Reminder: Project Week prep meetings start next week (May 18th)

Dear members of the Project Week community,

After the success of the first online project week last December, we are renewing the experience for Project Week 35 (June 28-July 2, 2021). Weekly preparation meetings will start on May 18th (10 am Boston time, EDT) on Zoom. You can join using the following link which will remain the same for all preparation meetings:

Looking forward to see you all!


Simon Drouin and Tina Kapur

Project Week#35 will be held June 28-july 2, 2021 on the internet . Please look here for additional details: Welcome to the web page for the 35th Project Week! | NA-MIC Project Weeks

Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, Project Week 35 will take place online. Given this format, the community will be focusing on demos and dissemination of Slicer based projects, which will make this edition a perfect opportunity to introduce new members to the community.

Preparation : To prepare, we will be holding weekly meetings at 10am on Tuesdays, starting May 18, 2020 and ending on December 8. Please join at this link if you have a project that you would like to present or work on during project week.

Background : The Project Week is a week-long hackathon of hands on activity in which medical image computing researchers create solutions using the open source image computing platform, 3D Slicer, and VTK, ITK, CMake, and CDash libraries as well as OHIF, Cornerstone, dcmjs, vtkjs, itkjs, DICOMweb, Girder and related web technologies. Participants work collaboratively on solutions that lie at the interfaces of the fields of computer science, mechanical engineering, biomedical engineering, and medicine. In contrast to conferences and workshops where the primary focus is to report results, the objective of the ProjectWeek is to provide a venue for creators of medical image computing open-source software creators to collaboratively work.
