MAP Breast Summer School – Call for Participation

Call for Participation ? MAP Breast Summer School

MAP Breast (Multidisciplinary Advances in Personalised Breast Cancer Surgery) focusses on computer-supported methods to solve clinical problems of soft-tissue surgery through image analysis and biophysical or statistical modelling with an emphasis on applications in breast surgery and breast reconstruction. The Summer School objective is to bring together researchers in an early stage of their career with well-known experts in their field. We will cover topics from multiple disciplines, including computer science, mathematics, radiology, and surgery. We strive to make the event an opportunity for interdisciplinary scientific exchange and mutual learning, connecting experts in the field and students of all specialties and experience.

The MAP Breast Summer School will be held on July 13 – July 17 2015 at INESC TEC, Porto, Portugal, providing ample opportunity for recreational activities to accompany the intense learning program.

MAP Breast is a joint Summer School organized by the EU-Projects PICTURE (Patient Information Combined for the Assessment of Specific Surgical Outcomes in Breast Cancer) and VPH-PRISM <> (Personalised Predictive Breast Cancer Therapy Through Integrated Tissue Micro-Structure Modeling).

Participants will have the opportunity to present their research work during the <> Students Presentation Sessions. It will be a great opportunity to discuss their current research works, possibly leading to significant breakthroughs for new developments of their theses.

Further information and registration is available on the Summer School Website:
