Medvis Award


Background and Call for Participation

Since 2004, the VCBM group awards every two years the Karl-Heinz Höhne Award for Medical Visualization in cooperation with Brainlab, GI and CURAC. We are awarding the price to an innovative work that focuses on visualization and is clearly related to medical questions, e.g. in medical education, diagnostics or therapy. The award is endowed with 1,000 EUR.

Besides the presentation of new methods, contributions dealing with validation and evaluation of methods and solving medical problems through a “clever” combination and parameterization of existing methods are very welcome, too.

Participation and Application

If you are a young scientist, please apply with a diploma or Master's thesis, or with up to two publications (published or to be reviewed) related to Visual Computing in biology or medicine.
