*Computational Bioimaging*

A Special Track of the /7th International Symposium on Visual Computing 


_In recent years extensive research has been performed in the 
visualization and modeling of objects present in digital images. These 
images originate in various areas of science and engineering, including 
medicine, biology, astronomy, and physics. In medicine, for example, 
computational procedures allow us to clearly visualize and model human 
organs captured in magnetic resonance images. These procedures may have 
different purposes, such as 3D shape reconstruction, segmentation, 
motion and deformation analysis, registration, simulation, and enhanced 
The main goal of the proposed Special Track is to bring together 
researchers working in the related fields of Image Acquisition, 
Segmentation, Registration, Tracking, Matching, Shape Reconstruction, 
Motion and Deformation Analysis, Medical Imaging, Software Development, 
Grid, Parallel and High Performing Computing, to discuss and share ideas 
that will lead us to set the major lines of development
for the near future.
Therefore, the proposed Special Track will gather researchers 
representing the various fields of Computational Vision, Computational 
Mechanics, Mathematics, Statistics, and Biomedical Imaging. This track 
intends to contribute to more realistic computational models extracted 
from images of living organisms and attempts to establish a bridge 
between practitioners and researchers from these diverse fields.

_The topics of interest include but are not limited to the following areas:

- Image Processing and Analysis for Computational Bioimaging;
- Segmentation, Reconstruction, Tracking and Motion Analyse in 
Biomedical Images;
- Biomedical Signal and Image Acquisition and Processing;
- Computer Aided Diagnosis, Surgery, Therapy, Treatment and Telemedicine 
- Software Development for Computational Bioimaging;
- Grid and High Performance Computing for Computational Bioimaging.
Paper Submission Procedure:_
Papers submitted to ISVC 2011 Special Track must not have been 
previously published and must not be currently under consideration for 
publication elsewhere. Manuscripts should be submitted in cameraready
format and should not exceed 10 pages, including figures and tables (see 
http://www.isvc.net for details). All papers accepted will appear in the 
symposium proceedings which will be published by *Springer-Verlag in the 
Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.
