The Statistical Atlases and Computational Modeling of the Heart (STACOM) workshop has been running annually at MICCAI since 2010. The 12th edition of STACOM workshop was held in conjunction with the MICCAI 2021 in Strasbourg, France. The STACOM workshop is aiming to create a collaborative forum for young/senior researchers (engineers, biophysicists, mathematicians) and clinicians, working on: statistical analysis of cardiac morphology and dynamics, computational modelling of the heart and fluid dynamics, data/models sharing, personalisation of cardiac electro-mechanical models, quantitative image analysis and translational methods into clinical practice.


Congratulations to Claudia Nagel from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany for the best oral award and to Gabriel Bernardino from CREATIS, France for the best poster award.
