CALL FOR ABSTRACTS: CPW2018 - Bioinformatics and computational pathology
summit (second edition)

When? Sunday, September 9, 2018. 
Where? Athens, Greece (during ECCB2018)

Digital pathology is increasingly used to study biological processes and
diseases as novel molecular probing and imaging techniques allow the
measurement of single molecules in whole tissue sections. Resulting
multi-gigapixel images can be viewed on a computer screen via dedicated
software. However, automated analysis of such large-scale datasets is
challenging and their combination with omics data is not trivial. This
workshop wants to facilitate bridging opportunities between the
and tissue image analysis communities.

This second edition is organised as a full-day workshop during ECCB 2018


The following keynote speakers have already agreed to speak at the

Thomas Fuchs, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center
Chakra Chennubhotla, University of Pittsburgh	
Derek Magee, University of Leeds


The conference solicits oral talks, posters, and proceeding papers
contributions of original work or work that was recently accepted or
in a peer-reviewed journal or at a high level international conference. In
latter case, the publication reference should be clearly mentioned, and the
abstracts should be checked mainly for relevance, rather than receive a full

Conference proceedings will be published by the Journal of Pathology

The program committee will decide which contributions are selected for an
presentation, and which ones are presented during a poster session. For
submission instructions, please refer to


Computational pathology exists at the interphase between bioinformatics,
machine learning, and digital pathology (microscopy). Submissions from all
topics of interest are welcome (non-exhaustive list):

Machine learning and image analysis for quantification in digital pathology
(in 2D & 3D),
Novel approaches (e.g. spatial or graph-based methods) to extract high-level
features (e.g. molecular networks or spatial expression patterns) from tissue
images for systems pathology,
Software development methodologies and tools to ease the exploitation of
tissue images and integration with omics data,
Novel molecular imaging techniques on tissues (molecular pathology, next
generation pathology) and their analysis challenges, e.g. in situ
hybridization, mass spectrometry imaging of formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded
tissues, mass cytometry, and other spectroscopy techniques (Raman,...)...
Research applications on non-human model organisms


Submission deadline: June 15, 2018.
Notification of acceptance: June 30, 2018.
Conference: Sunday September 9, 2018.
