  • Reminder - CAOS International Annual Meeting, Feb. 7-10, Davos

    Final Reminder:

    Computer Assisted Orthopaedic Surgery
    February 7th ? 10th, 2001
    Davos, Switzerland

    The CAOS-International Symposium is the premier international
    forum on the use of a new breed of computer based tools in
    orthopaedic surgery. CAOS - 2001 will be the 1st Annual
    Meeting of the International Society for Computer Assisted
    Surgery (CAOS - International). The Society was founded by
    more then 200 members in 2000 to bring together those
    individuals throughout the world, who, by their contributions
    and activities both in the area of research and clinical study
    were interested in the computer based technologies for
    orthopaedic surgery. Its further purpose is to serve as a
    forum for the exchange of information of both an investigative
    and clinical nature. This will be accomplished by holding
    annual meetings throughout the world.

    The 1st Annual Scientific Meeting of CAOS - International will
    continue with the well-established format of the past five
    CAOS - Symposia. The meeting has been extended to four days
    to allow break out discussion time. In addition it will
    include an exciting social program for delegates and their
    partners. CAOS 2001 will be held in Davos, Switzerland. It
    will continue the tradition of multi-speciality,
    interdisciplinary symposia presenting the most recent
    innovations in this rapidly evolving field. CAOS is for
    physicians, surgeons, health care providers, researchers,
    entrepreneurs, educators, and investors interested in these
    computer based technologies.

    The objectives of the symposium are to present the most
    current thinking on the impact of computer assisted surgical
    techniques on the daily clinical and surgical routine, to
    educate surgeons in the use of these techniques, and to
    promote a new partnership between surgeons and technologists
    as a necessary basis for the successful hospital integration
    of computer assisted surgery systems.

    The format at the meeting will consist of invited lectures
    presented by an internationally recognized faculty as well as
    presentations of submitted papers reviewed by a distinguished
    program committee. It will provide ample opportunity for
    personal interaction with faculty and other symposium
    participants and will be an unique educational experience for
    practicing orthopaedic surgeons. In ten hands-on workshops,
    leading experts in the field will present state-of-the-art CAS
    systems to groups of participants.

    The CAOS-Symposium is known as a premier interactive forum on
    orthopaedic surgery and interactive computer based
    technologies. Consequently, an industrial exhibition is
    organized which will demonstrate hands-on technology for
    surgical planning, simulation, execution, and documentation,
    covering a wide range of recent developments in this area. The
    exhibits will be available to the participants for the whole
    duration of the conference.
