Themes and topics

CereVis is looking for original manuscript contributions, addressing the following subjects:

  • Neuro-imaging data visualization
  • Interaction techniques with brain imaging data
  • Novel graphical data rendering techniques
  • Image processing methods for multi-modal data fusion and enhancement for improved data visualization in neurosurgical planning and guidance, as well as diagnosis
  • Open-source software & web platforms for brain data visualization/interaction
  • Augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) for neurosurgery, diagnosis and training
  • Novel experimental strategy and metrics to assess visualization and interaction techniques
  • Cognitive and psychological studies on perception of brain imaging data in surgery and diagnosis

We encourage novel submissions that employ multi-modal imaging data, including MRI, PET, CT, EEG, MEG, videos, and ultrasound, etc. in the applications of

  • Medical diagnosis and treatment planning
  • Surgical interventions
  • Medical procedure training
  • Education of neuroscience and neurological pathologies

To encourage participants from non-medical domains (who don’t have clinical data available) we are providing real multi-modal clinical data upon request.

Submission Instruction (new guideline!)

Submissions to CereVis will be completed using Microsoft’s Conference Management Toolkit (CMT) system. The authors can use the following link to proceed:

This year’s workshop proceedings will be published in a Special Issue in the IET’s HealthCare Technology Letters Journal (IET HTL). All papers accepted for presentation at AE-CAI-CereVis joint workshop 2018 will be published online as E-first publications shortly after acceptance. If time allows, USB formatted or printed copies of the Special Issue will be available at the workshop.

All papers will be formatted according to the IET HTL double-column format templates. The Author Guide, as well as both Microsoft Word and LaTeX templates, can be accessed and downloaded here.

Please note that we enforce an 8-10 column (4-5 page) initial submission for peer review and a 10-12 column (5-6 page) final submission after revision and response to reviewer’s comments for final typesetting and publication.

In addition, since the CereVis workshop has adhered to the double-blinded peer review process, we ask that you please follow the well-known MICCAI anonymity guidelines when preparing your initial submission in the IET HTL format.

Note: Each IET HTL column is more or less equivalent to a Springer LNCS page, so the overall length of the papers does not change from previous years and workshop submissions.
