UCL Centre for Medical Image Computing


Medical Image Computing Summer School (MedICSS)

1 January 2019

UCL MedICSS aims to offer young researchers from the international community an exciting opportunity to engage with world-renowned experts in a diverse range of medical image computing topics and learn about the state-of-the-art in the field.

The program blends lectures by scientific and clinical leaders, with activity-based learning, such as interactive breakout sessions, to foster interaction among the participants and promote critical thinking and scientific discovery. As can be seen from the program (https://medicss.cs.ucl.ac.uk/programme-2/#not-set:all), we managed to enlist renowned experts in the fields of medical image computing and computer aided intervention from UCL and our close collaborators for this year's MedICSS. 

MedICSS is primarily intended for first and second year PhD students doing a PhD related to medical image computing, although we also welcome applications from others including masters students, post-docs, and industry based researchers, and those working in other related fields. To apply please send us your CV by emailing a pdf to medicss@cs.ucl.ac.uk along with a very brief (several sentences at most) statement of your research activities and ambitions and what you hope to gain from attending MedICSS. The deadline for applications is 11th May 2018, but places are limited and once they are filled registration will be closed. For registration fees and other details please see the website (https://medicss.cs.ucl.ac.uk/apply-to-register-2/).

UCL MedICSS is sponsored by the UCL Centre for Medical Image Computing and UCL's EPSRC funded Centre for Doctoral Training in Medical Imaging.

The 2018 MedICSS Summer School was organised by Janaina Mourao-Miranda and Jamie McClelland.
