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 last award contest was closed in May 2021. The next tour is scheduled for Spring 2023.
