3 July 2014, Munich Prof. Greg Hager, Chair of Computer Science at JHU, receives IAS Hans-Fischer-Senior-Fellowship We are very delighted to announce that Prof. Greg Hager Chair of Computer Science at Johns Hopkins University has been selected to receive the prestigious IAS Hans Fischer Senior Fellowship. This Fellowship is named after TUM Professor Hans Fischer (1881-1945), who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1930 for his pioneering work on hemoglobin and related structures. Outstanding international scientists, who intend to explore innovative, high-risk topics in their scientific research areas together with a TUM Research Group for a duration of three years, are eligible for a TUM-IAS Hans Fischer Senior Fellowship. This affiliation strengthens our strong links with JHU towards a joint center in computational medicine.
28 June 2014, Fukuoka, Japan Best Paper Award at IPCAI 2014 We got the Reviewers Best Paper Award at the 5th International Conference on Information Processing in Computer-Assisted Interventions (IPCAI 2014). IPCAI 2014 was held on June 28 in Fukuoka, Japan (co-located with CARS). Based on a highly selective double anonymous review process, IPCAI is aiming at organizing an event in which the best conference articles in computer assisted interventions are reviewed, selected, presented, and actively discussed.
10 June 2014, IMETUM Hörsaal Distinguished Lecture and GSISH talk by Dr. Bin Zheng: Increasing Role of Medical Images in Image-guided Surgery On a daily basis, surgeons refer to information presented in medical images before entering the OR. Once surgery starts, medical images have a more passive role in the action plan. The roles of medical images are often diagnostic (used as a map) rather than therapeutic (used as an assistant). In this presentation, I will discuss a few attempts we developed in the U of Alberta to enhance the role of medical images inside the operating room, exploring the impact of image-integrated concept on pre-surgery planning, surgical performance, and on surgeons’ mental readiness.
25 July 2014, Paper accepted at IEEE SciVis 2014 We are happy to announce that our paper Predicate-based Focus-and-Context Visualization for 3D Ultrasound got accepted at IEEE SciVis 2014, the premier forum for advances in scientific visualization. This year, the conference will be held in Paris, France.
