Recognizing the surge in Surgical Data Science research and the need for effective clinical translation, the SDS summer school aims to promote research and innovation of clinical value by educating clinicians and computer scientists on respective contexts, needs, tools and methodologies.

This first school organized by the Institute of Image-Guided Surgery, IHU-Strasbourg, and the University of Strasbourg will be focusing on endoscopic video analysis. Leading clinical and computers science experts from top institutions will cover subjects related to the clinical use of endoscopy and endoscopic video analysis, spanning from endoscopic instruments and data annotations all the way to advanced deep learning algorithms and the design of clinical translation studies.

Short online lectures on fundamentals of endoscopy and computer science will be freely accessible starting from 15th of March 2022 at: Upon completing these fundamentals, prospective participants can apply to the onsite summer school consisting of a series of lectures, hands-on labs, and group projects. Twenty (20) selected computer scientists and clinicians will have the opportunity join us at Institute of Image-Guided Surgery, IHU-Strasbourg, from 18th – 22nd July 2022 to work in a truly multidisciplinary environment with unique clinical and computer science resources to come up with novel ideas and data science solutions of clinical value.

We invite early-career computer science and clinical researchers who are interested in diving into the exciting world of Surgical Data Science to visit, review the program and learn more about the registration.

Applications close on 25th April 2022. Places are limited so early application is advised.
Best wishes,

The Surgical Data Science Summer School organizing committee Pietro Mascagni, Alexandros Karargyris, Vinkle Srivastav, Silvana Perretta, Nicolas Padoy.
