Summary: BIRS Workshop on Mathematical Methods for Medical Image
Analysis (MMMIA)
Ghassan Hamarneh (Simon Fraser University)
Rafeef Abugharbieh (The University of British Columbia)
Nov. 4-9, 2007
1 Workshop Objectives
The main objective of the workshop was to bring together top-tier international researchers in the field of
medical image computing for brainstorming sessions culminating with definition of current research chal-
lenges in the area and potential solutions. The workshop's specific goals included:
Fostering exchange of information, sharing of insights, and seeding of new collaborations between
participants in areas of mutual interest.
Establishing connections between Canadian researchers and well-established internationally-renowned
research groups world-wide.
Improving communication between related disciplines in this multidisciplinary area including Mathe-
matics, Computer Science, Engineering, Medicine, and Physics.
Enabling in-depth scientific discussions through exciting talks and lively panel discussions on impor-
tant problems in medical image computing and state of the art analysis techniques that are currently
under active research.
