MEDiVIS 2015

12th  International Conference

BioMedical Visualization

21, 22, 23 and 24 July 2015

The University of Barcelona ● Barcelona ● Spain ●


MediViz is a forum for the presentation of original papers in the theory and applications of visualization to biomedical and medical data. The symposium covers all aspects of visualization, visual analytics and issues affecting human-computer interaction with big data from the biomedical and medical fields. We encourage the submission of papers covering novel techniques, old techniques applied in novel ways, new methods, interesting applications and in-depth surveys. Anything related to biomedical and medical fields is of interest.


MediViz has evolved rapidly from its original concentration purely on medical visualization and is now a leading interdisciplinary forum for the exchange of ideas and results on visualization in the broader interdisciplinary biomedical sciences pushing forward the boundaries of biomedical sciences and modern medicine.


Examples of biomedical topics include, but are NOT limited to

- Nucleotide and protein sequence alignment, search and variant calling

- Protein structure, interaction, function, sequence analysis

- Signaling pathways, gene regulation, expression, identification and networks

- DNA, RNA structure, function, sequence analysis

- Biochemical and cellular simulations and models

- Structural, functional and comparative genomics

- Biomarkers and drug design

- Systems Biology and Systems Medicine

- Clinical and translational science

- Public and global health

- Computer aided diagnosis


Examples of visualization topics include, but are not limited to:- Interaction and human factors

- Novel approaches to data exploration

- Visualization of phenotype data and ontologies

- HCI and visualization in clinical information systems

- Visualizations of linked literature, semantics and data

- High-performance computing and parallel rendering

- Volume and flow visualization

- Annotation and labeling

- Overview and detail presentation of predictive or uncertain data

- Comparative methods / user studies / surveys

- Identification of correlated and anomalous relationships in disparate data sets

- Application of previously published methods to analyze experiment-specific data
