24th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON MEDICAL IMAGE COMPUTING & COMPUTER ASSISTED INTERVENTION

September 27 - October 1, 2021 / Strasbourg, FRANCE

CLINICAL DAY

CLINICCAI

Welcome to CLINICCAI - Clinical Translation of Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Interventions

Dear Colleagues,

It is a great pleasure to invite you to the very first edition of CLINICCAI, a MICCAI event dedicated to healthcare practitioners willing to discuss their research on the more translational and clinical aspects of medical image computing, computer-assisted interventions, and medical robotics.

The Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention Society (the MICCAI Society) is a leading community of biomedical scientists, engineers, and clinicians working on advances in the methodology and applications of these fields since 1998. Recent methodological improvements and new clinical applications enabled by breakthroughs in medical imaging, deep learning and other AI techniques motivated MICCAI to create a clinical day to reinforce its clinical ties and explore further how to generate value for patients and healthcare systems.

CLINICCAI will be a fantastic opportunity for healthcare practitioners to share their translational research experiences, discuss needs with biomedical researchers with diverse backgrounds, network and become active members of the growing MICCAI community. The event will take place in parallel to MICCAI 2021, allowing participants to explore and get inspired by the other scientific sessions, workshops and social happenings of the biomedical conference.

In this first edition, CLINICCAI will be a hybrid event - allowing both onsite and online participation - as the rest of MICCAI2021. It will be held in Strasbourg, France, on September 29th, 2021. Works to be presented will be selected based on an abstract submission evaluated by an international committee of physicians. Renown practitioners in the field will be invited for keynote lectures in a joint session with the main MICCAI2021 program.

We look forward to welcoming you at CLINICCAI!

Nicolas Padoy, PhD - Lee Swanström, MD - General Chairs.

CALL FOR PAPERS

You are kindly invited to submit your translational research for presentation at CLINICCAI, a clinician-centred event at the 24th edition of the MICCAI conference.

The International Conference on Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention (MICCAI) annually hosts world leading biomedical scientists' discussing cutting-edge methods and applications in medical imaging and computer assisted intervention.

With this first edition of CLINICCAI - Clinical Translation of Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Interventions - MICCAI aims to attract healthcare practitioners willing to explore further how recent methodological breakthroughs can translate into value for patients and healthcare systems.

Presenting at CLINICCAI will be a fantastic opportunity for healthcare practitioners to discuss their translational experiences, engage with renown biomedical scientists and enrich the MICCAI community. The event will take place in Strasbourg, France, on September 29th, 2021. Participants are invited to explore and get inspired by the scientific sessions, workshops and social happenings of MICCAI, to be held from September 27th to October 1st, 2021.

All presentations will be considered for the Best Presentation Award, and informed immediately after the end of the session.

We strongly encourage the submission of original works focusing on preclinical or clinical translation of medical image computing, computer-assisted interventions, and medical robotics.
