= 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 2nd International Workshop on Graphs in Biomedical Image Analysis
(GRAIL), organized in conjunction with MICCAI 2018, 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 (Graph CNNs)
- 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
- Graph spectral methods
- Algorithms on graphs
- Graphs in neuroimaging
- Applications of graph-based models and algorithms to biomedical
image analysis tasks (segmentation, registration, classification,

= Invited Speakers =

- Prof. Michael Bronstein (University of Lugano / Tel Aviv University
/ Intel Perceptual Computing)
- More TBA soon!

= Submit a paper =

Submissions should be done through the GRAIL CMT portal [ ].

The submission system is open!

This year we accept papers in 2 formats:

- **Complete papers**: Papers describing original research with length
of 8-10 pages. These papers are eligible for the "Best Paper Award"
and will be published in the GRAIL Open Proceedings and Lecture Notes
in Computer Sciences (LNCS) series. Submissions should be anonymous,
and formatted following the LNCS Style. All complete papers will be
peer-reviewed by 3 members of the program committee, with
double-blinded review process. The selection of the papers will be
based on significance of results, technical merit, relevance and
clarity of presentation.

- **Abstracts**: In order to encourage interesting discussions within
the community, this year we are also inviting papers describing
on-going, recently published or original research in a short paper of
2-3 pages. Depending on the number of submissions, we will organize a
poster or oral session during GRAIL, where accepted short papers will
be invited to present. The selection of the short abstracts will be
made by members of the program committee and/or organizers.
Submissions should be anonymous, and formatted following the LNCS

The authors of the best paper of the workshop will receive a cash
price (sponsored by EntelAI [ ] ).

Accepted papers will be invited to submit an extended version to a
Special Issue on Graphs in Biomedical Image Analysis in a top-tier
journal of the area, that we will organize after the event.
