An EPSRC Medical Image Analysis Network Event


The 1st MedIAN CodeFest aims to bring together young researchers with an Engineering and Computer Science background with leading scientists from Biomedical and Clinical disciplines to collaborate intensively over two days on medical image analysis challenges.

The CodeFest is a creative, social, and educational event with strong emphasis on multidisciplinary exchange with the ambition to generate new and exciting scientific insights.


Teams can use Slack to share ideas and coordinate tasks while working on one of two main challenges:

  AI for Brain Scans: Exploring deep learning for analysing medical images of the brain.

  AnatomyVR: Virtual reality for 3D interactive visualisation of human anatomy.


The CodeFest is held on 21st and 22nd of September 2017 at Imperial College London.
