 Fourth ISIC Skin Image Analysis Workshop @ CVPR 2019

Hosted by the International Skin Imaging Collaboration (ISIC)


Skin is the largest organ of the human body, and is the first area of
assessment performed by any clinical staff when a patient is seen, as it
delivers numerous insights into the patient’s underlying health. For
example, cardiac function, liver function, immune function, and physical
injuries can be assessed by examining the skin. In addition, dermatologic
complaints are also among the most prevalent in primary care [1]. Images of
the skin are the most easily captured form of medical image in healthcare,
and the domain shares qualities to other standard computer vision datasets,
serving as a natural bridge between standard computer vision tasks and
medical applications.

This workshop will serve as a venue to facilitate advancements and
knowledge dissemination in the field of skin image analysis, raising
awareness and interest for these socially valuable tasks. Speakers include
major influencers in computer vision and skin imaging, and authors of
accepted papers. This is the fourth installment of the workshop, which was
previously held in Prague, Czech Republic (2016); Melbourne, Australia
(2017); and Granada, Spain (2018).
