Our network organises tri-annual events which take place at partner institutes across the UK. These events are designed to put the spotlight on areas of specialist IGT research, stimulate new ideas and promote collaborations. The network offers its members funding support for travel to these events. We also list a range of other IGT events from the community, if you would like to add your listing please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The integration of new technical infrastructure and technologies as well as the variety of resulting information present new challenges for physicians, engineers and manufacturers. To empower a new generation of young scientists to meet these challenges and carry out future projects, the Innovation Center Computer Assisted Surgery (ICCAS) at university Leipzig plans to hold his 5th Digital Operating Room Summer School (DORS).
The event will cover the latest in innovative computer-assisted technologies as well as the current state of progress in clinical practice and research and is primarily aimed at graduates, doctoral students, post-docs and senior scientists from research and industry with a multidisciplinary background.
The five-day intensive course has a varied program including lectures, hands-on sessions, visits to operating rooms and individual workshops, giving the participants an extensive overview of medical technology.
Practical demonstrations include:
