Upcoming events and calls!

Good times all around for all things medical visualization, as there are many activities coming up! Here is a brief round-up:

  • A new online workshop series on bridging visual computing with radiation oncology is starting tomorrow with its first event! Please find more details and registration information at the webpage. The first event will be a symposium: “The symposium will feature invited thematic talks from two specialists: Uulke van der Heide (medical physics) and Noeska Smit (medical visualization), followed by a first round of discussions and interactions.”
  • If you’re working in a specialized application area within biomedical visualization or see opportunities for an underexplored area to thrive, consider submitting an Application Spotlight session proposal to IEEE VIS to draw the attention of the visualization community to this area! Check out the full call here and submit your short proposal by April 30th.
  • The first Bio+MedVis Spring School will take place virtually from May 17 to 21st. Participants can anticipate a week full of excellent talks, given by leading experts in Biological and Medical Visualization. The program is enriched by mentoring sessions, focusing on Ph.D. studies and visualization design, practical tutorials on visualization tools and libraries, and invited talks by experts from clinical practice and industry. Register for free via the official webpage by May 3rd.
  • The Karl-Heinz Höhne Award will be handed out this year again for excellent contributions in the field of medical visualization. Young scientists are invited to apply with a master thesis or publications in the context of a not yet accomplished doctoral thesis which has been published or submitted between January 2018 and May 2021. Please find out more and apply here by May 21th!
  • The EuroGraphics Workshop on Visual Computing in Biology and Medicine (VCBM) will be held in Paris and online from the 22nd to the 24th of September. They have just released their call for papers as well. Please check out the full call here and submit your papers by July 2nd.

I hope to see you at some if not all of these events 🙂 If you know of more relevant events for our community, feel free to share them in the comments section!
