Dear MICCAI colleagues and friends,
The horizon of medical image computing and computer-assisted intervention is expanding, and its leading us to an unprecedented destination: Marrakesh, Morocco! Mark your calendars for 6-10 October 2024 as we embark on an unforgettable edition of MICCAI.
For the first time in its 27-edition history, MICCAI is gracing the African continent. Why is this so thrilling? Because MICCAI 2024 promises to be nothing short of groundbreaking. We will emphasise and extend the foundational and emerging research themes youve come to appreciate, from cutting-edge image computing and machine learning methods to clinical MICCAI insights and real-world applications.
Our keynote sessions? An exquisite blend of global intellect and fresh perspectives. Were particularly proud to host the first-ever keynote by an Africa-based researcher. Expect invigorating talks on inclusive and fair machine learning for medical imaging, low-cost imaging solutions, and the intricacies of image-guided surgery in resource-limited settings.
But beyond the science, MICCAI 2024 is an open invitation to dive into a cultural mosaic. Youll experience Morocco in all its grandeur from the timeless architecture of centuries-old towns, serene beaches, majestic Atlas mountains, to the enigmatic expanse of the Sahara. You will spot camels, cherish rides on Arabian horses, and navigate through the winding alleys of Marrakesh with its palatial beauty, luxurious hotels, vibrant nightlife, and culinary magic.
Another plus? Moroccos welcoming visa policy ensures that MICCAI 2024 will likely be the most diverse gathering in our history. Were making concerted efforts to ensure a record turnout from all corners of the globe, including from under-represented African and other low-income countries.
So, imagine this: Exceptional science. Relaxing ambiance. Exquisite landscapes. Diverse, brilliant minds from around the globe. All in one place.
See you all next year for MICCAI 2024 under the Moroccan sun.
