The 2022 MICCAI conference will be held in Resort World Convention Centre Singapore. The conference will host a variety of satellite events that will include workshops, challenges and tutorials. Tutorials are educational sessions offered by expert researchers and scientists on topics relevant to the MICCAI community. The purpose of tutorials is to provide educational material for all career levels including students, early career scientists, professionals seeking continued education, and established researchers. Tutorials should focus on a specific theme, e.g., methodology, clinical application, or software tool, and organizers should explain why the theme is timely and of interest to the MICCAI community. The tutorial format may combine lectures, demonstrations, hands-on sessions and hackathons.
Tutorials covering aspects of open science, reproducible research, and soft skills development are also welcome. Examples of topics from previous tutorials include, but are not limited to, privacy-preserving machine learning, Python-based radiogenomics, funding pursuit, disease progression modeling and meta-learning. Proposals related to accessible, fair and responsible healthcare are particularly endorsed.
MICCAI 2022 tutorials will take place on Sunday, September 18, and Thursday, September 22, 2022. Each tutorial will be organized as a half-day (8:00 am-12:30 pm, or 1:30 pm-5:00 pm) or a full-day (8:00 am-5:00 pm) event.
The deadline for proposal submissions is December 26, 2021. Tutorials with substantial overlap will be merged. Final decisions will be announced on February 25, 2022.
Tutorial Organizers are expected to:
- Build an independent website for their tutorial
- Arrange advertising of the tutorial compilation of the tutorial program
- Prepare electronic versions of teaching material and supporting software, and submit them to the MICCAI 2022 organizing committee for distribution to registered participants.
Tutorial organizers must complete the submission form at the link below:
https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/MICCAIT2022. The contents of the form are included in this call for easier reference.
Due to the limited number of rooms available, and for the interest of the participants, a selection will be performed within the submitted workshops, tutorials and challenges. The selection criteria for tutorial events will include:
- Relevance of the topic to the MICCAI community. Emergent subjects will be favorably considered if the link with the MICCAI community is clearly established.
- Quality of the educational objectives
- Expertise of the team
- Targeted audience
- EDI (equality, diversity and inclusion) related criteria
Authors will assign to the MICCAI Society the right to distribute the tutorial material to MICCAI members and to tutorial and conference attendees, independently of the copyright ownership planned by the tutorial organizers. It is up to the tutorial organizers to obtain corresponding agreement of the instructors and, if necessary, consent from journals/publishers to utilize the aforementioned material.
MICCAI 2022 will not cover travel arrangements, registration fees and faculty compensation for the organizers of satellite events. Organizers are allowed to find external funding to cover expenses.
The MICCAI 2022 satellite events committee has limited funds for waiving the registration fees for a number of speakers, including those from outside the MICCAI community. Organizers should send a request to email@example.com with justification for their request. Organizers and speakers who plan to attend only the satellite event they are involved in are expected to register for the event unless registration fee waivers have been requested and granted.
