= Scope =

Graphs are powerful mathematical structures that provide a flexible and scalable framework to model objects and their interactions in an interpretable fashion. An important body of work has been developed around different methodological aspects including graphical models, graph-theoretical algorithms, spectral graph analysis, graph dimensionality reduction and graph-based network analysis. New topics are also emerging as the outcome of interdisciplinary studies, shedding light on areas like deep structured models, graph convolutional neural networks and signal processing on graphs.

The Workshop on Graphs in Biomedical Image Analysis (GRAIL), organized in conjunction with MICCAI 2017, aims to highlight the potential of graph-based models for biomedical image analysis. GRAIL provides a forum to discuss and encourage the exploration of graph-based models for clinical problems within a variety of biomedical imaging contexts.

= Topics of interest =

The covered topics include but are not limited to:
- Probabilistic graphical models for biomedical image analysis
- Discrete and continuous optimization for graphical models
- Signal processing on graphs for biomedical image analysis
- Deep/machine learning on structured and unstructured graphs
- Convolutional neural networks on graphs
- Graphs for large scale population analysis
- Graph-based shape modeling and dimensionality reduction
- Combining imaging and non-imaging data through graph structures
- Graph-based generative models for biomedical image analysis
- Applications of graph-based models and algorithms to biomedical image analysis tasks (segmentation, registration, classification, etc.)

= Invited Speaker =

Prof. Georg Langs (Medical University of Vienna / Massachusetts Institute of Technology)

Title of the talk: "Graphs and Manifold Learning in Computational Neuroscience: Correspondence and Individuality"

= Important dates and proceedings =

Proceedings will be published in Springer Lecture Note in Computer Sciences (LNCS) series.

Important dates:
- May 15th, 2017: Submission system opens
- June 12th, 2017: Submission deadline
- July 12th, 2017: Notification of acceptance
- September 14th, 2017: Workshop

= GRAIL Best Paper Award =

The authors of the best paper of the workshop will receive a cash price (sponsored by CentraleSupelec and INRIA) and will be invited to submit an extended version of their paper to the journal of Computer Vision and Image Understanding (CVIU, Elsevier).

The acceptance will be based on final reviews by the same reviewers that evaluated the original workshop paper, leading to fast turnaround time for publication.
