Image Processing Techniques and Applications (IPTA) is a Liverpool-based workshop for the communication of research related to image processing techniques and its applications to real life imaging problems, held every 4 years. It provides an opportunity to present and discuss research in recent advances in mathematical modelling and analysis. A journal special issue is planned after the event. The 4th International Workshop on Image Processing Techniques and Applications, is being held at the University of Liverpool on 22-23 July 2019, immediately before the 23rd Conference on Medical Image Understanding and Analysis (MIUA 2019 during 24-26 July 2019). Although the fee for this IPTA workshop is 50 only but registration is necessar; if booked with MIUA, there is an overall discount of 25 pounds.

This fourth workshop aims
- to review the state-of-the-art in image processing models, methods, techniques and commercial software packages;
- to review learning methods in Imaging,
- to highlight new techniques and applications in Biomedical Imaging,
- to tackle existing and emerging image challenges,
- to promote mutual understanding of researchers in different disciplines, and networking;
- to facilitate future research development and collaborations;
followed the success of previous three workshops (see the above links).
The main themes are image segmentation, multimodality registration, deep learning and efficient algorithms with applications in medical and biomedical imaging .

Liverpool, an amazing city, was named one of the top five places to visit in the UK by tourists from around the world...
The venue is easiliy accessible via Manchester international airport (35 mins away), Liverpool John Lennon airport (20 mins away) and London Euston Train station (2 hours away).
