Welcome to the Hanseatic City of Hamburg!

We cordially invite you to the 19th Annual Conference of the German Society for Computer- and Robot-Assisted Surgery in Hamburg. Hamburg is not only a cosmopolitan port and Hanseatic city, but also, together with the region, home to numerous medical technology companies, clinics and universities. The organisation of the event at the Technical University of Hamburg is therefore carried out in cooperation with our partners, in particular the Research Centre for Medical Technology in Hamburg, which is supported jointly with the University Clinic Eppendorf. The centre spans the Elbe and bridges the gap between the specialist disciplines, which has always been an important concern of CURAC.

More information will soon be available here.

We look forward to lively interest, numerous participants and stimulating contributions!

Informations for Authors

The contributions to CURAC are published in the Current Directions in Biomedical Engineering and can thus be found as a clearly visible open access publication. Please submit your four-page, English-language articles via the ConfTool. The formatting should follow the templates for Word (link will be available here soon) or LaTex (link will be available here soon).

We kindly ask you to register yourself and the title of your contribution in the ConfTool by April 20th, 2020. The deadline for submission as a Word document or LaTex project with all source data is May 15, 2020. Due to the necessary lead time at the publisher, we have little scope to extend the deadline.
