CARS International Brings Congress, Exhibition to Spain

September 20, 2007 - The 22nd annual Computer Assisted Radiology and Surgery (CARS) International Congress and Exhibition takes place June 25-28, 2008 in Barcelona.

As a result of widespread clinical acceptance of computer assisted methods and tools, more than half of the symposium organizing and program committees for CARS are radiologists or surgeons, the remainder being computer scientists and engineers.

Various subspecialties in surgery are bringing image-guided interventions into clinical practice. Advances in medical imaging (soon to include molecular imaging), image processing and display, surgical simulation, surgical navigation and robotics as well as surgery adapted PACS infrastructures are the driving forces for this development.

The international participation in CARS is highly significant, since the approximately 1000-1400 participants of CARS meetings typically come from over 45 countries and the members of the program committee are divided approximately equally between Europe, the United States and Asia. The program committee has the difficult task of selecting approximately 150 paper and 100 poster presentations from between 400 to 500 abstracts submitted annually.

The deadline for submission of abstracts and/or papers is January 10, 2008 and information requests may be directed to:
