Agenda


9am-10am: OpenIGTLink Updates and Next Steps

  • OpenIGTLink Updates
    • Summary from Junichi's presentation on Tuesday
  • Discussion on OpenIGTLink Protocol version 2
    • Finalize version 2 protocol

10a-12pm: Tutorial and hands-on session

  • Basic: OpenIGTLink tutorial using 3D Slicer and OpenIGTLink
  • Advanced: Matlab OpenIGTLink
  • 5-10 minutes from each of the vendors on how they can use it?
  • Hands-on session
    • Planning to interface aurora tracker with Slicer using OpenIGTLink (Tamas)
    • Hands-on help in WPI system up and running (Greg will confirm)

1-2pm: Demos of working OpenIGTLink based systems

  • IGSTK-OpenIGTLink by Haiying Liu
  • BrainLAB-3D Slicer Integration

2-3pm: OpenIGTLink Library, 3D Slicer and other tools

  • Transport Layer
  • Matlab OpenIGTLink interface
    • Currently it supports IMAGE and TRANSFORM
    • Potential applications?
      • Prototyping robot
      • Prototyping IGS system
    • Other language support
      • Java
      • C#
      • Python

3-4pm: Simulator Discussion

  • Currently, only simple simulators are provided as example programs in the OpenIGTLink Library
    • Are they enough?
    • More sophisticated simulator?


Teleconference on May 27 (Thu) 3pm-

Minutes

Suggestions for agenda from TCON:

  • Tracker simulator (Haiying)
  • General session on simulators (maybe there should be a general discussion on this)
  • BrainLab VectorVision-Slicer integration using OpenIGTLink
  • Suggestions for hands-on session
    • hello world type demo application
    • 5-10 minutes from each of the vendors on how they can use it?
    • compare OpenIGTLink with Steathlink protocol
    • hands-on help in WPI system up and running (Greg will confirm)
    • planning to interface aurora tracker with Slicer using OpenIGTLink (Tamas)
    • discussion about the implementation -- message queueing idea/transport layer (Patrick Georgetown, Steve to followup)
