Title: The SPL: a quarter century of research and translation in technology and biomedicine


Sjoerd Vos was one of three invited lecturers for the third ExploreDTI workshop organised by the PROVIDI lab at University Medical Center Utrecht, the Netherlands, on March 27-29 2017. This workshop was a mix of background and technical lectures on diffusion MRI, with hands-on session on how to analyse diffusion MRI data in ExploreDTI.

Our paper titled "Unified Tracking and Shape Estimation for Concentric Tube Robots", led by Alessandro Vandini, was accepted for publication at the IEEE Trans. Robotics. The paper is the first to propose a joint energy optimisation framework that handles the tracking and 3D shape estimation of continuum robots simultaneously. Please find the pre-print here.


Sjoerd Vos was one of ten invited lecturers for the first Neuroimaging course organised by the British Chapter of the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE), hosted at the Chalfont Centre for Epilepsy, Chalfont St Peter, UK, on March 10-11 2017. With lecture topics ranging from MR imaging physics to neuroradiological interpretation of clinical data, and afternoon sessions including hands-on educationals, the course aimed at providing a broad overview of the benefits that neuroimaging can have in epilepsy care and research.
