apologies for cross-posting and if you have received this announcement 


Dear Colleagues,

I'd like to draw your attention to


*MIUA 2017: 21st Medical Image Understanding and Analysis Conference*


This will take place in Edinburgh (UK) from July 11th – 13th 2017. Paper 
submission deadline will be on February 24th, 2017.

MIUA <https://miua2017.wordpress.com/> is a forum for communicating 
research progress within the community interested in biomedical image 
analysis. Its goals are the dissemination and discussion of research in 
medical image processing and analysis, and aims to encourage the growth 
and raise the profile of this multi-disciplinary field.

The conference constitutes an excellent opportunity to network, generate 
new ideas, establish new collaborations, learn and discuss on different 
topics, listen to proffered speakers of international reputation, 
present and show medical image analysis tools and even experience the 
delights of a genuine Scottish ceilidh!

This year, for the first time, *in addition to the traditional papers*, 
the conference accepts clinical abstracts showing the applicability of 
image analysis methods.
*Accepted full papers* will appear in the conference proceedings and, in 
addition, will be published by Springer  in the Communications in 
Computer and Information Sciences series, Springer CCIS 
<http://www.springer.com/series/7899>, indexed in DBLP, Google Scholar, 
EI-Compendex, Mathematical Reviews, SCImago and Scopus. CCIS volumes are 
also submitted for the inclusion in ISI Proceedings.

*Accepted clinical abstracts* will be only included in the conference 
proceedings and published online. In the conference, they will be 
presented as traditional posters in portrait A0 format. A selection of 
abstracts will be also invited for a 2-minutes oral presentation on a 
dedicated session at the event.

*Technical Paper Submission:*
Papers should describe original and unpublished work on the topics of 
the conference. Prospective authors
should prepare a full paper, written in English, between 8 and 12 pages 
and must submit it electronically.
Further information can be found on the conference website 
Each paper will be blind-reviewed by at least two reviewers and will be 
accepted based on its
originality, significance and clarity. For accepted papers to be 
published, at least one author has to register
and present the work at the conference.

*Clinical Abstract Submission:*
Submitted abstracts should fit on one A4 page. Calibri font with minimum 
font size of 11 is preferred. The page margins should be no less than 1 
cm on left and right hand sides and no less than 2 cm on top and bottom.

be sent via e-mail to miua2017 at ed.ac.uk in MS Word 2013 format.

Abstract format:
The abstract page should contain: Title, Authors and Affiliations, 
Introduction (i.e. Background and Purpose), Methods, Results, Discussion 
(or Conclusion), References and Acknowledgements if any. Tables and 
Figures are optional, and can be included as long as they fit within the
