Event Overview
Welcome message:

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. 

The CARS Congress Organizing Committee invites you to come to Heidelberg in June 2016, for an extraordinary event in which scientific/medical presentations as well as stimulating discussions will foster new visions on the future of medicine. 

At CARS you will have the opportunity to meet scholars and practising experts in the fields of radiology, surgery, clinical medicine, engineering, informatics and healthcare management who have an interest in topics, such as

advanced medical imaging

image- and model-guided interventions

image processing and visualization

intelligent operating room of the future

decision and action support in surgical management

computer aided diagnosis

medical simulation and evaluation, and e-Learning

surgical navigation and robotics

model-guided and personalised medicine

integrated patient care

New PACS applications, including IT-infrastructures adapted for the operating room, related results from the DICOM and IHE working groups, but in particular, new methods and IT-tools for modelling the patient and medical processes are increasingly shaping the scope of CARS. Clinical specialties represented at CARS include:

Computer aided neuro-, ENT-, orthopaedic and spinal surgery,cardiovascular- and thoracic surgery, gastroenterological-, gynaecological- and urological surgery

Imaging and interventional radiology

Computed maxillofacial imaging

Computer assisted radiation therapy

Image guided navigation surgery

Minimally invasive and robotic surgery

Pathology informatics

Please note that the deadline for paper and abstract submissions for CARS 2016 in Heidelberg is January 12, 2016. Recent successful CARS congresses have taken place in Berlin, Paris, Tokyo, San Francisco, London, Chicago, Osaka, Geneva, Pisa, Fukuoka, and Barcelona. We would be delighted to welcome you at CARS 2016, which will take place in Heidelberg, the historic university town of Germany embedding many world renowned scientific and medical institutions.

It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in the CARS 2016 congress and exhibition which will take place in Heidelberg, Germany. The emphasis on clinical-oriented sessions, hands-on-workshops and vendor symposia for radiologists, surgeons and engineers makes CARS a unique place to exhibit and network. In addition to the exhibition itself, there are several opportunities to support key parts of the congress program and the possibility to participate in industry focused activities aligned to selected main sessions.

For CARS 2016 in Heidelberg, six major organizations have decided to hold their annual conferences again integrated into one large international event and hence present a unique opportunity for your company to interact with world-renowned professionals at the leading edge of research and development in computer assisted radiology and surgery:

CAR - 30th International Congress and Exhibition on Computer Assisted Radiology

Chairman: Osman M. Ratib, MD, PhD (CH), Co-chair: Kiyonari Inamura, PhD (J)

ISCAS - 20th Annual Conference of the International Society for Computer Aided Surgery

President: Pierre Jannin, PhD (F)

CAD - 18th International Workshop on Computer-Aided Diagnosis

Chairman: Hiro Yoshida, PhD (USA)

CMI - 22nd Computed Maxillofacial Imaging Congress

Chairman: Christos Angelopoulos, PhD (USA), Co-chair: Yoshihiko Hayakawa, PhD (J)

18th IFCARS / SPIE / ISCAS Joint Workshop on Surgical PACS
