Welcome to CLINICCAI
Clinical Translation of Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Interventions

Dear Colleagues,

It is a great pleasure to invite you to the second edition of CLINICCAI, a MICCAI event dedicated to healthcare practitioners willing to discuss their research on translational and clinical aspects of medical image computing, computer-assisted interventions, and medical robotics.

The Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention Society (the MICCAI Society) is a leading community of biomedical scientists, engineers, and clinicians working on advances in the methodology and applications of these fields since 1998. Recent methodological improvements and new clinical applications enabled by breakthroughs in medical imaging, deep learning and other AI techniques motivated MICCAI to create a clinical day to reinforce its clinical ties and explore further how to generate value for patients and healthcare systems.

The second edition of CLINICCAI will be a fantastic opportunity for healthcare practitioners to share their translational research experiences, discuss needs with biomedical researchers with diverse backgrounds, network and become active members of the growing MICCAI community. The event will take place in parallel to MICCAI 2022, allowing participants to explore and get inspired by the other scientific sessions, workshops and social happenings of the biomedical conference.

In its second edition, CLINICCAI will be held from September 18th to 22nd 2022 in the Resort World Convention Centre Singapore. This will be the first MICCAI (and CLINICCAI!) conference hosted in Southeast Asia.

Works to be presented will be selected based on an abstract submission evaluated by an international committee of physicians. Renowned practitioners in the field will be invited for keynote lectures in a joint session with the main MICCAI2022 program.

We look forward to welcoming you at CLINICCAI!


Healthcare practitioners involved in multidisciplinary research teams or start-ups are kindly invited to submit their translational research on medical image computing, computer-assisted intervention, and medical robotics for presentation at the second edition of CLINICCAI.

Abstracts should be structured according to the Submission Guidelines and should be submitted via Microsoft's CMT by May 13, 2022.

Submissions will be peer-reviewed by physicians in the CLINICCAI committees, and authors will be notified about the decision by June 24th, 2022.

Presenting authors must be healthcare practitioners (e.g., physicians, nurses, technicians) committed to register to the conference (discounted registration). All presentations will compete for the CLINICCAI Best Presentation Award, which will be announced at the end of the event and sponsored by the Institute of Image-Guided Surgery (IHU Strasbourg).


Topics of interest to CLINICCAI include, but are not limited to:

  • Digital patient
  • Digital pathology
  • Computer aided diagnosis
  • Predictive modelling of risks, diseases and patients' outcomes
  • Advanced preoperative planning and surgical guidance
  • Image-guided interventions
  • Immersive technologies in surgery (mixed, augmented and virtual reality)
  • Technologies to enhance patient safety and quality improvement
  • Video-based assessment of surgical procedures
  • Automated skill assessment
  • Ergonomics and human factors in surgery
  • Team dynamics assessment
  • Surgical data science
  • Digital surgery
  • Healthcare robotics
  • Virtual reality simulators
  • Surgical coaching
  • Serious gaming for training
  • Hospital and OR management systems
  • Device and strategies for OR translation
