AI in Orthopaedics

Abstract submission

Clinicians, scientists and technologists are invited to submit abstracts for a poster presentation at the AI in Orthopaedics Conference, held at The Royal College of Surgeons of England on 27 September 2022. This will be the first national conference dedicated to the role of AI (including Machine Learning and the application of Big Data) within orthopaedics. It provides an opportunity to share your research and ideas with policy makers, NHS leaders, senior clinicians, technologists and potential investors.

The importance of AI within healthcare, including orthopaedics, is broadly accepted. The challenge is to accelerate its application to deliver benefits at scale – helping the tens of thousands of people suffering from poor MSK health and increasing capacity across our healthcare system.

Additionally, the top 5 abstracts will be invited to give a 3-minute oral presentation at the conference.

Deadline: Sunday 31 July 2022

Please ensure you have read the abstract submission guidelines below before applying.
