The integration of new technical infrastructure and technologies as well as the variety of resulting information present new challenges for physicians, engineers and manufacturers. To empower a new generation of young scientists to meet these challenges and carry out future projects, the Innovation Center Computer Assisted Surgery (ICCAS) at university Leipzig plans to hold his 7th Digital Operating Room Summer School (DORS).

DORS is primarily aimed at graduates, doctoral students, post-docs and senior scientists from research and industry with a multidisciplinary background. The five-day intensive course with an attractive, varied program will comprise lectures, hands-on sessions, visits to operating rooms and individual workshops, giving the participants an extensive overview of medical technology in digital operating rooms from different angles along with insights into current research projects and problems.


Modern medical treatment is characterized by an increasing number of various technological elements such as technical medical instruments, medical information systems, imaging components and surgical assistance systems. The need for research and development into new medical systems and networked applications for methods of treatment is growing rapidly. This applies in particular to the scientific fields of medicine, computer science, engineering and mathematics. If they are to support individual treatment for patients in the best way possible, new technologies have to be integrated into the clinical environment. Moreover, these systems need to be able to communicate and interact both with each other and with the hospital’s IT system.
