This year IEEE VIS (the conference formerly known as VisWeek) 2015 takes place in Chicago, also known as the “Windy City”. On the first day, I attended a very interesting tutorial about medical visualization entitled “Rejuvenated Medical Visualization”. This tutorial was opened by Steffen Oeltze-Jafra, the organizer of this event. He welcomed the audience and introduced the other speakers in the tutorial: Anders Ynnerman, Stefan Bruckner and Helwig Hauser.

MICCAI 2015 – Tutorial on Advanced Medical Visualization report

Update: The slides of all talks are now available here!

MICCAI 2015! This year, MICCAI (International Conference on Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention) takes place in Munich almost during the Oktoberfest. Sauerkraut, Weißwurst, Beer, and Science. What a great combination! The first day, MICCAI started with a few satellite events. Among these events, for us most relevant: the Tutorial on Advanced Medical Visualization. Most of the big shots in the medical visualization area contributed to this event and talked about ongoing research and the current state of the art in medical visualization. Anna Vilanova and Bernhard Preim were the hosts of this tutorial and introduced it.

Advanced Medical Visualization tutorial at MICCAI 2015!

(Cross-posted from The go-to resource for all things related to the book ‘Visual Computing for Medicine – Second Edition’. Original post written by Charl Botha.)

Bernhard Preim (University of Magdeburg, DE; author of and driving force behind the MedVis book) and Anna Vilanova (Delft University of Technology, NL) are organizing a tutorial on Advanced Medical Visualization at MICCAI 2015, one of the most important technical medical imaging conferences in the world today.


Judging by the list of topics and especially the list of speakers, I expect that this is going to be a great tutorial. If you’re going to MICCAI 2015, don’t miss this!
