Information About IPCAI 2022

The International Conference on Information Processing in Computer-Assisted Interventions (IPCAI) is one of the most important forums for innovation in the domain of computer-assisted surgery. The IPCAI conference is an international interdisciplinary conference bringing together clinicians, computer scientists, engineers, and other researchers in a unique setting. The format of the meeting is designed specifically for active engagement from the attendees. Submissions of original works are encouraged within the broad areas of interest of computer-assisted interventions and specifically in:

  • Surgical data science

  • Interventional imaging

  • Systems and software

  • Evaluation and validation

  • Tracking and navigation

  • Interventional robotics

  • Surgical planning and simulation

  • Advanced intraoperative visualization and user interfaces

  • Augmented Reality for medical applications

  • Surgical skill analysis and workflow

The 13th occurance of IPCAI is intended to be held on June 7-8, 2022 in Tokyo (Japan) in conjunction with the Computer-Assisted Radiology and Surgery (CARS) Conference. IPCAI 2022 is endorsed by the International Society of Computer-aided Surgery (ISCAS) and the Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Interventions (MICCAI) Society. The conference is currently planned to be a hybrid event with a balanced combination of in-person and virtual presentations and discussions.

IPCAI 2022 is a Hybrid Event.

Submission Deadline of Accepted Papers to IJCARS: 3 March, 2022 (11:59 pm, Pacific Time)

Regular Paper: The “classical” IPCAI submission. Once accepted for publication at IPCAI, the paper will be transferred to the International Journal of Computer Assisted Radiology and Surgery (IJCARS) for further revisions and publication as full paper in the IJCARS IPCAI Special Issue or (if required) in a regular journal issue. Submissions are in IJCARS format (Springer Nature's LateX Template), up to 12 pages (~5000 words) including abstract, tables, references, and figure captions. Intention to submit includes the title and the abstract. The abstract should be in a structured format (Purpose, Methods, Results, Conclusion) and should not exceed 250 words.

Long Abstract: Alternative to the Regular Paper, there is also the possibility to submit Long Abstracts, which are intended to showcase novel ideas, software platforms, or recent breakthroughs, including those with preliminary but limited experimental validation. Accepted Long Abstracts will be presented as oral and/or poster presentations at IPCAI. Submissions are in IJCARS format (Springer Nature's LateX Template), up to 4 pages (~1500 words). There is no need for an intention to submit.
