The workshop will be held in Munich on Oct 9th, 2015. The objective of the workshop is two-fold. First, it will introduce fundamental concepts in imaging genetics, including concepts in computational biology and medical imaging. Second, it will facilitate discussion of novel modeling methods and new clinical applications and datasets through oral presentations of accepted abstracts. The workshop program has more details.
Accepted paper submissions will give both an oral presentation and a poster. Accepted abstracts will present a poster. One of our main goals is to get the audience interested in your poster, to encourage discussion.
Our invited speakers will introduce the fundamentals of clinical and molecular genetics, imaging genetics, and statistical methods relevant to the medical imaging community.
Methods and Applications
Imaging genetics studies can comprise of a wide variety of heterogeneous sources of information with complex relationships and very large dimensionality. As current methods do not capture these complex interactions, joint representations and models of imaging and genetics are becoming important, making MICGen an ideal workshop for presenting novel frameworks. Simultaneously, clinical applications drive the research directions for methods development, and we invite papers and researchers presenting novel applications and datasets.
For details regarding submissions, please see the call for papers.
