Next March 21st and 22nd surgeons and engineers will meet in Genoa to exchange experiences, ideas and discuss the future of surgical technologies. For the first time, the National Congress of the Italian Polispecialistic Society of Young Surgeons (SPIGC) will be completely merged with the Joint Workshop on Computer/Robot Assisted Surgery (CRAS) in a large event dedicated to ENCOURAGE YOUNG SURGEONS AND ENGINEERS.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
One event, two conferences - merged together!
-------------------------------------------------------------------
CRAS+SPIGC 2019 will be a UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY for multi-cultural interactions, for identifying surgical needs and potential engineering solutions, and for the establishment of new multi-disciplinary collaborations.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Large joint conference
-------------------------------------------------------------------
We are currently expecting the participation of about 1000 surgeons and over 100 engineers/scientists. 

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Joint sessions

Science and engineering presentations will be embedded into closely related medically-oriented sessions. Major topics include:
* Minimally invasive surgery
* Robotic surgery
* Surgical staplers and suturing technologies
* Trauma and resuscitation
* Endoscopy and endoscopic surgery
* Microsurgery
* Endovascular surgery
* Rehabilitation and enhanced recovery after surgery
