MedICSS will take place in the main UCL Bloomsbury Campus. Specific location for the lectures will be announced soon.
University College London (UCL) was founded in 1826 as the first university institution established in London and the first in England to be entirely secular, to admit students regardless of their religion, and to admit women on equal terms with men. UCL’s main campus is located in the Bloomsbury area of central London, with a number of institutes and teaching hospitals elsewhere in central London. UCL is organised into 11 constituent faculties, within which there are over 100 departments, institutes and research centres. UCL has around 36,000 students and 11,000 staff (including around 6,000 academic staff and 980 professors). Measured by number of students it is both the largest higher education institution in London and largest postgraduate institution in the UK. UCL is part of three of the 11 biomedical research centres established by the NHS in England and is a founding member of the Francis Crick Institute and UCL Partners, the world’s largest academic health science centre.
The Centre for Medical Image Computing (CMIC) combines excellence in medical imaging sciences with innovative computational methodology. Our research finds application in biomedical research and in healthcare with a particular emphasis on translation of new computational methods in imaging sciences to the clinic. The research of the group focuses on detailed structural and functional analysis in neurosciences, imaging to guide interventions, image analysis in drug discovery, imaging in cardiology and imaging in oncology. The Centre, based in Engineering, has very close links with the Clinical Sciences, Life Sciences and associated Clinical Institutes, in particular the Institute of Neurology and the Institute of Child Health. As part of UCL’s coordinated activity in medical and biomedical imaging sciences we work closely with the Centre for Advanced Biomedical Imaging (CABI) for preclinical and experimental imaging, Academic Radiology, Surgery, The Dementia Research Centre, The Centre for Neuroimaging Techniques (CNT), the London Centre for Nanotechnology and the Centre for Healthcare Informatics and Medical Education (CHIME).
Accommodation in London is very varied and the central location of UCL means that attendees will have a wide range of options. One possibility is to investigate the availability of accommodation is the UCL student halls of residence which are often available during the summer months and can provide rooms close the venue. A list of nearby hotels is also available here and other alternatives can be found in alternative student accommodation providers.
