IJCARS Best Paper Award
The MICCAI IJCARS Best Paper Award recognizes the highest quality paper in the Special Issue on the main MICCAI conference published in the International Journal of Computer Assisted Radiology and Surgery (IJCARS) journal. Typically one award is issued each year, but the journal may decide to split the award between two winners.
The definition of and guidelines for this award can be found here.
