The 2020 International Joint Conference on Neural Networks, Glasgow, 2020

Call for papers

IJCNN Special Session on Deep learning in medical image processing

The aim of session is to present recent advances in medical image processing by applying deep learning approach (CNN, autoencoder, GAN, BIGAN, DBN, etc.). We invite researchers working in this area to submit their papers with latest results to this Special Session of IJCNN.

Topics of interest include (but not limited to) the following:

  • Segmentation of medical images
  • Object detection and recognition in medical images
  • Classification of medical images
  • Content-based image retrieval
  • Image generation and enhancement

Different types of medical images are of interest: CT, MRI, PET,microscopic, mammograms,dermoscopic, histological, etc.


Submission Guidelines:

This special session will be held in 2020 International Joint Conference on Neural Networks-IJCNN (, a part of 2020 IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence ( ) (Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom, July 19-24, 2020). All papers should be prepared according to the IJCNN 2020 policy and should be submitted electronically using the conference website ( ) .
