On September 13-15, ICCAS invited to the 17th Annual Conference of the Society for Computer and Robotic Assisted Surgery (CURAC) at the Leipzig University Medical Campus. According to the motto “Connected into the Future” about 100 experts from the fields of medical computer science, engineering and medicine jointly discussed possibilities and challenges on computer- and robot-controlled assistances in operating rooms. The keynote speakers Prof. Guang-Zhong Yang (director of the Hamlyn Center for Robotic Surgery, London) and Prof. Jens J. Rassweiler (director of the Urology-Dept., SLK Clinics Heilbronn) held impressive lectures on worldwide developments of medical robot applications. Within the “Get Together” ICCAS presented its research world, especially the fully networked operating room. The Best Paper Award ceremony took place in the oldtimer location DaCapo on the social evening. The first prize went to Simon Strzeletz and his team from the Laboratory for Computer-Assisted Medicine at Offenburg University of Applied Sciences.
