The organisers of the annual CARS congress wish to invite you to attend next year's edition of their meeting, as well as that of their partner societies. Following the long-term successful cooperation with the ISCAS, EuroPACS, CAR, CAD and CMI societies, in 2012 these scientific communities will jointly hold their annual meetings for the first time in Italy, with the 26th CARS Congress in Pisa. The Congress will also be par t of the Bioengineering Week, which will start in Rome on June 24 and move to Pisa for joining the CARS.
The organisers note that at CARS you will have the opportunity to meet scholars and experts in the fields of radiology, surgery, engineering, informatics and/or healthcare management who have an interest in topics, such as
- Image- and model-guided interventions
- Advanced medical imaging
- Computer aided diagnosis
- Medical simulation and eLearning
- Surgical navigation and robotics
- Model-guided medicine, and
- Personalised medicine
New PACS applications, including IT-infrastructures adapted for the operating room as well as related results from the DICOM and IHE working groups are also within the scope of CARS. The deadline for paper and abstract submissions for CARS 2012 in Pisa is January 10, 2012.
