CURAC 2018

German Society for Computer- and Robot-Assisted Surgery

This year the Innovation Center for Computer-Assisted Surgery (ICCAS) of the University of Leipzig organizes the 17th Annual Meeting of the German Society for Computer- and Robot-Assisted Surgery (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Computer- und Roboterassistierte Chirurgie) "CURAC" from 13th to 15th September 2018 in Leipzig, the fastest growing city in Germany.

The CURAC has been the central forum for technical developments and clinical applications in the field of computer- and robot-assisted surgery and actively and successfully links these two fields and enables intensive professional dialogue between users and developers since 2002.

The CURAC 2018 pursues the "No Limits" of research and development in the most diverse fields of computer- and robot-assisted surgery.
