Scientific summary

Pierre Jannin is a senior INSERM researcher at the Medical School of the University of Rennes (France). He was awarded the PhD degree from the University of Rennes in 1988 on multimodal 3D imaging in neurosurgery and the “Habilitation” (HDR) from the University of Rennes in 2005 on information and knowledge assisted neurosurgery. He has about 20 years experience in designing and developing image guided surgery systems for neurosurgery. His research topics include image-guided surgery, multimodal imaging data fusion, augmented reality, modeling of surgical procedures, and validation in medical image processing. The main clinical application areas concern functional neurosurgery and surgery of low-grade tumors in central areas. He authored or co authored more than 20 peer-reviewed international journal papers and more than 35 international conferences long papers. He is the General Secretary of the International Society of Computer Aided Surgery (ISCAS). He is Deputy Editor for the International Journal of Computer Assisted Radiology and Surgery. He is acted as associate editor and reviewer for several journals (e.g., IEEE TMI, MedIA, Neuroimage, Yearbook of Medical Informatics). He is member of the CARS Organizing Committee and of the SPIE Program Committee.
