Seventh ISIC Skin Image Analysis Workshop
@ ECCV 2022

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 tasks.

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. 2, pp. 250–255, 2001.

Topics of interest include:

  • Computer Vision in Dermatology and Primary Care
  • Few-Shot Learning for Dermatological Conditions
  • Skin Analysis from Dermoscopic Images
  • Skin Analysis from Clinical Photographs
  • Skin Analysis from Video
  • Skin Analysis from Total-Body Photography and 3D Skin Reconstructions
  • Skin Analysis from Confocal Microscopy
  • Skin Analysis from Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
  • Skin Analysis from Histopathological Images
  • Skin Analysis from ex-vivo and Fluorescence Microscopy
  • Skin Analysis from Multi-Modal Data Sources
  • Explainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI) Related to Skin Image Analysis
  • Algorithms to Mitigate Class Imbalance
  • Uncertainty Estimation Related to Skin Image Analysis
  • Human-Computer Interaction & Application Workflows for Skin Image Analysis
  • Robustness to Bias from Clinical and User-Originating Photography
  • Assessing and Creating Fairness of Skin Analysis in Underrepresented Groups
The workshop will give out two awards towards paper submissions:
  • Best Paper Award 
  • Honorable Mention Award
Judging will be carried out by the workshop chairs based on the reviewer comments, novelty, potential impact, and manuscript quality.

Invited Speakers

The workshop will feature several prominent names in the field of skin image analysis, including:
