Final Conference

25-26th January 2024 – Valencia (Spain)

CLARIFY Final Conference Countdown









The field of digital histopathology has seen incredible growth in recent years. Digital pathology is becoming a relevant tool in healthcare, industrial and research sectors to reduce the saturation of pathology departments and improve the productivity of pathologists by increasing diagnostic accuracy and reducing turnaround times.

CLARIFY project was born in 2019 as an innovative, multinational, multi-sectorial, and multidisciplinary research and training programme to produce 12 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) in artificial intelligence, cloud computing and clinical pathology with the focus on digital pathology to respond to the need for a new generation of researchers able to address the challenges in that field.

Now CLARIFY is about to finish and the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV) organizes the Final Conference: A two-day event in which the main achievements of CLARIFY will be highlighted and have high‐profile researchers in the field as invited speakers.

The aim of the symposium is to provide an event for the research and clinical community that facilitates discussion and lays the foundations for future developments and collaborations. The symposium is open to the research community, registration for the event is free of charge and attendees are invited to contribute with poster presentations.

Welcome to the CLARIFY Final Conference!
