Gadgetron summer school 2020


We are very excited to announce that the first gadgetron summer school will be held this summer (June 17-19th, 2020) in Bordeaux, France.

This course is aimed at both new and experienced users of Gadgetron, covering basic reconstruction as well as the latest functionalities. The topics covered are intended for researchers in basic science and/or clinical research, and will include:

- Introduction to ISMRM raw data format.
- Converting kspace data from different MRI vendor to ISMRM raw data format.
- Gagdetron installation on our personal laptop.
- Gagdetron installation on MRI (Siemens and GE).
- Introducting to the Gadgetron Framework.
- Discovery of cartesian, radial, spiral, multiband reconstructions.
- Python or Matlab interaction inside the Gadgetron.
- In-line reconstruction using BART or SigPy inside the Gadgetron.
- 2 pratical coding session.
- You need to go faster: C++ and OpenMP programming in the Gadgetron.
- How to debug and optimize the Gadgetron ?
- You have a lot of CPU: distributed reconstruction on a local cloud.
- In-line reconstrution on a remote cloud.
- 2 scanner sessions on 1.5T clinical MRI ( ~2h each).
- Convolution Network inside the Gadgetron.

The precise program will be annonced here in the next months and will cover all these topics in the the first two days (17th-18th).  The list of speakers is already available here. The third day (19th) should include in the morning scientific sessions where speakers and participants can present their works. In the afternoon, another coding session should be organized where participants can bring their own dataset, and  speakers will help them to use the Gadgetron.   

Important dates

1st of December 2019                            pre-registration opening,
20th of Febrary  2019                             pre-registration closing
XXth of Mars 2019                                 participants selection (if necessary) ending, poster submission opening (to be annonced)
XXth of Mars 2019                                      online registration and payment closing  (to be annonced)
June 17-19 2019                                        spring school

After completing this Gadgetron course, participants should be able to process, reconstruct, and visualize their own MRI data sets using the Gadgetron.


Registration includes all sessions, coffee/tea breaks and lunch for each day. Accommodation is not included. All course materials, including lecture slides, tutorial instructions, and example data sets will be made available after the course (with the exception of some MRI-vendor information that will be shared via your refered clinical scientist). Participants must bring their own laptops, and we will do our best to accommodate them.

The registration page can be found here. It will be open from Tuesday XX February/Mars (CET) (to be announced later), and will close on Sunday XX April, midnight CET, or once the maximum of 40 participants has been reached. A further announcement will be made nearer the time with further details.

The school organised by the LIRYC, CNRS, INSERM and NIH was supported by the XX, the XX, XX and XX
