2015 Winter Project Week
Welcome to the 20th Project week page!
The 20th PROJECT EVENT It was held June 23-27, 2014 at MIT. It recorded 44 registered attendees, who worked on 42 projects. These attendees represented 11 academic sites (Brigham and Women’s Hospital, CNMS, Massachusetts General Hospital, University of Utah, University of Iowa, University of Michigan, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Queen’s University, University of Kiel, Imperial College, Robarts Institute) and 4 companies (GE Global Research, Kitware, Koh Young, Isomics Inc).
Note of Remembrance
This project week is dedicated to Ferenc Jolesz MD, leader and mentor to many in the image guided therapy community. There is a tribute page to Ferenc for people who want to share their thoughts.
Founded in 2005, the National Alliance for Medical Image Computing (NAMIC), was chartered with building a computational infrastructure to support biomedical research as part of the NIH funded NCBC program. The work of this alliance has resulted in important progress in algorithmic research, an open source medical image computing platform 3D Slicer, built using VTK, ITK, CMake, and CDash, and the creation of a community of algorithm researchers, biomedical scientists and software engineers who are committed to open science. This community meets twice a year in an event called Project Week.
Project Week is a semi-annual event which draws 80-120 researchers. As of August 2014, it is a MICCAI endorsed event. The participants work collaboratively on open-science solutions for problems that lie on the interfaces of the fields of computer science, mechanical engineering, biomedical engineering, and medicine. In contrast to conventional conferences and workshops the primary focus of the Project Weeks is to make progress in projects (as opposed to reporting about progress). The objective of the Project Weeks is to provide a venue for this community of medical open source software creators. Project Weeks are open to all, are publicly advertised, and are funded through fees paid by the attendees. Participants are encouraged to stay for the entire event.
Project Week activities: Everyone shows up with a project. Some people are working on the platform. Some people are developing algorithms. Some people are applying the tools to their research problems. We begin the week by introducing projects and connecting teams. We end the week by reporting progress. In addition to the ongoing working sessions, breakout sessions are organized ad-hoc on a variety of special topics. These topics include: discussions of software architecture, presentations of new features and approaches and topics such as Image-Guided Therapy.
Several funded projects use the Project Week as a place to convene and collaborate. These include NAC, NCIGT, QIICR, and OCAIRO. The next event in this ongoing series will occur in Barcelona, Spain in June 2015.
A summary of all previous Project Events is available here.
This project week is an event endorsed by the MICCAI society.
