1st JOINT SYMPOSIUM ON 

DIGITAL PATHOLOGY AND AI IN THE DACH REGION

Thursday, February 3rd 2022

Digital pathology & AI are transforming our approach to diagnostics, education and research. This joint symposium aims to share experiences from Germany (D), Austria (A) and Switzerland (CH), together called the DACH region, to address challenges in digital pathology, showcase on-going research, initiate open exchanges and intensify opportunities for collaboration.
In English, the German word DACH translates to “roof”,  a fitting symbol for our common goals in digital pathology and beyond.
