Call for Papers

Motivation and Scope

The workshop on mathematical and computational methods in biomedical imaging and image analysis (MCBMIIA2016) focuses on mathematical and computational aspects of biomedical imaging and image analysis and on these relations to computer vision. We call for papers for applications of the methods to anatomy, autopsy, biopsy, physiology and nano-biology. The expected areas for contributions are following. But all aspects of mathematical treatment medical imaging and image analysis are welcome.
  • Combinatorial and probabilistic methods for biomedical imaging and image analysis
  • Optimisation and inverse methods for biomedical imaging and image analysis
  • Discrete and digital geometry and topology for biomedical image analysis
  • Theoretical aspects of multimodal biomedical image analysis
  • Machine learning in multimodal and volumetric biomedical images
  • Methodologies for validation of results without ground truth for medical computer vision
  • Analysis of images captured by high- and low-speed shutter camera
  • Applications to computational precision medicine and nano-biology
In biomedical imaging and image analysis, the researches aim to design systems that assist medical doctors. In contrast, in computer vision researches focus construct machines that see. The forum aims to derive a bridge on this gap from the viewpoints of mathematical and computational aspects in computer vision.


The workshops will be held at Taipei International Convention Center (TICC), the same as the ACCV 2016 main-conference venue.


  1. Paper format: The workshop paper format should follow the guideline for paper submission in ACCV2016 (see, where the page limit is 14 (excluding references) in the LNCS format.
  2. Publication: the workshop papers will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.
  3. Registration:workshop registration will be handled as part of the main conference registration. Each workshop paper requires at least one author's registration. More details will be announced on the ACCV16 homepage. However, unlike the main conference paper, the workshop paper does not need to pay the additional publication fee.
  4. There will be workshop(tutorial)-only registrations -- three kinds of registrations are (i) main conf. (including all workshops), (ii) workshop(tutorial)-only on Nov. 20, (iii) workshop(tutorial)-only on Nov. 24.

Important Dates

Submission deadline 10 August, 2016
Author notification 17 September, 2016
Camera-ready 22 September, 2016
Workshop 24 November, 2016


For the pre-submission from the main conference ACCV2016, please contact to the workshop organisers directly with the pdf of the paper(s) by 25 August GMT 23:59. The contact addresses are
  • imiya (at)
  • xjiang (at)
  • hontani (at)
with SUBJECT re-submission. We will notify the decision by 31 August. The final camera-ready due is the same with normal accepted papers.

Paper Submission

The submission policy of the MCBMIIA2016 follows to the ACCV2016 main conference. For details see here. Each paper should be at most 14 pages long without references. No "squeezing" of text or figures is allowed. If the spaces between figures and text are too narrow, the files will be properly formatted, and the length of pages will be recounted. Following are author instructions for submitting papers for review to MCBMIIA2016.
  • Submitted papers can be up to 14 pages in LNCS style, not including references.
  • Papers with more than 14 pages (excluding references) in LNCS style and papers violating LNCS style will be rejected without review.
  • Only PDF files are accepted (maximum size 20MB) for paper submission.
  • Review will be double-blind so all submissions must be anonymised.
The MCBMIIA2016 submission site is managed by EasyChair Conference System.

The deadline of paper submission is 10 August GMT 23:59.

Accepted Contributions ID

2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 18, 23, 25


For the presentation at the workshop, at least one author of each paper should be register the conference and workshop through the main conference registration site.

We will have three kinds of registrations:
  1. main conference and all workshops (passport),
  2. workshop-only on Nov. 20, and
  3. workshop-only on Nov. 24.

Note that workshop papers do not need to pay a publication fee and that the no-show contributions will not be published in the workshop volume.
