13th International Conference on Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention (MICCAI2010)

MICCAI 2010, the 13th International Conference on Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention, will be held from 20th to 24th September 2010 in Beijing, China. The venue for MICCAI 2010 is the China National Convention Center (CNCC). Located in the Beijing Olympic Green, the CNCC is right next to the Bird's Nest (China National Stadium), the Water Cube (National Aquatics Center) and the National Indoor Stadium.

Topics to be addressed in MICCAI 2010 include, but are not limited to:

  • General Medical Image Computing
  • Computer Assisted Interventional Systems and Robotics
  • Visualization and Interaction
  • General Biological Image Computing
  • Brain and Neuroscience Image Computing
  • Computational Anatomy (statistics on anatomy)
  • Computational Physiology (virtual organs)
  • Innovative Clinical/Biological Applications and Surgical Procedures

Submission of papers
We invite electronic submissions for MICCAI 2010 (LNCS style, double blind review) of up to 8-page papers for oral or poster presentation. Papers will be reviewed by members of the programme review committee and assessed for quality and best means of presentation. Besides advances in methodology, we would also like to encourage submission of papers that demonstrate clinical relevance, clinical applications, and validation studies.

Proposals for Tutorials and Workshops
Tutorials will be held and will complement and enhance the scientific programme of MICCAI 2010. The purpose of the tutorials is to provide educational material for training new professionals in the field including students, engineers, clinicians and new researchers. The purpose of the workshops is to provide a comprehensive forum on topics that will not be fully explored during the main conference.
