CFP: Open Source and Open Data for MICCAI

Open Source and Open Data for MICCAI
3rd Annual Workshop

This workshop features peer-reviewed submissions that describe the 
available data and software of MICCAI.  We encourage submissions that 
are complimentary to papers being presented at the main conference, as 
well as submissions on novel topics.

Goals of the workshop: Share, replicate, extend, and compare software 
and data presented at the main MICCAI conference.  Provide a forum for 
publishing and discussing the full set of parameters and processes that 
are needed to achieve results presented at the main MICCAI conference. 
   Announce new software initiatives relevant to the MICCAI community.

Important dates for the workshop:
     July 1: Deadline for submissions
     September 1: Deadline for reviews
     September 5: Notification of acceptance
     October 29: MICCAI conference begins
     November 2: Workshop at MICCAI

The receipt, review, and publication of submissions to this workshop 
will use the open-access Insight Journal.  Authors are encouraged to 
include other files with their submission, particularly videos, code, 
and data.  Also, submissions are immediately available to any registered 
member of the Insight Journal (registration is free); and any member may 
contribute a public, peer-review of any submission.  Authors may also 
post responses to reviews and upload revisions to their submissions.

On September 1, the workshop committee will consider the posted reviews, 
as well as the intent of the workshop, to select papers for oral and 
poster presentation. Those decisions will be announced on or about 
September 5.

When appropriate, authors will be offered the opportunity to have their 
code distributed with the Insight Toolkit (ITK).  However, the use of 
ITK is not a requisite for submitting to the workshop; featuring other 
toolkits is strongly encouraged.
