Medical Augmented Reality Summer School 2024

The mission of Medical Augmented Reality Summer School (MARSS) is to bring together the world's top experts, clinicians, companies, and talented reseachers and students from all round the world, fosting collaboration, and pusing the boundaries of Medical Augmented Reality. MARSS is organized by a consortium of scientists and clinicians from top institutes and hospitals, which are among the leading centers for cutting-edge research in medical augmented reality. Till now, it has been held in Europe every two years; but in the coming summer, MARSS will take place outside Europe for the first time and this time in Suzhou, China, supported by Center for Medical Imaging, Robotics, Analytic Computing and Learning (MIRACLE), Suzhou Institute for Advanced Research, University of Science and Technology of China (China), Laboratories for Computer Aided Medical Procedures (CAMP), Technical University of Munich (Germany), and Institute of Medical Robotics (IMR), Shanghai Jiao Tong University (China).

The MARSS24 will feature a list of events, including keynote speeches from top experts and clinicians, hands-on lectures from experienced researchers, industry demos, workshops, and hackathons, and a lot of fun. For the hackathon, interdisciplinary teams consisting of participants from research, industry, and clinic will be formed to collaboratively develop novel Medical Augmented Reality systems, supported by experienced surgeons and AR experts.

This event is endorsed by the MICCAI society and covered by the MICCAI Code of Conduct.
