Scholarships are often available for students wishing to attend.

Upcoming Summer Schools

June 18 – 23, 2023

3rd IEEE EMBS International Summer School on Computer Modeling in Medicine

Computer models play a significant role in the design and evaluation of medical devices and technologies, and are increasingly being used to enable personalized planning and delivery of device-based interventions. Prominent experts from academia and industry will provide an in depth view of fundamental concepts and current trends in model-based medical device design. Hands-on modeling tutorials with simulation software will be presented to demonstrate application of concepts covered in lectures.

This summer school is primarily geared towards graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and individuals from the medical device/imaging industry, with an interest in developing and applying computational models for medical device design, analysis, and evaluation.
