Abstract submission

In 2024, the International Society for Computer-Assisted Orthopaedic Surgery (CAOS) will hold its 23rd Annual Meeting in Groningen, the Netherlands. In addition to the Society’s traditional strengths in the development and discussion of navigation and robotics technologies, this year’s meeting will continue to strengthen our burgeoning expertise in emerging, broad CAOS domains including novel sensors, machine learning, artificial intelligence, advanced planning, and clinical workflows, to name a few. To step into this new world and as a society dedicated to continuous innovation in orthopaedics, we welcome papers that are opening new doors and new ways of thinking. To see if your work fits with this conference, review the List of Topics below and our past Open Access Proceedings.
