26th International Conference on Medical Image
Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention

October 8-12, 2023 - Vancouver/CANADA



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 third edition of CLINICCAI, a MICCAI event dedicated to healthcare practitioners willing to discuss their research on the 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 third 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 2023, allowing participants to explore and get inspired by the other scientific sessions, workshops and social happenings of the biomedical conference.

MICCAI will take place from October 8th to 12th, 2023, at the Vancouver Convention Centre, Canada, and CLINICCAI will be held on October 10th. This will be the first time that CLINICCAI will be hosted in America.

Works to be presented will be selected based on an abstract submission evaluated by an international committee of physicians actively working in the field of clinical translation.

We look forward to welcoming you at CLINICCAI!


Healthcare practitioners are cordially invited to submit your latest translational research in medical image computing, computer-assisted intervention, and medical robotics for presentation at the upcoming third edition of CLINICCAI. The event will be an exciting platform for multidisciplinary research teams and start-ups to showcase their innovative work.

To submit your abstract, please follow the Submission Guidelines and use Microsoft's CMT platform. Keep an eye out for the release of the important dates and timeline, and make sure to stay tuned for updates.

All submissions will undergo rigorous peer-review by physicians in the CLINICCAI committees. Committees comprise international members who are actively involved in the translation of technology from multiple and different domains.

Please note that presenting authors must be healthcare practitioners, such as physicians, nurses, technicians, and others, who are committed to registering for the conference (discounted registration will be available).

All presentations will compete for the CLINICCAI Best Presentation Award, which will be announced at the end of the event and is sponsored by the Institute of Image-Guided Surgery (IHU Strasbourg).

We look forward to receiving your abstracts and seeing you at CLINICCAI!

CLINICCAI will consider original works focusing on the preclinical or clinical translation of medical image computing, computer-assisted interventions, and healthcare robotics. Submissions should be original, written in standard English, and limited to a maximum of 600 words. The first and presenting author should be a healthcare practitioner.


Full title: The title should be concise, specific, and informative. Please limit the length of the title to 150 characters. Whenever possible, include study type (e.g., first-in-animal, first-in-human, clinical trial, etc.).

Authors: The first author must be the healthcare practitioner presenting at CLINICCAI.

Affiliations: Please limit the affiliations to two per author.

Presenting author: Please provide the full name, affiliation, and contact details (email, phone number) of the presenting author.

Keywords: Please provide three to five keywords.

Key information: Please limit to 100 words.

Research question: State the aim based on the study hypothesis or goal/purpose.

Findings: Focus on primary outcome(s) and finding(s).

Meaning: State the key conclusion and implication.

Manuscript: Please limit to 600 words.

Introduction: Summarize the context, the addressed clinical need, the hypothesis, and aim of your work.

Material and methods: Include a description of the device being tested (development, performance, etc.), the experimental setting, study outcomes, and analysis.

Results: Avoid referencing results not yet available at the time of submission. Tables, pictures, and illustrations should be on a separate page at the end of the manuscript.

Discussion and Conclusion: Emphasize new and important findings and aspects of the study, and the conclusions to be drawn, focusing on the potential to impact clinical care. Include the limitations and propose improvements whenever possible.

References: A total of ten references following the AMA style (10th ed.).
