We are pleased to announce that Crispin Schneider was awarded the David Dunn medal for the best oral presentation at the Association of Laparoscopic Surgeons of Great Britain and Ireland 2015 annual scientific meeting. Crispin is a clinician who works as part of a research team that is currently developing an image guidance system for laparoscopic liver surgery. The proceedings will soon be published in Surgical Endoscopy.
Dr Tom Vercauteren will be delivering a seminar as part of the Hamlyn Winter School on Surgical Imaging and Vision on Thursday 10 December 2015, 11.00am - 12.30pm. The talk is titled "Real-time image computing for fiber-bundle-based optical imaging devices: from diagnosis to therapy guidance"

Dr. Christos Bergeles from TIG co-organises the Hamlyn Winter School on Surgical Imaging and Vision 2015. The School, attracting industrial members, early and late career researchers, and clinicians, aims to present fundamental theoretical concepts and state of the art advances in the field of surgical robot vision. This year, 21 international participants are attending. The schools kicks off with talks from international speakers from ETH Zurich, UCL, Siemens Medical, U Rennes, IRCAD and UBC and continues with student-led projects to be presented in Pecha Kucha style.
This year, the school is supported by EPSRC through an Institutional Support Grant. Please find more information here.
We are delighted to announce that Frederik Barkhof has joined University College London as Professor of Neuroradiology, in effect from Monday 1st of October.
Whilst at UCL Professor Barkhof will work equally with the Institute of Neurology at the Faculty of Brain Sciences and the Institute of Biomedical Engineering at the Faculty of Engineering.
A total of 14 TIG members participated in MICCAI 2015, which was held in Munich, Germany from 5th – 9th October 2015. Our work this year covered areas ranging from neuroimaging and imaging genetics to fetal imaging and ophthalmology. A full list of papers which were accepted from members of TIG can be found here. Videos of many of these papers can be found here.
We would also like to thank Nassir Navab and Joachim Hornegger for organising such a great event!
See you next year in Istanbul...
The TIG team had two awards at this year's MICCAI:
Andre Altman received the "Best paper award" @ MLMI (Bernard Ng, Anna Milazzo, and Andre Altmann, “Node-based Gaussian Graphical Model for Identifying Discriminative Brain Regions from Connectivity Graphs“).
