Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic in Europe and the rest of the world, the Organizing Committee of the 33rd SMIT 2021 Conference in Oslo, Norway has decided to move this year’s conference to January 17 – 19, 2022. We hereby cordially invite you to join us in Oslo in January 2022. We anticipate arrivals on the 16th of January in order to be able to join the program starting Monday morning at the 17th.

The scientific committee of SMIT2021 invites you to submit research or innovative work as an abstract for SMIT2021 within October the 18th.

All abstracts must be submitted electronically through the conference website.

All submitted abstracts will be peer-reviewed and assigned to an appropriate session. Notification on acceptance will be sent through email by early November 2021. Accepted contributions will be selected into two groups; Poster presentation or Oral presentation.

Original work can also be reviewed as a journal publication in MITAT (the journal of Minimally Invasive Therapy & Allied Technologies, (www.tandfonline.com/toc/imit20/current). Those abstracts accepted here will present at a special MITAT-session at the SMIT-conference. Your work will anyway be evaluated for Poster or Oral presentation if not accepted for the MITAT-track. A separate peer-review process will be performed on a full paper of your work if accepted for the MITAT-session. Please indicate on the abstract registration form if you want your work to also be reviewed for publication in MITAT.

The 33rd SMIT Conference will have a special focus on topics like Hybrid Operating rooms, Artificial Intelligence, Innovation in Healthcare, Minimally Invasive Therapy and Intervention, Value-based Healthcare, Robotic Surgery and Automation, Surgical Navigation and Visualization and Health Technology for Third world countries.

We anticipate that the 33rd SMIT Conference will gain interest whether you are a medical doctor or engineer from different technological disciplines, work at a hospital or in the industry. We aim to bring together doctors and engineers with a special interest in medical technology and minimally invasive therapy. This is the place to be to see cutting edge tech for the operating suites.

At this conference, we also hope to give the industry an excellent showcase of the latest research, knowledge and products within the field of minimally invasive therapy to national and international stakeholders.

The conference will be held at Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel. The main venue is large enough that the hotel can accommodate for current social distancing rules and take all necessary safety measures and precautions. We will offer workshops and live streaming from our advanced hybrid-ORs at The Intervention Centre at Oslo University Hospital with possibilities for hands-on experiences.

We look forward to seeing you in Oslo!
