Event topics:

Healthcare practitioners involved in multidisciplinary research teams or start-ups are kindly invited to submit their translational research on medical image computing, computer-assisted intervention, and medical robotics for presentation at CLINICCAI.

Topics of interest to CLINICCAI include, but are not limited to:
– Digital patient
– Digital pathology
– Computer-aided diagnosis
– Predictive modeling of risks, diseases, and patients’ outcomes
– Advanced preoperative planning and surgical guidance
– Image-guided interventions
– Immersive technologies in surgery (mixed, augmented, and virtual reality)
– Technologies to enhance patient safety and quality improvement
– Video-based assessment of surgical procedures
– Automated skill assessment
– Ergonomics and human factors in surgery
– Team dynamics assessment
– Surgical data science
– Digital surgery
– Healthcare robotics
– Virtual reality simulators
– Surgical coaching
– Serious gaming for training
– Hospital and OR management systems
– Device and strategies for OR translation

Abstracts no longer than 600 words and formatted according to the guidelines available on the CLINICCAI website should be submitted via Microsoft’s CMT platform by May 24, 2021.

Presenting authors must be healthcare practitioners who commit to register to the conference. All presentations will compete for the CLINICCAI Best Presentation Award, to be announced at the end of the event.

Authors will have the opportunity to publish their abstracts in proceedings and/or submit a full paper to Surgical Innovation.

Event aims:

CLINICCAI – Clinical Translation of Medical Image Computing and Computer-Assisted Interventions- is 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 and discuss needs with more than 2500 scientists who annually attend the biomedical conference and 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 – like the rest of MICCAI2021. It will be held in Strasbourg, France, on September 29, 2021. Scientific works selected based on an abstract submission will be presented by healthcare practitioners. A keynote presentation and a panel discussion focused on clinical translation will be held in a plenary session jointly with MICCAI2021. Healthcare practitioners will be offered a discounted registration fee for the conference.
