    Second Call for Paper

    International Symposium on

    Surgery Simulation and Soft Tissue Modeling

    June 12-13, 2003
    Juan-Les-Pins, France,
    Palais des Congres


    ************************************************** *****************************


    This symposium will be organized by INRIA Sophia-Antipolis in order
    to provide an international forum for researchers interested in the
    advances and applications of Surgery Simulation and Soft Tissue Modeling
    that are at the confluence between medical image processing and

    It will be held at the occasion of the celebration of INRIA's 20th
    and in the spirit and continuation of the workshop organized by Gabor
    and Jim Duncan in Boston in 1998, and the 3rd Caesarium workshop
    organized by E. Keeve in Bonn in 2001.

    The symposium includes but is not limited to the following topics:

    - Anatomical Modeling from histological and medical images.
    - Biomechanical Modeling of soft and hard tissues.
    - Validation of biomechanical models
    - Physiological Modeling : vascular, respiratory and digestive systems,
    electro-physiology, etc.
    - Segmentation, tracking, non-rigid registration based on
    biomechanical/physiological modeling.
    - Simulators for training and rehearsal
    - Coupling between pre-operative and intra-operative medical images
    - Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality tools for simulation and surgery
    - Real-time visual, auditory and haptic interactions
    - Simulators in the operating room.
