Instructors: Prof. Dr. Nassir NavabDr. Shahrooz Faghih Roohi,  Ashkan Khakzar, Azade Farshad, Roger Soberanis

Time: TBA



  • The preliminary meeting slides can be found here: DLMASws21-22.pdf
  • The preliminary meeting is scheduled for July 7th, 16:30 (Zoom link is visible on TUMonline).
  • Due to the current pandemic, the seminar happens virtually via Zoom (the meeting link will be shared with participants via email).


  • 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 article from the list provided by course organizers. The students read the paper, and must accomplish the following:

  • Presentation: The selected paper is presented to the other participants (20 minutes presentation 10 minutes questions). You can use the CAMP templates for PowerPoint, or Latex: CAMP-latex-template.
  • Blog Post: A blog post of 1000-1200 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 actively participate.

Submission Deadline: You have to submit the blog post one week before your presentation session! You should also submit the presentation one day right after your presentation session.

You may look at the blog posts and presentations from the previous semester (using the tree in the upper left corner).

Libraries (online and offline):

Some further hints for working with references:

  • JabRef is a Java program for comfortable working with Bibtex literature databases. Handy feature: if you know the PubMed ID for an article, JabRef can import data from there (via "Web Search/Medline").
  • Mendeley is a cross-platform program for organising your references.

If you find useful resources that are not already listed here, please tell us, so we can add them for others. Thanks.
