2016 Summer Project Week
Welcome to the web page for the 23rd Project Week!
The 23rd Project Week open source hackathon is being held in conjunction with the 30th International Conference on Computer Assisted Radiology and Surgery (CARS) and the IPCAI 2016 conferences in Heidelberg, Germany. Please go through this page for information, and if you have questions, please contact Tina Kapur, PhD.
- Dates: Monday June 20th to Saturday June 25th, 2016, with one day break on Tuesday June 21st to attend IPCAI.
- Location: Heidelberg, Germany.
- Getting to Heidelberg: Most will fly into Frankfurt Main International (FRA). At the airport look for "long distance trains". There you can buy a ticket from the machine to Heidelberg Hauptbahnhof (main station), around EUR 25. It usually takes less than an hour, with a change in Mannheim to a regional train. https://www.bahn.de . If you arrive on Sunday you can take a bus from the station to the Old Town or where your hotel is. Heidelberg is pretty small, look for directions on Google Maps. If you arrive on Monday see below on how to get to DKFZ directly.
- Monday at German Cancer Research Center - DKFZ
- Enter through the main lobby ( just north of https://goo.gl/maps/e3ZbcsM5KC82, you can't miss it, it's the tallest building on campus with a big "dkfz." on top). The meeting room is on the 8th floor (H824, "Glaskasten", "glass box"). We will leave some instructions how to get there at the reception. The meeting time in the lobby will be 8:45am for those who wish to be at the meeting room by 9am. Official activities will start at noon with lunch.
- To get to DKFZ in the morning you can use the Google Maps link above, public transport information is available there. For people staying in the Old Town, near Bismarckplatz or coming from the station it will be most likely Bus #32, exit at stop "Chirurgische Klinik", which is the second one after crossing the Neckar river. More detailed timetables at the local transportation services VRN. If you are up early there is also a nice walk along the river.
- Tuesday there is no organized Project Week activity due to IPCAI @ CARS
- Wednesday-Saturday at the Congress Hall of CARS.
- REGISTRATION: Please register for the CARS conference at http://www.cars-int.org/cars_2016/registration.html
- Registration Fee: Euro 650 (after April 26, 2016)
- Hotel: After registration, you can book hotels using the CARS organization at http://germany.nethotels.com/info/heidelberg/events/cars/default_en.htm or on your own. Please remember that Project Week starts on Monday June 20th, even though the formal CARS/IPCAI program starts a day later, so you will need to pay attention while booking the hotel room.

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 researchers from around the world and is led by Tina Kapur, PhD. 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.
An introduction and summary of all previous Project Events is available here.
This project week is an event endorsed by the MICCAI society.
The 23rd Project Week is being held in conjunction with the 30th International Conference on Computer Assisted Radiology and Surgery (CARS).
