Author Guidelines

The CBMI 2019 conference adheres to the IEEE paper formatting guidelines. When preparing your submission, please follow the IEEE guidelines given by IEEE at the Manuscript Templates for Conference Proceedings.Page limits are (including all the contents, figures, tables, references, results, etc):

  • 6 pages for full papers of the main track and special session papers
  • 4 pages for short papers of the main track and demonstration papers
  • All the contributions must be written in English. The PDF file format is the only one accepted format for submissions
  • We reserve the right to refuse outright submissions which are failing to comply with these requirements which ensure the proper formatting of the papers for the reviewing process and prospective inclusion in the IEEE Xplore and ACM digital libraries
  • Submissions are accepted only by electronic submission through the CBMI 2019 Conftool submissions site

Paper Submission

The Paper Submission System is now open. CBMI2019 is a multi-track submission system, allowing submissions for regular papers, short papers, demo papers, and special session papers. Please choose the appropriate type when submitting your papers.

Special Sessions

Authors are invited to submit original papers to the regular sessions, or to one of three special sessions on “Medical Image Mining and Health” (MIME), “Signals And Multimedia” (SAM), and “Multimedia Indexing for Comics” (MIC).

Medical Image Mining and Health (MIME)

Within the last decade we have observed the emergence of multimedia data analysis, indexing, and mining in many new domains, including medicine and personal health. For example, in the field of medical surgery interventional videos are nowadays recorded and stored in a long-term archive, in order to analyze and investigate them for post- procedural scenarios, such as operation documentation, surgical error analysis, as well as training and teaching surgery techniques. Similarly, in the field of health monitoring, input from various sensors is now used to supervise patients, supervise their health status, and mine potential health threats from their data, for example. Other relevant lines of research include analysis of medical images for diagnosis decision support, visual analytics for case understanding and causal analysis, multimedia analysis and multimodal interaction with social agents for basic care, video monitoring and multimedia fusion for remote management of patients. This special session aims to bring together researchers working on analysis, indexing, and mining of multimedia data in the field of medicine and health and provide them a venue for sharing novel ideas and discuss their most-recent works.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Multimedia data mining in medicine or health
  • Medical image and video analysis/indexing
  • Causal research and complications investigations by image and video analysis
  • Image and video retrieval for medicine
  • Case retrieval in medicine by multimedia data
  • Multimedia analytics for medicine or health
  • Surgical quality assessment by multimedia data analysis and mining
  • Health sensor data analysis and mining
  • Patient monitoring through sensors
  • Multimodal interaction in the health domain
  • Speech and audio analysis and retrieval for health applications
  • Facial analysis and gesture recognition of patients
  • Fusion of multimedia information for health and care-giving applications
  • Semantic web approaches for multimedia health applications
  • Visual analytics for human machine interaction in the health domain

Authors are invited to submit full length papers (6 pages in IEEE double-column format) via the submission site of CBMI 2019 to the “Special Session 1: Medical Image Mining and Health (MIME)” track. Each submission will be peer-reviewed by 2-3 PC members (single-blind).

  • Jenny Benois-Pineau, University of Bordeaux, France,
