for Patient-Customized Simulations;
- Image Enhancement, Segmentation and Description in Patient-Customized Simulations;
- Image based Tracking, Matching and Registration in Patient-Customized Simulations;
- Computer Modelling for Patient-Customized Simulations 
- 3D Shape Reconstruction and Processing in Patient-Customized Simulations;
- Medical Imaging for Patient-Customized Simulations;
- Data Processing, Modelling and Analysis in Patient-Customized Simulations;
- Scientific Visualization for Patient-Customized Simulations;
- Enhanced Visualization in Patient-Customized Simulations;
- Human-Computer Interaction in Patient-Customized Simulations;
- Enhanced and Virtual Reality in Patient-Customized Simulations;
- Software Development for Patient-Customized Simulations;
- Grid Computing in Patient-Customized Simulations;
- Applications of Patient-Customized Simulations.

- The best 6 papers presented in the workshop will be invited to be included as extended versions in a special issue of the Taylor and Francis group “Computer Methods in Biomechanics and Biomedical Engineering: Imaging & Visualization” journal (
- 15 papers presented in the workshop will be select to be include as extended versions in a book dedicated to “Imaging and Visualization for Patient-Customized Simulations” to be published by SPRINGER under the “Lecture Notes in Computational Vision and Biomechanics” book series (

A best paper prize will be given by the workshop organizers to the best paper presented in the workshop.
