The NextMed / MMVR Conference

In 1992, the "Medicine Meets Virtual Reality" conference first presented a daring vision of healthcare transformed by newly accessible computer-based technologies. Participants explored how simulation, modeling, visualization, robotics, data networks, and ancillary tools could make medical therapy and education more precise, effective, and affordable. 

The evolving "NextMed/MMVR" continues to attract international researchers committed to intelligent healthcare: engineers, clinicians, educators, industry, military, students, futurists, and others. Analyzing progress across disciplines, they nurture a collaborative language that better assesses current challenges and enables improved outcomes.

Over two decades, medical virtual reality—along with the broader integration of IT with medicine—has advanced remarkably. And the vision shared at this conference still inspires with its creative mix of provocative thinking and validated investigation. 

Update! The dates of NextMed/MMVR22 remain pending. Late winter or early spring 2016 appears likely. The Call for Presentations will open about 9 months before the conference, with the submission deadline about 7 months before.

1st MMVR / IFCARS Joint Conference on Human Machine Interface

In collaboration with the CARS Congress, we are holding a session on human-machine interface technology in Barcelona on June 24. It will include submitted papers and invited lectures. CARS is an outstanding international gathering and it is a pleasure to share the topic with that research community. 

MMVR/IFCARS co-chairs are Ramin Shahidi PhD and Dave Warner MD PhD, members of our own Organizing Committee.

This session is organized as part of CARS, so please see its website for details, including registration information.
