ESSAT endorses CLINICCAI 2021

CLINICCAI – Clinical Translation of Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Interventions- is a MICCAI event dedicated to healthcare practitioners willing to discuss their research on the more 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.


CLINICCAI will be a fantastic opportunity for healthcare practitioners to share their translational research experiences, discuss needs with more than 2500 scientists that annually attend the biomedical conference, network and become active members of the growing MICCAI community. The event will take place in parallel to MICCAI 2021, allowing participants to explore and get inspired by the other scientific sessions, workshops and social happenings of the biomedical conference.


In this first edition, CLINICCAI will be afully virtual event as the rest of MICCAI2021. It will be held on September 29, 2021. Scientific works selected based on an abstract submission will be presented by healthcare practitioners. A keynote presentation by Colonel Prof. Richard Satava, a pioneer in surgical technologies, and a panel discussion focused on clinical translation will be held in a plenary session jointly with MICCAI2021. Healthcare practitioners will be offered a discounted registration fee for the conference.
