iVAS: International Virtual Association of Surgeons

iVAS has announced it’s first virtual conference to be held on 22nd April 2008:

iVAS is a group of surgeons and scientists who want to change the way scientific communications are currently conducted, we will organise conferences entirely within the virtual world. This lowers the cost of attending, negates the need to travel and creates novel surgical research networks across the world.

The First iVAS conference will be held on the 22nd April 2008, the themes will be on: Surgical Technology, Education, Robotics and Simulations.

The aim is to use virtual worlds as a novel method for collaboration and dissemination of surgical research.

This is being run as part of Imperial College’s Second Health project (www.secondhealth.org.uk).
