Eighth ISIC Skin Image Analysis Workshop @ MICCAI 2023

Hosted by the International Skin Imaging Collaboration (ISIC)

Skin is the largest organ of the human body, and is the first area of a
patient assessed by clinical staff. The skin delivers numerous insights
into a patient’s underlying health: for example, pale or blue skin suggests
respiratory issues, unusually yellowish skin can signal hepatic issues, or
certain rashes can be indicative of autoimmune issues. In addition,
dermatological complaints are also among the most prevalent in primary care
(Lowell et al., 2001). Images of the skin are the most easily captured form
of medical image in healthcare, and the domain shares qualities to standard
computer vision datasets, serving as a natural bridge between standard
computer vision tasks and medical applications. However, significant and
unique challenges still exist in this domain. For example, there is
remarkable visual similarity across disease conditions, and compared to
other medical imaging domains, varying genetics, disease states, imaging
equipment, and imaging conditions can significantly change the appearance
of the skin, making localization and classification in this domain unsolved

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. Invited speakers
include major influencers in computer vision and skin imaging, and authors
of accepted papers.

Lowell et al. “Dermatology in Primary Care: Prevalence and Patient
Disposition,” Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, vol. 45, no.
