MICCAI Workshop: Systems and Architectures for Computer Assisted Interventions (SACAI)
Date: September 26, 2013
Venue: Toyoda Auditorium Complex, Higashiyama Campus, Nagoya University, Nagoya, Japan
SACAI 2013 is a workshop of MICCAI 2013. The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for sharing developments in systems and architectures for computer assisted intervention (CAI) applications. Continuing the success of the last five years, the workshop will focus on open interfaces, interoperability, and standards. This sixth edition will include a broader forum for poster/interactive demonstrations, and expert panel insights into practical issues, clinical applications and future directions of CAI systems and frameworks. As in its previous iterations, the workshop will continue the tradition of strong participation from both industry and academia.
Topics of interest
Architectures and frameworks for Computer Assisted Interventions & Surgery
Open source / creative commons activities for Computer Assisted Interventions & Surgery
Systems / hardware integration
Digital operating room
Applications for Computer Assisted Interventions & Surgery
Applications for medical staff / patient communication
Progress and status of standardization, such as DICOM, IHE, CANopen, ISO 11073, MD FIRE, MD ICE, IEC 80001
Open issues in the standardization process, e.g. semantics, standardized descriptions of components and device communication
Regulatory and liability issues and solutions for the modularization of CAI systems
Opportunities for further integration, interoperability and/or usability
