WBIR2018 - 8th International Workshop on Biomedical Image Registration

Nico Buls

Dear colleagues,

We have some exciting updates on the 8th International Workshop on Biomedical Image Registration, WBIR2018, held in Leiden, the Netherlands. For more info, please visit our website We have a draft program online (confirmed keynote speech by Prof.dr. Max Welling, authority on machine learning!), and you may now register to attend the conference!


Missed the full paper submission deadline, but still want to participate? Submit a 1-page abstract by April 1! Abstracts will undergo a (mild) single-blind review and will be presented as posters (including a 2-minute plenary pitch) at the conference, but will not appear in the proceedings. We are excited to hear about your latest technical breakthroughs, clinical application studies, and also welcome abstracts of recently published or submitted journal papers.


WBIR2018 will include a special session on the Continuous Registration Challenge (CRC). CRC is a new collaborative software platform for medical image registration. Please check it out at, attend one of the weekly webinars, and participate!

Post-WBIR Hackathon
In collaboration with the Insight Toolkit (ITK) community and Kitware, we will host a hackathon on the day after the main conference (June 30). Participation is free of charge.
