Networking Opportunities & Cultural Immersion at MICCAI 2024

This October, the MICCAI conference will be held in Africa for the first time, in the vibrant city of Marrakesh! Our Student Board members Benjamin Killeen, Paul Wilson and Yanis Miracoui are working hard to organize social events that will be held around Marrakesh alongside MICCAI 2024, allowing students to experience the local culture and network with others!

In addition, our Sports Officer Constantin Ulrich is organizing sports activities that will be held in Marrakesh during the conference, offering a fun and active way to connect with peers outside of conference hours! Moreover, our Professional Events Officers, Amin Ranem and Advaith Veturi, are diligently organising events for MICCAI 2024 aimed at enhancing the professional growth of students in the community, including discussions about career opportunities in both academia and industry. The MICCAI Student Board is committed to hosting events that elevate the student experience at the conference, and more details on events held at the conference will be announced soon!
