DBSMC 2012
MICCAI 2012 Workshop on Deep Brain Stimulation Methodological Challenges
1 Oct 2012 Nice (France)


The workshop will be held on October 1st PM at Room Gallieni 2, on the second floor of Acropolis.

See MICCAI 2012 main website for full workshops and tutorials program and information, or download the map of our workshop here.

AV and room equipment

The standard equipment is comprised of a speaker podium and a video-projector with a VGA cable, and a power strip. 

Speakers are assumed to bring their own laptop and the necessary adaptors to plug it to the projector. For speakers coming with a USB key, organizers can provide a Macbook with PowerPoint and PDF reader, and the appropriate video adapter. For other needs, please bring your own laptop.

Wireless network will be available in the room. 


MICCAI 2012 workshop on DBS methodological challenges aims at establishing a forum for discussing advanced methods for preoperative planning, intra-operative placement, and post-operative programming of surgical Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS).

During the past decade, this neurosurgical technique has grown in importance for the treatment of movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease. However, planning and performing such interventions still remain difficult, either for defining accurately the location of the anatomical structure to stimulate, determining an optimal position for the electrode, dealing with brain shift, or determining the optimum stimulator settings.

This workshop aims at gathering researchers and clinicians in various fields such as medical image computing, computer graphics, computational modeling, computer-aided surgical planning, and interventional imaging to discuss the recent advances and the challenges to address to improve DBS interventions. It is expected to be a forum of discussion and exchanges between young and experimented scientists and clinicians.
