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 1985, CARS has played a leading role in medical and imaging informatics for more than 25 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 ISCAS and EuroPACS societies, and CAR, CAD and CMI organizations. Following the long term successful cooperation, in many parts of the world, in 2014 these prestigious scientific communities will jointly hold their annual meetings as part of the 28th CARS Congress in Fukuoka, Japan. The CARS Congress Organizing Committee invites you to come to Fukuoka in June 25 – 28, 2014, for an extraordinary event in which scientific/medical presentations as well as stimulating discussions will foster new visions on the future of medicine. At the CARS Congress you will have the opportunity to meet scholars and practising experts in the fields of radiology, surgery, engineering, informatics and healthcare management who have an interest in topics, such as image- and model-guided interventions advanced medical imaging image processing and visualization intelligent operating room of the future decision and action support in surgical management computer aided diagnosis medical simulation and evaluation, and e-Learning surgical navigation and robotics model-guided and personalised medicine New PACS applications, including IT-infrastructures adapted for the operating room, related results from the DICOM and IHE working groups, but in particular, new methods and IT-tools for modelling the patient and medical processes are increasingly shaping the scope of CARS. Clinical specialties represented at CARS include: Computer Aided Neuro-, ENT-, Orthopaedic and Spinal Surgery, Cardiovascular- and Thoracic Surgery, Gastroenterological-, Gynaecological- and Urological Surgery Imaging and Interventional Radiology Computed Maxillofacial Imaging Computer Assisted Radiation Therapy Image Guided Navigation Surgery Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery Additional events will take place during CARS 2014 in Fukuoka, such as tutorials and hands-on training for biomedical engineers, a full IFCARS/ISCAS clinical day on management of liver tumour as well as the IPCAI and ACCAS annual conferences. Social events will accompany the conference, such as the opening ceremony and a boat cruise in Hakata’s bay. Scholarships are available for helping students and junior researchers to attend the conference. Please note that the deadline for paper and abstract submissions for CARS 2014 in Fukuoka is January 10, 2014. Recent successful CARS congresses have taken place in Berlin, Paris, Tokyo, San Francisco, London, Chicago, Osaka, Barcelona, Geneva, Pisa, and Heidelberg.
