Since 2004, we award excellent contributions in the field of medical visualization. The price is named after the internationally renown pioneer in medical visualization, Prof. em. Dr Karl-Heinz Höhne, formerly active at the Universitätsklinikum Hamburg Eppendorf.
Since 2004, the FG VCBM awards every two years the Karl-Heinz Höhne Award in cooperation with Gesellschaft für Informatik and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Computer- und Roboterassistierte Chirurgie eV (CURAC). It distinguishes innovative academic publications with a focus on visual computing methodology and the group's research topic.
The submission may refer to new methods or a skilfull combination and parametrisation of existing methods. We expressively encourage contributions about the validation and evaluation of known methods.
The application deadline closed in May 2021. The three winners - one first, two second places - have been notified by 10 July 2021. The award ceremony will take place on 2/3 September 2021 at the next workshop of the workgroup.
