CLINICCAI 2024: Call for Abstracts (deadline extended)

Monday 12th February 2024

Dear Colleague,

You are kindly invited to submit your translational research on medical image computing, computer-assisted intervention, and healthcare robotics for presentation at CLINICCAI, a clinician-centered event at the 27th edition of the annual MICCAI conference.

Cliniccai2024The International Conference on Medical Image Computing and Computer-Assisted Intervention (MICCAI) annually hosts over 2.500 biomedical scientists discussing cutting-edge methods and applications in medical imaging and computer-assisted intervention. The fourth edition of CLINICCAI - Clinical Translation of Medical Image Computing and Computer-Assisted Interventions - at MICCAI 2024 aims to attract healthcare practitioners interested to discuss how recent methodological breakthroughs in medical imaging, deep learning, and other AI techniques can translate into value for patients and healthcare systems.

The event will take place in Marrakesh, Morocco on October 8, 2024. Healthcare practitioners are offered a discounted registration to MICCAI 2024 (October 6-10) and are invited to explore and get inspired by the scientific sessions, workshops, and social activities of the biomedical conference.

Healthcare practitioners involved in multidisciplinary research teams or start-ups are strongly encouraged to submit original works focusing on preclinical or clinical translation.

Topics of interest to CLINICCAI include, but are not limited to:

Digital patient and pathology
* Computer-aided diagnosis
* Predictive modeling of risks, diseases, and patients’ outcomes
* Advanced preoperative planning and surgical guidance
* Image-guided interventions
* Immersive technologies in radiology and surgery (mixed, augmented, and virtual reality)
* Technologies to enhance patient safety and quality improvement
* Video-based assessment of surgical procedures
* Clinical decision support systems
* Automated skill assessment
* Big data analytics in healthcare
* Ergonomics and human factors in surgery
* Team dynamics assessment
* Surgical data science
* Medical education and training using technology
* Virtual reality simulators
* Serious gaming for training
* Digital surgery
* Healthcare robotics
* Surgical coaching
* Hospital and OR management systems
* Device and strategies for OR translation
* Personalized medicine and precision healthcare
* Health information technology interoperability

Based on feedback from local program chairs we are postponing the initial abstract submission deadline by 14 days due to Ramadan.

Abstracts no longer than 600 words should be submitted via Microsoft’s CMT platform by April 29, 2024 (23:59 CET) according to guidelines available on the website. Submissions will be reviewed by physicians from the CLINICCAI committees and authors will be notified about the decision by June 7, 2024.

Presenting authors must be healthcare practitioners who commit to register to the conference and travel to Marrakesh. All presentations will compete for the CLINICCAI Best Presentation Award, to be announced at the end of the event.

Please feel free to forward this Call for Abstracts to interested peers and do not hesitate to contact us at for further information.

We look forward to your welcoming you to CLINICCAI!
