About the conference:

In 2023, the International Society for Computer-Assisted Orthopaedic Surgery (CAOS) built on the success of our return to in-person meetings at the CAOS 2022 meeting through an exciting program at CAOS 2023 in Pattaya, Thailand. In addition to the Society's traditional strengths in the development and discussion of navigation and robotics technologies, this year's meeting strengthen our burgeoning expertise in emerging, broad CAOS domains including novel sensors, software, advanced planning, and clinical workflows, to name a few.

We wish to thank all of the authors and program committee members for their time and effort, which made this volume possible. We would also like to thank all of the sponsors and partners that supported this meeting.
