ComputerWorld Honors Award 2002

Le Professeur Jacques Marescaux a obtenu son second Computerworld Honors Program Award dans la catégorie médecine en juin 2002 à Washington D.C. Cette reconnaissance a rendu hommage aux travaux de recherche de l’IRCAD/EITS pour un projet qui a été réalisé en partenariat avec France Télécom et Computer Motion.
Moins d’un an après « l’Opération Lindbergh », grande première dans l’histoire de la chirurgie rendue possible grâce aux ingénieurs de France Télécom qui ont su maîtriser les délais de transmission liés à la distance, l’IRCAD/EITS s’est vu décerner un prix de l’une des plus prestigieuses institutions américaines : le Computerworld Honors Award.

Un millier de projets provenant de 35 pays ont été soumis. 321 dossiers ont été sélectionnés parmi lesquels 7 finalistes ont été retenus dans la catégorie « médecine », dont l’IRCAD/EITS, dirigé par le Pr. Marescaux, unique candidat européen a avoir obtenu un prix.
Les finalistes ont été sélectionnés par un jury d’experts de renom sur des critères aussi variés que l’impact sur la société, l’importance de la technologie de l’information, la nouveauté de la recherche, le succès et les difficultés rencontrées.

COVID19: IRCAD sanitary measures & health pass

Please note that the IRCAD administrative board and staff are closely monitoring the evolving COVID-19 situation, in full compliance with all applicable laws and regulations in France. The health, safety, and well-being of our participants, experts and staff are our top priority!
Despite the current context, the IRCAD stands firmly by your side to help you acquire knowledge and skills. Come and join us !

We would like to draw your attention that the « Vaccine Pass » is now mandatory in France since end of January 2022 and replaces the former « Health Pass » to access places that are open to the public, such as cinemas, museums, cafés and restaurants, hotels as well as the IRCAD Institute which welcomes participants in the framework of its courses and seminars. Thus, a PCR test without vaccination is no longer sufficient to take part in our courses.

The vaccine pass includes a proof of the following (one of the 3 items is sufficient):

  • The vaccination certificate, proving that persons have a complete vaccination (as of January 15, 2022, all persons aged 18 and over must receive a booster dose no more than 7 months after their last injection or Covid infection to receive a valid vaccination pass. As of February 15, 2022, the time limits for keeping the pass will be reduced, you will have to do your booster dose 4 months and no longer 7 months after your 2nd dose to have a complete vaccine schedule and maintain a valid vaccine pass)
  • The result of a positive RT-PCR or antigenic test attesting to the recovery of Covid, more than 11 days and less than 4 months
  • The certificate of contraindication to vaccination

Further information about the new vaccine pass can be found at :

We very much hope to be able to count on your kind understanding of those rules which have been set by the French Government and which our Institute is required to apply
