We propose to follow the success of the first two MICCAI workshops on Ophthalmic Medical Image Analysis (MW-OMIA) with a third edition.
The first MW_OMIA (MICCAI 2014, Boston) attracted 24 submissions from 11 countries, representing the majority of the most visible research groups in the field. It was attended by 35 registered participants, a considerable number for a first half-day workshop. The 2nd MW_OMIA (MICCAI 2015, Munich) attracted 30 submissions, and 20 papers were accepted from 10 countries with the double-blind reviews from 18 reviewers. It was attended by more than 50 participants, a really big number for a half-day workshop. This was complemented by a comparatively good presence of eye-related paper in the main conference.
We aim to leverage this result and the extended committee members' network to attract submissions from further international groups, create a thriving discussion forum, promote interdisciplinary research, and encourage international collaborations in this increasingly active field.
