The 5-day conference includes a full program of workshops, tutorials and keynote presentations, and will be supported by an online interactive exhibition. Professor Sir Michael Brady FRS will address the conference on the topic of “Oncological Image Analysis,” and Professor Koji Ikuta from Nagoya University in Japan will deliver his keynote presentation on “Nano and Micro Robotics for Future Biomedicine”.
In an addition to this year’s MICCAI program, conference organizers have invited two leading figures in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to share with students and research fellows their journey in basic sciences research and how to foster effective collaboration between engineering and clinical medicine. Sir Peter Mansfield FRS, physicist and Nobel Laureate, and Professor Donald Longmore OBE FRCS Ed FRCR, surgeon and inventor, will hold “An Audience with the Pioneers” on Tuesday 22nd September.
Now in its 12th year, the MICCAI conference attracts world-leading scientists, engineers and clinicians from a wide range of disciplines associated with medical imaging and computer assisted surgery. The venue for MICCAI 2009 will be the main campus of Imperial College London in South Kensington.
