This course covers in depth how CMake works and how to efficiently write CMake scripts for small to larger projects. The second part of the course covers unit testing with CTest, packaging with CPack and continuous integration with CDash. The training mixes theory and application with a set of tutorials and exercises.

This training will present the common uses of the VTK toolkit using a practical oriented methodology.
The training mixes theory and application with a set of tutorials and exercises.
This course will give an overview of ParaView: how to visualize and process data. The examples are based on use cases from several scientific domains.

The training mixes theory and application with a set of tutorials and exercises.

The Insight Toolkit is a powerful library for image processing and analysis. This course covers the basic architecture of ITK and how to implement algorithms using the framwork.

3DSlicer is a visualization and analysis software dedicated to image data. Its intuitive GUI allows for using advanced image processing algorithm through open source libraries. The design originally focused on research projects directly or indirectly related to imaging. 3DSlicer is now used world-wide, in a variety of projects running from medical imaging to astronomy.

The objectives of this course will interest users of scientific visualization tools, but also developers willing to customize the interface.


Girder is a free and open source web-based data management platform developed by Kitware as part of the Resonant data and analytics ecosystem. Girder is both a standalone application and a platform for building new web services.


MONAI is a freely available, community-supported, PyTorch-based framework for deep learning in healthcare imaging. It provides domain-optimized foundational capabilities for developing healthcare imaging training workflows in a native PyTorch paradigm. Nvidia is one of the main maintainers of this project.
