INESC TEC researchers organised a conference on Image Analysis and Recognition
The ICIAR 2020 – 17th International Conference on Image Analysis and Recognition – took place between the June 24 and 26. The international event in the fields of Image Processing and Analysis, Computer Vision, Machine Learning and Medical Image Analysis has been held annually, alternating between Portugal and Canada. The 2020 edition was “100% digital”, with the collaboration of five researchers from INESC TEC.

Aurélio Campilho, coordinator of INESC TEC’s Biomedical Imaging laboratory and researcher at the Centre for Biomedical Engineering Research (C-BER) was one of the creators and General Chair of ICIAR, in all 17 editions. The General Chairs of this edition, in addition to Aurélio Campilho, were Fakhri Karray and Zhou Wang, from the University of Waterloo, in Canada.
This year, researchers Carlos Ferreira, Catarina Carvalho and João Pedrosa, from C-BER, and Luís Teixeira, from the Centre for Telecommunications and Multimedia (CTM), were part of the Organising Committee.
The conference brought together 121 researchers from around the world, who presented their work in the fields of Image Processing and Analysis, Computer Vision, Machine Learning and Medical Image Analysis. In total, 123 articles were submitted from 31 countries, of which 73 were accepted.
INESC TEC was able to include seven articles in the conference proceedings, published by Springer, in the series “Lecture Notes in Computer Science”.
This edition featured three renowned speakers: Daniel Rueckert, from the Imperial College London (United Kingdom), Hani Hagras, from the University of Essex (United Kingdom) and Ioannis Pitas, from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (Greece).
The conference’s scientific programme also included 19 thematic sessions and two special sessions: “Grand Challenge on Automatic Lung Cancer Patient Management”, by João Pedrosa, Carlos Ferreira and Guilherme Aresta, researchers at INESC TEC, and “Novel Imaging Methods for Diagnosis and Screening of Ophthalmic Diseases ”, by Ana Maria Mendonça (INESC TEC, University of Porto), Koen Vermeer (Rotterdam Eye Hospital, the Netherlands) .
The conference focused on the discussion of the most recent theoretical and methodological advances, as well as of application-related subjects in the fields of analysis and image recognition.
