International Initiatives

The MIMESIS team has collaboration with the following international partners:

  • Team Legato, University of Luxembourg: since last year we have active collaborations with Prof. Stéphane Bordas on real-time soft tissue cutting simulation. This has already led to a journal article [19] and the co-supervision of a post-doctoral fellow ;

  • Humanoid and Intelligence Systems Lab, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology: we started a collaboration with Stefanie Speidel and Stefan Suwelack on the topics of real-time soft tissue modeling and laparoscopic augmented reality.

  • SINTEF, Norway: we are currently collaborating with SINTEF in the context of the European project RASimAs, and also on other aspects, such as the creation of anatomically correct and accurate datasets from patient-specific data. We are also discussing future collaborations in the context of hepatic surgery simulation and augmented reality (we have jointly written a H2020 proposal on this topic).

  • Faculty of Informatics, Masaryk University, Czech Republic: We began collaborations with Professor Ludek Matyska on biomedical simulations. The PhD thesis of Lukas Rucka on the Validation and verification of soft tissue models; takes place in this context.
