The national center of competence in statistical modeling is a consortium of Swiss universities, which are at the forefront of research in shape modeling.

The national center of competence in statistical shape modeling (NCSSM) is a network of Swiss University Institutes, which are doing active research on Statistical Shape Modeling or use Statistical Shape models as part of their research activities. The network has originally been established during the NCCR Co-Me. The NCSSM is a continuation of this network, and is formally established as part of the SiCAS foundation.


Together with our partner institutes our research covers all aspects of medical image analysis. (TODO replace with image)
