The joint 18th AE-CAI, 10th CARE and 6th OR 2.0 workshop will bring together researchers, clinicians, and medical companies that are working on advancing the field of Medical Imaging and Augmented Reality, Augmented Environments for Computer Assisted Interventions (AE-CAI), Computer Assisted and Robotic Endoscopy (CARE) and Context-Aware Operating Theaters (OR 2.0). This workshop will feature high-quality, original papers and invited keynote presentations on the latest scientific, technical and translational advances in developing the next generation of AE-CAI, CARE and OR systems.


Paper Submission Deadline: June 24th, 2024   June 29th, 2024
Notification of Acceptance: July 15th
Response to Reviewers and Revised Manuscripts Due: TBC
Camera-ready Papers Due & Presenting Author Registration Deadline: TBD
Workshop: Oct 6th, 2023


Workshop proceedings will be published in a Special Issue on AE-CAI | CARE | OR 2.0 of Wiley’s Healthcare Technology Letters journal. Please format your manuscripts using Wiley’s HTL style before submission. Submissions should be double blind.

**Please note that Wiley’s HTL is an open access journal and the publisher agreed to a 15% discount on the Article Processing Charge (APC) of $2,000 USD. There are waivers for low income low- and lower middle-income countries.


We encourage submission of papers that demonstrate clinical relevance, clinical applications and validation studies. We encourage the submission of papers describing bold new ideas, proof of concepts, early-stage prototypes and innovative ways to make such tools more accessible, affordable and environmentally friendly, rather than incremental improvements. Topics to be addressed include:

  • Augmented, virtual and mixed reality
  • Medical image visualization and understanding
  • Surgical simulation and training
  • Image-guided and robotic surgery
  • HCI considerations in computer-assisted surgery
  • Accessible and affordable surgical technologies
  • Robotic and navigated endoscopy
  • Stereoscopic and ultrasound endoscopy
  • Endoscopy skill training and evaluation
  • Endoscope tracking, navigation, planning and simulation
  • Endoscopic video computing and computer vision for endoscopic applications
  • Surgical training and assessment
  • Context-Aware Operating Theatres and team communication
  • Cognitive models for clinical environment, intervention and training
  • Sensors, wearable and implantable electronics
  • Decision support networks to enhance surgical procedural assistance
