Information Processing in Medical Imaging (IPMI) 2021

The 27th international conference on Information Processing in Medical Imaging (IPMI), June 27th – July 2nd at Bornholm, Denmark

IPMI 2021

The 27th international conference on Information Processing in Medical Imaging (IPMI) will be held in Rønne at the island of Bornholm in Denmark from Sunday June 27th to Friday July 2nd, 2021. The IPMI conference series focuses on novel developments in the acquisition, formation, analysis and display of medical images. IPMI places the highest importance on high-quality submissions coupled with presentations and thorough discussions of the presented contributions. IPMI 2021 will continue the scientific focus and traditions established in 26 prior conferences over the last 50 years.

IPMI 2021 decisions have been announced

IPMI 2021 received 204 submissions of which 200 papers went into peer review. Of these, 59 publications were accepted for publication and presentation at the conference, resulting in a 30% acceptance rate. Authors have received notification today, Friday Feb. 12.
We thank all authors for submitting to IPMI, all reviewers for doing excellent and timely reviews, and the paper selection committee for evaluating and making decisions on paper acceptance. We are looking very much forward to presentation of the accepted papers at the conference in June.

Call for Papers

The IPMI 2021 call for papers is now online.


While we sincerely hope that the corona virus pandemic is under control well before IPMI 2021, the current situation requires planning for travel restrictions still being in place, or possibly that the pandemic will prevent a physical conference entirely. We are planning a hybrid meeting with possibility for either physical or online attendance. We expect that the limited number of attendees for IPMI will allow such a format to work well, making for an interesting and enjoyable meeting for both physical and online attendees. We will actively use e.g. discussion groups to facilite interaction given such a format. Should no physical presence be possible, IPMI will be fully virtual. Importantly, in either case, this implies that proceedings with accepted papers will still be published. We continue to monitor the situation as the conference comes closer. Any updates will be published on the website
