Annual Workshop II

Purpose of Annual Workshop II will be training for conference participation targeted at RAINBOW ESRs only. The workshop will offer RAINBOW ESRs the opportunity to meet keynotes and other RAINBOW ESR presenters apart from presenting themselves, receiving review and reviewing two fellow ESRs.

Cfp and review process

A Call for Papers targeted at RAINBOW ESRs is the central point of the workshop with a deadline on 13 December 2019 and a review process in which reviewers know who wrote the paper, and authors know who wrote the review. Each ESR is given two papers to review and on top of that, supervisors are also assigned so that ESRs get feedback from senior researchers too. ESRs are asked to address the reviews in a rebuttal letter and finalize their papers. Deadline for review and final version is 14 February and 2 March 2020 respectively.  All papers will be accepted.

Virtual presentation and feedback

Upon the COVID-19 outbreak, the conference was given a virtual format: ESRs were asked to record their presentations on video and ESRs and supervisors were asked to give feedback on assigned presentations structured in a way mimicing the interaction the ESRs can expect when presenting their work at a conference. ESRs were asked to set up videoconferences with their reviewers (both paper and presentation) for discussion of feedback and intended improvements of the paper and presentation.

Call for Papers

NB CfP internal to RAINBOW ESRs only

We are pleased to announce the 1st Conference on Rapid Biomechanics Simulation for Personalized Clinical Design, RAINBOW 2020. The conference is hosted by the University of Copenhagen. Location details TBA.

RAINBOW 2020 is a friendly environment of peers, with the sole purpose of giving you a soft introduction to the life of a published scientific author. Submit your paper and receive in return only constructive criticism and praise. There will be no worry of rejection as RAINBOW 2020 has a 100% acceptance rate, all you risk is becoming a better scientific writer.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Mechanical modelling and simulation
  • Physical simulation
  • Large deformation simulation
  • Contact mechanics
  • Finite element models
  • Clinical testing/usage/evaluation
  • Data acquisition
  • Biomarkers
  • Validation methods
  • Image processing/registration/segmentation/deformation techniques
  • Statistics
  • Statistical shape models
  • Gait analysis
  • Inverse methods/problems
  • Model generation
  • Adaptive mesh generation
  • Radiology
  • Data-driven models
  • Surgical planning
  • Interaction techniques
  • Model order reduction
  • Machine learning

A "Best Paper Award" will be given to the author(s) of a full paper presented at the conference, selected by the Organizing Committee.

Formal requirements

  • All papers most follow the guideline outlined in the overleaf project
  • Please make sure to copy the project before changing anything in the project folder (and work in your own project folder)
  • If the author does not wish to use LaTex, please see the sample pdf for how to format your paper
  • All papers must be submitted in pdf. for the review phase with numbered lines
  • All papers must be submitted along with a graphical abstract, if you are unsure what a graphical abstract is, please find inspiration at Wikipedia's description of graphical abstract or Elsevier's graphical abstract guidelines
  • Papers are to be written by a single author
  • Additional video material is required
  • There is a hard paper upper limit of 8 pages, this includes images, tables, bibliography, appendices, etc.
  • All submitted papers are treated as confidential material, and will only be made available within the RAINBOW network
  • A paper submitted to RAINBOW 2020 will not count as a publication, so authors are free to submit the material elsewhere afterwards
