Research in MIA takes an interdisciplinary approach involving various specialized disciplines such as pattern analysis, signal processing, computer vision, data mining, machine learning etc. This workshop is meant to be a platform where young researchers and students gain important insights in medical image analysis from experts across various but related disciplines.
Intermingling and networking of domain experts in computer science, existing MIA experts from academia and industry, and medical practitioners.
Microscopy image processing has been used for various diagnostic applications such as automatic screening of PAP smear images, automation of WBC differential count, measurement of DNA content in tumor cells, and the analysis of chromosomes. Although the automation of these applications have met with some amount of success, there remains a very large gap for reliable automatic diagnosis in real-world scenarios. This edition of WMLMIA aims to explore the various challenges and recent developments in microscopy imaging. The topics covered in the workshop will range from introduction to medical image analysis and machine learning, to specific problems in microscopy imaging and some of the approaches to solve them. It will also include perspectives from industry working in medical imaging, and medical professionals, which will provide a complete picture on the area.
