Event Overview
Welcome message:

There is no other meeting that brings together the computer assisted radiology, computer aided surgery, computer-aided diagnosis, computerized maxillofacial imaging, PACS and imaging informatics experts as CARS has done. The CARS conference has been the springboard for the emergence of national societies and ISCAS, the International Society of Computer Aided Surgery. 

Following the long term successful cooperation in many parts of the world, in 2013 the prestigious scientific/medical communities of ISCAS, EuroPACS, CAR, CAD and CMI will jointly hold their annual meetings as part of the 27th CARS Congress in Heidelberg, Germany.

Sponsors Exhibitors
General Info

It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in the CARS 2013 congress and exhibition which will take place at the Heidelberg Convention Center. 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 2013 in Heidelberg, seven 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 - 27th International Congress and Exhibition on Computer Assisted Radiology
    Chairmen: Stanley Baum, MD (USA), Hans-Peter Meinzer, PhD (D)
  • EuroPACS - 31st International EuroPACS Meeting
    President: Emanuele Neri, MD (I)
  • ISCAS - 17th Annual Conference of the International Society for Computer Aided Surgery
    President: Makoto Hashizume, MD (J)
  • CAD - 15th International Workshop on Computer-Aided Diagnosis
    Chairman: Kunio Doi, PhD (USA), Co-Chair: Ulrich Bick, MD (D)
  • CMI - 19th Computed Maxillofacial Imaging Congress 
    Chairman: Allan G. Farman, PhD, DSc (USA)
  • 14th IFCARS / SPIE / EuroPACS / ISCAS Joint Workshop on Surgical PACS and the Digital Operating Room
    Chairmen: Osman M. Ratib, MD, PhD (CH), Heinz U. Lemke, PhD (D)
  • 5th EPMA / IFCARS Workshop on Personalized Medicine and ICT
    Chairs: O. Golubnitschaja, MD (D), H.U. Lemke, PhD (D)

By focusing attention on radiology, surgery, engineering and informatics, these conferences complement one another to ascertain that all aspects of digital medical imaging, computer assisted diagnosis and therapy, surgical robotics and instrumentation, PACS / RIS and telemedicine are covered with internationally renowned speakers and attendees from over 40 countries.

On behalf of these organizations, I should like to invite you to participate in the CARS 2013 Exhibition, the Congress and the scientific/medical sessions. The exhibition takes place on June 27 - 28, 2013 at the Convention Center in Heidelberg, which offers a very attractive position for the exhibition area. Heidelberg, as one of the leading cities for conventions on healthcare, is an ideal venue to attract participants from all over the world and we expect approximately 1000 attendees. We recommend an early booking as the exhibition space is limited and places are assigned on a first-come first-served basis.

 

Yours sincerely,

Heinz U. Lemke, PhD
