Lecture and poster contributions are invited on the topics of CAR, CAS, CAD, CMI, DOR, MCA and CAI.
To secure a balanced evaluation of all submissions, each abstract/paper will be evaluated by three expert members of the internationally renowned medical/scientific CARS 2018 program committee.
Please submit either:
an extended abstract (500–1000 words) or a paper (3000–5000 words) for CARS 2018.
Extended abstracts or full papers including new methods, devices, systems and applications, clinical studies, position papers, and poster topics for presentation at the congress are solicited. Submissions will be peer-reviewed by members of the CARS international program committee.
CARS follows a two-tier system:
To submit an abstract (500-1000 words), please submit your abstract through the Abstract Management System here.
Submitting an extended abstract is a multi-step process. Please ensure that
To submit a paper please submit your manuscript through the Editorial Management System (Springer) here and enter "CARS 2018 Submission" into the author comments. Please refer to the instructions for authors of the International Journal of CARS and read it carefully before preparing your manuscript.
The benefit of submitting a paper rather than an abstract is that after the peer-review process, in addition to a lecture or poster presentation at the congress, the paper may also be considered for inclusion in a regular issue of the International Journal of CARS. If a paper is rejected for publication in IJCARS, but accepted for presentation for the CARS Congress, the authors will be given the opportunity to submit an extended abstract for the CARS Proceedings, Supplement of IJCARS.
Abstracts or papers are solicited for presentation at the congress (i.e. papers as well as abstracts are considered for lectures or posters, both have equal chance of acceptance). Abstracts may also be submitted to be considered for the poster exhibition only. Abstracts for lectures or posters will also be published in the CARS Proceedings.
All submissions will be peer-reviewed and, if accepted, will be given a presentation time of 15 minutes incl. 3 minutes discussion for oral presentations or a space in the poster exhibition.
CARS 2018 abstracts will be evaluated by the program committee and, if accepted, will be published in the CARS Proceedings, Supplement of the International Journal of CARS, which will be made available to all attendees at the congress.
After the peer-review process and if accepted, papers will be published in “online first” by Springer as well as printed in regular issues of the International Journal of CARS.
