Page Background As expected, the Interactive Medical Image Computing (IMIC)

workshop held on Monday was very

successful. The IMIC is co-organized

for the third year now by Steve

Piper, Bjoern Menze, Yi Gao, Tina

Kapur & Tammy Riklin Raviv. We

assisted at three great talks by our

planners speakers:

Dr. Tina Kapur

,

Prof. Sandy Wells

both of

Harvard

Medical School

and

Prof. Leo

Joskowicz

of the

Hebrew University

of Jerusalem

.

Some notes about the IMIC in

general:

Interactive systems are widely used

in research and clinical practice, yet

most scientific venues make it

impossible to fully communicate

exactly how they work. IMIC

combines live demos, hands-on

examples,

and

scientific

publications to support exchange of

ideas among a community of like-

minded researchers. IMIC seeks to

showcase and disseminate the best

examples of dynamic interaction

with medical imagery.

What is special about the IMIC?

The organizers replaced the

traditional poster sessions with live

demo sessions in which the

presenters are presenting their

work using their laptops (and

sometimes other facilities) while

allowing their peers a hands-on

experience (see below images). This

year IMIC used an online voting

system to allow the workshop

attendees themselves to chose the

best demo prize winner. The prize

was deservedly awarded to

Simon

Drouin

, a PhD student in the group

of

Prof. Louis Collins of McGill

University

for his excellent demo

and paper.
