IPCAI & MICCAI 2018

After my absence last year in Barcelona πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡Έ (IPCAI) and Quebec πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ (MICCAI), I am very much looking forward to attending both conferences this year.

IPCAI (Information Processing in Computer-Assisted Interventions) will take place from June 20th to 21st in Berlin πŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ, and MICCAI (Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention) from Sept 16th to 20th in Granada πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡Έ.

I am especially excited for MICCAI: ImFusion is a proud Silver Sponsor, so we will have a nice booth there with lots of demos – I am hoping for interesting discussions! Talk to you soon!

Best New IEEE EMBS Student Chapter

A little less than a year ago, we started an IEEE EMBS Student Chapter in Munich. I think our activities since then are worth mentioning:

  • 7 distinguished lectures
  • 3 field trips
  • 1 panel discussion
  • 1 membership promotion event and distribution of free goodies
  • More than 100 people participated in different activities
  • Raised more than € 5000 in sponsorship
  • Registration of e.V. in Germany

And finally, we have been selected for the best new chapter award:

EMBS Chapter activities provide valuable, local interactions among EMB members and members of the Biomedical community at both the student and
member stage. Annually, EMBS recognizes excellence at the Chapter level.

It is with great pleasure to inform you that your nomination for the Technical University Munich Chapter has been selected as the 2015 Best
New Student Chapter. The Chapter is commended for the supporting activities, outreach and promotion of IEE EMBS to the local, student community.

EMBS is very pleased to bestow this prestigious award on you.

We award presentation will take place during the EMBC’15 conference in Milan. We are very happy that are recognized both on a local level and internationally, and we hope that we (Amit, Felix, Cristina, Yeshu and me) can continue with great activities in the future.
