International medical imaging conference coming to Lincoln

The University of Lincoln, UK, is to host the next Annual Conference in Medical Image Understanding and Analysis (MIUA).

The conference, which takes place from the 15-17 July, provides an opportunity to present and discuss research in medical image understanding and analysis and its real-world applications.

This year’s keynote lectures are delivered by four eminent academics: Professor Brian F. Hutton from University College London; Professor Tim Cootes from the University of Manchester; Professor Alejandro Frangi from the University of Sheffield; and Associate Professor Alfredo Ruggeri from the University of Padua, Italy.

In addition, there will be two pre-conference tutorials by Professor Philip Evans from the University of Surrey and Dr Charalampos Tsoumpas, from the University of Leeds.

The MIUA 2015 conference is being organised by Dr Tryphon Lambrou and Dr Xujiong Ye, from the Laboratory of Vision Engineering (LoVE), based in Lincoln’s School of Computer Science.

The University of Lincoln was chosen to host the 19th MIUA because of its varied and growing research in medical imaging.

MIUA, which took place at Royal Holloway in Egham (near London) in July 2014, will include both oral and poster presentations.

Selected papers will be invited to submit extended version of the papers to an ISI indexed journal.

MyHealthAvatar consortium to meet in Lincoln

Researchers from across Europe are visiting the University of Lincoln as part of a 2.4 million Euro project.

Dr Xujiong Ye, from the School of Computer Science, is hosting the MyHealthAvatar consortium on 25th and 26th February.

MyHealthAvatar is a three-year European Commission project designed to provide a computing platform that offers access, collection, sharing and intelligent analysis of long-term personal health status data.

It will give people more knowledge and control of their health via their computers and mobile phones.

The programme will keep archives of each user’s electronic health records, as well as store data about daily activities and family history.

MyHealthAvatar, which began in 2013, will help deliver clinical analysis, prediction, prevention and treatment tailored to individual subjects.

It will also build a consistent continent-wide record of individual citizens enabling effective treatment should travellers become unwell anywhere in the EU.

The UK’s University of Lincoln is involved in the project, which is being led by the University of Bedfordshire.

Dr Ye, who is working with a team from Lincoln’s Laboratory of Vision Engineering (LoVE), is primarily focussing on the areas of multi-scale medical image analysis and intelligent life-logging data analysis
