7th International Conference
Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention
Rennes - Saint-Malo, France
September 26-30, 2004
Scope of the Conference
MICCAI is the premier international
conference with in-depth papers for medical image computing, computer-assisted
intervention and medical robotics. The multidisciplinary nature of these
emerging fields brings together clinicians, bioscientists, computer
scientists, engineers, physicists & other researchers who are contributing
to, and need to keep abreast of, advances in the methodology and applications.
All contributions will be published by Springer-Verlag
in the LNCS book series. All sessions (oral and poster) follow a single-track
format, rather than parallel sessions. The conference gives equal weight
to posters and oral presentations and the selected presentation mode
is based on the most appropriate communication medium. Non-overlapping
oral and poster sessions ensure that all attendees have the opportunity
to interact personally with presenters.
Call for Papers
Pre-Submission Deadline: March 01,
Final Submission Deadline: March
Papers may be regular (up to 8 pages, including
all references, tables, and figures) or communications (up to 2 pages).
We would especially like to encourage submission of papers that demonstrate
clinical relevance and application. We invite submissions for MICCAI
2004 in one of the following formats (LNCS Style):
Two-page contributions will be reviewed by a specific review panel,
and will be assessed for quality and, if accepted, will be for poster
presentation only. Short papers should relate to preliminary results
of scientific work, reports of clinical applications and validation,
new ideas or embryonic research or software dedicated to clinical
applications with validation.
Regular (8-page) papers will be reviewed by members of the review
panel, and assessed for quality and best means of presentation:
- Poster presentation is the normal means of presentation
at MICCAI. Regular papers accepted for this means of presentation
will be previewed in sessions of 45-second "teasers",
in which the presenter provides the audience with a quick summary
of the work. We subsequently break from the oral presentations to
allow ample time for the audience to visit the posters and engage
directly with the presenting author(s). All regular posters will
be on display for the full duration of the meeting.
- Oral presentation is conducted in a single track,
so that the audience can attend every presentation. The Program
Committee will select the papers they judge to be most effectively
presented orally and will group them into appropriate sessions

for questions related to paper content.
Tutorials will complement and enhance
the scientific program of MICCAI 2004. The purpose is to provide educational
material for training new professionals in the field of medical image
processing, medical robotics and image assisted intervention (students,
clinicians, new researchers in the field). They will also provide discussions
of technical and application issues.

Chair for questions.
