CARS 2019 in Rennes (France): Expected Highlights

I am very pleased to host the 33rdInternational Conference on Computer Assisted Radiology and Surgery in my hometown of Rennes (France) June 17-21, 2019. Rennes is an historical city with a young heart and easy-to-live awarded lifestyle. The Conference Center named “Le Couvent des Jacobins” is exactly about it: a mix of an historical Covent and a modern building in the heart of the lively heart of the city.

CARS 2019 will be in the continuity of the great previous conferences that happened these last years from Japan, to Spain and Germany. We tried to add our own touch into the 33rdCARS.

Here is what you have to expect:

  • 40 prestigious international invited speakers
  • More than 160 selected peer reviewed talks and 135 additional posters in total on 5 days
  • One full day about AI in clinical practice
  • 5 tutorials with best experts on AR/VR, Deep learning and more
  • Dedicated scientific sessions on Digital Space Medicine, OR of the future, ERC grantees, …
  • An industrial exhibition with 14 CARS oriented companies from local SMEs on medical imaging to major stakeholders in surgical robotics

Since you do not cross the world just for listening to peoples or for giving a 12’ talk, we have prepared an important set of social events:

  • Opening CARS 2019 Ceremony on Tuesday
  • Opening Exhibition Ceremony on Wednesday
  • Job Fair and YINS event on Thursday
  • CARS 2019 farewell party on Friday
  • Free city guided tours on Thursday
  • B2B system to meet on Thursday

And, since France is also known about “cuisine”, you will have:

  • 3 Coffee breaks with local pastries every day
  • Luncheons every day
  • And Receptions every day
  • All by the awarded French caterer: Jérôme Faligot

Looking forward seeing you in Rennes,
With my best regards,

CARS 2019 President
