MICCAI Workshop on Data- and Compute-Intensive Clinical and Translational Imaging Applications
                                                          DCICTIA-MICCAI 2012

                                Extended deadline for submission (final): June 15th, 2012

The intersection of medical imaging and high performance computing has demonstrated the potential to make a significant impact in the translation of medical imaging research from the lab into clinical practice. However, high--performance computing technologies are complex and their exploration in the medical domain is leading to new and interesting research challenges. Within the last years, a new generation of heterogeneous computing platforms consisting of nodes with multi-core CPUs and GPUs have emerged and is now being widely deployed for large-scale scientific research. New trends like Cloud infrastructures and interoperability between different DCIs augment the options to employ such infrastructures for medical imaging applications. Significant progress in security, reliability, availability and robustness of distributed IT infrastructures pave the way for their utilization not only in basic and clinical research but also in clinical routine.

This workshop will build on existing collaborative efforts in understanding current trends in HPC/DCI medical imaging research. It will encourage open discussion regarding the current status and latest developments in the field; explore new ideas/motifs, identify the challenges, which currently impeded wider adoption of these technologies in image-assisted translational research, clinical intervention and decision-¬making, and present innovative solutions.

=== List of topics addressed:
  - Parallel medical image processing using multi‐core CPUs, shared memory multiprocessor machines, GPUs, Grids, or Clouds
  - Medical image analysis pipelines and workflows employing HPC or DCIs
  - Content‐based retrieval and data mining
  - High throughput execution of algorithm sensitivity analyses
  - Distributed, heterogeneous medical imaging databases
  - Applications using HPC or DCIs
