Digital Oncology Conference 2023

A CCC-N and Else Kröner Symposium - March 15 and 16, 2023

The Digital Oncology Conference 2023 is a scientific symposium and networking platform of digital oncology research to promote interdisciplinary and interprofessional cooperation.

The research conference will take place at the Deutsche Messe Hannover on March 15 and 16, 2023.

Big data in cancer research, artificial intelligence in diagnostics or planning virtual tumor boards for interdisciplinary treatment - digital innovations have had a massive impact on oncology in recent years and are indispensable in everyday medical practice. At the Digital Oncology Conference we want to give an overview about the potentials and challenges of implementing digital approaches in cancer research and health care. 


National and international speakers present their current research on digital health

Topics included:

  • Digital and Computational Histopathology
  • AI to Advance Cancer Imaging
  • Digital Surgery
  • Machine Learning and Visualization Techniques for Clinical Decision Support in Oncology
  • AI and Machine Learning Techniques Improving Cancer Research
  • Building Trust in Artificial Intelligence Models and Digital Methods in Medical Education

Participation and Organization

Researchers, scientists and clinicians with a focus on translational cancer research, digital health, machine learning techniques and computational methods in medical treatment and diagnosis as well as colleagues and partners of the CCC-N network are invited to register for the event. Registration is open now!

The event is organized by the CCC-N translational research team (Prof. Dr. Michael Heuser, MHH and Prof. Dr. Günter Schneider, UMG) in cooperation with the Deutsche Messe AG. The event is supported by the Else-Kröner-Fresenius Foundation (EKFS).
