EMERGE Workshop

The EMERGE workshop, organized by the MICCAI Student Board, is an exciting new event at the MICCAI 2024 conference, offering a platform for early-career researchers within the MICCAI community to showcase their work.

We aim to foster the educational and professional development of early-career researchers and support them in their journey to become independent investigators and mentors. The EMERGE workshop, organized by students for students, requires early-career researchers (maximum two years post PhD) to be primary investigators and occupy the first and last author positions on an 8-page paper. These papers will be published in Springer's LNCS format, and the most outstanding contributions will be invited to expand their work for potential publication in MELBA. The deadline for submissions is 24 June. To find out more information, visit our website for the EMERGE workshop.
