Researchers of under-represented origins (Latin America, South/South-east Asian, Africa, and Middle-East) who work in the field of Medical Image Computing and Computer-Aided Interventions (MICCAI) are barely represented in the community. For instance, the submission rate from those countries neared 4% in MICCAI 2020, where only 6 countries out of 103 had accepted papers in MICCAI 2020 —less than a 2% contribution to the accepted paper pool.
The RISE-MICCAI network was recently founded to empower and connect clinicians, young and senior researchers, students, engineers, innovators, and academics in low-middle income countries and build geographically diverse synergies and collaborations in the fields of AI, medical image analysis, and global health. This will lead to producing cross-continent research works dealing with global healthcare and medical imaging challenges.
The main objectives of RISE-MICCAI are to:
This application is NOT restricted to researchers in low-middle-income countries. We encourage and value diversity and inclusiveness in the MICCAI community. The RISE network welcomes new members, regardless of age, gender, identity, race, and ethnicity.
We never rise alone, we always rise together!
