Kitware is also supporting MICCAI through sponsorships. Kitware is pleased to be a bronze-level sponsor of MICCAI, to acknowledge the major contributions this conference has and continues to make to the field of medical image analysis, scientific visualization, and robotics – three areas of emphasis within Kitware.

Kitware is also proud to again sponsor the MICCAI Young Scientist Publication Impact Award. This annual award recognizes a MICCAI publication from the past five years, made by a young scientist, that has subsequently had a significant impact on the field.
