Aim and Scope

The 10th International Seminar on Medical Information Processing and Analysis (SIPAIM) aims to bring together medical and bio-medical researchers, students and professionals, especially those with a strong interest in image and signal analysis. The conference will serve as a forum to communicate results, exchange ideas and promote the creation of technical and scientific collaboration networks.

Paper submission and Topics

Prospective authors are invited to submit an extended abstract and, upon acceptance for publication by the program committee, send a full manuscript that will be published in the SPIE Digital Library.

Papers should be related to one or more of the conference's six main topics:

- Medical and Biomedical Imaging

- e-Health

- Digital Pathology

- Analysis of medical procedures through imaging

- Representation Based Biosignal Analysis

- Biosignals

An extended list of sub-topics may be found in the event's web page:

Abstract and manuscript submissions for SIPAIM 2014 will go through the SPIE Submission and Review System.

Important dates

Final deadline for Abstract Submission: June 02, 2014
Notification of Acceptance: June 20, 2014
Final Manuscript Submission: July 18, 2014
Conference: Oct 14-16, 2014


The conference will be held in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia. Cartagena, UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1984, is a beautiful historical city located by the Caribbean Sea. It is an international tourist destination that offers its visitors all modern travel and transportation facilities.

This year SIPAIM will be organized by a consortium of Colombian Universities led by the Universidad Nacional de Colombia (National University of Colombia).

Avianca Airlines is sponsoring SIPAIM and offering a 5 to 20% discount to SIPAIM assistants for flights operated by Avianca or Taca Airlines. Use the discount code GN201 and present proof of assistance. Restrictions apply.
