BMVA Symposium: Computer Vision in Cancer
Chairs: Greg Slabaugh & Constantino Carlos Reyes-Aldasoro (City, University of London)
Keynote speakers: Julia Schabel (King’s College London), Nasir Rajpoot (Warwick) & Yinyin Yuan (Institute for Cancer Research)
Call for Papers:
This BMVA one-day meeting will present state-of-the-art developments in Computer Vision applied to Cancer Data Analysis.
Recent progress in imaging hardware, acquisition techniques, and algorithmic processing of data have led to advances in detection, diagnosis, staging, treatment, and follow-up in cancer-related clinical workflows, as well as fundamental understanding of cancer modelling and dynamics. Cancer imaging includes varied modalities, and numerous scales including nano, micro, and macro.
This one-day meeting will be dedicated to technical advances that have potential for clinical relevance, and seeks to bring together a collection of recently developed approaches in this domain. We hope the methods presented will inspire future research both from theoretical and practical viewpoints to spur further advances in the field.
The topics include, but are not limited to:
• segmentation in cancer imaging: from cellular structures to cells to lesions to tumours
• tracking of cells in metastasis and migration processes
• registration of cancer images
• histopathology image analysis
• modelling of cancer cells, vasculature and cancerous processes
• image-based interventional techniques for cancer treatment
• tissue characterisation from images
All those interested in presenting at this meeting are invited to submit a summary of their talk

Invitation of Papers:
Selected papers of the meeting will be invited to submit an extended version to be included in a special issue of IET Computer Vision.
