MICCAI 2014 Workshop on Deep Brain Stimulation Methodological Challenges - 2nd edition
14 Sep 2014 Boston (United States)


!!! Last practical details about the workshop !!!

Location: MIT campus, Stata Center (building 32), room 32-449. This is a Frank Gehry building !

The workshop starts at 8 (welcome and coffee).
The first session starts at 8:30.
3 sessions of 1 h each + 2 invited talks + 1 industrial session + 2 panel discussions.
The complete program is available on the website: http://dbsmc2-2014.sciencesconf.org/resource/page/id/6

Please note that you'll first have to get your registration material at the registration desk in the lobby of MIT's Kresge Auditorium (or register, if not done yet). It will be open at 7am.
There will probably be a lot of people there. Please try to go early, so that you can join the workshop from the very beginning. There is a 10 min walk to the Stata Center.

We will provide a projector, a microphone, a laser pointer and a podium for the speaker. We will also have laptops, you can just bring USB sticks, if it's more convinient. 


The workshop will be held on September 14th.

This MICCAI workshop aims at establishing a forum for discussing advanced methods related to surgical Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS). After a 1st successful edition during MICCAI 2012 that mostly focused on preoperative planning and per-operative procedures, this edition aims at discussing the potential of new imaging sequences and new types of stimulation electrodes, as well as an update on anatomo-clinical atlases.

During the past decade, DBS has grown in importance for the treatment of movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease. However, planning such interventions still remains difficult, either for defining accurately the location of the anatomical structure to stimulate, determining an optimal position for the electrode, or dealing with brain shift.

This workshop aims at gathering researchers and clinicians in various fields such as medical image computing, computer graphics, computational modeling, computer-aided surgical planning, and interventional imaging to discuss the recent advances and the challenges to address to improve the performance of DBS interventions. It is expected to be a forum of discussion and exchanges between young and experimented scientists and clinicians.
