Call For Papers

The operation room is the most expensive area in hospitals. To optimize operating room management, connected devices which are communicating and sharing data with other peripheral devices are necessary. By analyzing available data of these connected devices, actions of surgical staff and other data in the operating room and parallel matching of all available data with dedicated workflow models, will make context-aware operating rooms possible. These context-aware operating rooms could help to prevent surgical errors i.e. by automated detection of deviations from the standard processes or even automate counting of consumables and prevent them from being remained in the patients´ cavity.
This workshop covers the acquisition, analysis, as well as modeling and monitoring of surgical processes and the integration of all information acquired during anamnesis, i.e. anatomy of patient, diagnostic information, etc. in process models. To achieve the main goal of a context-aware operating rooms, a close cooperation of clinicians, researchers and engineers is necessary. Therefore this will be an interdisciplinary workshop, interactive demonstrations are welcome.

The topics to be covered by the workshop include but are not limited to:
• Context-aware operating rooms
• Modeling of surgical procedures
• Recognition of surgical steps
• Interoperability of devices in the operating room
• Standards for data sharing of different medical devices
• Surgical data acquisition
• Intuitive/ adaptive user interfaces for medical devices
• Data mining in surgery
• Surgical sensor networks
• Automatic surgery documentation
• Automated operating room management/scheduling
