Aims and Scope

The evolution and the improvement of technological devices (scanners, medical instruments, computer power, etc.) have encouraged further developments for the understanding of the human body functionalities. In the last years, research in medicine has received a very high push. In particular, the anatomical and physiological modeling of human structures has provided new opportunities for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases.

This International 3DAH summer school wishes to establish a scientific forum for exchanging and disseminating novel ideas from a wide range of disciplines (computer graphics, biomechanics, knowledge representation, etc.) associated with medical imaging, medical simulation, computer assisted surgery and 3D semantics. This summer school invites Postdocs/PhD candidates/MS students to submit extended abstracts presenting a problem statement and a methodological approach with an expected contribution to the topics of the 3D Physiological Human.

This summer school provides the opportunity to Postdocs/PhD candidates/MS students to situate themselves within their academic field and to benefit from the expertise of keynote lectures, while enjoying the wonders of Crete.


Suggested topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • 3D anatomical and physiological modeling

  • Medical Image Analysis

  • Graphics hardware for medical computing

  • Interactive medical visualization

  • Data fusion, content-based 3D retrieval and classification

  • Computational anatomical atlases

  • Surgical simulations

  • Biomedical motion analysis and modeling

Submission Details

LaTeX2e macro package

The LaTeX2e macro package can be downloaded easily from Springer’s server. Instructions and a list of available documentation are outlined in the README file that comes with the package. Click on the link to download the packed zip archive. For BibTeX users, a style file is included in the package. Papers should be formatted in double column format.

Word Template

If you are not familiar with LaTeX, please use the Word template to prepare your article. The Word template does not follow the same formatting as the LaTeX template or final manuscripts. It is for example formatted in single column format. As a rough guideline a double column LaTeX page contains approximately 850 words or 4500 characters (or less if there are figures or tables included). Click on the link below to download file.

Citations in text are numbered in brackets: in [3], the authors...

For Latex users, use bibtex with the natbib package by putting \usepackage[numbers]{natbib} in the preamble and by citing your references with \citep{bibkey}.

Camera ready of extended abstracts

You are encouraged to provide a camera ready version of your extended abstract which will be distributed to the attendance and the panel of experts. Please take care on the grammar and typo errors. Where possible, we strongly recommend that you use the provided LaTeX template to help you with the layout of both text and bibliography. If you cannot do that, please use a form as close to the this pdf output as possible. We remind you to respect the 2 pages double-columns limit. 

Submit the source files used to generate your camera-ready (latex files or word file in case you plan to copy the style of the double column template)
a generated pdf without page number in case you are not providing latex sources.
