UCL Medical Image Computing Summer School (MedICSS)
11 – 15 July 2022, UCL (virtual)

The 8th UCL MedICSS summer school is fast approaching! MedICSS 2022 will allow early-career scientists and students to learn about the newest developments in medical image computing through a series of lectures from world-leading expert speakers and hands-on computational projects.

Registration for MedICSS 2022 is closed.

We can confirm that the scientific content of the 2022 Summer School, including lectures and projects, will be available in full online. We may plan some in-person social events to complement the MedICSS programme, although this is by no means guaranteed in the current circumstances! We emphasise that participants can fully participate in the summer school virtually from anywhere in the world.

Medical image computing is a core research theme at University College London (UCL) with internationally recognised activities crossing multiple centres, institutes and departments. Our long-standing focus on medical imaging and devices, data science, artificial intelligence and robotics was recognised with a recent EPSRC-award for a Centre for Doctoral Training in Intelligent, Integrated Imaging In Healthcare. Through the CDT and with allied academic staff, projects at UCL cover a wide variety of imaging modalities, devices, theories and applications.

MedICSS 2022 will allow early career scientists to engage with world-leading medical imaging experts from academia and industry. Delegates will learn about the newest developments across the field through a series of lectures by scientific leaders, and will engage in active learning through interactive computational group projects encouraging collaboration, critical thinking, and scientific discovery.

We invite applications to MedICSS 2022 from enthusiastic doctoral students and researchers who wish to take advantage of this exciting opportunity to learn about the latest medical image computing research taking place at CMIC, WEISS, UCL, and beyond.

MedICSS is supported by the Centre for Medical Image Computing (CMIC) and the Wellcome/EPSRC Centre for Interventional and Surgical Sciences (WEISS) at UCL, and is endorsed by the Centre for Doctoral Training in Intelligent, Integrated Imaging In Healthcare.

MedICSS 2022 is endorsed by The International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM).

MedICCS 2022 is a MICCAI endorsed event and abides by the Code of Conduct of the MICCAI society.

Course Themes
Practical Sessions
Social Events
The five day course covers different topics including: Acquisition/Reconstruction, Image guided interventions, Image processing and analysis, Modelling, and Machine learning. Practical and interactive sessions throughout the week will be used to encourage communication and hands on learning. These will include a poster session and a hands-on mini-project. We may plan some in person social events in London to complement the MEDICSS programme, depending on the covid situation.
