When the ICCAS – Summerschool will open its doors for one week on 22nd September 2014, participants can expect a richly filled program which has the developments and challenges in the field of information technology for the digital operating room as subject matter.
In the premises of the new Augusteum and the Bibliotheca Albertina, experienced scientists from medicine, engineering and computer science will share their experiences in the fields of medical image processing, computer vision and IT-technologies. They will also provide advisory support to the participants. Furthermore, hospital operators speak about the possibilities of implementing new IT-infrastructures in their institutions. During a practical session participants will be introduced into the human physiology and anatomy. An operating room visit will show the current state of the art OR-technologies and workflows in practice. Latest developments can finally be tested on prototypes and simulators in the ICCAS Concept-OR.
Especially young researchers and Ph.D. students should feel concerned who want to face the new requirements on personalized medicine and who want to receive firsthand knowledge from experts. But all other interested persons who are looking for a direct exchange within the scientific community of computer-assisted surgery are very welcome.
The number of participants is limited. Registrations can be submitted until 31st August 2014.
The ICCAS is looking forward to informative days in Leipzig where also the mutual acquaintance should not be neglected.
