Where to Meet Medical Augmented Reality People in 2012

Happy new year to all the readers of this blog and thanks a lot for your helpful feedback!

We would like to start this year with promoting Medical Augmented Reality related conferences and workshops where to publish research in 2012 and meet key people of our community. In case, you are organizing a conference, workshop or any comparable scientific gathering being not listed here and  intended to be or become a platform for Medical Augmented Reality people, please let me know!

  • ISMAR 2012: At the 11th IEEE International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality (ISMAR) you will meet key people of the Augmented Reality community. ISMAR is a place to publish your work e.g. on tracking, visualization, interaction, hardware-specific methods, user-studies and applications in the field of medicine, architecture, games, cultural heritage, arts, and learning environments.
  • MICCAI 2012: The conference MICCAI (Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention) is the major scientific platform for researchers being active in all kind of technology fields related to medical applications. Regularly, high level contributions from the field of Medical Augmented Reality are presented here. In 2011, MICCAI hosted the satellite workshop Augmented Environments for Computer Assisted Interventions (AE-CAI). We hope that the workshop will be again part of MICCAI in 2012 to become a major meeting point for the Medical Augmented Reality community.
  • VR 2012: The submission deadline of Virtual Reality 2012 (VR) has already passed; however, you can still visit the conference in March and meet key people of the Virtual and Augmented Reality community. Submission deadline of VR 2013 will be around September 2012.
  • MMVR 2012: The Medicine Meets Virtual Reality (MMVR) conference will take place in Newport Beach, California in February 2012. Submission deadline has already passed.
