You are invited to submit your full paper to MICCAI 2021. MICCAI is the premier international conference in Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention and attracts world leading biomedical scientists, engineers, and clinicians from a wide range of disciplines.
MICCAI 2021 will (hopefully) be held as a hybrid event - allowing both onsite and online participation - in Strasbourg, France.

As in previous years, you must register your intention-to-submit by Midnight, Pacific Time, Feb 19th, 2021 Feb 22nd, 2021. You will not be able to submit your paper if you do not register your intention-to-submit before this deadline.
You will be able to edit your submission up to the paper submission deadline (March 3rd, 2021). Please check the conference timeline on the website for further details on the review schedule.

In addition to advances in methodology, we encourage submission of papers that demonstrate clinical relevance and novel clinical applications.

Topics of interest for MICCAI include, but are not limited to:

  • Computational (Integrative) Pathology
  • Computational Anatomy and Physiology
  • Computer Aided Diagnosis
  • Imaging Biomarkers
  • Image Reconstruction
  • Image Registration
  • Image Segmentation
  • Image-Guided Interventions and Surgery
  • Integration of Imaging with Non-Imaging Biomarkers
  • Interventional Simulation Systems
  • Interpretability and Explainability of Machine Learning
  • Label-efficient Machine Learning
  • Machine Learning for Biomedical Applications
  • Advances in Machine Learning Methods
  • Outcome/disease prediction
  • Population Imaging and Imaging Genetics
  • Surgical Data Science
  • Surgical Skill and Work Flow Analysis
  • Mixed, Augmented and Virtual Reality
  • Visualization in Biomedical Imaging

We strongly encourage authors to improve the reproducibility of their research along three directions: open data, open implementations, and appropriate evaluation design and reporting. Where possible, we invite authors to use open data or to make their data and code available for open access by other researchers. With their submission, authors will be asked to fill out a reproducibility checklist indicating to what extent their submission fulfills these criteria.

New in MICCAI 2021 is that we intend to make reviews and rebuttals of accepted papers publicly available (without disclosing the reviewers names) on the MICCAI website. By submitting a paper to MICCAI, the authors agree that, if their paper is accepted for publication, the reviews and meta-reviews of their paper will be published as well.

Papers will consist of maximum 8 pages (text, figures and tables) + up to 2 pages for references only. They should be submitted electronically in LNCS style, appropriately anonymized for double blind review, to the CMT system.
Please carefully read the Submission Guidelines when preparing your submission.
Accepted papers will be published in the MICCAI Proceedings in the Springer LNCS Series.

The papers will be evaluated by external reviewers and Area Chairs for inclusion in the scientific program of MICCAI.
