Welcome to the web page for the 24th Project Week!

The 24th NA-MIC Project Week open source hackathon is being held during the week of January 9-13, 2017 at MIT. Please go through this page for information, and if you have questions, please contact Tina Kapur, PhD.


  • Dates: January 9-13, 2017.
  • Location: MIT CSAIL, Cambridge, MA. (Rooms: Kiva, R&D)
  • REGISTRATION: Register here. Registration Fee: $330.
  • Hotel: Similar to previous years, no rooms have been blocked in a particular hotel.


The National Alliance for Medical Image Computing (NAMIC), was founded in 2005 and 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, enhancements to the underlying building blocks 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 open source hackathon event called Project Week.

Project Week is a semi-annual open source hackathon which draws 60-120 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.

A summary of all previous Project Events is available here.

This project week is an event endorsed by the MICCAI society.
