Instructors: Prof. Dr. Nassir NavabDr. Shahrooz Faghih Roohi,  Ashkan Khakzar, Azade Farshad, Yousef Yeganeh

Time: TBA



  • It is highly recommended to attend the seminar in person. However, for those who cannot attend in person, the online link via Zoom will be provided (the meeting link will be shared with participants via email and on the moodle).
  • The presentation and blogpost guidelines are available here: Guide_DLMA WS2022_23.pdf


  • Deep Learning is growing tremendously in Computer Vision and Medical Imaging as well. Highly impacted journals in the medical imaging community, i.e. IEEE Transaction on Medical Imaging, published recently their special edition on Deep Learning [1]. The Seminar will propose a list of recent scientific articles related to the main current research topics in deep learning for Medical Applications together with some interesting papers from other communities (CVPR, NeurIPS, ICCV, ICLR, ICML, ...).

Course Structure

In this Master Seminar (Hauptseminar), students select one scientific topic from the list provided by course organizers. The students should read the proposed sample papers by the tutors, find the topic-related articles, summarize and compare them in their presentation and blogpost:

  • Presentation: The selected paper is presented to the other participants (Maximum 25 minutes presentation, 10 minutes questions). You can use the CAMP templates for PowerPoint TUM-Template.pptx.
  • Blog Post: A blog post of 2000-2500 words, excluding references should be submitted before the deadline. The blog post must include all references used and must be written completely in your own words. Copy and paste will not be tolerated
  • Attendance: Participants have to participate actively in all seminar sessions. Each presentation is followed by a discussion and everyone is encouraged to participate actively.

Submission Deadline: You have to submit the first draft of the blog post one week before your presentation session. However, you would have time to modify it until the last session. You should also submit the presentation one day right after your presentation session.
