The goal of the Symposium is to convene in Israel clinicians, scientists, and engineers actively interested in medical imaging, computer science, and robotics, and their application to the planning, monitoring, and execution of medical surgeries. The symposium is the sequel of fourteen ISRACAS symposia, held since 1998 in Jerusalem, Haifa, and Tel-Aviv. Each was attended by 100-150 participants including clinicians, industry, and engineering academia. The events included invited speakers, oral presentations of refereed papers, industrial exhibits, and system demonstrations.
This year ISRACAS will be held in conjunction with the 4th Israeli Conference on Robotics (ICR 2013). We expect that this co-location will give rise to synergies and fruitful collaborations.
This year the one-day symposium will consist of two sessions and an internationally recognized invited speaker.
Relevant research in Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering, Biomechanics, and Electrical Engineering including but not limited to:
- Medical robotics
- Surgical simulators
- Multi-modal image reconstruction, segmentation, and registration
- Virtual and augmented reality surgery
- Computer-aided diagnosis and preoperative planning
- Intraoperative surgical monitoring, support, and planning
- Anatomical modeling, atlases
All medical specialties include but are not limited to:
- Radiology, interventional radiology
- Orthopaedics and traumatology
- Laparoscopy, endoscopy, arthroscopy
- Cardiovascular surgery
- Maxillofacial and craniofacial surgery
We particularly encourage the submission of works describing clinical experience with computer-aided surgery systems.
Potential contributors are requested to submit abstracts of up to 2000 characters (including spaces) on any of the topics mentioned above by July 19, 2013. Guidelines on the format and submission can be found on the Paper Submission tag of the ICR conference web site. Please select Medical Robotics (ISRACAS) as the Primary subject of your submission.
Authors of accepted abstracts may submit an extended abstract or full-length paper by September 15, 2013. The accepted abstracts and papers will be published as part of the ICR conference proceedings which will be distributed to the conference participants.
