3DAH Meeting

The Center for Research, Development and Advanced Studies in Sardinia (CRS4), located in the Sardegna Ricerche Scientific Park in Pula (Cagliari, Italy) will host the first European Summer School of the EU Project 3D Anatomical Human (3DAH). The project is a Marie Curie Research Training Network Research Training Network aimed at developing new technologies and knowledge around virtual representations of human body for interactive medical applications. Partners of the network are among the most active research groups in different fields related with these theme such as medical data acquisition, segmentation, modelling, simulation and visualization.
The school is therefore a big opportunity for the student involved in the project and for external students interested in these topics to acquire and exchange information about all the different aspects of human body simulation. The school is open to the member of the consortium and also to a restricted number of external students (approximately 20) that will be selected on the basis of their career.

Tuition fees and other costs

No participation fees will be charged to the external participants. Travel costs and costs of accommodation and meals are at the charge of the external participants.
