Theme of CARS 2010: “Outreach...”

The selected theme for 25th anniversary of CARS meeting is “Outreach”. A theme that highlights the expansion and growth of the scope of this meting held yearly since 1985. While it has expanded from the fundamental concepts of development of imaging technology and image management systems toward clinical applications in surgery and images based medical interventions, it continues to grow and expand in the promotion of technical discoveries and scientific and medical innovations. This year’s meeting will bring more than ever a wealth of new concepts and innovations in medical and clinical applications in domains that were not foreseen 25 years ago when the first CARS meeting was held in Berlin. This milestone event is perceived as a turning point of an ever expanding field that tries to reach beyond its original scope and aim for new frontiers, and maybe “boldly go where no man has gone before.” (*)

(*) a very famous quote from original Star Trek television series of the late seventies!
