CVPR Daily - Monday

The 8th edition of the CVPR Medical Computer Vision workshop was held virtually on June 20, 2021. The workshop was organized by Qi Dou (The Chinese University of Hong Kong), Vasileios Belagiannis (Universität Ulm, Germany), Le Lu (PAII Inc., USA), Nicolas Padoy (University of Strasbourg, France), Lena Maier-Hein (German Cancer Research Center), and Tal Arbel ( McGill University, Canada). The MCV workshop aims to bring closer the medical image computing and computer-assisted intervention community and the computer vision community in general, to provide a dedicated forum for idea exchanges, potential new collaborative and interdisciplinary efforts, and brainstorming new machine learning and computer vision applications in healthcare. Improved from last year, the workshop offers a larger number of speakers up to 16 invited keynote presentations covering cutting edge research topics from distinguished world-class leaders from both academia, industry and clinicians in the field. The talks were delivered either through live steaming or pre-recorded videos. After each session of 4 talks, there is a live Q&A panel where audience members asked the speakers questions over chat and got answers within zoom. A total of around 500 attendees joined the event, with extensive discussions on latest work in progress, overview of recent technological advances, outstanding clinical needs, remaining challenges and opportunities. The schedule and the recorded talks can be found here. The workshop starts with an extraordinary talk from Nassir Navab , Professor at Technical University of Munich, presenting a great spectrum of ideas and decade of research works on computer vision techniques for computer assisted intervention. He described a family of exciting works on image processing, virtual reality, 3D reconstruction in ICU and surgical phase recognition and high-level understandings. Showing that computer vision gives more and more magic for surgical data science, he also shared constructive insights for future of the field. Parvin Mousavi , Professor at Queen’s University, gave an excellent talk about AI for cancer surgery with insights on reimagining surgical oncology in the age of learning models, and showcased how her team’s developed advanced intelligent image processing techniques can be used intraoperatively. by Qi Dou (CUHK, 16 DAILY CVPR Monday Workshop Qi Dou
