CIS Conferences

There are some prominent conferences around the world that professionals dealing with Computer Integrated Surgery (CIS) might be interested in. One of the highest priorities of the CISST lab is the MICCAI (Medical Image Computing and Computer-Assisted Intervention). The 2007 conference just ended in Brisbane, Australia, and the next one will be in New York in September. Check this site regularly for updates! Another annual conference is the MMVR (Medicine Meets Virtual Reality) that is always held in Long Beach, California. ICRA (IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation) is well known among engineers, the next one will be in Pasadena, California in May. Another huge IEEE related event is the EMBC's annual meeting (Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society), stay up to date on the next conference in Vancouver here. The triannual IFAC (International Federation of Automatic Control) Symposium on Modelling and Control in Biomedical Systems should also be considered relevant. The last event took place in Reims, France, 2006. Several other scientific organizations are having conferences in this field. The MIRA (Minimally Invasive Robotic Association) annual conference will be in Rome, late January. The 19th International Conference of SMIT (Society for Medical Innovation & Technology) 2007 will come shortly in Japan. The ATA (American telemedicine Association) Annual Meeting will be in Seattle, April 2008. Last but not least, I would like to raize the attention that beside the biannual Summer University on Surgical Robotics in Montpellier, there will be a similar event organized next September at the ERC CISST in Baltiomore, primarily for higher year PhD students. Details will follow later.
There are several other international conferences that might deal with surgical robotics, please feel free to add any by commenting this post!
