Special Issue Call for Papers:

Contributions are sought on methods that address, but are not limited to, the following:
● Fundamental methods for image-based biophysical modeling and image synthesis
● Image synthesis in high dimensional spaces (vectors, tensors, spatio-temporal features, etc.)
● High-throughput simulation and synthesis from large-scale image databases
● Quantification of uncertainty in imaging biomarkers and handling incomplete data via image simulation and synthesis
● Image synthesis and simulation techniques for data normalization, protocol harmonization, and intensity correction
● Mechanistic and data-driven predictive imaging models of disease progression or organ development
● Biomechanical and data-driven computational imaging models of organ motion and deformation
● Physical and data-driven models of image formation and acquisition in clinical and cellular imaging
● Methods and tools for cross modality (PET/MR, PET/CT, CT/MR, etc.) image synthesis and simulation
● Methods for automated quality assessment of simulations and synthetic images
● Novel evaluation metrics and benchmarking of state-of-the-art approaches in simulation and synthesis
