Welcome to WBIR 2016

WBIR 2016 is the 7th International Workshop on Biomedical Image Registration which will take place at the Caesar’s Palace on July 1st in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.


The Workshop on Biomedical Image Registration aims to bring together leading researchers in the area of biomedical image registration to present and discuss recent developments and methodology in the field. The workshop will include both oral and poster presentations and ample opportunities for discussion.

Highlights 2016

For the first time, WBIR will be an official workshop of the IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition. This will provide a unique opportunity to bring together researchers from the biomedical imaging and computer vision communities. We are very happy to announce our two keynote speakers of this year’s workshop, Lourdes Agapito (UCL) and Andrew Fitzgibbon (Microsoft Research Cambridge).


Submissions are invited in all areas of biomedical image registration. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Novel registration methodology: 2D/3D/4D, spatiotemporal/dynamic, slice-to-volume, projective, single/multi-modal, intra/inter-subject, model-based, patch-based, multichannel, tracking, continuous/discrete optimization, real-time, similarity measures, machine learning techniques
  • Biomedical applications of registration: computer-assisted interventions, image-guided therapy, treatment planning/delivery, diagnosis/prognosis, atlas-based segmentation, label fusion, histopathology correlation, serial studies, morphometry, biomechanics, image retrieval/restoration/fusion, imaging biomarkers for precision medicine
  • Early proof of concept, and computer vision registration methodology with potential use in biomedical applications
  • Validation of registration: quantitative and qualitative methods, benchmarking,
    comparison studies, phantom studies, correlation to outcome


WBIR has been recognized as a top venue for researchers working on biomedical image registration problems. Previous WBIRs were held in Bled, Slovenia (1999), at the University of Pennsylvania, USA (2003), at the University Medical Center Utrecht, The Netherlands (2006), in Lubeck, Germany (2010), at Vanderbilt University, Nashville, USA (2012), and the University College London (2014).
