The Eurographics Association organizes a biannual competition to acknowledge the contribution of computer graphics in the medical field, and to encourage further development. Originally called “Eurographics Medical Prize”, the competition was renamed to “Dirk Bartz Prize for Visual Computing in Medicine” in 2010 — in honor of Dirk Bartz who passed away far too early in March 2010. Dirk Bartz was a highly
recognized and enthusiastic scientist, teacher and promoter of Visual Computing in Medicine.
Submissions to the Dirk Bartz Prize for Visual Computing in Medicine 2019 are being invited from researchers and developers who can demonstrate that a particular benefit in a medical application has resulted from the use of visual computing technology that they have produced/developed. Submissions from all areas of visual computing — examples include the use of new data visualization techniques, interaction methods, or virtual/augmented environments are welcome. Entries typically summarize a body of research and/or development that has been conducted over the course of a project, PhD thesis, etc. and particular weight is put on demonstrating the medical impact of the work.
The submission deadline for next year’s award is January 25, 2019. Please find more information on the official webpage.
