[visionlist] DLMIA 2015 – a MICCAI workshop

***********************************************CFP – DLMIA 2015 – a MICCAI workshop***********************************************

1st Workshop on Deep Learning in Medical Image Analysis (in conjunction with MICCAI 2015)

Call for Papers

Deep learning has produced promising results outperforming some state-of-the-art approaches for a couple of problems, such as face detection and recognition, speech recognition and image classification. It is expected that these algorithms can have a large impact on medical image analysis applications, such as computer-aided diagnosis, image segmentation, image annotation and retrieval, image registration and multimodal image analysis. However, only a few works have used deep learning methods in the context of medical-oriented applications, such as breast cancer and skin lesion detection, organs recognition and image-based disease identification.

Additionally, there is a little effort on model selection of deep learning techniques, which poses an interesting problem, since we may face hundreds of parameters, being a near-exhaustive search on this high-dimensional search space impractical. The problem gets worse in large image-based datasets, which have been commonly used in several recent papers. Given the large amount of parameters, some authors have argued that a random search may perform satisfactory well for some applications. However, a hand tuning of the parameters may limit our understanding about how well the techniques can generalize and describe data.

Deep Learning in Medical Image Analysis (DLMIA 2015) is the first workshop in conjunction with MICCAI 2015 that aims at fostering the area of computer-aided medical diagnosis, as well as meta-heuristic-based model selection concerning deep learning techniques.
