CAMP students and alumni awarded prestigious MICCAI Awards

We are very proud to announce that two of our alumni, one current PhD candidate, and one BMC Master student were awarded prestigious international scientific awards at MICCAI 2013:

  • PhD candidate Philipp Matthies received an honorable mention for his paper entitled "First use of mini gamma cameras for intra-operative robotic SPECT reconstruction".
  • BMC Master student Oliver Zettinig was honored with the MICCAI 2013 Young Scientist Award for his outstanding performance in the course of his Master's thesis. His paper entitled "Towards patient-specific models of cardiac electrophysiology thanks to a clever personalization of a concise model from clinical ECG measurements" was a collaborative work with Siemens Corporate Research in Princeton, US.
  • Dr. Darko Zikic (PhD defense in 2011) was also awarded the MICCAI 2013 Young Scientist Award for his paper entitled "An elegant, scalable, and computationally efficient solution for multi-atlas-based segmentation with important implications for large-scale data analysis".
  • Together with his colleague Dr. Ben Glocker (PhD defense in 2010), Dr. Zikic further received the Medical Image Analysis Journal Award on MICCAI Special Issue awarding their paper "Neighbourhood approximation using randomized forests", published within Medical Image Analysis MICCAI 2012 Special Issue.

In the course of its annual conference, the international society on Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention (MICCAI) awards the 10 most outstanding works of young researchers (up to 2 years after PhD completion) with the Young Scientist Award (first 5) and the honorable mention (second 5).

The original announcement and all other awardees can be found on the MICCAI 2013 website.
