Workshop Overview
The goal of this full-day workshop is to bring together researchers, clinicians, and medical companies to help advance the scientific research in the field of CARE to boost current endoscopic interventions. 

Endoscopic interventions are a complicated procedure relative to surgical knowledge and skills. CARE will integrate multimodal information relative to the patient anatomy, the control status of medical endoscopes and surgical accessory tools, and the actions of surgical staffs to guide endoscopic interventions. To realize CARE systems, recent technical advances associated with computer vision, graphics, robotics, and medical imaging, external tracking systems, medical device controls systems, information processing techniques, endoscopy planning and simulation should be introduced for a thorough analysis on CARE. 

The technical program of this workshop will be comprised of previously unpublished, contributed, and invited papers. Original and high-quality papers are encouraged to submit concentrated on innovative research and development in the analysis of Computer-Assisted and Robotic Endoscopy.

Topics of interests include but are not limited to: 
- Navigated endoscopy
- Robotic endoscopy
- Robotic capsules for endoscopy 
- Stereoscopic endoscopy 
- Ultrasound endoscopy
- Virtual endoscopy
- Endoscope tracking and navigation techniques
- Interventional imaging in endoscopy
- Endoscopic video computing
- Computer vision for endoscopic applications
- Virtual and mixed reality
- Visualization and user interface techniques 
- Endoscopy planning and simulation
- Endoscopy skill training and evaluation
- Human factors in endoscopic interventions

Publication & Submission
Papers will be published on proceedings of Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).

All manuscripts for CARE 2015 are uploaded by Paper Submission System (check CARE'15 website) provided by Microsoft Research. Submission should follow LNCS Format. CARE reviewing will be double-blind. Each submission will be selected by several program committee members for originality, significance, clarity, soundness, relevance and technical contents.
