April 27-28, 2015 in Heidelberg, Germany


We are happy to announce the first MITK Users Meeting in Heidelberg!

Take the opportunity to communicate directly with other users in the MITK community and the developers of MITK.

We kindly invite you to attend this workshop-style event and encourage you to contribute a talk, a poster, or a demonstration. Take the chance to spread the word about your MITK-based projects and get valuable feedback from the community.

The workshop will provide both attractive talks as well as plenty of time for open discussions and individual meetings. On Monday evening we will enjoy Heidelberg starting with Professor Meinzer's legendary tour of the Old Town.

Why should I attend?

  • Get first-hand information about current developments and the MITK roadmap
  • Help shape the future of MITK
    • Discuss possible new features and help us determine priorities
    • Give input in regards to new capabilities
    • Learn more about how to contribute to MITK
  • Attend the workshops and tutorials and get input on how to maximize your profit from using MITK
  • Present your MITK-based projects
  • Enjoy spending time with other users and the developers of MITK and create new opportunities for cooperation

How can I contribute?

  • Present your MITK-based work and projects: submit a short abstract and indicate whether you would like to present a talk, a poster, or a software demonstration. If you need special hardware for your demonstration, e.g., a tracking device, please let us know in advance
  • Help us shape the discussions: let us know about topics you would like to discuss, e.g., future directions, the contribution process, or specific technical aspects. These could be both plenary discussions or breakout sessions
