We are pleased to announce the Autoseg 2015 Workshop being held on June 7, 2015 in conjunction with the IUPESM 2015 World Congress on Medical Physics & Biomedical Engineering ( at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in Toronto, Canada.

Learning Objectives

This program will focus on automated methods for medical image segmentation. Topics will include clinical applications, algorithms, and computational implementation. Medical physicists, biomedical engineers, imaging scientists, computer scientists and healthcare professionals who use autosegmentation methods will enhance their knowledge and skills by attending this one-day event.

After this event, attendees will be able to describe several autosegmentation algorithms; compare and evaluate different autosegmentation techniques; and select amongst different algorithms for varied imaging modalities and tasks.

The workshop will consist of ten invited presentations from leaders in medical image autosegmentation and provides the opportunity for medical imaging researchers to meet and exchange ideas in the rapidly advancing field of automatic segmentation.
