Shape Modeling and Analysis

 The Special Interest Group (SIG) in Shape Modeling and Analysis in Medical imaging (ShapeMI) intends to bring together mathematicians, statisticians, computer scientists and clinicians. 

The goals of the ShapeMI SIG are:

  • Targeted engagement of active groups in the shape analysis and modeling community both internal and external to MICCAI. 
  • Expand the MICCAI community and conference attendees to, but not limited to, clinical researchers involved in Shape Statistics. This will include reaching out to the biomedical research community in applications that require knowledge on shapes and statistical variability of shapes.
  • Increase the diversity of the MICCAI workshops for those interested, by providing support, structure and access to the wider scientific community.
  • Create effective communication among the different communities with a web page listing series of resources, and use of social media
