> I discover today this website, that seems to be a \'blog\' attempt to federate efforts around AAM activities, as an old-school newsgroup or mailing list would do with less convenience.
I set it up with PHP-Nuke (a one-click installation) and was hoping,
but not truly expecting, for a bit of involvement. Comments require
registration with the site, which in turn helps the prevention of spam.
I am glad someone noticed the site! *smile*
> Unfortunately, I did not manage to see any comments posted for proposed topics. Does it means that discussions are held offline or under ICQ or so?
I think it just means that no-one wants to comment. *frown* I guess
comment in sites or blogs are becoming a rarity, with so many such sites
> Also, I am working in 3D ASM applied in Brain MRI internal structures.
This sounds like the work of Tim Cootes and Rhodri Davies. The latter
work built optimal ASM's in 3-D automatically.
> Do you think I will be continuously off-topic, considering AAMs imposes different conditions (though some are in common)?
AAM's are a hog to build in 3-D and they pose many problems. We are
currently trying to build them automatically in 3-D, but there are a few
issues associated with meshes. They also take an obscene time to run and
are difficult to view, analyze and interact with.

> Best regards,
I am not sure about /full/ annotation and identification of structures.
However, the papers from Davies (see cache at:
) explain how to deal with shapes in 3-D and refine their model
Let me know how it goes...
With kind regards,
