The full day workshop will be held in conjunction with MICCAI 2016. The workshop program will consists of a series of presentations of accepted papers, as well as keynote talks from invited speakers from clinical and industrial research organizations.


Researchers are invited to submit papers on computational methods in the area of spine imaging and image analysis. Authors of accepted papers will be presenting their work during the workshop. We encourage both submissions of papers on novel methodology and clinical research, and also papers which demonstrate the performance of methods on the proposed challenges.


Paper submission: July 1st
Author notification: Mid July
Camera-ready: End July


Paper submission will be done via the CMT online system.



Revised workshop & challenge papers will be published as post-proceedings in Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science.


All submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least 2 members of the program committee. Paper selection will be based on methodological innovation, technical merits, results, validation, and application potentials.


Full workshop papers should be limited to 12 pages and formatted in Lecture Notes in Computer Science style. Please refer to the submission format guidelines of MICCAI or the Springer LNCS authors’ information page for details. Submissions are to be anonymized by removing author and institutional information from the manuscript.

Challenge participants who evaluate previously published methods on challenge data are encouraged to submit short papers with 4-6 pages containing a brief method description and their challenge results.


When submitting a paper, the authors implicitly acknowledge that NO paper of substantially similar content has been or will be submitted elsewhere. This policy does not apply to challenge papers which evaluate methods that have been previously published or are currently under review.


Supplementary material submission is optional. The materials may include videos of results that cannot be included in the paper, anonymized related submissions to other conferences and journals, and appendices or technical reports containing extended proofs and mathematical derivations. Proper references to the materials should be included in the paper. The reviewers are not obligated to look at the supplementary material.
