Review of the state of the art in Retrieval of High-Dimensional Visual Data by Antonio Foncubierta-Rodríguez to be published in Multimedia Tools and Applications
The manuscript ‘A Survey on Visual Information Search Behavior and Requirements of Radiologists’ by Dimitrios Markonis was accepted for publication. It will be published by the journal ‘Methods of Information in Medicine’, volume 51, issue 6, 2012.
Prof. Henning Müller gave the presentation Information Access to Medical Image Data: from Big Data to Semantics – Academic and Commercial Challenges at the DBTA Workshop on Academic-Industrial Forms of Collaboration at the University of Lausanne.
The presentation introduced two EU funded projects called Khresmoi and Visceral and highlighted the collaborations of HES-SO with several companies in these projects and also with other Universities and institutions in Switzerland.
Prof. H. Müller was guest editor together with A. Hanbury and N. Al Shorbaji in the Focus Theme of Methods of Information in Medicine journal. The focus theme in this issue is Health Information Search Combining Text, Visual Information, and Knowledge Bases.
This is a journal that has stressed, for more than 50 year, the methodology and scientific fundamentals of organizing, representing and analysing data, information and knowledge in biomedicine and health care.
Two presentations from the MICCAI 2012 and ACM multimedia 2012 are now available at the HesSo website.
The presentation Retrieval of 4D Dual Energy CT for Pulmonary Embolism Diagnosis was presented in the 15th International Conference on Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention held October 2012 in Nice, France.
The presentation Ground truth generation in medical imaging: a crowdsourcing-based iterative approach was presented in the Workshop on Crowdsourcing for Multimedia ACM multimedia held November 2012 in Nara, Japan
The talk ‘E-health in general and the projects of the HES-SO Valais’ was given by Henning Müller at the E-Santé: Évolution ou Révolution? conference that took place at the HES-SO in Lausanne.
We presented our projects to over 80 persons involved with the eHealth in the Swiss French part. There will be another event this 29-nov-2012, this time here in Sierre.
The Visceral kick-off meeting will take place in Vienna on the 19th to 20th of November.
