2017 MICCAI Fellows



MICCAI Fellowship is bestowed upon members of the community, as identified by their peers, in recognition of their exceptional contributions to Medical Image Computing and/or Computer-assisted Interventions, as well as to their contributions to the MICCAI society as a whole. The 2017 MICCAI Society Fellows election process consisted of Fellows nominating and then voting for candidates with the top 3 candidates with most votes recommended for election. The recommendations of the Fellows were then ratified by the MICCAI Society Board (Board members with any conflict of interest did not vote). The Fellows Elections officer for 2017 was Terry Peters (Robarts Research Institute, Canada).
