The Information Processing in Computer-Assisted Interventions (IPCAI) is one of the most important forums to innovation in the domain of computer-assisted surgery. The IPCAI conference is a truly international interdisciplinary conference bringing clinicians, computer scientists, engineers, and other researchers at a unique setting. The format of the meeting is designed specifically for active engagement from the attendees.
IPCAI is a premiere international forum for technical innovations, system development and clinical studies in computer assisted interventions (CAI). Submissions of original works are encouraged within the broad areas of CAI and specifically in:
All accepted papers are eligible for, after appropriate revisions, publishing as full papers in a regular issue of the International Journal of Computer Assisted Radiology and Surgery (IJCARS) and indexed in PubMed.
For the first time, IPCAI will provide an opportunity for the CAI community to showcase scientific breakthroughs and novel ideas. Authors will be able to submit Long Abstracts to be presented as oral and poster presentations at IPCAI. The focus of these Long Abstracts will be on:
Long Abstracts will be peer-reviewed based on novelty and potential interest to the IPCAI audience. Another call with details will follow closer to the Long Abstract deadline of January 11, 2019.
All papers accepted at IPCAI are intended to be published in a special issue of the International Journal of Computer Assisted Radiology and Surgery (IJCARS) after all revisions recommended during the review process have been addressed.
For this reason, papers submitted to IPCAI follow a two-step review process, described below.
Step (1): IPCAI review process: The submissions are reviewed by two committees to ensure high quality papers suitable for presentation at IPCAI and publication in IJCARS:
Note: These two AC roles are designed to reduce any possible bias arising from knowledge of the identity of the reviewers in the single-blind process.
The timeline of the review process is as follows:
Step (2): IJCARS review process
