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!
