Live Demonstrations Workshop
20 February 2024 • 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM PST | Pacific A 
Chairs: Karen Drukker, The Univ. of Chicago Medicine (United States); Lubomir M. Hadjiiski, Michigan Medicine (United States); Horst Karl Hahn, Fraunhofer-Institut für Digitale Medizin MEVIS (Germany)


Discover, showcase, and collaborate at the Live Demonstration Workshop. We invite you to be a part of an exciting event that promises inspiration, collaboration, and knowledge sharing.

About the workshop
This workshop provides a platform for innovators like you to showcase your creations. The primary objectives are to inspire research, offer valuable feedback to participants, foster new collaborations, and facilitate learning in the realm of medical imaging.

Who can participate
The Live Demonstration Workshop welcomes contributions from all conferences within the SPIE Medical Imaging Symposium. We extend our invitation to participants from the CAD, Digital Pathology, Image Processing, Imaging Informatics, Image Perception, Image-Guided Procedures, Modeling, Physics, and Robotic Interventions conferences. While having an accepted SPIE Medical Imaging paper is not mandatory for participation, registration for the SPIE Medical Imaging Symposium is required. We encourage authors of SPIE Medical Imaging papers to submit complementary demonstrations related to their presentations.

What to expect
Expect a dynamic showcase of interactive demonstrations closely aligned with the themes of SPIE Medical Imaging. This workshop will feature live system demonstrations and software presentations. These demonstrations will highlight the implementation, operation, and utility of both emerging and well-established research.

Recognition and awards
The session will include a certificate of merit award and a $300 first prize and $150 runner-up prize, sponsored by Siemens Healthineers. We invite all workshop attendees to cast their votes for their top three favorite demonstrations, with the ultimate winner selected by a panel of designated judges from the top scorers.
