Fifth ISIC Skin Image Analysis Workshop @ CVPR 2020

Hosted by the International Skin Imaging Collaboration (ISIC)

Skin is the largest organ of the human body, and is the first area of assessment performed by any clinical staff when a patient is seen, as it delivers numerous insights into a patient’s underlying health. For example, cardiac function, liver function, immune function, and physical injuries can be assessed by examining the skin. In addition, dermatologic complaints are also among the most prevalent in primary care [1]. Images of the skin are the most easily captured form of medical image in healthcare, and the domain shares qualities to other standard computer vision datasets, serving as a natural bridge between standard computer vision tasks and medical applications. However, significant and unique challenges still exist in this domain. For example, there is significant visual similarity across disease conditions, and in comparison to other medical imaging modalities, the skin is an organ which has no expected shape: varying genetics, disease states, imaging equipment, and environments can significantly change its appearance, making localization and classification in this domain unsolved tasks.

This workshop will serve as a venue to facilitate advancements and knowledge dissemination in the field of skin image analysis, raising awareness and interest for these socially valuable tasks. Speakers include (confirmed) major influencers in computer vision and skin imaging, and authors of accepted papers. This is the fifth installment of the workshop, which was previously held in Prague, Czech Republic (2016); Melbourne, Australia (2017); Granada, Spain (2018); and Long Beach, CA, USA (2019).
