Call for Abstract

On behalf of CAOS International, I would like to warmly invite you to the 2018 CAOS meeting to be held June 6-9 in Beijing, China. In collaboration with CAOS China and the China Society of Computer Aided Surgery, we would like to gather many surgeons and researchers in this area, in order to result in a rich and fruitful exchange of ideas, information on various new technologies, as well as the formulation of future directions for CAOS.

Special Opportunity
In addition to soliciting regular paper submissions in our normal topic areas (see below), we will be offering an additional special opportunity aimed at enhancing broader discussions. In addition to the regular paper, we will call for Extended papers.
