The scope of the Conference


The automatic analysis of images and signals in medicine, biotechnology,
and chemistry is a challenging and demanding field. Signal-producing
procedures by microscopes, spectrometers and other sensors have found
their way into wide fields of medicine, biotechnology, economy and
environmental analysis. With this arises the problem of the automatic
mass analysis of signal information. Signal-interpreting systems which
generate automatically the desired target statements from the signals
are therefore of compelling necessity. The continuation of mass analyses
on the basis of the classical procedures leads to investments of
proportions that are not feasible. New procedures and system
architectures are therefore required. The scope of conference is to
bring together researcher, practicioners and industry people who are
dealing with mass analysis of images and signals to present and discuss
recent research in these fields. 


The goals of this conference are to: 


provide a forum for identifying important contributions and
opportunities for research on mass data analysis on microscopic images, 

promote the systematic study of how to apply automatic image analysis
and interpretation procedures to that field 

show case applications of mass data analysis in biology, medicine, and


Topics of interest include (but are not limited to): 


Techniques and developments of signal and image producing procedures 

Object matching and object tracking in microscopic and video microscopic

1D, 2D and 3D shape analysis and description 

1D, 2D and 3D feature extraction of texture, structure and location 

Algorithms for 1D, 2D and 3D signal analysis and interpretation 

Image segmentation algorithms 

Parallelization of image analysis and interpretation algorithms 

Semantic tagging of microscopic images 

Applications in medicine, biotechnology, chemistry and others 

Applications in crystallography 

Applications in proteomics 

Applications in 2D and 3D cell images analysis 

Image Acquisition procedures for mass data analysis 


Paper presentations will be interspersed with discussions in which we
characterize, categorize, and discuss the benefits of specific CBR
applications in the health sciences. A wrap-up round table discussion
will summarize the lessons learnt, issues identified, and future
