MICCAI 2018 Educational Challenge

The MICCAI Educational Challenge is on!

Submit your educational materials and tutorials (papers, presentations, blog posts etc.) to help the community!

The main goal is to provide educational material for researchers in the field of medical image computing and computer-assisted interventions. With the MICCAI Educational Challenge, we hope to build a library of tutorials relevant to the MICCAI community and created by its members. Establishing a comprehensive collection will make the field more accessible and shorten the startup time for new students.

Highly encouraged are "How to make it work” tutorials focused on implementation details, since these are often not discussed in papers.

Submissions are open until August 10rd, 2018.
The winner will receive a $500 prize, sponsored by the MICCAI society!
