A member of TIG is co-editing a Computer Vision and Image Understanding special issue on Probabilistic Models for Biomedical Image Analysis. This special issue aims at bridging the gap between researchers in computer vision, biomedical image analysis and machine learning by providing a platform for the exploration of probabilistic modeling approaches for difficult clinical problems within a variety of biomedical imaging context.

We are co-organising BAMBI'14. The workshop will take place in Boston as a satelite workshop of MICCAI 2014. The goal is to highlight the potential of using Bayesian or random field graphical models for advancing scientific research in biomedical image analysis. The program will consist of three keynote talks, from prominent figures in the community, and the presentation of previously unpublished and contributive papers. See more information here

The 24th biennial international conference on Information Processing in Medical Imaging (IPMI 2015) will be held at the Sabhal Mor Ostaig College on the Isle of Skye, Scotland, June 28 - July 3, 2015. This conference is the latest in a series where novel developments in the acquisition, formation, analysis and display of medical images are presented, discussed, dissected, and extended.

WBIR'14 will take place at UCL in July. The proceedings are now online and can be accessed from the Springer website. You could still register and attend to the conference, see the workshop website for more information.

On the 31st May, The Guardian published an article entitled "Tiny £10m robot hand could transform spina bifida surgery in the womb" announcing our newly funded project!

This year we had 9 papers accepted for presentation at MICCAI 2014. See you in Boston in September.

On the 15th May, Tom Vercauteren joined TIG and CMIC as a Senior Lecturer. Tom was previously New Technologies Manager at Mauna Kea Technologies. Tom is bringing to the lab a wealth of expertise in medical image analysis and medical devices development.

The 6th International Workshop on Biomedical Image Registration will be hosted in University College London, UK on the 7th and 8th of July 2014. The website can be found here. The Workshop on Biomedical Image Registration aims to bring together leading researchers in the area of biomedical image registration to present and discuss recent developments in the field. The format of the two-day workshop will include both oral and poster presentations and ample opportunities for discussion.
