We gladly announce the workshop on Shape in Medical Imaging (ShapeMI), which is held in conjunction with the conference on Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Interventions (MICCAI 2020) in Lima, Peru. The data is still TBD. This workshop is the second instance of ShapeMI, after a successful ShapeMI'18. The goal of this workshop continues being a venue for the presentation of the leading methods and applications for advanced shape analysis and geometric learning in medical imaging. It will provide a venue for researchers working in shape/geometric modeling, learning, analysis, statistics, classification and applications to share novel ideas, to present recent research results and to interact with each other. Today’s image data usually represents 3D geometric structures, often describing continuous and time-varying phenomena. Therefore, shape and geometry processing methods have been receiving increased attention, for example, due to their higher sensitivity to local variations relative to traditional markers, such as the volume of a structure. Shape and spectral analysis, learning and modeling algorithms, as well as application-driven research are at the focus of this workshop. In Medical Image Computing or Computer Aided Intervention, the understanding of shapes and their geometrical representations enables the modeling and analysis of organs, of anatomical or functional structures, as well as of high-dimensional structures in datasets representing population or disease data.

(new) 2020 Proceedings


This workshop targets theoretical contributions as well as exciting applications in medical imaging, including (but not limited to):

Academic objectives

This workshops aims at bringing together medical imaging scientists to discuss novel approaches and application in shape and geometry processing and their use in research and clinical studies and applications. Another aim is to explore novel, cutting-edge theoretical methods and their usefulness for medical applications, such as from the fields of geometric learning or spectral shape analysis. As a single-track workshop, ShapeMI will feature excellent keynote speakers, technical paper presentations and demonstrations of state-of-the-art software for shape processing in medical research.
