Following the success of the first edition of the Workshop on Bioimage Computing (BIC) at CVPR 2015 we organize the second edition of BIC in conjunction with ECCV 2016.
Bioimage computing has known a tremendous development in recent years. State-of-the-art light microscopy (LM) can deliver 2D and 3D image sequences of living cells with unprecedented image quality and ever growing resolution in space and time. The emergence of novel diverse LM modalities has provided biologists with formidable means to explore cell mechanisms, embryogenesis, or neural development, to quote just a few fundamental biological issues. Electron microscopy (EM) supplies information on the cell structure down to the nanometer resolution. Correlating LM and EM at the microscopic level, and both with animal behavior at the macroscopic level, is of paramount importance. In the face of huge data sets, at a size of multiple terabytes per volume or video, and exceedingly difficult problems, state-of-the-art computer vision are required and need to be further developed.
This workshop aims to bring the latest challenges in bioimage computing to the computer vision community members, while allowing them to know more about the specificities of bioimage computing and its current achievements. This includes important issues related to image modeling, denoising, super-resolution, multi-scale segmentation, motion estimation, image registration, tracking, classification, event detection, topics which appertain to the computer vision field.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- LM and EM image restoration and reconstruction
- Segmentation of subcellular objects, cells, and animals
- Dense motion estimation in 2D and 3D LM image sequences
- Diffusion computation
- 3D registration between bioimage stacks
- Multimodal image analysis (correlative light and electron microscopy, various LM modalities)
- Tracking of particles, cells, and animals
- Automated behavior recognition
- Quantitative bioimaging
Papers should adhere to the ECCV 2016 proceedings style requirements and must be submitted online via our CMT paper submission system. See our submission page for details.
