The CARS congress is the annual event for a distinguished international community of scientists, engineers and physicians to present and discuss the key innovations that shape modern medicine on a worldwide basis.
Founded in 1983, 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 IFCARS, ISCAS, CAR, CAD, CMI and IPCAI organizations.
Recent successful CARS congresses have taken place in Barcelona, Berlin, Paris, Tokyo, San Francisco, London, Chicago, Osaka, Geneva, Pisa, Fukuoka, and Heidelberg. We would be delighted to welcome you at CARS 2019, which will take place in Rennes, one of the leading cities for medical research and development in France. The CARS 2019 Congress will be held in a very special historic setting, at the Le Couvent des Jacobins Convention Center.
Following the long term successful cooperation with CARS congresses in many parts of the world, in 2019 these prestigious scientific communities will jointly hold their annual meetings as part of the 33rd CARS Congress in Rennes, France.
At the CARS congress 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
New IT-systems adapted to clinical environments, such as the operating room, but in particular, new methods and IT-tools for modelling the patient and medical processes as well as artificial intelligence (AI) systems are increasingly shaping the scope of CARS. Clinical specialties represented at CARS include:
In close cooperation with institutions which presented clinical results of novel IT methods and tools in IJCARS, special emphasis will be given to innovative clinical investigations which show significant advances in clinical workflows and patient outcomes.
Please note that the deadline for paper and abstract submissions for CARS 2019 in Rennes is January 10, 2019. In addition to the abstract/paper submission, you are invited to submit short and informal proposals on tutorials, workshops and other special events which potentially can enhance the mission of CARS which is innovation, interdisciplinarity and internationality.
