The CARS congress is the yearly event for a renowned international community of scientists, engineers and physicians to present and discuss the key innovations that shape modern medicine on a worldwide basis.

Founded in 1985, CARS has played a leading role in medical and imaging informatics for more than 30 years by focusing on research and development on novel algorithms and systems and their applications in radiology and surgery. Its growth and impact is due to CARS’s close collaboration with the ISCAS, CAR, CAD and CMI organizations.

Following the long term successful cooperation, in many parts of the world, in 2016 these prestigious scientific communities will jointly hold their annual meetings as part of the 30th CARS Congress in Heidelberg, Germany.
