Information Processing in Medical Imaging (IPMI) is one of the longest-running conference series in medical imaging, founded in 1969. [...] IPMI 2021 received 200 valid submissions, of which 59 were accepted for publication at the conference. From these, 29 papers were invited to submit an extended journal version to the first special edition of the MELBA journal associated with an IPMI conference.
